  • Legal and Medical Issues Associated with a Patient's 'Right to Die'

    This is an 8 page paper discussing the medical and legal issues involved with a patient’s “right to die”. The “right to die” for a patient has long been considered an ethical issue and was not considered feasible until modern medicine and laws allowed for the possibility of patients to consider physician assisted suicide. Supporters of physician assisted suicide believe that patients have the right to make their own informed decisions about their medical treatment which may include physician assisted suicide if they are suffering and have a terminal illness. Opponents believe that to legally allow for physician assisted suicide begins the path down a slippery slope and in cases where comatose patients are considered does not protect the most vulnerable members of society when family members and physicians decide their fate where other factors not for the sake of the patient, such as financial concerns, are weighed against what is considered an acceptable level of life. Physician assisted suicide does exist however and in all cases, several issues must be addressed to respect the patient’s medical options, informed decision making, psychological well being, and in some cases the right to chose death over circumstance which should not be denied by the courts. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Adding an Athletic Trainer to the Sports Medicine Clinic

    A 4 page paper promoting the concept of adding an athletic trainer to a sports medicine clinic. The paper argues that an existing sports medicine clinic has the opportunity to use athletic trainers on staff in the same roles that nurse practitioners and physician assistants fill in the practices of internists, gynecologists and other medical specialties, as well as providing better client education for injury prevention. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Gene Therapy and Shaywitz and Ausiello's Back To The Future

    Shaywitz and Ausiello, in their article, Back To The Future, Medicine and Our Genes, argue that the emerging gene sciences will reunite the patient, doctor and researcher in ways not seen since the 19th and early 20th centuries. This 5 page paper proposes that, in exploring the issues concerned with gene therapy, it seems as though the judgment of Shaywitz and Ausiello is well within the ethical bounds of religious and medical tenets. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Psychology and Alternative Medicines

    This 17 page paper discusses alternative and complimentary medicines as they may be applied to the area of mainstream and conventional medicine. Alternative medicines explored include yoga, acupuncture, and naturopathy and how they may be integrated into the treatment of the terminally ill, those suffering from chronic pain, anxiety disorders and others. Congressional testimonies included as well as quotes from experts in the field. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • 3 Sociological Views on the Shortage of Nurses

    5 pages in length. The nursing industry of years gone by saw beyond society's brusque and compassionless approach to medicine by providing humanistic care beyond the traditional way. The lack of humanistic care made glaringly apparent by the medical community's unemotional arms-length attitude was precisely what nurses like Florence Nightingale sought to correct, believing that a world without the ability to touch – along with treating the disease – is not a world where actual healing occurs. Under her wing, Nightingale took care of the soldiers while at the same time training other women to "nurse" them back to health. Indeed, one can readily contend that her efforts as a means to humanize the medical industry have often struggled to continue in contemporary practice. Examining today's nursing shortage finds several sociological perspectives under consideration as they relate to Nightingale's original approach, with the tenets of conflict theory, functional analysis and symbolic interactionism employed as a means by which to seek out a more humane and holistic approach to medicine. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Pain Management Choices and Patients Rights

    This 5 page paper addresses issues surrounding pain management. Should a patient be allowed to die if medical science cannot properly manage his or her pain?

Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Medicinal Marijuana

  • Medical Experts and the Decline in Trust

    This 5 page paper argues that with increased class mobility, changing class structures and social norms, and increased information flow individuals have a declining trust in the knowledge and abilities of experts. This is demonstrated by an examination of the changing role of doctors in an era of alternative medicine and awareness of medical negligence combined with individual specialisation. The bibliography cites 7 sources.

  • Applications of Orthopedic Sports Medicine

    12 pages in length. The field of orthopedic sports medicine has become a uniquely specialized occupation due to the intricate and often repetitive damage that occurs from sports-related injuries. Once having been incorporated as a part of regular medicine, the need was highly warranted for a separate entity as a means by which to deal with the special problems inherent to orthopedic sports medicine. It is not unusual to find lay people and those with sports injuries themselves becoming involved as both trainers and support personnel, proving to be particularly effective when working toward a degree in Health and Physical Education. The writer discusses orthopedic sports medicine as it relates to academic and practical application. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

  • Integration of Alternative Medicine with Western Medicine

    7 pages in length. Concluding evidence points toward a growing trend of western medicine practitioners collaborating closely with alternative doctors. It is not without significant forethought that the two very separate entities have joined together to create a synergistic approach to health care. The writer discusses that prevention is the key for the alternative approach, where historically and typically, the western medicine practitioner has focused more upon treating the illness or disease after it has already been diagnosed. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Becoming a Doctor Motivation

  • Witches, Midwives, and Nurses A History of Women Healers by Ehrenreich and English

    5 pages in length. The topic of this book evokes a sense of patriarchal control and unmitigated ignorance with regard to the 'science' of medicine and how it has evolved during the past few hundred years. Women's contributions, disregarded and shunned until very recently, have historically been overshadowed by oppressive patriarchal perspectives; by chronicling the events that have occurred throughout the centuries in relation to women and the medical community, Ehrenreich and English help to illustrate just how despotic the entire male-based medical profession has been, particularly in light of the unpleasant legacy left by the witch hunts of old. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Discussion of U.S. Supreme Court Cases with Controversial Issues

    8 pages in length. Within the past several years, the Supreme Court has had to grapple with many controversial issues and decide accordingly the best way to appease both the law and the public. A number of such issues have represented the changing times where individuals are routinely forced to seek legal guidance from the nation's highest court. The writer discusses doctor-assisted suicide, medicinal/religious marijuana and the Family Medical Leave Act as they relate to Supreme Court rulings. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Medical Model and Psychology

    This 3 page paper discusses different issues beginning with the influence of evolution theory on psychology. The other major issue is the relationship between the medical model and clinical applications in psychology. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Nursing Perspective on the Issue of Living Organ Donation

    A 3 page research paper that looks at this issue. Nursing practice, in regards to transplant medicine, involves numerous potential problems. Not only does the nurse have to be aware of possible medical complications for both the recipient and the donor in cases where a relative donates living tissue, but the entire subject of live organ donation is potentially troublesome due to ethnical considerations. This is particularly true when the donor is the child of the intended recipient; however, ethical consideration should always be scrutinized in such cases. The writer examines a case study and discusses ethics. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Nursing Values and Beliefs Defined

    4 pages in length. The common denominator among nurses may be an overwhelming compassion toward helping mankind, however, there is considerably more to the wide-ranging aspect of nursing than merely administering medicine; in fact, the myriad components that ultimately comprise the vast application of nursing delve into issues of metaphysics, the mind/body connection and an overall holistic approach based upon four primary conceptual standards. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Is Walking Beneficial for Human Health?

    This 5 page paper examines the benefits of walking. The only source used is a 2008 issue of Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise. Three articles are cited. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Are Physicians' Professionalism Sacrificing Humanity?

    6 pages in length. One would automatically surmise that those who enter into the medical field as a doctor would understand the inherent connection between mind and body health. Patch Adams did, yet his approach to the practice of medicine was anything but conventional. Adams refused to sacrifice his humanity for the profession he had come to respect and enjoy, partly because he believed he had a great deal of healing to offer, as well as the fact that he saw a significant amount of non-medicinal oversight within the business of mental and physical restoration. Why was Adams’ desire to inspire happiness and frivolity looked upon so disdainfully by his medical associates? Because the unique individual who was Patch Adams was insightful enough to look well beyond the finite concept of traditional medicine as a means by which to treat illness; rather, his wholehearted contention was that people can help themselves become well if their mental outlook was more favorable. The writer discusses how it became Adams’ mission as a doctor to touch each patient at a personal level in order to stimulate healing from within, effectively restoring humanity to the medical profession. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Herbal Medicine/What Nurses Should Know

    A 3 page research paper that discusses the information that nurses should offer their patients regarding the use of herbal medicines. It has been estimated that roughly 11 percent of the adult population utilize herbal medications on an annual basis (Dingwall, 2007). Consumers frequently take it for granted that the foods and drugs that they purchase are safe and there is also the misconception that all herbal medicines are safe because they are “natural.” Nurses should be cognizant of the risks involved and the likelihood of their patients taking herbal medicines. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Law and Confidentiality

    This 8 page paper considers UK medical law and the issue of confidentiality and recent developments it the law.

