Charlie Gordon's doctors did not act ethically when they performed the surgery to make him smarter. Although these controversial statements with the doctor's unethical treatment of the patients in Flowers for Algernon, I believe that the doctors did the right thing with the patient and acted in the well-being of the patient. Charlie Gordon's doctors acted ethically when they performed the surgery to make him smarter. In real life doctor's have to make these same decisions today. They should always make the ethical decision of caring for their patient and being their friend just like Dr. Strauss and Dr.
Kinnian supports the theme because she was one of the only people Charlie looked up to. Although she was a role model to Charlie and she was probably like a parent or family member to, I believe that she should have looked into the operation and since she knew Charlie, and knew how to explain stuff, like the effects of the surgery she should have explained this to Charlie before he had the operation. Mrs. Kinnian at least tried to support him and make him understand, but he was blindsided by the fact that he might become smart, “But it is very hard to be smart. They said you know it will probably be temporary. I said, yes.
Some of these questions can be as simple as asking if the patient is allergic to anything. Charlie's doctors did not ask any of these questions, and it resulted in a negative life for Charlie afterwards. Although it was unexpected, he was fired from his job because of his intelligence. His doctors did not take this into consideration, therefore neither of them acted ethically in this situation. One might argue that Dr. Neymar and Dr. Straus did make ethical decisions in their experimental surgery.
She ends up buying and taking pills that will end her suffering before she’s in too much pain. She wants to go out as a strong person with dignity, not as someone suffering in a hospital bed. The text quotes “Who has the right to tell me that I don't deserve this choice? That I deserve to suffer for weeks or months in tremendous amounts of physical and emotional pain?” Lennie wasn’t able to realize this with his low mental capacity, but George understood it and decided to make the choice for him. He saved him from a brutal, endless amount of suffering and pain.
Therefore, we can see that Medea believes her actions are not only a sacrifice, but also as a form of cleansing, since she can not risk being tainted by the presence of unclean individuals. She specifically refers to Jason’s infidelity. She claims they “died from a disease they caught from their father” (44). Medea compares Jason’s adultery to a malady to prove that killing her children was the medicine needed to cure the sickness. However, the Chorus is not advocating for Medea and infanticide is actually the opposite of what the women are trying to say.
Grierson surely would not approve that relationship, he tried to protect her daughter against a man like Homer from the beginning. Perhaps that was the reason why Emily was so inconsiderate and bought poison. Mr. Grierson was a Father, a Man, who was respected by Emily, and the only sin he could not have forgiven if his daughter had married with a poor worker. That could be the main reason why she went to the drugstore. Although she felt something, maybe (because of his father’s strict principle) she did not know what was that feeling, the meaning of love was unknown.
Most of the time, psychiatric clinical research constitutes patients who are quite vulnerable and helpless due to their incapability to give consent. These patients are ethically and morally acceptable if there are no other ways of addressing the clinical questions made available to them. Conflict of interest is quite prevalent among psychiatric clinical trials, where there is a greater possibility of reporting a drug to be better than a placebo. In a study by Frances (2007), where 397 clinical trials were taken a closer look at, 239 trials had received funding from the pharmaceutical company that had manufactured the drug being studied, or other interested parties. Another 187 studies had included one or more authors with financial conflict of interest (Frances, 2007).
Therapy based on evidence had been tried and trusted ever since. Especially, when it comes to behavioral-cognitive therapy, empirical evidence is very useful and also in some parts of family therapy, it can help to proceed through the issues as well. I still think that experience is more important than empirical evidence, just because of the fact that every client is different and in particular in family therapy we have more than one person that is meant to be helped. Here, professional practical skills, knowledge, and much experience is needed to perform best. No theory or technique can be good enough to help a client, if the therapist does not know how to convey the knowledge he has.
Now we see that it ranges anyway from poverty to not have guidance from a counselor at a younger age. All these things are very important in making kids not want to go and deterring them away. So in the future we will all have to play a part in making this change so everyone gets a chance to go to college, because it is very important and can lead to a better chance at life and a future for some of these kids and without it they might not get the chance to do what they want with their lives. Further research could have been done if I had more time. It would have progressed my paper and maybe I could have talked to some of my family members who didn't attend college and find out their reasons.
Atwood reveals this when Offred is at the gynecologist and he offers to impregnate her, then she remembers her husband Luke and says no (61). Morals and values help you know what is right and wrong, which helps build character. Remembering the values you were taught as a child will help you make better decisions as an adult because those morals have been instilled in you for your whole life. For example, if you are raised with the moral of being honest and telling the truth, then that will benefit your life because people will respect you for being honest. Remembering your values is helpful in situations where good morals are needed, such as helping others, because when you help others, you also feel good.
Government Site for Medicare (2010), “In 1981, Medicaid patients had more flexibility and choice to select their own health care providers” (p. 1). This was helpful so people could pick providers that they wanted and not forced to have providers they did not find useful. Growing up, I used Medicaid and I remember my mother not liking the pediatrician my siblings and I had. She wanted the provider that helped her deliver all her children and it was not a problem to go back. I find that very useful for people that do not know the dominate language to be able pick providers that are able to speak their language.
Doctors report that they now spend more time explaining to patients why an expensive new drug is no better than the one they already take, or that the patient isn 't suffering from a nebulous condition like fibromyalgia, just the normal aches and pains of aging.” This pressures physicians to prescribe when patients come in requesting a particular newer (not necessarily better), more expensive medication by name. 70% of physicians complied with requests when a patient requests a medication by name (Freundlich). Rather than advertising a new drug, education on the condition itself would be more effective. If the government would regulate and limit DTC drug advertising, it would reduce healthcare spending. Three bills have been proposed to solve this: Families for ED Advertising Decency Act (bans ads for prescription sexual aids like Viagra from prime-time television due to children possibly seeing it), prohibiting
Thulia thinks Trump won 't do much about the problem. I think that doctors should give patients more information when prescribing opioids to patients. Many people that just had a painful surgery take opioids to stop their pain and then shortly get addicted after from taking the pills, I believe people would not get as tempted, and feel like it is ok to take opioids, if they knew they were highly addictive. Allen, a recovering addict, had to research her symptom to find out why she was having this temptation to take these pain killing pills when she was not even in pain. Allen’s doctor never told her about the danger of these “painkillers” but once Allen found out, she was concerned about herself, and knew she was addicted and in
There is a problem with abusing and misusing ADHD prescription drugs. People who do not have ADHD are taking some of the medications prescribed to people with ADHD. This problem can be solved by having a system for doctors to tell if someone already has a medication from another doctor, only taking medication that is prescribed to you, and noticing any unusual behavior from family members or friends. Ritalin and Adderall are medications typically prescribed to treat ADHD, and they are the top two ADHD drugs to be abused. “It’s a drug
It is common, for example, in people with parkinson’s disease that anticholinergic agents are used to control bladder over activity, and benzodiazepines for anxiety. Only when Parkinson’s disease medications have been reduced as much as can be tolerated, then quetiapine is to be considered. This recommendation is not evidence based and is instead based on the experience of clinicians. Clozapine, despite level 1 evidence to support its use, was also to be “considered” due to the logistical problem of blood monitoring. The committee felt that quetiapine, although not having randomized controlled trial data to support its use, did have the data to support its safety, whereas all other atypical antipsychotics, excepting clozapine, did not.
