Holistic approach and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is the hallmark of Osteopathic Medicine. While this unique approach to medicine might bring additional benefits to patients as compare to traditional medicine, people are still unaware of the concepts lie within the profession as well as what make them different from their allopathic colleagues. Hence, social stigma still exists toward this medical proffesion simply due to the initial of their medical diploma. Being an M.D or D.O carry the same mission and vision in providing care for the sick while helping to alleviate patients’ pain and suffering.

This makes realize that there was dehumanized care, such as the word Dislocation means when a person does not know where there where about is, for example even though the nurses greeted Ashely when he arrived but they didn’t inform him where he was and what happens to him. Patients are normally, confused when they are in an unfamiliar situation and their life has been changed.

An essential part of modern society relied on trust, especially the trust of doctors and scientists. People had the right to make an informed decision about their bodies and body parts. People had a right to their body parts, both attached and cell samples collected by doctors. The actions that the medical professions made will continue to affect future generations in both positive and negative ways. In the contemporary biographical novel, the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot used logical opinions to argue about the importance of consent to reveal the lack of morality from those in the medical field which continues to persist today.
Doctor Douglas, understood that the treatment that both Brodus and Nurse Evers envisioned for their patients was impractical, given funding and resources. Douglas mentions, “A study could be created and carried out...And it would be the most important study of its kind ever conducted” (40), a statement that is important given that it demonstrates Douglas’s focus on the greater good. Douglas in describing the study reveals he has given less importance to the patients in the study, suggesting that their sacrifice will assist the general population. This in addition to acknowledging the idea that the Tuskegee Study would allow for resources to continue treatment for the patients, is intended to coax Brodus and Nurse Evers in participating in the study.

This is a real thing that is happening in the United States, and we can’t keep ignoring it. Effective communication relies on both individuals being good listeners and good communicators, it is a two-way street that many people fail to realize is essential to follow to get the best medical care. Both doctors and patients need to realize their roles in the interaction and do whatever possible to make sure communication is effective and comprehensible, whether it be dulling the terminology down to a scale that people with no medical literacy can understand, or the patient asking more questions or better explanations from their doctor; the medical community and regular citizens need to come together and create solutions on how we can decrease these tremendously high number of deaths per year. It has been proven that better communication and implementing programs which personalize medical discharge documents as well as having documents scanned and re-written in terms that people without medical literacy can understand bring readmission rates in hospitals down 30%. Decreasing readmission rates are a factor in this that is crucial to the health of patients, which leads to less people having complications that lead to
Care provided this way would support healing, enhance patient experience and lead to faster discharge. Nursing from my experience, are culturally sensitive and adjusted accordingly to a variety of requests from patients and accommodated most of them. Nursing staff today works with a diverse population and it is important to stay professional and culturally sensitive. Nurses should assess their own knowledge, feelings and values when providing care for patients from different backgrounds. It also important to know about different cultures and increase personal cultural awareness (Leishman, 2004).
