Since Native Americans have a high rate of poverty they suffer more when it comes to health problems. It was stated that if healthcare providers were to take the time to learn about Native American culture, while also spending time within their communities. Native Americans would be more open to letting healthcare providers help take care of them when it is needed. In the end it is up to the healthcare provided to gain their trust so that we would be able to help them
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 better climate to work in whatever the culture.
Dr. Schaller, a key player mentioned in this case, is closest to the deontological perspective. Not all of his views or actions align with this perspective, but his earlier views come the closest. “Right from the start, Schaller was uncomfortable about AHCCCS funding of transplants for several reasons. For one, he questioned whether a program with tight resources should be spending its money on high dollar, high risk procedures. After all, AHCCCS was intended as a general health program for the genuinely poor…[Schaller stated that the] AHCCS should provide ‘basic health care to poor people, not just cater to people who have real expensive health problems.” (Varley 1988, 318-319).
Adewale Troutman stated that he advocates “individual responsibility, but always within the context of social determinants” linking the two thoughts together. Fundamentally, he is saying that it is up to one to make their health within the means they have. There are aspects of life that people have no control over or don’t have the resources to fix, but there are still ways they can improve their health. Social determinants are conditions that people grow, work, live, age and the factors that shape their daily lives. If individual responsibility is solely focused upon then the quality of public health as a whole cannot be improved upon.
Employers should not have access to health records of their employees that is not work related, and some may worry that their medical information will be shared. Another issue that may arise, is the cost of these screenings, and how long it will take to see claims go down. Employers would need to pay for these screenings, and they may not see the benefit for quite some time. The goal of this essay is to persuade people to become educated about their health, and to take action to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Carolyn, Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Medical fraud and abuse are the serious problems for health care system, which need to be prevented from reducing the health care cost and providing quality of services to the people who need care. It is most important to educate health care worker and new employees about these issues so that they will be aware providing patient 's personal information to others. Also, potential providers need to be surveyed to ensure that they are reasonable providers or
That is why safety for the residents and their well-being should be among the top priorities for a personal support worker. Whether the administrator 's credibility would be up for debate is up to Extendicare, but the wellness of the residents, including Luba, should be handled accordingly with standards which nursing homes hold themselves up to. This only instills uncertainty among the families with relatives in nursing homes, and presents a bad lighting for personal support workers. The unfortunate truth is that this is one of many serious cases involving nursing homes and their neglect for their residents, and it should stand as an example for personal support workers to

The world seems to turn a blind eye to global health. Whether they use the excuse, as said in the book, “resources are limited.” Or countries just simply do not want to go out of their way to provide for these countries. That is why Paul Farmer and his colleagues set out to help these people who are suffering from bad diseases, as well as government systems that will not do anything to help these people in need. The book “Mountains Beyond Mountains” by Tracy Kidder is the chronicling of anthropologist, professor, and doctor Paul Farmer. It is an excellent story of sacrifice and hardship of Farmer and the effort and time he puts into taking care of the less fortunate in different countries.
The author also highlighted that addressing issues concerning unequal availability to healthcare is in imperative in order to reducing health disparities (McHenry, 2012). I think as APNs one thing we can do is make patient aware of what their insurance will cover and what types of services they are eligible for. For many patient, suggested interventions and treatments may be disregarded due to a lack of financial means. In addition to this many people have simply decided not to take advantage of health insurance coverage that is available to