  • Auricular Acupuncture As Adjunctive Treatment To Ameliorate Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms, Depression, Anxiety And Insomnia: Literature Review

    21 pages in length. The path to well being could not be more different between Eastern and Western philosophies; through man's successes in technological advancement, allopathic methods have virtually overshadowed consumer knowledge of or interest in ancient Eastern holism. That Western health care is based within a foundation of surgery and pharmacology while Eastern approaches it from an unadulterated, holistic approach speaks to a tremendous rift in how both entities perceive the path to wellness. This is not to say, however, that allopathic medicine is either inappropriate as a treatment method but rather that it is unsuitable as the only option when Eastern medicine is rooted in proven healing for the past 2,500 years. Taking a pill to ride the body and mind of anxiety, depression and insomnia of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is merely treating the symptom rather than addressing the issues that have ultimately manifested in these ailments. Utilizing such holistic modalities as auricular acupuncture serves to unblock the trapped energy inherent to trauma response so it begins to channel through the body and mind continuum restoring both mental and physical well being. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • Nursing's Philosophical Issues

  • Constructing Ego and Confidence in Children Who Are At Risk

    6 pages in length. Myriad theories and approaches are applied on a daily basis to encourage the development of ego and self-confidence in at-risk children, defined as those who suffer from deep-rooted emotional issues that typically stem from a poor upbringing. Medical technology notwithstanding, going back to the basics of psychology illustrates how sometimes the simplest of applications are the ones that work best, with particular emphasis upon the intrinsic value of exercise and animals. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Ethical Treatment of Patients and the 1975 Film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    This 5 page paper relates the fact that One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest is a perfect example of how NOT to treat patients. The 1975 film addressed the issue of mental illness and the medical community's response. Though the conditions and patient treatment outlined in the film might have been standard practice in the 1960s, they are no longer acceptable methods of addressing mental illness or creating positive patient care. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Community Health Care Nursing and Child Abuse Interventions

    A 5 page overview of the phenomena of child abuse and the considerations this abuse presents in the community health care environment. The author of this paper contends that while some may question the appropriateness of nursing intervention in anything but the medical aspects of this phenomena, it quickly becomes apparent that nursing intervention has out of necessity evolved to not only provide medical treatment for the abused but to a position of working with law enforcement personnel to identify the problem and to eliminate it where possible. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Euthanasia

    A 9 page research paper that examines the ethical issues associated with the issue of euthanasia, which are frequently addressed in contemporary society due to the fact that modern medical innovation has made it possible to prolong life in situations where, in previous eras, death would have been swift and inevitable. As this suggests, euthanasia debates are often associated with the discussions of the legality and morality of physician-assisted suicide. The following discussion of the ethics of euthanasia will consider both sides of this debate, pro and con, as well as how this issue can be regarded from various ethical perspectives, with a particular emphasis on Australian experience and law. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Art and Healing

    The western medical establishment has come to recognize the value of dance, music, literature, painting and drama in preventing and treating illness. Techniques such as guided imagery, dance, art therapy and music have become the tools of health care professionals in all areas. These techniques have much in common with the Chinese practices of Qigong, yoga and acupressure. Eastern methods often integrate contemporary medical practices with ancient forms of healing. The western medical establishment is learning to give the Chinese practices the credit they deserve for the benefits they are able to bring to patients. This 6 page paper examines the use of both Eastern and Western therapies with a foundation of dance or music. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Zuger's "Defining A Doctor, With A Tear, A Shrug And A Schedule" - Analysis

    4 pages in length. Zuger's (2004) thesis strives to illustrate the inadequacies of medicine in its historic, contemporary and future state; by chronicling the wholly diverse approaches of two otherwise dedicated doctors, the author provides readers with a significantly greater understanding of how a career in medicine is not one-size-fits-all but rather a result of each individual's perception of what health care should be. Both interns, Zuger (2004) duly points out, reflect opposite ends of the same system, one that does not work to its fullest - and safest - capacity when based upon such extremes. No additional sources cited.

  • Putting Kolcaba's Theory of Comfort in Practice

    A 7 page paper examining Kolcaba's theory of nursing and how to put it into practice. Many of the technological advances in medicine and nursing have focused far more on processes and outcome benefits than on the comfort of the patient. Kolcaba (2008) holds that greater comfort translates to greater attention to the health-seeking behaviors (HSBs) that can enhance long-term health and wellbeing. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Racial Inferiority Concept

    A 5 page overview of racism as it has existed since the nineteenth century when anthropology, medicine, psychology, and sociology all became vehicles of racism as they proposed and supported theories which perpetuated disenfranchisement and segregation. Even the concept of evolution itself indirectly supported the predominant feeling that there was a hierarchical relationship between the races from the primitive to the advanced. The author of this paper presents the contention that our everyday classroom activities and even our standardized educational tests perpetuate the age-old institution of racism. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Ancient Greek Women and the Effects of Medicine, Law, and Architecture

    A 12 page investigation into the lives of ancient Greek women as they were impacted by architecture, law and medicine. Exactly how these factors interacted to shape a woman’s life, however, is largely a matter of conjecture. Because most of Greek history was dominated by male authors, we must turn to other aspects of Greek culture to glean hints as to how a woman interacted in this male-dominated world. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Thomas King/Medicine River and Canadian Literature

    A 3 page research paper that discusses how Thomas King’s novel Medicine River is an example of Native Canadian literature and differs from mainstream literature. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Aborigines of Australia and Social Darwinism

    A 5 page contention that racism has been one of the primary shapers of contemporary Australian society. In the nineteenth century in particular the concept of racial inferiority was purported by a number of disciplines. Anthropology, medicine, psychology, and sociology all became vehicles of racism as they proposed and supported theories which perpetuated disenfranchisement and segregation of the aborigines from mainstream Australian society. The premises of social Darwinism held that the fittest would survive while the weaker and inferior aborigines would perish. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Great Britain and the Incidences of Suicide by Hanging

  • Children's Rights Literature Review

    A 25 page paper discussing the twists that the simple term of “children’s rights” can take. A decade ago, the United Nations issued a proclamation stating that all children of the world have the right to expect a life in which they have decent clothing and shelter, and have enough food to sustain life. The proclamation also made rather vague statements regarding their rights to safety and basic human rights as well. It may not have produced results for the children, but did serve to set off heated debates around the world as to any further or hidden meaning that the statements may have been designed to convey. The paper discusses implications of children’s rights in terms of general, legal, civil, “life” and medical issues, including discussions of research that has been done in each. Bibliography lists 24 sources.

  • Discussion of Controversial Issues in Classroom Management

    This 12 page paper begins with a scenario that describes the context of the secondary school and the specific issue to be discussed. A teacher wants to incorporate issues-based discussions into the curriculum. The issue is: How to manage the discussions to meet the objective of students feeling safe enough to voice their opinions? and What model of classroom management can be used to establish this type of safe environment and that will also avoid having the discussions escalating into shouting matches and/or verbal abuse? The essay discusses the avoidance of issues-based curriculum in schools. The writer then describes what is thought to be the best classroom management model for this particular situation. The essay ends with an action plan. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Triage and its Medical and Military History

    This is a 5 page paper discussing the history of triage in medicine and its use in the military and civilian health care. Triage, a medical term to mean a sorting or classification of patients based on their levels of medical urgency was first developed as a military term and used in wartime. The French used “triage” to decide who would be taken from the battlefields to be treated and who would be left behind. Soon afterward, from World War II until present day, triage was not only used in Army field hospitals but is also now used in emergency departments to classify the large number of patients who enter each day. Nurses have been involved in the triage process from the beginning and recently the nursing associations have broadened the original three level triage classifications of emergent, urgent and non-urgent, to one of a four level priority system in the United States and one of five level priorities in Australia, Canada and Great Britain. Regardless of the number of levels, triage has become an important and efficient system to evaluate a patient’s urgency as well as analyze the effectiveness of the health care given in emergency departments. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Career Objectives and Philosophy of Nursing

    3 pages in length. Nursing, a profession that was decidedly more of the female persuasion in the mid-eighteen hundreds, has long been considered an extension of a woman's natural ability to nurture. Had it not been for Florence Nightingale's attempts to humanize the medical profession in the nineteenth century, there is no telling where contemporary society would be with regard to humane and appropriate medical care. Fast forward to the twenty-first century and it is clear how nurses play an integral role in the overall development and application of standards of care, the transmission of scientific and humanistic caring, professional performance, ethics, as well as the level of competency expected from the industry. No bibliography.

