Cross-cultural methods and approaches should be taken to accommodate for the diverse patient population in our communities. I will introduce the culture clash by first describing the Hmong point of view on health and illness. Then, I will proceed my analysis by comparing it with the Western perspectives and practices on healing. Social stigma will also be emphasized as another negative factor
Excessive power of autonomy changes a beneficent doctor-patient relationship to a client-consumer type relationship. I contend that this form of doctor-patient relationship will perpetuate the provision of inadvisable, harmful therapies. Without a beneficent objective, advances in technology and care provision of modern ICU would become ineffective for society. Care would be provided merely on request and provided excessively where it is unlikely to produce a meaningful benefit. I will argue that while the term “meaningful benefit” is open to discussion, it must consist of a significant component of medical judgement.
When patient 's health data are shared or linked without the patients ' knowledge, autonomy is jeopardized. The patient may conceal information due to lack of confidence in the security of the system having their data. As a consequence, their treatment may be compromised. There is the risk of revelation of thousands of patients ' health data through mistakes or theft. Leaders, health personnel and policy makers should discuss the ethical implications of EHRs and formulate policies in this regard.
Healthcare providers rely on ethical codes to establish guidelines and standards for addressing issues that arise. Associations representing the professional organization are tasked with the duty of developing and tailoring a code of ethics to assist its members to understand expectations in their professional role. For example the American Health Information Management Association and the American Physical Therapist Association established a code of ethics for its members. Each association considers the relation of the health professional obligations and constructs a code of ethics to serve as guidance to the professional. When reviewing the code of ethics for AHIMA and APTA, one may definitely draw parallels.
It can also be very costly when trying to treating a communicable disease that could have been prevented with a vaccine. Immunization will prevent you and others from contracting a disease as well as dealing with all the expenses that come along with treating that disease. Everyone should make getting vaccinated a priority for their health and for others.
The aforementioned ring forms that are seen within red blood cells can vary significantly and can be easily misinterpreted as Plasmodium falciparum (i.e. a malaria parasite), although the absence of the hemozoin pigment should point to Babesia parasites. And indeed, there are cases described in the literature when the patient was erroneously diagnosed with malaria, which may result in misguided treatment and pose a serious risk to the
The importance of Epidemiology and how it relates to Nursing Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health related states or events including disease and the application of the study to the control of disease and other health problem. Various methods can be used to carry out epidemiological investigation; surveillance determinants. The important of epidemiology on the whole is to improve the health of population. This essay will focus on the importance of epidemiology and how it relates to nursing .There will be definition of health, disease and nursing. According the WHO health amendment 1948 health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not
Health Promotion and Health Prevention are important factors in health care and therefore health care policy, politics and management. They assist in (a) achieving a healthy that is sound and robust life and (b) cost reduction. However, critique has been raised against health promotion as an individual(-istic) matter as it has to do with personal behaviour and attitudes (excerise, diet, smoking), whereas social issues and choices of political factors (infrastructure, working conditions, access to primary care, spare time enough for exercise, access to information concerning promotion etc) may prevail as causes of illness, whilst these causes are socio-political. Similar points may be raised against health prevention mainly in the form of primary
The manufacturer vaccine inserts offer lists of known reactions – Many which are permanent, life-threatening or worse. In realism, vaccines should be labelled as hazardous products. If you are concerned about your safety, then look beyond what you perceive in the media, because you will surely not hear the truth. Read a book, or two, or three, and decide for yourself what you think. The choice is up to you; do you really want to get sick over vaccines.
Any deviation from this clearly defined outcome will hint on interfering issues in patient care. In a sense, while an NSI indicates a level of quality achieved in nursing practice, it also indirectly detects outlying factors or interfering issues associated with the
