Today, the medical world recognizes two tips of medicine, the conventional medicine known as Western and the Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). Although, they are by logic completely opposites in practice the have some similarities. The first one, is accepted in most of the advance countries. Though, the second one is having a lot of attention not just from de common people but from the biomedical system as part of their usual treatments. That is why the differences and similarities between Chiropractic as part of the CAM world and the Biomedical Model are getting smaller and closer together.
a. According to Yoder-Wise (2015) complexity, formalization and centralization are characters that classifies a organization.(p. 141) All of these characteristics apply to Health care organization, but to what degree does a healthcare organization use each of these characteristics? In today 's Health Delivery organization I see a vision or movement toward shared governance. With this being said Health organization are more focused on decreasing hierarchies or complexity and using decentralization; Magnet Recognition Program is an example.
In medical practice, it is often emphasized that physicians must practice cultural competence in an attempt to achieve better diagnosis, intervention and treatment via approaching the patient in a holistic manner. Regrettably, the definition of cultural competence and let alone culture is often mistakenly interpreted, nor is it unified. Borrowing from Greon’s ideas, Wilson argues that “differing understandings of cultural competence present challenges in terms of accurately and reliably capturing its meaning, making its measurement problematic” (Greon as cited in Wilson, 208, p.14). This essay will tease out the subtleties in efforts to elucidate any misunderstandings around term ‘culture’ from an anthropological perspective, whilst exploring its relevance to medical practice.
In this report I will discuss both the Social and Medical Models, define their pros and cons and give a short reflection on my own opinion of the two models in everyday use today. Both the medical and the social models of disability describe how they see disability and how they feel disabilities and those suffering should be treated. Both models have very different views on the causes of, how disabilities should be taken care of and by whom and both have their strengths and weaknesses when it comes to caring for those with disabilities. Medical Model As the name suggests The Medical Model of disability mainly looks at the many varying causes of disabilities and searches for treatments within a structured, procedural and, some would say, very clinical manner. The Medical Model finds issues though rigorous testing done by specialists and relies on a definite diagnosis of a patient who can then be treated with medical and rehab.
In the text “A Raisin in the Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry, the author uses the writing strategy of conflict to develop the central idea of how oneself can become selfish when trying to achieve the American dream. The text shows that the central idea is selfishness because circumstances are presented where various characters fail to take into consideration others while seeking their dreams. For example, Walters says, “ Who the hell told you you had to be a doctor? If you so crazy ’bout messing round with sick people, then go be a nurse like other women-or just get married and be quiet…. ’’.
Bartoletti did a good job describing how the time period also played a part in how Mary was treated after it was discovered that she was a typhoid carrier. Yellow journalism influenced the mistreatment of Mary and gave her the name “Typhoid Mary”, basically ruining her credibility and reputation. At times, there was a lack of information or some things were vaguely described involving Mary. For example, there was very little information on her early life and how she contracted the typhoid disease. Overall, Terrible Typhoid Mary was a well written, well researched biography and I found it quite informative and interesting.
Likewise, in The Yellow Wallpaper the narrator says “You see he does not believe I am sick!” (Gilman, 93), which we can assume means she herself believes she is sick. Both of the narrators have ongoing conflict with their inner selves. The conflict relates to the theme of obsession because the inner battle the characters have with themselves, leads them to the obsession with the wallpaper and the eye, it drives them
This contrast immediately gives the reader an insight into the torment that guilt and regret can cause. There is a clear definition between Lady Macbeth before and after the murder of King Duncan. This character change emphasizes greatly the theme of the impacts upon a person due to the unnatural acts they have performed. In Lady Macbeth’s case the impact was guilt and regret both of which tormented her to point of serious mental illness, insomnia and ultimately a self induced demise. The author 's intention in bringing a once strong and evil character to the mercy of their own morality is to educate readers upon the impacts that guilt could have upon their own life if they were to perform the unnatural just as Lady Macbeth did.
It ignored a ‘mind-body connection’. Health however, is not simply limited to biology. “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not simply the absence of disease or infirmity” as defined by the World Health Organisation. The biopsychosocial model is an absolute necessity for clinical practice - it allows physicians to treat people who have diseases and not just the diseases people have. This will give us the ability to understand people beyond their biological functioning and to view human health in its fullest context.
The artist declares that “the subjects of those prints are calculated to reform some reigning vices peculiar to the lower class of people” (Bindman, 1981, p.178). The apocalyptic scene reminds of the Final Judgement or a Hell on Earth, where all the sinners and the gin addicted are portrayed together. Above houses collapsing, hanged people, corpses and brutalization, the statue of George II stands still but disregarded. The woman in the foreground does not notice that her son falls out of her arms, contravening the classic figure of the mother, who should protect and care about her own child. This allegorical image draws inspiration from a fact that really happened: a child’s death caused by his drunk mother.
Advanced Concept 1 – World Wide Poverty During the interview, Dr. Paul Farmer commented about healthcare infrastructure in the United States and other under-developed countries. He also emphasized about the importance of community-based healthcare when used with institutionalized healthcare. Dr. Farmer served for the United Nations as an envoy, and helped Rwanda and Haiti to build its healthcare infrastructure. He also helped many other countries such as Peru, Mexico and Russia using his expertise. Though Dr. Farmer mentioned many interesting topics, I would like to first discuss about how important it is for the community-based healthcare services to work together with an institutionalized health care services.
The lecture, led by Dr. Christian Dimaano, discussed a variety of health disparities and then went into an in depth look at Henrietta Lacks, and the use of her cells in scientific research. He described health disparities as the differences of health problems between races, lifestyles, and mental processes. This was a very interesting topic for me, as a nursing major, I hadn’t really thought about health disparities before, so it was interesting to think about all of the potentially higher health risks that can occur simply because a patients race, or mental state. He also discussed the social determinants of heath and how things like your physical environment, economic stability, social community, and education can all influence your health. Dr. Dimaano also talked about how social determinants of health are health problems that you had no choice in, they are developed by factors such as sex, age, genes, medical care, and individual behaviors such as work and home life.
However, scientific researchers have found out a mutual respect between poverty and medical treatment. It has been realized that poverty might influence the depth of medical treatment a patient receives. The health conditions that lead to a person needing medical assistance could also be influenced by poverty according to researchers (Lund, et al. 1505). In this essay, the examination intends to examine whether the relationship between poverty and medical treatment makes sense.
After reading Dr. Galanti 's articles about culturally competent healthcare please answer the following questions: What did you gain from reading Dr. Galanti 's article? Dr. Galanti provides insight into the relationship between cultural diversity and heath care providers. Dr. Galanti’s briefly states the difference between “stereotype and generalization”. The author recognizes that generalization may be a key factor used by workers in the health care community to bring awareness and a better understanding of cultural differences among patients. The article explains that although cultures differ in values, traditions, and beliefs, there are questions (the 4’C’s of culture) that may open up the line of communication, between provider and
The selected persons could be chosen based on different reasons. Moreover, one reason would be because, everyone job description is specify to his or her skill (study) of health care or medicine. According to the ICN code of ethics for nurses (2012), “Nurses have four fundamental responsibilities: to promote health, to prevent illness, to restore health and to alleviate suffering. The need for nursing is universal” (p. 1). I would not consider including a member of the community to be on the hospital team.