  • Providing Comfort in the Emergency Room

    As an ER nurse, it is easy to get caught up in the fast pace of the environment, to focus on the technical and critical nature of nursing in the ER and to forget that patients are people with hopes and fears and dreams rather than just people exhibiting illnesses and crying out in pain for immediate release. It is even easier in a rush to forget that these patients have families that care deeply for the welfare of their loved ones in need of urgent medical care and what that implies. For this reason, I sometimes repeat the hospital mission to myself like a mantra to help bring me out of my single-minded focus on the medical well-being of patients and be open to dealing with their immediate emotional well-being as well, as required by the necessity for providing comfort as well. 5 references. jvERexpe.rtf

  • Personal Philosophy of Nursing

    A 3 page essay that offers a template for a student nurse to use in writing about his/her personal nursing philosophy. A nurse’s beliefs “regarding humanity, values, the nature of nursing, the focus of nursing, the goals of practice and the focus of nursing research and education” collectively formulate a personal philosophy of nursing that informs and shapes that particular nurse’s practice behaviors (Courier, 2008). As a medical profession, nursing knowledge draws upon the related scientific fields (CSUB, 2006). However, nursing also goes beyond the medical model of healthcare delivery to stress humanistic, caring qualities that address the emotional, psychological side of human experience, as well as physiological needs. The purpose of the following essay is to provide a guide to a nursing student that can aid that student in describing his or her own personal philosophy of nursing. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Electrical Stimulation For Chronic, Non-healing Wounds Literature Review

    Chronic wound care is considerably more difficult to manage than it seems; a single ulcer or open sore can have a tremendous impact upon an individual's personal and professional life to the point of disrupting it entirely. From high health care costs to job loss to compromised quality of life, what may otherwise seem to laypeople as an innocuous medical issue is in truth quite impacting upon the patient's entire life, not the least of which includes impaired mobility, chronic pain and social isolation (Ly & Poole-Warren (2008). Utilizing the ever-growing technological options for this particular problem has rendered some benefit to accelerated wound care, however, the speed with which such methods as electrical fields like POSiFECT and Dermapulse depends upon the severity of the wound. the delayed and sometimes ineffective nature of conventional wound treatment has rendered the need for more advanced options that while not perfect are showing great promise as a viable and better alternative.

  • How Exercise Delays Onset Of Dementia In Alzheimer's Patients: Literature Review

    20 pages in length.

  • Marketing Plan for Utilizing the Adult Nurse Practitioner at an HIV/AIDS Clinic

    A 9 page paper discussing increased utilization of nurse practitioners for direct patient care at an HIV/AIDS clinic. Increased utilization of NPs in an HIV/AIDS clinic can bring about several benefits, including patient responsiveness, financial considerations and ability to see greater numbers of patients. Patients are likely to build closer interpersonal relationships with NPs than with MDs, which can benefit patients in a variety of ways, including how they manage their disease. Much of the territorial posturing by the medical community is falling away, enabling NPs and MDs to work in better cooperation for the good of their patients. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • Nursing Home Costs and the Impact of MDS/PPS/RUG III System Utilization

    A 5 page paper investigating the possibility of a nursing home nurse traveling to assisted living facilities to provide health services in those facilities. There are many cost factors involved in nursing home operation, not the least of which are facility, insurance, pharmaceutical and supplies costs. Drug costs and medical supplies are costly and continue to increase in price, but those costs still are manageable. Other operating costs can be anticipated and forecast with much greater assurance of accuracy, but the availability of skilled nursing personnel continues to be problematic. Effects of the law of supply and demand directly affects nursing homes’ costs. The purpose here is to investigate the effect of acuity and utilization of the MDS/PPS/RUG III system on nursing home costs. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Roy Model and Infection Control

    A 9 page paper discussing a case of Streptococcus a infection in an elderly woman following myocardial infarction and bypass surgery, in terms of Roy’s adaptation model. The Roy model imposes a responsibility on the part of the nurse(s) involved to adapt to changing conditions so that they can provide higher quality nursing care. The nurses of the medical/surgical floor are obliged to adapt to changing conditions and then to take steps to address conditions as they exist at any given time. The Roy model dictates that conditions will change; nurses are obliged to change with them. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Sociological, Physiological, and Psychological Issues Associated with the Management of Stress

    This 8 page report discusses numerous aspects of stress and stress management. Psychological and sociological factors have become the contemporary versions of the saber tooth tiger of prehistoric humans’ stress stimulators. Theories about the causes of stress ranging from the anthropological aspects to the physiological have been propagated for, at least, the past three decades. Such studies have shown that there are physiological, psychological and social components to stress and successful stress management. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Issues in Ethnomusicology, Agawu and McClary

    This 6 page essay summarizes and analyzes two articles in ethnomusicology: Kofi Agawu:'s "Representing African Music" and Susan McClary's "Reshaping A Discipline." Only these 2 sources are cited.

  • Erik Erikson: Biography and Theory

    20 pages in length. Erik Homberger Erikson, born near Frankfort, Germany in 1902, was the son of Danish parents whose collective aspirations amounted to a tremendous impact upon better understanding human behavior. The foundation of Erikson's prolific influence upon mankind's developmental activities began in an unconventional manner by virtue of art and language courses when one might readily expect him to be immersed within the bounty of science studies more indicative of his ultimate contributions. His distaste for conventional education compelled him to glean a more worldly instruction as only life experiences can provide; as such, he eschewed formal schooling and went to Europe. Erikson's intersection with psychology arrived when he began as an art instructor for American children whose parents traveled to obtain Freud's enlightenment in Vienna. From there he attended the Vienna Psychoanalytic Institute, which led the way for his entrance into America and ultimate status as the first child analyst of Boston; a position at Harvard Medical School soon followed with others at Berkeley, Yale and the Menninger Foundation. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Comfort Theory and Kolcaba

    For centuries, the depiction of a nurse in art is one of a person professionally dressed, but offering something of herself. That nurse is offering comfort, something decidedly outside of medical patient care, something beyond the auspices of physician and related solely to the nurse professional. “Comfort” is the idealized vision each person holds within himself when thinking of a nurse, whether it is reality. This personalized concept comes from a patient who is his most vulnerable when sick and in a hospital bed. 19 references. jvKolcab.rtf

  • Arguing in Support of Marijuana Legalization

    8 pages in length. Although the writer of this essay does not necessarily endorse the use of marijuana, (s)he agrees with the argument that it is politically-incorrect to outlaw it in the United States. Very good points are made from the history of marijuana's existence in the country as well as the similar case of alcohol prohibition during the 1920's. The writer feels that the FDA should regulate the drug so that smokers do not risk using pot that is sneakily mixed with other substances. Medical evidence of marijuana's comparatively mild effects is presented and the report concludes that the negative impacts of marijuana's ban are far worse than those that would prevail if it were allowed to be sold openly and legally. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • DNR Orders Ethical Dilemma

    7 pages in length. A terminally ill patient scheduled to have palliative surgery is refused by her doctor unless she reverses the Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) order she put in place to address her incurable disease. The reason why her physician required his patient to change her DNR to full code while in the operating room is unclear; perhaps he did not want to have the responsibility of her potential death looming over his head without a way in which to medically address the situation. Maybe he was not fully aware of the extent to which her terminal illness necessitated such a drastic order as the DNR. Regardless of his inability or downright refusal to accept the patient's wishes, he was committing a rather serious breach of ethics where his medical practitioner's behavior is concerned. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Yellow Wallpaper & Female Marginalization

    A 5 page research paper/essay that discusses Charlotte Perkins Gilman's short story "The Yellow Wallpaper" (1899), which can be understood as indicative of women's role in late nineteenth century society. This narrative portrays the way in which Victorian patriarchal attitudes served to marginalize women. Male authority trivialized female voices and regarded women more as children in adult bodies than as adult themselves. In addition to this element, Gilman's short story also introduces the way in which the medical professional interacted with women, supporting the cultural paradigm that marginalized women and added the authority of the male doctor to the social boundaries that keep women from having any sense of adult autonomy. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • The Importance Of Studying Psychology

    7 pages in length. To understand man's behavior and mental processes is to realize the capacity, quirks and composition of the human mind; as a result, studying psychology provides a greater awareness of how each individual harbors altogether different stimuli that creates said behavior and mental processes. It is imperative for these aspects to be clearly understood within the context of interaction with others and with oneself in order to better appreciate the diversity that exists between and among people. Moreover, the study of psychology provides the medical community with adequate tools to help those whose behaviors and mental processes are askew and need realignment. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Medical Doctors and Nurse Practitioners Conflict Management

    A 10 page paper using the Kolb model to examine conflict assessment and management. As health care changes and patients increasingly take active roles in their own health care, they care less about hierarchy than they do results and practical application rather than medical theory. Though the struggle is between nurse practitioners and physicians, it is the patient ultimately most affected. In today’s health care system as it currently exists, nurses not only have “more time” for direct patient interaction than do MDs, they also generally have greater motivation. The model presented here stresses communication and experimentation. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Health and Illness Interpretations

