A COMPUTER-BASED EDUCATION INTERVENTION TO ENHANCE SURROGATES INFORMED CONSENT FOR GENOMICS RESEARCH

 

Description

Read the following article: A Computer-Based Education Intervention to Enhance Surrogates’ Informed Consent for Genomics Research Ethics guidelines now require that individuals give informed consent to participate in research. Existing ethical guidelines do not help us decide how to seek consent and have allowed managerial experimentation to remain unchecked. Based on your understanding of the topic and the article, answer the following question: Do you think that alternative forms of community consent should be actively pursued? Why or why not?

How would you feel if your medical records were examined and included in research without your consent based on an illness in the past? Discussion Question 2 Scenario Two nurse researchers are interested in studying whether a pain assessment tool for critical care patients is valid and reliable when applied to a group of patients who cannot communicate verbally due to mechanical ventilation. They design a validation study in which randomly selected patients will be assessed using the tool after a painful procedure (tracheal suctioning) and after a nonpainful procedure (oral care).

If patient responses result in higher scores after the painful procedure than after the nonpainful one, then the researchers will conclude that the tool is effective for these patients in differentiating pain responses from responses to nursing procedures in general. Using the checklist in the text, discuss and draw a conclusion as to whether this study will likely be exempt, expedited, or full review. Would the study be considered ethical? Explain your rationale. Discussion Question 3 Research a historical experiment that impacted or helped shape the development of ethical codes and regulations. Discuss the experiment and discuss the rights violated within the study (if any). Discuss any outcomes or legislature associated with the study. What type of consent would have been needed to make the study ethical and valid? Citations should conform to APA guidelines. You may use this APA Citation Helper as a convenient reference for properly citing resources or connect to the APA Style website through the APA icon below

A counselor has been treating a client, Jay, who was recently in a bad accident that left him bedridden and partially paralyzed. With sustained physiotherapy and medication, the paralytic effect has gone, but motor movements are still affected.

Confidentiality

A counselor has been treating a client, Jay, who was recently in a bad accident that left him bedridden and partially paralyzed. With sustained physiotherapy and medication, the paralytic effect has gone, but motor movements are still affected.

Jay’s steady girlfriend left him when she could not cope with the demands of a paralytic partner. Jay lost his job too. These left a heavy dent on his self-esteem, and he was slowly letting his life slip past. He began attending therapy at the insistence of friends.

One day, he discloses to his counselor that he is contemplating suicide because there is nothing he looks forward to in life. He announces that he has had enough of living and plans to shoot himself that evening. The counselor knows he has access to an old hunting rifle and that he has attempted suicide in the past. He has been under treatment for major clinical depression for the past three months.

  • Discuss the ethical issues presented in this scenario; identify the ethical code number and definition.
  • Describe the limits of confidentiality that must be considered. Explain in  detail with examples
  • Justify whether or not the counselor would need to break confidentiality. Explain thoroughly
  • Describe the steps the counselor should follow if he or she finds it necessary to break confidentiality. Details here and references with examples
  • Compare the ethical issues presented in this scenario to the APA’s ethical standards and describe the similarities or differences in the ethical codes using the following website: http://www.apa.org/ethics/code/index.aspx.
  • When is it appropriate to breach confidentiality?
  • Your client is threatening to harm himself. As his mental health worker, what is your responsibility? Explain and refrences

A county health department wants to increase the number of Medicaid beneficiaries that participate in prenatal care. It knows that only 40 percent of the expectant mothers eligible for prenatal care fully use the benefit.

Organizational Strategy

A county health department wants to increase the number of Medicaid beneficiaries that participate in prenatal care. It knows that only 40 percent of the expectant mothers eligible for prenatal care fully use the benefit. Many of these target customers make only one or two prenatal visits and then drop out of the program. Most of these women visit the emergency room if they have problems during pregnancy, and also come to the emergency room when they are in labor.

In 5- to 6-pages:
1 Define at least four questions you would need to ask in order to write a SWOT analysis.
2 Write vision and mission statements for the county health department that provides services to pregnant women.
3 Write at least four objectives for the department. In your objectives, try to address the problem presented in the scenario.

A Critical &amp reflective analysis of an experience of Mental Health Nursing decision making

 

Clarification for Assignment.

A Critical & reflective analysis of an experience of Mental Health Nursing decision making. > Drawn from your own practice <

This essay offers an opportunity to identify a Complex Care Incident in practice and reflect on it at a significant levels.

You need to consider;

· Theory, Research & Policy

· Multiple perspectives… which must include; Service User and Carers perspective

· Identify a decision that was made from your own practice.

This means something you were directly involved in or where you were an observer.

· This is the decision that was made.

· This is the process that was gone through.

· These are the various views/factors that were fused together to come to the decision.

Include Users & Carers in the identification of the Multiple perspectives.

Identifying the competing demands of the decision making process

· Scrutinise the process of decision making.

· What was the context of the decision making process?

The focus needs to be the process of reaching a decision, NOT the repercussion of the decision made.

Reflecting on tutorials, clarifying the issue to be focussed on… Considering, what is the Decision that was made that I will focus on.

Be aware, presenting such a complex decision where poor practice or Safeguarding / Whistleblowing may be required, as this will lead into a much longer complicated assignment.

A useful way to address this assignment would be to imagine that you are a qualified nurse and the CQC came to visit and asked why a certain decision was made as regards User care.
