Welfare includes programs such as unemployment, social security, health care, and more. Welfare was not created for a permanent solution to families in need of financial help. Welfare was created to help needy families get back on their feet though hard times. One main reason for mandatory drug testing is that taxpayers believe recipients should be drug tested to receive their money if they get drug tested to get a job. Drug testing could save money by removing drug users from receiving unnecessary financial help.
The dependent variable is the blood glucose level. The control within the experiment is something that minimizes the effect of other third party variables other than the independent variable. Having the control is crucial because we want to ensure that the drug we are testing does what we predicted it to do. In this case we want to test if the Avandia actually controls blood sugar levels within the body. The control group would be the group that receives the placebo drug.
(Claffey, 2018) The best way to reduce the risk of medication errors is to enquire about which orders wouldn't be appropriate to give to the patient based on their condition. (Claffey, 2018) In addition to successfully completing a physical assessment on the patient, the practitioner must also view the patient holistically, and always report near-miss medication errors. (Claffey, 2018) Given that nurses are the ones administering the medication, they should be able to justify as to why the patient is receiving the drug and if it is safe for the patient to be given that specific dosage. (Claffey, 2018) As technology evolves, having an electronic entry for medication may perhaps help reduce the risk of many errors in a busy environment. (Claffey,
Activists play a great role in regards to influencing the policies of pharmaceutical companies. In the two films, the constant gardener and Lorenzo’s oil adequately showed activism. Both films show how activism influences. However, the films differ in regards to how pharmaceutical companies operate. In Lorenzo’s oil, the film is oriented through family issues and how pharmaceutical companies helped them to find cure for the their child; however, in The constant gardener, the pharmaceutical companies are going against people to gain money (Do).
In order to reduce the likelihood of Adderall abuse, it is essential that there should be a stricter policy in order to be prescribed to Adderall, or any other stimulant medication. In addition, it should be addressed the importance of taking the correct dosage and understand the potential side-effects when abusing the medication. Adderall can increase your energy level and even cause euphoria, which makes it easy to not take the correct dosage prescribed (Hall, 2012). Restrictions need to be tougher in order to get a prescription and regulated more carefully. My suggestion to reduce the medication misuse, on a micro level, is that a contract should be signed before the prescription is written.
Education about overdose or providing referrals to medical and social services such as health screenings are offered. Also, incorporating harm reduction strategies into public health interventions for people who inject drugs may be helpful in resolving other health care (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2016). One argument against Needle Exchange programs is that by providing needles and syringes to addicts, the government is essentially condoning illicit and immoral behavior (“Debate: Needle exchanges”). Drug users are continuously given free access of clean utensil to shoot up. Instead of providing them access, the government should focus on punishing drug users, discourage drug-use, and provide more treatment for quitting
Harm reduction refers to the practices, programs, and policies that are used to mitigate the harms associated with substance abuse in individuals who are unwilling or unable to stop. Harm reduction is used to prevent harm, rather than preventing drug use itself, and focuses on individuals who continue to use drugs. Examples of harm reduction include needle exchange programs, methadone clinics, and supervised injection facilities. The Goals of Harm Reduction Harm reduction is based on the perception that substance abusers are unwilling or unable to stop using drugs. Therefore, the goals of harm reduction include prevention and prevention of the overall level of drug use.
One of the most controversial matters of today is the HPV vaccine. While some individuals view the vaccine as a preventative measure, others view it as the cause of a variety of medical issues, as well as, a free pass to be promiscuous. New York Times’ personal health columnist Jane Brody addresses some of the alleged cons associated with the HPV vaccine in her article “The Underused HPV Vaccine”. Brody’s purpose in writing this article is to inform about the misconceptions about the vaccine and, ultimately, convince the adult readers that it is more beneficial to be vaccinated than harmful. Brody’s appeal to logic, application of ethos, and choice of diction effectively convinces the audience that the HPV vaccine should be utilized to their
The main focus here would be to make patients aware of the laws that are set in place that allow them to care. Also, letting them know that if a patient denies them care or provides them less care than other patients. Another problem we are faced with is the fact that if we argue that patients have rights, then we also must look at the rights of the physician. That is why all of these laws have come about, because basically the patient is putting their lives in the hands of the physician. The physician has decided to go into this career and this career is for human service.
A percentage of the population doesn’t consider prescription drugs very dangerous because they are prescribed by doctors. Unfortunately, that's true and it is very concerning to other people who are aware of the problem. We as a community must help each other and inform each other about the effects prescription drugs have. These types of drugs develop addicts which can be treated effectively depending the type of drug they took. There are two main treatments behavioral treatment and medications.