    A 5 page research paper that review 5 stories of illness and healing. Insight into processes associated with both illness and healing do not necessarily have to come from medical texts or research on nursing. Literature abounds with works that provide perspective and understanding about how illness, even fatal illness, can promote psychic healing and the most healing elements are not always the ones that are the most obvious. The following examination of definitions of illness and healing looks at the lessons that can be learned from works of literature, each focusing on a different aspect of illness, death and learning to live. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Shortage of Nursing Faculty

    A 3 page nursing literature review that examines articles on the nursing faculty shortage. The nursing shortage is a healthcare crisis that has been recognized as affecting medical services at the global, regional and local levels (Mathews, 2003a). A corresponding shortage in nursing faculty serves to perpetuate and compound this problem, as a nursing faculty shortage limits the number of applicants that can be accepted for nursing degree programs. This literature review shows the causes and the scope of this problem, as well as proposed solutions. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Evaluation of Hospital Quality

    An 11 page research paper that address hospital quality. Hospitals in industrialized countries account for roughly 40 percent of total healthcare spending (Blendon, et al, 2004). Considering this, it is not surprising that hospitals generally stand at the center of effects to improve the quality of healthcare service while also controlling costs. In order to accomplish such a task, the first goal must be to establish standards against which quality can be evaluated. This literature review examines how hospital quality service is defined in relevant literature. The resulting information is then used to formulate an instrument for evaluating quality, both quantitatively and qualitatively, by employing a sample group made up of medical and healthcare providers as well as the patients they serve. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Nursing Competency and the Use of Technology

    An 8 page discussion of the need for technological competence in nursing. This paper asserts that utilizing technology to optimize patient outcome is directly dependent on a nurse’s competence with that particular technology. Because technology is changing on a daily basis in the medical environment, nursing competency is an ever evolving phenomena. The problem which exists, therefore, in insuring nursing competency revolves around insuring both adequate training and provisions to provide the proper management format and accountability which is necessary to insure that nurses continually perform their duties in the most competent and constructive manner. The establishment of well designed quality assurance/quality improvement models and clinical pathways are critical components of this task. A 1/2 page Roman Numeral outline is included. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Nursing Practice and Pain Management Research

    A 10 page paper discussing putting research into nursing practice. There is much research done in the name of furthering practice technique and nursing values. Not all research is of the quality it should be, but even that which is still is difficult to incorporate into practice in many instances. Increasing projects in nursing research are using a qualitative approach, one that typically has been looked askance on by the medical community as not being "real" science because it relies on opinions and attitudes of research subjects rather than on physically measurable (i.e., quantitative) quantities and structures. This paper reviews a well done qualitative work, then applies its findings to pain management in nursing practice. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • History and Recommendations for Advanced Directives

    Considerations An 11 page overview of advanced directives in the medical arena. The author reviews the history of advanced directives utilizing such historic cases as the Karen Ann Quinlan case and the recent high profile case of Terri Schiavo to emphasize their importance. The provisions of the 1991 Patient Self Determination Act are explored and recommendations made regarding their implementation on both a personal and organizational level. Statistics are provided regarding the popularity of such directives. A copy of a generic durable power of attorney form is included as supplementary material. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Community and Corrections Nursing

    A 7 page paper discussing how the correctional facility nurse can have effect in the local community. The US penal system guarantees appropriate health care to prison inmates. US Supreme Court decisions have determined that withholding any medical treatment where there is urgent need constitutes "cruel and unusual punishment," which of course is not allowed by the Eighth Amendment to the US Constitution or by the American character. Providing nursing service within the prison community offers distinct challenges, but it also offers opportunities that otherwise might never be available to health care providers. Prisons often hold individuals that public health professionals have difficulty locating; extending public health screening to the correctional setting can have direct benefit both within the prison and in the local community when individual inmates are released. Includes an outline. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Nursing Issues in the 21st Century

    15 pages in length. As nursing has moved forward into the twenty-first century, has the industry earned any more respect and admiration than it had over one hundred years ago? Indeed, it can readily be argued that men continue to hold both superiority and power within today's medical community, inasmuch as nurses' responsibilities include spending the most time, effort and emotion on their many patients. Such dedication has been the cause of change of heart for many nurses, whose unfaltering generosity of spirit has typically received little recognition. The writer discusses how when combined with the inherently grueling aspects required of the job, it is no wonder nurses can lose the very nurturing element they need to perform the job. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • The Fundamentals And Evolution Of Psychoanalysis

    15 pages in length. The 1940s and 1950s ushered in medical options for treating psychological disorders, many of which proved to abate symptoms but not cure the problem. Still, these pharmaceutical offerings proved a saving grace for those whose ability to function within society was greatly augmented by popping an antipsychotic pill. This time frame - a mere decade after Freud's death - illustrates how psychoanalysis often took a back seat to the easier, quicker fix of drug therapy. As the discipline of psychology gained momentum in its own right, however, so too did the distinction of psychoanalysis as not only a viable but ultimately core element by treating people through therapy. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • Summary and Critique of 'Organizing And Activating Effects Of Sex Hormones In Homosexual Transsexuals'

    2 pages in length. Understanding the propensity towards transsexuality has perplexed the medical community for decades. Not only is this particular population subcategorized by many different variables, but any definitive findings about why this behavior exists has eluded psychological and physiological research time and time again. Authors van Goozen et al (2002) attempt to piece together a logical progression of events that may occur while the fetus is still within the embryo as a means by which to correlate reasons behind homosexual transsexualism through hormone treatment. No bibliography.

  • Ten Issues Relating to HRM

    This 14 page paper responds to 10 questions or issues: the diagnostic and strategic approaches to human resource management; Five greatest challenges for the human resource manager today; the roles and functions of the human resource manager; the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Equal Employment Opportunity, Affirmative Action & Managing Diversity; steps to selecting the right employee; performance management and evaluation; what questions should the human resource manager be ready to answer in a discrimination hearing; what is the relative importance of merit, ability and seniority when promoting an employee; and what is job analysis and what is its value. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Overview of Ford Motor Company

  • The Role of the Nurse Anesthetist

    A 15 page paper discussing systems theory, nursing system theory and the place where the CRNA fits into the US health care system. The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) fills a vital role in the larger health care system, one that will continue to increase in relevance as the first of the baby boomers now are entering retirement age. As is the case in any advanced-practice field of nursing, the issue of physician supervision continues to be a point of issue. It is less so for the CRNA, which most states allow to practice independently. The purpose here is to assess the role of the CRNA in the health care system of the United States. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • Family Violence and Nursing Intervention

    A 9 page paper discussing issues affecting nurses’ ability to intervene in domestic violence issues. As those who are trained in physical needs and spend the greatest amount of time in direct contact with patients, nurses occupy perhaps the best associated position from which to intervene in domestic violence. There are barriers of course, but the emergence of forensic nursing is helping to lessen those barriers. Nurses in all areas of healthcare can develop greater awareness to the signs of abuse. There still is a fine ethical line in that nurses cannot blatantly violate confidentiality. Nurses can, however, become proficient at collecting samples, taking notes and asking the right questions of the right people, always keeping the good of the patient as the uppermost goal. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • A Case Study of Hewlett Packard's European DeskJet Supply Chain

    This 6 page case study is based on a case study included in Operations Management for Competitive Advantage by Chase, Jacobs and Aquilano. The essay describes the situation and the challenges and issues HP needed to address regarding the distribution of DeskJet printer models in Europe. The issue was to develop an inventory management model for this segment of HP's business. The model included the use of generic printer models with customization and localization performed at distribution centers in Europe. The essay then comments on the inventory control model of the student's place of employment, a restaurant. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Issues Related to Management of Ecosystems

    A 15 page paper that reports, explains and/or discusses five issues based on specific readings. The first section explores the concept that indigenous peoples have a natural harmonious relationship with the environment. Events with the Cree, the Yuracare and other Indian groups are used as examples. The second topic has to do with ecosystem management. The third section compares the positions of Pinchot and Muir and suggests what each would think about the spotted owl issue. Next is a report of the history of community forestry in the U.S. Finally, the writer discusses Chase's opinion about humans playing God, using the Yellowstone National Park as the example. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Possible Barriers for MSN Pursuit by Registered Nurses

    17 pages in length. Furthering one's education within the nursing field is advantageous to both the patient and the nurse; however, there are situations where attaining this higher education is fraught with perceived barriers. In the instance of registered nurses considering returning to school for a Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN), the perceived barriers include issues directly related to time, money and confidence. How these RNs attempt to overcome the perceived barriers inherently associated with attaining an MSN is paramount to the need for better-educated nurses throughout the industry. Several issues are raised when research seeks to find and address the perceived barriers of registered nurses considering returning to school for an MSN, not the least of which include the impact upon the severe nursing shortage, distance learning, decreased costs associated with higher education, as well as compressing the overall time required to attain the degree. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • Company Law Questions

    This 18 page paper considers different issues in company law. Divided into three sections, the first section considers class rights and the transfer of shares. The second part looks at regulation of the way a company issues shares for non cash consideration, the constraints on dividends and help that may be given by a company to purchase its’ own shares by both private and public companies. The final part of the paper considers the liquidation or winding up of a company as well as administration, and then the position of floating charges following a winding up. The bibliography cites 3 sources.

