Allowing robotics to gain new technology might result in the threat to human existence. Also, as DNA technology develops, there will be more opportunities to receive new treatments, but it will lead to the concern that personal DNA data will be exposed. The reason why these ethical problems occur is that regulations and laws cannot keep up with the technology since it takes some time to enact them. Despite the bright side of emerging technology, there are always ethical problems, and still engage a lot of
I believe that even if the hospital leadership are able to understand the climate and culture theory, it would be very difficult for them to translate to nurses, physicians and other professionals who already have a professional and organizational culture they are used to. Consequently, the implementation of creating or improving the climate or culture separately to aid stemming the crisis would be difficult. Although, I believe if it is introduced as trying to create a better organizational climate for the hospital or clinic in general with special focus on opioid addicted patients and organizational culture is treated as a component of the climate it may be easier to deploy and get good response. This is because as discussed/suggested in many of our readings people tend to hold on to culture so resisting change. But I believe people generally want a
Training and supervision In some cases, it is hard for doctors to decide if my behavior is corruption due to cultural difference, that is, a certain behavior may not be considered as corruption in this culture while in other it is (Heeks, 1999). Hence, without training and supervision, staff members may behave according to their own beliefs, which may lead to rise in corruption. Thus, training and supervision is needed. By this measure, standardization can be made. In new staff orientation, hospitals can provide training on how to deal with different situations of corruption, and how to turn down those who offer them bribe and rebates.
Counselling and psychotherapy are essentially used to describe the same process of overcoming personal difficulties and work towards a positive change in one’s life. The early definition of counselling was more to do with legal advice side of things, such as offering legal advice or to seek legal counsel, but over the centuries that meaning evolved toward the more therapy based counselling. The next few paragraphs will include some of the historic origins of both counselling and psychotherapy and the potential similarities and differences between them, as most of the time there’s a potential confusion around these terms; some of the parallel concepts, such as pastoral support and the modern aspect of counselling and psychotherapy, from the psychodynamic approach to CBT and humanistic approach, all evolved to somehow make therapy more efficient. The history of the study of counselling begins with the ancients Greek physician Hippocrates. Hippocrates believed that mental illness was the result of brain damage or an imbalanced of body fluids called humors.
However, other opinions argue that experienced clinicians leverage a range of strategies, including some that are more intuitive. Although founded on assimilated and amassed clinical practice wisdom, including an intuitive approach is difficult to locate within prudent, traditional models (Jasper, Mooney, & Rosser, 2013). Nursing judgment is defined as deciding on which data to collected, constructing an interpretation of the data, arriving at a diagnosis, and identifying the right actions to take which involves problem solving, decision making, and critical thinking. Since this is an informatics project, data was a driving force throughout the project. Taking the data identified, looking at patterns and gaps, developing the rationale for why the patterns and gaps exist and how to address each of them, followed up by executing solutions by weighing past experiences, current literature and evidenced based practice, and nursing standards of practice supported the achievements of this group.
1. Ethics – A Contemporary PR Issue Public relations (PR) practitioners are facing several ethical challenges in their work, which mostly arise from PR-practicing (non-profit) organisations trying to take influence on public opinion and attitudes of competition-relevant parties. In return, these groups distinguish themselves by consciously or unconsciously influencing these organisations. This way they can either be potential beneficiaries or risk carriers for them (Post et al., 2002). For PR practitioners, this has several consequences at various stages in the network of relationships.
The clinicians in charge must fully explain the pros and cons of becoming involved in a study. Participants must be warned of all the potential problems that can arise during the study such as additional costs, extra procedures, and or extra treatments needed. Having informed consent sounds nice and sweet but that was not always the case; for a long time physicians had a problem with giving consent because they felt that it only complicated the matter of the study by adding more bias views to the study slowing down the research progress. Some physicians feel that it is their job to use good judgement to recommend treatments that are best for their patients; that being said, physicians would not recommend doing a clinical trial if it was not good for them. On the other hand patients feel that the people involved in the study should be able to choose what goes on in their lives especially when they are being used as research “guinea pigs”.
Disadvantages Even though the advantages outweigh the disadvantages of informed consent, it is still vital to talk about the shortcomings involved. It is important for health care professionals to understand the disadvantages of informed consent just as much as the advantages so that they can prevent these drawbacks, if possible. The disadvantages I will be discussing in this section is the act of coercion and undue influence, emergency situations and special circumstances where informed consent does not apply, and therapeutic privilege. When informing patients about their care options, the health care provider may be convinced that one way is the best and may inadvertently pressure a patient to make a different decision than they originally
1. I think that consulting with other professional staff members is the most important because that is kind of self-explanatory with in the name, Correctional counselor. It talks about developing treatment plans that require special emphasis and change to increase the possibility of reaching a desired level of adjustment and that is the biggest thing in correctional counseling, helping the patient change for the better. I also think that the ability to prepare comprehensive evaluations is the most important competencies needed because you might know all their needs to know about correctional counseling but if you can’t find a good way to prepare the evaluation then why does any of the practice, and knowledge matter. 2.
Additionally, the system will not be able to provide a correct diagnose result or prescribe drug for usage. It is because the primary design of the system are to facilitate appointment booking between the patient and the health personnel. Thus, as a compensation to the system, the presence of additional modules such as Announcement, Medical case record and block/unblock schedule is hope to be able to enhance the usability and functionality of the system and encourage a flexible management of patients appointment (Idowu et all.
