The fist con of the public health model is that to focus on an individual’s health is more difficult to do, due to it also looks at the social issues that are happening that may be causing the individual to have their current issues (Woodside & McClam, 2015). The public health model emphasizes prevention more than treatment which is a great concept but if the client needs treatment than this can lead to them not understanding the steps to prevent the issue in the future which is another con of the public health model (Woodside & McClam, 2015). There are pros with the public health model and one of those pros it that the focus is on a larger population and not an individual so more people are getting the treatments that they need while preventing others from having the same issue (Woodside & McClam, 2015). A second pro of the public health model is that in today’s society health has a more positive meaning because people want to live a full life and be able to cope with circumstances in a positive manner (Woodside & McClam, 2015). The final of the three models is the human service model which I will discuss in the next section because it is also used to help clients with their daily
The world is a diverse population, with people coming from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. A person’s views, values, and traditions determine their daily needs and practices. So, healthcare providers face certain challenges and restrictions because a patient’s belief may inhibit professionals from providing the most effective care. Therefore, cultural competence is an important idea for healthcare providers to consider when understanding and respecting patients. Balcazar, Suarez-Balcazar, and Taylor-Ritzler (2009) noted in “Cultural competence:
Political leaders across the world ask whether the state itself should provide universal healthcare for their people with the assistance of their taxes, or should the health care market and it insurance be turned over to the private sector. The two arguments come face to face with the way that Sweden and the United States of America have their social welfare and health care provided. Sweden has the social health care that many left leaning political leaders tend to favor more sense it
However, despite the original purpose of lobbying, to intercede on behalf of the public and promote common interests, this practice has acquired a negative connotation. Lobbying can in fact undermine the goodness and legitimacy of government activity. In this regard, lobbyists have been recorded offering money to lawmakers in exchange for legislative decrees that favoured their own interest or that of their clients. In response to these scandals, governments around the world have tried to develop strong regulatory systems act to ensure transparency in
Chapter one: The History of The Public Opinion Introduction The public opinion is a set of attitudes and views of individuals concerned with particular controversial issues, including politics and government action. Its impact is not only limited to politics and elections, but also concerned with many other spheres, such as culture, literature, the arts, public relations and so on. The American public opinion has been a subject of inquiry since the rise of democratic states, in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries because governments started to be well known, and democracies were expected to present and be responsible for their people. Before dealing with the American public opinion, one should know the nature of the notion and its
Thomas Hobbes and John Locke are two theorists known for their views regarding the social contract. Both theorists study the origins of government and the level of authority given to the state over individuals, thoroughly constructing their arguments through the social contract. A philosophical approach was used in both Hobbes’s and Locke’s arguments, however supporting different authorities. Thomas Hobbes advocates for absolutism whilst John Locke advocates for a constitutional government. Through the close examination of the state of nature, the relationships between subject and sovereign and views regarding the social contract, one can observe a more sensible basis for constructing a successful political society.
Since nursing homes tend to provide care to a vulnerable population they can be taken advantage of, overlooked or mistreated by staff and with residents potentially underreporting these incidents due to fear of retaliation by staff identifies this as significant ethical issues among nursing homes. The use of restraints that restricts a resident, whether physical or chemical applies to the ethical considerations within a nursing home as it not only impacts the resident, it can affect staff members and other resident’s safety. There is always the conflict between providing the resident with a fair amount of decisions regarding their activities of daily living, special accommodations, and independence. However, there is also the reflective issue of whether these freedoms impact the safety and the ability to comply with the institution's policy and how they are handled to deliver ethically appropriate customer service to those

Efforts to contain the spread of infectious diseases by restricting individual choices through isolation and quarantine of infected individuals to safeguard the community’s welfare demands justification. Furthermore, in the situation of limited resources for promotion and prevention activities, putting resources into untested interventions may result in depriving resources from other more effective programs.

Every detail of modern American life still shows the impact of progressivism. It was a movement would go on to essentially change the nation, and change what Americans expected from their governments. The idea of progressivism was to better society, create laws, and make restrictions for those who were not being treated properly. There were certain areas of society that needed to be changed, and those were child labor, temperance, equal treatment, education, urbanization, and labor reform. The government then passed laws to regulate these aspects of life.
The Affordable Care Act or “Obamacare” has constituted one of the most important topics since its implementation in 2010. Since 2010, the fate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been uncertain. The ACA was a historic achievement for the Obama administration and Congressional Democrats. But it passed Congress without a single Republican vote, and the GOP subsequently mounted legal and legislative challenges to Obamacare, vowing to repeal and replace it. (Oberlander, 2012, p.2165).
Healthcare is highly regulated at the federal and state levels. Laws are written to address different principles. These laws reflect societal expectations and are designed to guide us. As advanced practice nurses, we have a responsibility to fully understand the law and play our part in shaping health care policies that affect our patients and practice.
Before the Affordable Care Act was put into work, over 45 million Americans were uninsured. The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, was then made to help those who were uninsured. It allowed people with financial struggles with the same opportunity as everyone else to have a healthcare plan. Even though the law was passed in 2010, it took a full year of back and forth to get it passed in the Senate. Obamacare may help you get coverage, but charge you an annual fee if you don’t have one.
Bernie Sanders once said “A nation will not survive morally or economically when so few have so much, while so many have so little”. In our society, many people experience inequalities, including racial inequality, gender inequality, and economic inequality. These social inequalities create institutionalized social barricades that most times, cannot be solved without some sort of policy that advocates equity. Inequality means that people have little or unequal access to resources such as education, housing, health care, politics, and many more. It also means that people are treated unequally by society.