  • Social Workers Leadership and Management

    A 5 page paper discussing differences in management considerations of professionals as opposed to hourly service workers, such as the employees of a fast food restaurant. The view of the employee as someone who needs to be watched constantly is an outdated one that precludes the need for leadership. This is particularly untrue for professionals involved in social work. There are issues of governance that must be addressed and rganizations need to have specific procedures in place of course. They also need to have the means to ensure accountability. Most social workers are committed to their jobs in terms of ideology and personal conviction, however. They are unlikely to require much if any supervision for the purposes of ensuring productivity. Adherence to procedure and creative solutions to administrative problems are of greater issue for social worker supervisors. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man, Reservation Blues

    A 14 page essay that discusses James W. Johnson's The Autobiography of an Ex-Colored Man and in Sherman Alexie's Reservation Blues, which are novels in which these authors address issues of race and identity as these subjects pertain to the identities of the main characters and also to the nature of racism, which is interwoven within the warp and weave of current American culture and within its history. In each novel, the authors relate these issues to music and musical expression by exploring the theme that music is both indicative of personal identity, but also an expression of culture, and, therefore, a possible means for bridging the chasms that exist between races. No additional sources cited.

  • Policy of 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' and Gays in the Military

    A 14 page examination of a very complex issue. The author asserts the military's approach is short-sited. The military must open its eyes and look to other professional arenas where the issue of homosexuality has taken a more visible stance. Despite the continued protest from those that oppose allowing alternate sexual orientation to surface in the military, the military is a place of employment and the same concerns which arise in regard to homosexual right emerge there just as they do among civilians. One's sexual orientation does not impact one's ability to do a job. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Comparative Analysis of Allen Ginsberg's Howl and Walt Whitman's Song of Myself

    A 5 page paper discussing two separate poems by Whitman and Ginsberg. The first poem is Walt Whitman's 'Song of Myself,' and the second poem is Alan Ginsberg's 'Howl.' The poems are discussed in relationship to their depiction of individuality and freedom. Both poets depict their subjects in different ways, while still maintaining similarities. Both see these issues as illustrating the connected nature of humanity, whether spiritually or not. One speaks of hopelessness and the other or beauty and God. Each also speaks of these issues in ways that have been, and always will be, thought of for people will always continue to have hope or the lack of it. No additional sources cited.

  • Marriages Between People of the Same Sex

    6 pages in length. Perhaps no other issue in contemporary society strikes a chord of disharmony more than the current debate over gay and lesbian marriages. When one considers the volatile nature of this particular social concern, it is important to understand why such conflict exists and if any common denominators reside between opposition and supporters. In short, the crux of the dispute questions the sanctity of traditional marriage as defined between a man and a woman. Furthermore, the issue of children brought up in such an unconventional family setting has raised great concerns over whether or not such an environment is emotionally stable and or healthy. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Literature and Domestic Abuse

  • Professional Sports and Collective Bargaining

    This 15 page report discusses the various issues associated with collective bargaining in the professional sports world. Issues that have been of concern to Major League Baseball, the National Hockey League, the National Football League, and the National Basketball Association and the players associated with each organization are discussed. Labor law and related regulatory constraints exist side by side in either the non-union of the union workplace. It is important to understand that basic federal labor policy favors, where appropriate, organized efforts at collective bargaining for terms and conditions of employment, regardless if the employer is a welder on an automobile production line or a power forward for a top NBA team. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

  • Society, Power, Gender and Sexuality

    22 pages in length. Termed the battle of the sexes, struggles between the male and female gender have existed since the time of man. Neanderthal populations were segregated by gender no differently than contemporary society is today, with the only appreciable distinction between the two eras being that of a chink in the patriarchal armor that occurred during the twentieth century. Indeed, the issues pertaining to the history of sexuality are grand and far-reaching, having been hashed and rehashed for centuries, only to encompass a new and growing crop of issues such content as homosexuality and gender oppression. Bibliography lists 27 sources.

  • Role of Nurse Educator

    An 8 page research paper that addresses the field of nursing education. Nursing education is a dynamic field that has been challenged in recent years by the issues entailed in the national nursing shortage, as well as the related faculty shortage, while also addressing the innovations presented in increasingly sophisticated technologies (Nurse educator, 2008). This discussion of the nurse educator role looks at various issues associated with this pivotal cog in the nation's healthcare system and the responsibilities involved in being a nurse educator. The final 2 pages on the paper offer an appendix that identifies 5 Internet sites related to nurse educators and discusses these sites. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • 'Bearing Illness and Injury' Review

    A 6 page review of an article appearing in the December 2000 issue of Western Journal of Nursing Research. The authors describe a qualitative study seeking to gain information about patients' views of catastrophic illness and injury. The paper analyzes problem statement, study purpose, sample selection, data collection, data analysis and the conclusions that the researchers draw. The study is good as a preliminary one, but the authors fail to address the issue of bias at any point. They still arrive at conclusions valuable to nursing, however. Bibliography lists 1 source.

  • Cordery's "Another Case Of The Emperor's New Clothes"

    5 pages in length. Is organizational teamwork as beneficial to production and the overall bottom line as theorists declare them to be? John Cordery responds to this inquiry with a mixture of personal and realistic contention in his article entitled "Another Case of the Emperors New Clothes" published by a 2004 issue of the Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology. While the author does indeed hit upon a few issues that leave management theorists hard-pressed to support the holistic value of teamwork within the organizational venue, Cordery (2004) also offers up some interesting perspectives whereby readers ponder which, if any, past organizational theories have ever embraced the fundamental principles necessary for empowering and motivating workers to perform at their most efficient level. No additional sources cited.

  • Professional Ethics: Nursing Inmates

    An 8 page research paper that offers a discussion of professional nursing ethics, which is taken from the perspective of the student researching this topic whose current practice environment is the Los Angeles Central Jail. Therefore, the ethical issues discussed focus on the challenges and ethical dilemmas that are inherent to this clinical environment. However, prior to addressing these specific issues that are inherent to nursing with a correctional facility, which will be referred to as "correctional nursing," it is enlightening to place the parameters of this discussion within a conceptual framework. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • The Ethical Issues Involved With Assisted Suicide

    This 5 page report discusses various ethical issues associated with assisted suicide. The debate has generally centered around both the moral and legal issues of the process. The central argument for assisted suicide is based on respect for the patients' autonomy. The main argument against assisted suicide is the belief in the inherent sacredness of life and that God only has the right to end one's life. The ethical questions surrounding the care of terminally ill patients often focus on when treatment should be withheld or withdrawn. A case study regarding a paralyzed but mentally competent adult, African-American man and a severely disabled newborn is also considered. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Tennessee Law and the Environmental Effects of Surface Sewage Runoff

    This 7 page report discusses the environmental impact of sewage runoff in a variety of landscapes. Over 5.3 million metric tons of sewage sludge are produced in the United States every year.

