  • Physician Reported Syphilis and Ethics

    5 pages in length. The moral obligation Jeff's doctor is compelled to uphold falls under support of deontological ethics, a theory that espouses one's moral duty in any given situation. As a physician, he is torn between his purported duty to warn and the obligation to protect doctor/patient confidentiality; however, the moment Jeff's actions caused other people to become unwitting victims of his indiscretion, the deontological obligation overruled any professional accountability the doctor may have had. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Patient Outcomes and the Collaboration Between Physicians and Nurses

    A 5 page research paper that explores the crucial nature of nurse/doctor collaboration in patient outcomes. In 1967, Leonard I. Stein, MD, described the pattern of basic communication between a physician and an attending nurse as the "Doctor-Nurse Game." The expectation in this communication "game" was that a nurse, usually a woman, would make suggestions for patient care, but would do so in a manner that would make it seem as if the idea came from the physician (Haddad, 2003). A major rule of the "game" was that open disagreement or overt challenges to the physician's authority and judgement were to be avoided at all costs (Haddad, 2003). This paradigm is not only outdated, but also incredibly inefficient and disrespectful to all parties involved. However, some doctors insist on playing it, to the detriment of patient care. Research indicates that facilitating the highest standard of patient care requires effective nurse/doctor collaboration. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Operating Room Communication Between Physician and Nurse

    A 3 page paper reviewing the state of communication between doctor and nurse in the OR and assessing changes that continue to occur. The relationship is stereotyped as being adversarial, but recent research indicates that the trend toward alliance of healthcare professionals is finding its way to the OR now as well. The state of nurse-doctor communications in the OR appears to fall on a continuum between negative and positive, and appears to be moving toward the more positive end as the issue of communication continues to gain increasing attention. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Computer System Development

    This 6 page paper looks at a case study provided by the student and summarised the problem, the need to develop a computer network for a doctors surgery that will allow connections to the hospital and the doctors home and then carry out a requirements analysis. The bibliography cites 3 sources.
