And common values, finding common values between different religions. And as you study the other religions, you must learn more about your own and believe more in your own. This Interfaith Youth Corps is a very good project.” (96). This is the message and the invitation that Patel extends to us as we read his book, to live a life of religious pluralism. The Dalai Lama reemphasizes the point made by Brother Wayne that learning about other religions allows for the development of your personal beliefs.
Health care workers are called upon to improve and maintain the health of our patients. A society where the civil rights of patients are dependent on the religious beliefs of others is not one I would want to live in. Basic rights and equality should never yield to discrimination, especially when people’s lives depend on the services of health care professionals. Even though the refusal to treat patients is legally protected by the RFRA, we should try to minimize discrimination, prevent our self-interests from providing exceptional care, and if not possible then there should be alternative ways to offer our patients the services they need. In the end, when we chose to pursue a profession in health care, we chose to benefit all of
Similar, to a southern conservative who learns how to behave in society, based on what they have considered socially accepted that was derived from religion. Conservatives maintain proper ethics from the lessons of the Holy Bible that teaches them right from wrong. This is the sociological idea that religion establishes moral proscriptions for behaviors. In the article “Dilemmas of Conservatism” Muller states, “Conservatives often appeal to traditions… emotional hold of such traditions, adding emotional weight to moral prescriptions” (56). Muller is describing the importance of religion to a conservative’s role in life.
I will be straight forward with the client in regards to understanding and know their current spiritual beliefs. In a counseling session with a client that is confronting their issue of depression or anxiety, probing them to elaborate on their answers may result in an undesirable session. Setting boundaries and expectations would be established for the benefits of the counselor and the counselee. Siang-Yang (2007) article would serve as a manual that would outline the phases and the requirements that will be needed to graduate to the next level. The patient would have to be actively engaged during our counseling sessions; I need to ensure the client that during our counseling sessions will be a no judgment zone.
Some say it’s just a poem, others say it’s about the stages in life, and the other few people find it in a more biblical way. Religion was important to Dickinson. She wanted to make sure she could include it into her poems. Dickinson’s religion is something that made her who she was. Poems should reflect on things such as emotions, subjects that are important, and personal experiences.
For a potential research subject who is incapable of giving informed consent, the physician must seek informed consent from the legally authorised representative. These individuals must not be included in a research study that has no likelihood of benefit for them unless it is intended to promote the health of the group represented by the potential subject, the research cannot instead be performed with persons capable of providing informed consent, and the research entails only minimal risk and minimal burden. American Nurses Association (2011) Provision 3.3 : Protection of participants in research Each individual has the right to choose whether or not to participate in research. Patient or legally authorized surrogate receive sufficient information that is in material to an informed decision, to comprehend that information, and to know how to discontinue participation in research without penalty. Necessary information to achieve an adequately informed consent (nature of participation, potential harms and benefits, available alternatives to taking part in the research, how the data will be protected) Research should be conducted and directed only by qualified person.
Ethics in Medical Coding is the same ethics that cover everything else. Confidentiality first and for most. It is a coder’s responsibility to keep what they say and do to themselves. This not only covers ethics but also HIPAA regulations. You cannot let your partialities to patients or to insurance companies affect the way you do your job, how you code or how you bill.
The counselor needs to make sure to respect clients at all times. For that reason, the counselor should refer to the code of ethics for additional support. The counselor should have ethical and legal considerations when using research in counseling it is for the protection of the client. It is important to know what the population the counselor will be working to see if the research will be effective if there will be any barriers for the client. The responsibility of the counselor is to collect the proper pre and post-test of the client to show a difference when they first started therapy when they finished.
In adhering to the principles of veracity, I as a nurse must carefully choose how I present the truth in the least hurtful way. At the same time, I must be careful to make sure I act in the name of beneficence, and provide care with the goal of helping my patient and avoid doing harm. (Ramont, Niedringhaus & Towle, 2012) Conflict is bound to happen in the health care setting. Values, beliefs and expectations have to mix with those of others, and consideration must be given to culture and religion. I expect to put in hard work keeping up to date and being self aware so that I can best advocate for my patient without
Chaplains could teach students spiritual care from their perspective, therefore assisting students to broader views of spiritual care when practising in the clinical area and to recognise when they need to refer spiritual care to them. In contrast in Van Leeuwen (2008) the students’ vision of holistic nursing care influenced their scoring on the subscale ‘referral to professionals’. This outcome suggested that students think spiritual care must first be addressed by pastors, hospital chaplains and other disciplines, and when nurses assess a patient’s spiritual problem or needs, they should refer the patient to an expert and not provide the care themselves. This outcome could also confirm the frequent ambiguity detected in nurses’ sense of responsibility for spiritual care (McSherry 2007, Van Leeuwen et al. 2006), which has led to a lack of clarity about the position of the subject of spirituality within nursing.