  • Issues, Problems, and Solutions Regarding Nursing Shortages

    This is a 12 page paper discussing the current nursing shortage issues and proposed solutions within the profession. The United States is currently undergoing a nursing shortage which is expected to continue until the year 2020. Reasons for the shortage have been reported as: an ageing nursing population; an ageing and decreasing nursing education population; less than competitive salaries in the nursing profession; poor recruitment programs; an increase in the overall population of the United States; an increase in the number of patients due to the ageing baby boomer population; and, individuals in modern society living longer due to new technologies and treatments. The nursing shortage affects the nursing profession in a number of different ways in that nursing managers are trying to find ways to organize, retain and satisfy their current nursing workforce during a time of crisis while at the same time trying to organize new incentives and recruitment strategies to once again build the profession. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Shared Governance and Collective Bargaining Issues in Nursing

    3 pages in length. The fundamental reason for incorporating collective bargaining and shared governance within the nursing environment is so decision making becomes a more mutual outcome where nurses have greater contribution toward daily undertakings and management readily facilitates this input. Examining the political, legal, ethical and social issues of this relatively new concept exemplifies how a feasible, much-needed model of cooperation might still be fraught with difficulties when implemented. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

An infant will develop at his/her own rate within a certain time span. They create their own sense of identity. In fact, it is important for a child to have a sense of identity. Children need to be supplied with the tools for learning and proper development. Child growth and development is the result of human biology, anthropology, medicine, sociology, and psychology. It is not only one area of science or social science. The topic is broad and can be overwhelming if one does not keep in mind the simple concept of nurture verses nature. A child must be nurtured. He/she should not be abused or thrown away. A child is a human being after all, and as such has not only the right to develop but also the right to develop in a manner that is acceptable, normal, healthy, and good for the child.

  • Jewish History and Spain's 'Golden Age'

    7 pages in length. Major changes occurred in the 11th century when the Umayyads steadily lost power as the Berbers rose in influence after capturing Cordoba in 1013 CE; the passing decades served as their barometer of progressing power. Cultural and commercial prominence became their focus as capitals and other cities were transformed into Meccas for the two very important elements. As these significant changes were taking place, one more addition would serve to establish an entire population as being both welcomed and honored: the Jews. Indeed, these individuals did not come empty-handed into their newfound environment; rather, they brought with them such important endowments as financial aptitude, politics, economic advisory, as well as a vast amount of humanities-related knowledge in the form of literature, academia and science. The blending of art, linguistics, philosophy, science and medicine rounded out a society that was heretofore underdeveloped in many of these areas. As such, the influence of so many learned Jews soon saw intellectuals and doctors alike holding some of the most important social/legal/political positions in the land. No bibliography.

  • US Public Education

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the history of public education in the United States. Since the 17th century, the Americans have been concerned with the support of public education in the United States. Many public schools which opened, the first reported in Boston in 1642, were still mainly for the education of those in the middle and upper classes as the lower classes were dependent upon the income brought in by their children. Through the support of advocates for the importance of public education, such Horace Mann and later, the Philadelphia Working Men’s Committee, the idea of public education funded by the state became more of a reality with stipulations which would allow for children to work and attend school at the same time. Many discriminatory aspects were still to be overcome however as the education of women, racial minorities and Catholics were highly restricted. Several innovators and centuries later, the development of public education was expanded to include women, African Americans and other minorities aided by laws of desegregation in the Fourteenth Amendment. Today, public education is still a controversial issue since the voucher system has been introduced to allow individuals to apply their public education taxes to tuition to private institutions which may provide more suitable and specific educational needs for those who do not wish to educate their children in the state and federal based curriculum. Regardless of the results of this latest controversial issue, public education will always remain an important part of the American society in their efforts to educate all Americans without fear of financial loss or discrimination.

  • Pakistan's Miniature Painting

    This is an 8 page paper discussing the history, influences and contemporary issues in miniature painting in Pakistan and India. The art of miniature painting was first known to exist in Persia where it was imported from into India during the 1500s at the beginning of the Mughal dynasties. In the Mughal schools of artistry, the art of miniature painting was given a more intense and dynamic feel which differentiated it from the formal structures used by the Persians. The technique is very specific in its use of wasli paper, squirrel hair brushes and vivid water based paint applied in multiple layers to earn it a silky finish. When the Mughal dynasty was displaced, so too were many of the artists who then had to earn livings applying their craft to other objects such as walls and furniture. During the late 1800s, when Indian nationalism began to take place, a revival of the traditional arts led to the re-introduction of miniature painting into the educational system where artists could earn specialties in it. Today, the art of miniature painting is one of the more popular and traditional methods of art especially found in the graduates of the National College of Arts in Lahore, Pakistan, the only school in the world offering a specialty in miniature painting. Modern miniature artists apply traditional Mughal methods in their depictions of the contemporary world and the political and lifestyle issues in Pakistan. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Western English Society and Male and Female Suicidal Behavior

    15 pages in length. Suicide: The quest to end one's life by means other than natural death. That a person would want to commit suicide is clearly indicative of a severe mental disorder that leads to feelings of hopelessness and despair; that men are far and away more prone to taking their own lives is indicative of pressures inherent to the male gender in a civilized society. Indeed, living in today's world requires a strong mental and emotional stamina in order to deal with the myriad issues and concerns with which people are bombarded on a regular basis. For the most part, people deal with these periodic problems in typical fashion by addressing the issue and seeking resolution; for others, however, even seemingly insignificant problems are blown up into catastrophic circumstances where the individual is unable to cope. When things begin to reach a breaking point and the person believes there is no end in sight, the most attractive lure by which to escape this torment is suicide. Both Canada and the United States, two western English speaking societies, have high statistical findings in relation to national suicide that indicate a significantly higher rate among men than women. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Frost and Longfellow

  • The Parish Nurse and Advanced Practice Nursing

    A 15 page paper discussing the emergence of advanced-practice nursing in parish nursing. The parish nurse cannot provide services that substitute for hospital treatment or costly laboratory testing procedures, but s/he certainly can provide routine screening measures, educate patients on a variety of health-related topics and advise patients on when they do need to visit a doctor. Unlike nurses in non-parish settings, the parish nurse also is able to highlight issues of spirituality. In essence, the parish nurse has the ability to treat the whole patient, rather than only addressing symptoms as health care providers in most other venues are confined to providing. The advanced practice nurse involved in parish nursing has the opportunity to provide service and caring at the highest points of their potential. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Literature for Young Adults and Homosexuality

    This 6 page personal essay discusses homosexuality and the fact that it should be presented in young adult literature along with any other issue that will have an impact on a young person’s life. The author points out that there are people who think of it as a the most heinous of sins “against nature” and others who believe it is of no more relevance than the color of one’s eyes. And, of course, there are others who are convinced that they “aren’t bothered” by gays and lesbians but don’t understand why “they can’t just keep to themselves.” Each of these attitudes are attitudes which have evolved as the result of personal experience and belief systems, most of which were established before a person reached adulthood. What an adolescent or teen reads serves as an important component in shaping his or her beliefs. To deny that homosexuality exists r to declare it as a perversion or sin only serves to negate the existence of an entire group of people. No sources listed.

  • The Mongols And Ming China : Customs And History by Henry Serruys

    7 pages in length. Henry Serruys' account of the Hung-Wu period (1386-1398) in "The Mongols and Ming China : Customs and History" draws upon the author's literary talents, as well as the sordid historical events that revolve around China's Mongols during this period. This detailed analysis provides the reader with a scope of knowledge both vast and explicit, with the book's aim being that of a comprehensive critical overview of how China's Mongols managed to rule for the better part of a century. Indeed, the sources upon which Serruys draw are instrumental in his ability to portray this era as one of China's most powerful. Clearly, the method by which the author assembles the work, as well as his complementary writing style, brings forth the underlying reasons that such a forceful period existed in China's past and what its people have learned from such events, which represent the book's larger issues. No additional sources cited.

  • 1920 and 1992 Cinematic Adaptations of James Fenimore Cooper's Last of the Mohicans

    A 6 page research paper/essay that examines 2 film adaptations of James Fenimore Cooper's classic novel of early America The Last of the Mohicans. The two most memorable film adaptations to Cooper's text are widely considered to be the silent 1920 film directed by Maurice Tourneur and the 1992 version directed by Michael Mann. An examination of both films shows that the 1992 version is a worthy successor to the glorious cinematography displayed in Tourneur's film. However, an examination of both films also shows that Mann and his script co-writer, Christopher Crowe, made a number of changes that depart from Cooper's narrative. These changes pertain to details that make the earlier film not only more authentic in regards to Cooper's novel, but they also mean that the latter film avoids issues of racial controversial that the earlier film does not hesitate to address. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Kubrick/The Shining

    A 7 page essay that discusses the 1980 film, The Shining. In this film, director Stanley Kubrick added fresh dimension to the horror film by reinventing many of the conventions of that genre. First of all, Kubrick offers a slow-paced script that builds tension slowly and in subtle, unexpected ways. In many cases, he defies conventions. For example, Kubrick filmed many of his film's most terrifying scenes in bright daylight or scenes that were brightly lit (Dirks). Unforgettable images build tension as the narrative portrays a man's descent into insanity. The psychological disintegration of the protagonist, Jack Torrance, is portrayed via Kubrick's use of camera angles and effects, as well as the cumulative effect of the other cinematic characteristics of the film. While the writer primarily discusses Kubrick's use of the camera, thematic issues are also discussed. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

The bibliography cites 25 sources.

