The Department of Health website contains many resources to answer questions that parents may have on whether to vaccinate their children, including information about the benefits of vaccination, how one can get vaccinated, and access to webinars and lectures. By giving people in Washington state the opportunity to be informed, the government demonstrates that they are not blindly leading people or forcing them to take actions they are not familiar with. Hendrix points out that communication, especially with those that do not want to vaccinate, is extremely important in highlighting the goals of the immunization requirements.

"This quote means that the people who weren't vaccinated got the disease.
The parents should have known that Sarah does need care being that she has not seen or diagnosed by a doctor. The only way that she can be properly be helped is if she is properly diagnosed. The family could also learn about different skills about her condition, which could enable them to be better caretakers. I would help this family by allowing Sarah to stay at her home but recommend that she see a doctor immediately. I will also provide them with documentation that explains more information about her condition and effective ways of treatment.
While, parents or guardians are authorized, to decide for treatment for minor patients, however, medical decisions must be based on the child’s best interest, such treatment effectiveness, possibilities of additional suffering from side effects, and overall prognosis. Furthermore, healthcare professionals and related ethical issues can affect also decision making in childhood cancer. Accordingly, this paper aims to discuss number of key themes related to decision making in pediatric oncology; physician’s role in decision making in childhood cancer; parents’ participation in treatment decisions and the factors that might affect their decisions; parent’s view of participation of child in clinical trials. Following this, I will look at particular aspects with ethical dilemmas: refuse of treatment, do not resuscitate (DNR) in children, and end-of-life care for children. Finally I will offer own thoughts and hypothesis about
Every hospital has to follow the laws and respect patients’ privacy any rights. Even though the medical staff encourages the patient and the family to go along with the appropriate treatment in order to cure the illness, but it’s still their choice to accept or refuse it. This paper addresses that informed consent is different for every culture, and strategies on how a medical professional can balance cultural preferences with full disclosure. Furthermore, why adolescents shall be allowed to make their own life and death decisions and address the dilemmas on informed consent, also ethics versus legal issues.

Nursing interventions and rationales include: assess influence of cultural beliefs, norms, values and client’s ability to modify behavior; assess the effect of fatalism on a client’s ability to modify behavior; clarity culturally related health beliefs and practices; provide culturally targeted education and health care services (Ackley & Ladwig, 2014, pp. 413–414). Ideally nurse would possess certain level of knowledge about the patient culture or asked the coworkers to assist. On the other hand it would be impossible to posses knowledge about every culture and its customs. Nurse should explain details of procedures or necessary changes that would bring positive healthy results, withhold the judgement and attempt to understand the patient
In P5 of my work I am going to outline and discuss the strategies and procedures used in health and social care to reduce the risk of abuse.The aim of the independent safeguarding Authority (ISA) was established under the Safeguarding Groups Act 2006 to protect children and vulnerable adult to those who might abuse them. The strategy in order to achieve this is through mentoring people who seek access through their work, paid, unpaid and voluntary.

Reference can be defined as being information that is written by a pervious employer that tells the workplace what type of person the individual is and if their experience is valid and if they have the experience to work with vulnerable adult.

From the research, it is believed by the author, that since the licensing is done at the state level, this is where changes in America should be implemented. APNs need lobbyists to advocate for the changes needed. It appears that in the states where there APNs have restricted practices, it is due to lobbying by the state’s medical board. The legislators should be presented with the facts, APNs provide safe and cost effective care to the patients. Citizens should get involved and write letters to make the legislators aware of the problem.

Furthermore, the Children’s Defense Fund is an interest group that advocates the wellbeing of children and ensures that they will not be abused nor neglected (votesmart.org). The Iron Triangle served the purpose of having the voice of the interest groups heard for the formation of the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act along with the multiple amendments formulated since 1974. Congress then provides legitimacy to the Bureaucracy who ensures that the U.S Government departments that support and share information about the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Administration for Children and Families, carry out an organized and effective system to ensure that the job is getting done adequately. In return the Bureaucracy grants Congress policy choices and the interest groups with special favors in terms of facilitating the bureaucratic system in place at those government
Three options for the CMHCM respite services are not changing the policy at all, encourage more beneficiary family caregivers, and change the respite providers pay which requires additional training on trauma and mental illness. When deciding to make changes or to not make changes to the policy it is important to keep the consumers and their family in mind during the process. For the first option of not making changes to the current policy the agency will continue to work with families and their respite providers as well as continue to seek out more local respite potential service providers. While the consumers and their families are not under any risk, they are however not receiving the full potential and benefits of having respite services.

According to the national vaccine information center website the injury act was out into place to make sure that the children and there families will be financially be taken care or in the event that injury or even death occurred form vaccines to the child. I think another good thing about the injury act is that health care providers need to keep written records of the vaccines as well as give parents information about the pro 's and con 's of the vaccines. I think that it should be mandatory because I feel like if you don 't vaccinate your child you are not only putting you child at risk but someone else 's child at risk as well. According to the website www.vaccines.gov immunizations can protect future generations for instance smallpox no
