Even though there is little chance that it can 't be ended, we the people can help the homeless with their dire needs and many wants. More than a quarter of our population is homeless, and it should be in our best interest to help prevent homelessness so that this country can have a population that is happy and that is joyous to be alive. Homelessness is the condition of people without
Differing from both the Jewish and AI religions, if I was posed this ethical question, I would say every time that patient confidentiality should be broken. If the patient or another person is in danger, that person has a right to know. Yes, the patient also has a right to confidentiality but when it comes to others being harmed, their rights are overshadowed by the common good. In summary, the clinician-patient confidentiality relationship is an important relationship in order for patient’s to receive the optimal care; however, there are circumstances that necessitate the need for that bond to be broken for the greater common good. Whether the patient redirects their bad behaviors into good or take the care into their own hands and increase the health of the community, it is necessary to break the confidentiality in order to save a person in
There are various methods to adjust health care services into becoming more approachable for low literacy patients. We shall let our society be aware of the problem and accommodate to the needs of low literacy people in our health care facilities. While communicating we must talk with sensitivity, allow the patients to speak out their opinions, respect their values, goals, and beliefs, and act with acceptance. Often times, while connecting with our patients can have the ability to heal them, but others times it can hurt the patient. We must not make any assumptions about the patients, we overestimate people’s reading levels because we are not in their position and we do not think about how something so “easy” to us can be such a challenge for others.
I, like some of the companies referred to in the paper always lumped both together. It is many times useful to break things down clearly into congruent units so it is more feasible to understand the issue and proffer relevant workable solutions. Meanwhile, as mentioned in the paper, such hairsplitting difference is not a usually a concern for an organization looking to make a change or improvement. While I think this understanding would be good to help in hospitals or clinics to deal with the opioid crisis. 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.
To the masses, the education required to become a physician often grants such people an otherworldly status as the majority have little education or specialize in an unrelated field. When this consideration is combined (passive voice) with the stigmatization of mental illness, it is obvious the stakes of accurate diagnoses are high. As language is built (passive voice) on categorization and generalization the question is not, should they be used (passive voice) in healthcare but how? (Charon 2004:17) To illustrate stereotyping in mental health diagnosis examples will be pulled (passive voice) from an experiment in which sane participants gained entry as patients to psychiatric hospitals and Monte Bute’s experience of being wrongly diagnosed
Personal interviews with the homeless reveal the struggles of living alone. The cause of homelessness isn’t laziness; being homeless requires a lot of stress into thinking about how to survive each day. Most homeless people are not criminals and many of those who are technically criminals have committed property crimes in order to live. In addition, the top reasons of homelessness are lack of affordable housing, lack of a living wage, and medical bankruptcy, but none of these reasons are related to choice. These misconceptions and stereotypes are dangerous to society since they seriously interfere with attempts to help those that are in need and
Also, it's important to take into account the lack of mental health services available. Many people suffering from mental illnesses don't seek treatment. If people were more aware of the signs and symptoms, it would be easier to encourage professional help. In order for America to become less violent mental health needs to become a priority. Unfortunately, guns are not going to disappear but it is possible that gun violence could start to disappear if accessibility to mental treatment increases in the United States.
Tailoring a therapeutic intervention to specific cultural needs of a patient is a critical part of patient centered care. For example if there is a therapy option that is ideal for the patient based of clinical evidence, but the patients refuse due to cultural issues, then it is not the best option for the patient (Engebretson, Mahoney, & Carlson, 2008; Romana, 2006; Purnell, 2008). This is a difficult concept for many health care providers to accept. Numerous health care providers believe that if a treatment plan has the greatest evidence based support there is no question the patient should begin that course of treatment, and at times they may disregard the patients’ opinion. Many will attempt to change the patient’s ideals to fit what the physician has determined as being the optimal health plan.
Factors such as offenders not accessing services, illiteracy, inability to get employment, lack of support networks and social support. These challenges greatly increase the risk of re-offending. While they are still in custody the government can assist by preparing the prisoners for integration in the community. They can work with different services both statutory and private in order to provide a smooth transition by arranging for social support and services for offenders to be able to survive outside. There is no reason for not seeking to reduce the rates of re-offending, to turn people’s lives around and achieve improved and increase rehabilitation
Dimock center is a nonprofit and government founded organization, which means the staffs are very little compensated for the relentless work they do. This survey helped me have a better understanding of inpatient and outpatient intensive rehab treatment. This organization believe in giving this special population many chances to rehabilitate and transform their lives for better outcomes. After treatment, patients are still followed by their designated case worker. Moreover, caseworker help recovered addicts go back to school, find housing, resolve their troubles with the law and find jobs.