  • Children and Early Formal Educational Instruction

    An 11 page paper. There is a significant amount of pressure to begin children in formal education programs younger and younger. For this essay, a 'formal education program' is defined as any systematic early childhood education program where children receive any type of rating on cognitive performance, even reciting their numbers or the alphabet. It seems to make sense to think that sending children to formal programs at early ages would be detrimental to them. The literature belies this supposition, however, in fact, there is an ever-increasing amount of literature that demonstrates the short- and long-term benefits of very early education. This essay discusses the issues and presents the literature. The writer does comment on the practice of using standardized tests with four-year-olds. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Math Classrooms and Cultural Sensitivity

    A 12 page paper. As schools become even more diversified, teachers face daunting challenges in creating a classroom that meets the needs of all students. Math is typically viewed as the subject area in which culturally and linguistically diverse students would have the fewest problems. This is not true. Upon more careful review, we find that mathematics has its own language and includes terminology that can easily cause confusion to culturally diverse students. This essay begins with general comments about teaching linguistically and culturally diverse students and provides suggestions within that discussion. The essay then discusses issues concerning classroom environment and then, language and materials in the teaching of math. Suggestions for improving math instruction for students from different cultures are included. There are also specific discussions about African-American and Hispanic students. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Homosexuality and Family Acceptance

    A 6 page essay/research paper that looks at Gloria Feliciano's play "Between Blessings," which is a poignant account of a twenty-eight year old Puerto Rican son, Diego, finally telling his proud, macho, traditionalist father that he is gay. In this work, Feliciano's use of language and dramatic devices serves to expand the scope of the play beyond the immediate domestic situation between father and son and, in so doing, brings up issues of culture and religiosity, specifically the stand of the Roman Catholic Church on homosexuality. This factor of the play is achieved by framing the confrontation between Diego and his father within scenes that feature a family friend, Father David, a priest who is also homosexual. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Quitting the Cigarette Habit and The Role of Health Psychologists

    This is a 5 page paper on the role of health psychologists in smoking cessation. The Website of the Health Psychology Associates (http://www.healthpsych.com/) addresses issues related to the research, treatments and role of health psychologists in the health care setting. One area of particular concern for health psychology is smoking. Essentially, health psychologists are concerned with the psychological and biomedical reasons for why people are addicted to smoking and have difficulty stopping and what treatment programs can be initiated to help people stop smoking. Research has found that people begin and continue smoking from a combination of social, psychological, and biological factors. In smoking cessation therapies health psychologists have found that a combination of psychological, social and biological factors are also the most effective in that patients are instructed on the use of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) in addition to the more important aspects of personal and social counseling, coping strategies, skill management and stress reduction throughout the stages of contemplation of smoking cessation through until well after action and maintenance of smoking cessation. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • The Environmental Writer Alice Walker

    15 pages in length. When one thinks of an environmental writer, the first thing that comes to mind is one whose prose sing the praises of trees, animals, the ocean along with the rest of the natural world. While that is the case in many instances of environmental writing, there is also another facet of this particular literary approach that addresses the environmental capacity of social issues, not the least of which includes racial and gender injustice. Alice Walker, considered to be one of the most identifiable of all environmental writers, gleans her environmental prose from a combination of personal experience and historical circumstances that have served to compromise the very nature of equitable existence between and among the races. Moreover, the way in which she employs a certain type of character to compensate for this gross lack of environmental equity speaks to the author's intrinsic desire to revise the entire premise of racial relations much the same way a writer submits revisions to a literary work-in-progress. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Change Theory and Shortages in Nursing

    A 10 page research paper that investigates the nursing shortage, with a particular focus on Canada. Influencing positive social change is one of the most problematic areas of public policy making. Currently, the healthcare systems of all the industrialized countries are facing the impact of a severe nursing shortage that is predicted by many experts to get worse over the coming decades. Policymakers and nursing leaders are struggling to change their systems and public perception of nursing in order to drawn new people to the profession, educate them, certify them and deploy them in sufficient numbers to meet the needs of aging populations. The question facing policymakers is how to negotiate the process of change in a manner that will best rectify the nursing shortage. This examination of literature examines how change theory can inform and direct the morass of issues to be considered in addressing this problem. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

Issues associated with nursing homes’ financial, regulatory, and administrative problems are discussed. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Forensic Psychiatric Nursing

    6 pages in length. Nursing in general encompasses many subsets of care, not the least of which includes focusing upon those who are mentally ill. In that vein, a forensic nurse tends to victims of trauma and catastrophe, those who commit crimes and enact violence, as well as address the issues that pertain to family members of each group. Psychiatric nursing, by comparison, cares for those no matter the age with varying stages of mental illness, not the least of which includes depression, psychosis, schizophrenia, dementia or bipolar disorder. Supplementary training is required for both of these specialties such as therapeutic alliance, pharmacology and diversity of psychological therapies. Combining the two areas of expertise creates forensic psychiatric nursing, a somewhat new subset that is currently charting its own course with mentally imbalanced offenders within the overall aspect of mental health care. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Sexual Conversion Psychotherapy and Ethics

    This is a 7 page paper discussing the ethical arguments in relation to sexual conversion psychotherapy. It is unethical to attempt to modify sexual orientation through psychotherapy due to the fact that homosexuality is not a mental illness and using therapies designed for mental illness are not only detrimental for the client but are also misrepresenting homosexuality as a mental illness. Despite the fact that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has deemed sexual conversion therapies as unethical practice, many therapists still offer this “treatment” to clients based on their feelings that it is unethical to disregard patient wishes. However, since there is no scientific or historical treatments which have shown any success in sexual conversion therapy, psychotherapists who “treat” clients for their sexual preferences are not only unethical because they are providing therapy which they know is ineffective but they are also taking payment for failed therapy. Rather than support clients in their sexual preferences and offer counseling in regards to handling stresses and pressures from society, psychotherapists who attempt sexual conversion therapy leave their clients with lower self-esteem and self-identification issues than when they first came to the therapists because they perceive that they have failed “treatment”. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Changing Society, Sexual Instinct, and Sexual Harassment Issues

    A 6 page exploration of the psychoanalytical issues involved in the growing number of incidences of agression as they relate to gender. Agression can take a number of manifestations, one of the most distrubing of which is sexual harassment. The manner in which we explain incidences of sexual harassment has changed over time just as has the ages in whcih we have observed the behavior. The recent outbreak of sexual harassment among very young children is of particular concern. While Freud would have explained this manifestation as a reflection of sexual instinct, instinct which he contended existed even in infants, contemporary research would indicate that it was more a reflection of the many societal changes we have experienced in regard to what we find socially acceptable and what we consider a female’s proper place in society. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Psychoanalytical Approach to Sexual Harassment

    A 5 page exploration of the psychoanalytical issues involved the growing number of incidences of aggression as they relate to gender. Aggression can take a number of manifestations, one of the most disturbing of which is sexual harassment. The manner in which we explain incidences of sexual harassment has changed over time just as has the ages in which we have observed the behavior. The recent outbreak of sexual harassment among very young children is of particular concern. While Freud would have explained this manifestation as a reflection of sexual instinct, instinct which he contended existed even in infants, contemporary research would indicate that it was more a reflection of a child’s environment and what society condones as appropriate behavior. More specifically, however, such forms of aggression can be attributed to specific psychological problems such as conduct disorder for which there are discernible differences in propensities between males and females. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Workplace Sexual Harassment Court Decision Process

  • Pharmacists and the Issue of Prescriptive Authority

    A 9 page overview of the issues surrounding the needs, justifications, and objections to allowing pharmacists to write prescriptions for medication and to intervene in medication regimes when they determine that regime may be dangerous or ineffective.

