The text states,” But even Dr. Exner, the developer of the comprehensive system, agreed that the test "can be abused unwittingly by the ill-trained person," and he said he was uncomfortable with the use of the test in "adversarial" settings, like custody disputes.” The accuracy of these tests can definitely vary with the experience and training of the doctor who is distributing it, so only a few professionals have mastered being able to score the test properly. This clearly shows that the validity of these tests is questionable at best. Supporters of the Rorschach test say that the test is valid because it can delve into the mind of patient without requiring the patient to give up information they are not comfortable exposing. While this argument has some merit, the patient still has the ability to cheat the test by simply responding with the answers that make them look more mentally stable. It is clearly seen that the Rorschach test should not be used to diagnose mental illnesses.
The prosecution failed miserably. Unfortunately in the Casey Anthony’s case there was a lot that could have been different or done better. The biggest problem that the prosecutors faced was lack of evidence especially lack of evidence in the cause of death of Caylee. Don’t get me wrong, the prosecution had evidence but all the evidence they had, was circumstantial. The prosecution for the Zimmerman case had the same problem with the evidence that they had.
Because of this problem, reality seems to be distorted and the accuracy of our brains is in question. The Mandela Effect makes it impossible for us to trust our societal brain. The countless examples of the Mandela Effect supply evidence to prove our brains collectively make too many mistakes to be trustworthy. There is a plethora of cases of this strange event
Human cloning tends to take place in unreliable laboratories, with scientists who have limited knowledge on what to do if a step they take is incorrect because they are usually just experimenting in unknown territory. (is this true?? Lots of laws regarding cloning especially in the UK) This leads to major ethical difficulties as scientists are playing with human life. Furthermore, if a clone is made and there is even the slightest mishap, whereby the clone could be inclined to suffer if given the chance to grow, some would strongly oppose due to the fact that human life is so complex and needs a perfect designer, not a person in a laboratory wearing a white coat and plastic goggles. Human life should take place naturally, not as an experiment in a lab as it diminishes the value of
People will not believe you, even if you speak the truth, if you always lie. Trying to rebuild that trust will take a long time. In conclusion, everyone lies in one way or another and not all lies are intentionally told to cause harm. In Ericsson’s The Way We Lie, she provides the different examples of lying and why we do it. We lie for many reasons and it’s been said that the truth can hurt sometimes.
INTRODUCTION For years medical malpractice has receiver much global attention both negatively and positively. There appears to be a tendency of allegations of medical malpractice that go unreported with the patients only communicating this kind of information in other media other than the body that does regulation of medical practitioners or the courts. In real meaning there are several unspoken possible cases of medical malpractice which have remained unaddressed generally since the victims either lack confidence in the professional regulatory bodies or are frightened of the processes and complications coupled with the court process. This is in relation to bearing in mind that instituting such petitions against medical practitioners or the
Abstract This report discusses the problem “withholding the truth from dying patients”, which have to be considered by so many factors of dying patients. Telling the truth might cause a terrible impact on patients (Clarence H. Braddock, 2008), and withholding the truth is behavior of disrespect (Ama Kyerewaa Edwin, 2008). Hence this report is considered about both sides of doctors and patients. Introduction The doctors in the hospital are usually the first group of people who know the patients’ conditions, and they will face the options of telling truth to patients or withholding the truth from them. If the patient is dying, what will the option be?
This kind of manic desire is what lead to his failure. Hartnett states,”…desiring subjects apprehend things or persons not on their own terms, but rather, as the space for the projection of self-fulfilling fantasy” (par 7). This means that during Aylmer’s experimentation, it became less about his wife, and more about projecting his scientific success onto something, or someone, else. Something that could be seen and tangible, as many people knew about Georgiana’s birthmark. If she were to be seen without it, people would ask why, and he would have his chance to gloat and claim intellectual superiority.
This has caused a rise of focus on epidemiology and avoidance of medication error in hospitals globally prompting diverse studies Nonetheless, this addition has not given accurate or consistent discovery with respect to errors involved in administering medication. Quite the contrary, there happens to be a a whole lot of terminologies involved in explaining the clinical dimensions of errors in medication and segregated consequences (e.g. error, failure, near miss, rule violation, deviation, preventable ADE and potential ADE). Furthermore, it has been advised that this variance has aided in the substantial inconsistency in the recorded happenings of errors in medication. Hence, in comparison to other epidemiological areas in health care, no individual explanation is presently being used to figure out medication despite the attempts to create a global definition have been made (e.g.
Many individuals find the process to be overly emotionally taxing and frightening, especially considering the confusing implications of the results. Surbone’s article “Social and Ethical Implications of BRCA Testing”, reflects, ““Scientists, physicians and bioethicists have consistently cared about the medical and psychosocial well-being of mutation carriers, and have cautioned the public about the limited predictive power of genetic testing, especially outside high-risk families, due to the relatively low gene penetrance, the possibility of new mutations with different significance that are still to be identified, and the role of environmental factors in cancerogenesis and tumor progression.” Essentially, the results of BRCA testing are not death sentences or free-cards. An individual with a positive result may not ever develop cancer and an individual with a negative result could— the results reflect likelihood and risk, not the certainty of a diagnosis. Despite the emotional taxes, many women decide to participate in testing. Jessica Boddy emphasizes the importance of gene testing and early screenings as they could result in early discovery and lead to better results and less treatment, she states, “The test results could help guide treatment, as well as future efforts to prevent more cancer.” In addition, Boddy encourages gene testing and awareness of the potential inheritance of harmful mutations.
