Nurse can check if alternative treatment is available for patients, whose cultural belief prevent them from using certain medications or procedures. Communication across cultures is challenging. Most of cultural rules, values, beliefs, phobias and anxieties are absorbed subconsciously. Even in one culture, no two people would respond in exactly the same way. However, a certain level of generalization is valid to the extent that it provides clues of what the person most likely encounter.
The Critical Race Theory’s framework is a tool to assess how structural inequalities and social institutions produce an oppressive and discriminatory environment for minorities in America (Salas et al, 2010). The Theory’s use of critical thinking helps Social Workers understand and identify the target problem, and to examine how people’s history and culture have influenced, or been influenced by, past and current policies that create inequality in America (Suet et al, 2007). It also encourages Social workers to be aware of their distinct privileges, disadvantages, beliefs, values, biases, and stereotypes that they hold, so they can understand how this affects the work that they do with their clients. It is essential to apply all this knowledge
Our hypothesis predicted that poor attachment styles including avoidant and anxious attachment styles can lead to stress in intimate relationships. The result of multiple pieces of research supported our hypothesis and additional analysis revealed that poor attachment styles do not only affect the stress level of the person with the attachment style but also deal harm to the intimate relationship (Randall & Bodenmann, 2009; Doumas et al., 2008). In sum, adult attachment in romantic relationships is very complex, the attachment theory and model for adults generalized from what we have now between infant-caregiver attachment may be not sufficient. Future studies may eventually lead to an empirically confirmed understanding of how attachment styles affect or result in stress in intimate
I will be discussing how the care in David story was dehumanized by using the humanizing framework. “Ashely has a learning difficulty “This is lack of capacity because Ashely can’t speak properly and do not have much of understanding but however he has the right to make decision and choices. Ashely was treated horribly in the hospital; the care professional wasn’t communicating with the parents or Ashely. The experience of a patient’s loved ones such as friends, family etc. Are also important because they play an important part in the patient own well- being.
The whole reason for assisted suicide is so that the patient can ultimately have control over their own life, but it is possible that they may be being influenced by others that they should end their life. There are several cases of elder abuse that happens, especially at older ages, these individuals are extremely influenced by their family. Their family can become very controlling and force their ideas of what is best for them on that individual, even if it goes against what they believe. They could be telling the doctors that it is what they want but it could really just be the influence of the family members. According to Sanders and Buchanan (2012), under the protocol it is ultimately the doctor’s responsibility to decide if this is really what the patient wants for themselves, but the
One of the most significant current discussions in legal and moral philosophy is whether a person who has no will to live can be allowed to die by the doctors, who know that the enormous cost of time, expense and professional effort spent on them is a waste. Similarly, in this essay, Living Will, by Danielle Ofri, the author describes her own dilemma as to whether she should be allowing patients who have no will to live to die or she should try to motivate them to live. Although it is true that, many of the patients may appear to be having no will to live at all, the author describes how deep inside they may actually be having a hope and willingness to continue to live. This paper will focus on the term ‘living will’, which is a term which can be interpreted in different ways. In fact, there are two meanings to the title of this essay ‘Living Will’, first of which means the will to live more based on hope and the second is the will written during the lifetime wanting not to live anymore due to lack of any motivation due to many diseases.
The concept of unconscious bias could have implications for Sanjay’s treatment; this is the idea that people hold judgements about others, without conscious awareness of it, which could influence the way professionals view and treat Sanjay. Sewell (2017) suggest that the relationship between the client and therapist is important for delivering the best outcomes from treatment, however, these prejudices could present barriers to a relationship. Stereotypes about Sanjay’s ethnicity may also affect the type of treatment he receives; Eleftheriadou (2010, cited in Sewell, 2017) suggest that service providers sometimes hold the stereotype that counselling is not appropriate for black people, demonstrating how stereotypes about ethnicity may impact on the type of treatment
Many public institutions distance themselves from religion to seem unbiased towards beliefs. Cynicism occurs because some people do not believe in the healing hospital paradigm and prefer the system that focuses completely on physical healing. Lastly, failed leadership can destroy a healing hospital because it requires a servant leader attitude. If the leadership cannot humble themselves and practice what they preach, the staff will never fully commit to the system. These problems pose a threat to startup and early operation, but if they can be overcome the quality of care will increase
A part of developing cultural competency is being aware of our own biases, stereotypes and prejudices. We do this by having the understanding that we perceive the world differently because of the way we were taught and being careful not to assume the practices of an individual based on their ethnicity. In assuming cultural habits of a patient, one may unintentionally neglect the individual preferences and/or offend a patient resulting in unwanted outcomes. Moreover, we should aim to eliminate our preconceived ideas about the world in the healthcare field and understand they are not truths but simply perceptions we developed through a culture of our own. It is best to be mindful of differences in cultures but also aware of the intra-ethnic variation
This paper will attempt to display the cultural differences in the expression and description of depression symptoms within the Asian American and European American cultures. It is theorized that there are distinct differences between these two cultures as their worldviews are decidedly different. In the Asian American culture the world is seen through a collectivist lens, meaning that they take into consideration the views and opinions of not only their family but their community as well. Mental illness in this particular worldview is not seen as something that is shameful to the individual but their family and community. Hence, the implications for having a mental illness in this culture are greater than they would
