There have been numerous studies performed, both in the past and present, that provide researchers with information in the field of psychology. Many of these studies involve human participants, such as classic studies like the Strange Situation, the Study of Obedience, and the Stanford Prison Experiment. While there are potential benefits to including human participants in psychological research, the ethics behind the involvement of people in such studies, including the abovementioned studies, can be a controversial topic (Youngpeter 1). While there are both advantages and disadvantages to most things in life, it is my position that involving people in psychological research is a positive thing that can provide researchers and even everyday
The Institutional Review Board (IRB) was given the opportunity to give independent and prospective review and approval prior to the study beginning. Participation was voluntary for the women applying for identification. They were informed they could withdraw at any time if they wanted to and that no harm would come to them from participating. There were no incentives to any participants for completing the questionnaire. Participants were informed their survey answers would remain confidential from anyone and that all necessary steps would be taken to ensure their confidentiality would be
My fourth assignment will be discussing and analyzing presenting insights and findings. In the first part, I will be writing about different components of report. In the second part, I will be discussing and analyzing presentation and its parts. In the last part, I will be adding my point of view including recommendation and will be ending my assignment with conclusion and references.
Conflict between individual good and the common good is at the core of this issue; hence it is really important to note that California seems to set the trends that the rest of the country has a tendency to follow. Of course the common good is always defined by the State, or the group of usually power hungry people who have gained control of the helm of Government. The United States has a responsibility of preventing illnesses and death, but not at the cost of our freedom to choose what is best for our family and individual needs. Of course the individual’s decision should be a well informed and educated one not a choice the state should make for us, but to help guide us in the right direction to make a confident choice. Vaccinations are felt to be one our healthiest actions. However, a moral dilemma lies in the balance of personal autonomy and choice versus protection of the risk of the entire population. During public emergencies such as an epidemic, of course vaccines should be mandated for mankind, but otherwise the decision should be a personal
There are numerous evidences present in the literature to support the usefulness of vaccination for the treatment of viral infections such as Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Small Pox (Public Health Agency of Canada, 2013). A person is given a shot once for these diseases and seldom need another shot. Health agencies are now able to make statement such as the eradication of Small Pox, Polio and Measles (College of Phycisian of Philadelphia, 2015). The efforts toward polio and measles eradication in the Americas have been possible only mainly because there was a very high level of political commitment and collaboration among governments of the region (Knobler, Lederberg, & Pray, 2002).
The article begins with details about a recent measles outbreak originating in Disneyland. “Although epidemiologists have not yet identified the person who brought measles to Disneyland, a new analysis shows that the highly contagious disease has spread to seven states and two other countries thanks to parents who declined to vaccinate their children” (Kaplan 1). The author of this article has been a science and medicine editor at the Los Angeles Times since 2005 however she covered technology in the Business section for 10 years. This could create bias in the article and prevent her from having a complete understanding of the topic. The statistics in the article are beneficial to the reader in understanding the likelihood of the disease being spread and the importance of
In conclusion,the article has outstanding key points. Haelle could’ve added more information to make the article a little better.She explained the outbreaks that occurred in different countries and different people. She provide examples to explain her explanation. She includes in her article that its family that are traveling is the one that 's getting the measles because they didn 't get any vaccination. Haelle did not include if the disease decreased over the years.The article would have been better because the article would of had enough keypoints. I believe the article needed more information to support the main idea of her writing. The information was very clear and it made sense.Parents should be more careful and take responsibility. The parents need to get their child or children vaccinated to prevent the spread of the disease. Children can easily be affected because of germs and it can also spread
Immunization is the process when an individual is made immune or resistant to an infectious disease, normally through vaccination (WHO, 2015). Individuals of all ages should receive a shot in order to better protect themselves and the individuals around them. In 1809, Massachusetts became the first state in the nation to require an immunization policy, since then the entire nation now has federal policies implementing vaccinations to protect the public health (Martindale-Hubbell, 2015). However, these policies are typically generated for the younger generation of the population. Federal Immunization policies in the United States are implemented solely to ensure the safety of oneself and the society as a whole. The requirements for these
Social scientists as a general collective should follow the agreed upon ethics as laid out by our textbook: voluntary participation unless it is paramount to the study 's success, no harm to the participants, safeguarding study subject’s identity through anonymity and
Changing exemptions at the state level would affect all Ohio residents, and help nurse’s facilitate change at the local and community level. Our legislators need to be made aware, and or reminded of the unnecessary disease outbreaks we have has in this county and in the state of Ohio just recently because of lack of immunizations. In 2014, Ohio suffered a large measles outbreak. There were 374 people infected with the measles in an Amish community. That same year other cases were reported in nine other counties in Ohio, which added up to almost a two-thirds of the country's total measles outbreaks in 2014 (Zeltner, 2015). On June 25, 2015, lawmakers of California voted into legislature a limit on vaccine exemptions for school-aged children because of a measles outbreak in the state during the previous winter that spread to 147 children (Reuters, 2015). This year the United States has had 592 cases of measles, and the majority of these cases are from non-vaccinated people. Being vaccinated accounts for a healthier and longer lives, especially for infants and children (Anderson, 2015). The frightening part about these outbreaks is how quickly these diseases can spread. I firmly believe these outbreaks are proof of the need and effectiveness of vaccines, and the exemption should be only be limited to
Anti-vaxxers have questioned the safety, effectiveness and necessity of vaccinations since the 19th Century. But, what happens when the freedom to choose does not solely affect the life of the individual making the choice? This was made clear in a Law and Order SVU episode, selfish. In this essay, I will argue that the Monica’s choice not to vaccinate her child was morally impermissible at the time. In doing so, I will integrate this week’s readings into the discussion and comment on how my response to the moral impermissibility of Monica’s act informs my view about mandatory vaccination laws and the legal consequences for non-compliant individuals.

Injecting diseases in children in order to prevent diseases. Though it sounds bad; It immensely beneficial. Vaccination had it expunged specific life threatening diseases that affected and killed thousands of people and people will never have to treat these life threatening diseases again. Colorado require all parents to vaccinate their children but, there are an increasing amount of parents who exempt their child from the vaccines. Their are 3 types of exemptions of vaccinations; medical, religious, and philosophical reasons. Most children in schools are vaccinated and could never be diagnosed with the listed diseases ever again. The fault goes to the parents if their children ever acquire
Looking at the nightly news, many would believe violent crimes are at an all-time high. There are not just one on one violent crimes or gang violent crimes. There is court shootings, school shootings, church shootings, theater shootings, mall shootings, workplace shootings, and others. Where most one on one crime is committed with illegal guns, mass shootings are done with handguns purchased legally. Violent crimes reported on the news while still surprising to hear and see has become very common. While the numbers seem to be overwhelming, statistics share violent crimes are at an all-time low. While the numbers of crimes are decreasing, gun ownership is increasing. Begging one to ask if the right to conceal to carry reduce