Presents the argument that pharmacists may be more capable of monitoring and prescribing drugs than are doctors themselves. Outlines the legislative history of prescriptive authority in several states which have already enacted the authority and the limitations on that authority. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Processes of Gay Identity Development

    An 11 page research paper that explores the processes involved in developing a positive gay/lesbian identity. David Leavitt's short story "Territory" describes and suggests a great deal about the problematic nature of relationships that young gays and lesbians have with their families or origin and how this affects their sense of identity. Within the course of Leavitt's narrative, a young man makes the final transition from an insecure adolescent identity toward a more positive fully-adult identity that is inclusive of his sexual orientation. The issues raised by Leavitt provide a rough framework for further discussion about the problems inherent in establishing a sense of an adult-self within the context of alternative sexual orientation. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Female Gender Roles in the Writings of Jonathan Swift

    12 pages in length. Jonathan Swift is well-known for his scatological poems, in which he took great delight delving into matters of obscenity. Swift's particular preference was toward the female gender, which he often contemplated yet just as often treated with great indecency. In assessing 'The Lady's Dressing Room' and 'A Beautiful Young Nymph Going to Bed,' one gets a distinct feel for the manner in which Swift felt -- both physically and emotionally -- toward women, given the era and mentality in relation to the female gender. The writer discusses feminine gender roles in relation to the two poems, as well as addresses the issue of whether or not Swift was a misogynist. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Physician Assisted Suicide: Pros & Cons

    10 pages in length. There are enough controversial topics in America today to keep a room full of thoughtful, expressive and passionate people in heated debate for days on end, however, none may be as volatile an issue as physician assisted suicide. When this subject is broached, the proverbial gloves come off and a vicious verbal debate ensues that has yet to name a victor. The emotional, ethical, religious and legal standing of human euthanasia is not something to which there is an easy answer - or any answer at all - as long as two sides exact their own philosophies on how this sensitive subject should be handled. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Women and Telecommunications II

    In this well-argued 6 page paper, the point is made that tele-commuting does little more for women than keep them at home-- where they were a century ago. Women who work from their home office/computer are expected not only to handle corporate business from 9 - 5, they are also usually expected to take care of household affairs and even to raise children during the same time. This stands in contrast with men who cyber-commute but who are not expected to do anything other than work during the course of the business day. Various other relevant ethical issues are discussed and it is ultimately concluded that women have very little to gain in today's workplace. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Women's Roles in Western and Hindi Cinema

    This is an 8 page paper discussing the different roles of women as portrayed in contemporary Hindi and Western film. Comparisons of the movies “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Sleepless in Seattle” are made. Both movies were based on the same story but were treated differently in the roles the women played. “Kuch Kuch” had to maintain the male-dominated features from Indian society but the women still were strong, independent yet respectful of tradition and the story touched on several social issues. “Sleepless” portrayed women as independent in their work and lives, but were pathetic in their pursuit of men and the story remained simple and predictable. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Contemporary Law Practice and Technology

    A 19 page contention that technology has impacted the manner in which law is practiced in a multitude of ways. From the perspective of the forensics which can be used to prove innocence or guilt, to the way we communicate with other law professionals or even our clients, to the way we conduct our research, to the way we manage our offices, technology has taken more and more importance. The modern attorney has been quick to embrace this technology. Its incorporation cannot safely occur, however, without deliberate attention to a multitude of issues. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • Nursing Theory, a Comparison

    A 5 page paper discussing two nursing theories, one of which is broad, the other mid-range. Most models of nursing theory are careful to take into account the fact that the patient is more than only a body in dysfunction. These theories have originated with at least one individual’s background in patient care in conjunction with the theorist’s higher awareness of the interaction of many factors in realizing physical goals. The purpose here is to compare a broad nursing theory with a mid-range one. The work of J. Travelbee represents the broad nursing theory. That of K.M. Swanson addresses mid-range issues. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Nursing and Employment Satisfaction

    An 8 page paper addressing the problem of stress and job satisfaction in the nursing profession. The paper includes a literature review and a proposed intervention that ultimately is taken over by the nurses themselves. A facilitator initiates the intervention and conducts a two-hour training overview, but then the nurses themselves meet later to discuss those issues important to them at the time. Underlying theory is that of the Neuman Systems Model, except in this case it is the nurse being focused on, rather than the patient. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Imogene King: Theory Of Goal Attainment

    6 pages in length. An individual's physical and/or emotional recovery is not left to happenstance or the sole responsibility of nurse practitioners; rather, convalescence comes from the proactive efforts of both patient and caregiver, a synergistic interchange that thrives because of equal output. Imogene King fully appreciated the value of patient involvement with regard to healing process and shared this vision through her theory of goal attainment. The extent to which personal goal setting empowers the patient to reach individual milestones of progress is both grand and far-reaching; to remove or withhold this internal power because of political or economic issues only serves to delay the healing process when the patient loses the ability to proactively target specific recovery goals. The impact such a concept as King's has made upon the nursing profession illustrates how the industry as a whole believes patients oftentimes have a greater influence over their journey back to health than anyone else does; additionally, King's perspective was instrumental in facilitating theoretical approaches overall. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Pediatric Burn Care and High Acuity Nursing

    An 11 page paper discussing the epidemiology, pathophysiology of burns, as well as clinical issues involved in care of them. High-acuity nursing is more intensive and far more costly than other types of care, and it generally is reserved for those cases requiring either more advanced or more intricate techniques. This paper reviews three articles reporting on nursing research while also addressing the personal and financial costs of burns. It includes the case of Ms. Pierce, severely burned as a child who was able to successfully complete a pregnancy despite the inelastic nature of her burned skin. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Ethics and Legalities of Health Care

    A 12 page paper discussing a case in which an emergency room nurse turned away a patient delivered by ambulance. The receiving hospital is a private, for-profit organization, and the patient had no job, no funds and no insurance. The patient was suffering from an apparent broken leg after injuring it playing tennis on a city-owned court. When asked how he intended to pay the hospital’s bill, the patient replied that he would sue the city for the funds. The nurse determined that there were no serious injuries present and that the patient was stable, and then instructed the ambulance crew to transport the patient to a public facility. The paper identifies the facts of the case, then reviews legal, moral and economic issues of the case before concluding with a proposed corporate statement addressing future occurrences. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • Origen/Early Christian Exegete

    A 6 page essay that examines the writing of Origen, an early Christian scholar and theologian, who the writer argues is remarkably relevant to the way in which many modern Christians interpret the Bible. It is interesting that this second century exegete would undoubtedly take issue with fundamentalist Christians who insist that a literal interpretation of scripture is the only legitimate viewpoint. While certainly as a Church Father, Origen's theological positions are conservative in nature, his exegesis indicates Origen's objections to scriptural interpretation that focused on what he considered to be insignificant or trivial detail in favor of digging deeper and discerning the hidden spiritual truths scriptural writers were trying to convey. No bibliography is offered.

  • Stress Resistance and a Conflict in a Women's Work and Family

    3 pages in length. "Contributor to Stress Resistance: Testing a Model of Women's Work-Family Conflict" by Karyn H. Bernas and Debra A. Major in the June, 2000 issue of Psychology of Women Quarterly seeks to illustrate how the inextricable relationship between work and family responsibilities is exacerbated by the factor of stress. When stress is present in a given situation where the woman simultaneously holds down a job outside the home as well as raises a family, the conflict between the two incompatible responsibilities is significantly greater; however, when stress is reduced, the work-family conflict is also abated. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Group Work and Alderian Therapy

    A 6 page paper discussing Adler’s Individual Psychology, group counseling theory and cultural characteristics of Hispanic Americans. Adler’s motivational theory is directly applicable to Hispanic Americans. The group approach can be useful with Hispanic Americans because it is a natural, comfortable approach for them culturally. If the group counselor can successfully facilitate substitution of groups, then the group approach should be quite successful with Hispanic Americans. It allows individuals to enjoy a comfortable and known setting while navigating previously-uncharted territories, allowing them to place more direct attention on the issues at hand. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Failures at the Passport Office; The Summer of 1999

    In the summer of 1999 the passport agency and the United Kingdom faced a crisis. The implementation of the new computer system resulted in lengthy delays in the issuing of passports. This 10 page paper is written in two parts. The first part of the paper looks at the reasons why projects fail looking at a range of models that encompass a broad-spectrum of potential causes of failure. The second part of the paper examines the case of the passport agency in the context of the potential reasons failure identified in the first part of the paper. The bibliography cites 12 sources.

  • Fathers, Sons, and the Bonding Created by Sports

    16 pages in length. Fathers and sons share many experiences that help to fortify their relationship; however, there is perhaps no better bonding agent than the shared experience of sports. Indeed, fathers dream of the day they can teach their sons how to play catch, hit a softball or go long for a pass, which clearly illustrates the bonding powers inherent to sporting activities. For boys who may have tenuous associations with their fathers, the very act of engaging in some type of sports often has a cathartic effect upon the issue that stands between them, ultimately affording the father and son to bridge whatever gaps might exist between them. Sports is also an excellent way for boys to work off the growing trend towards childhood stress, while at the same time have fun and further solidify the bond with their fathers. As well, father/son sports activities are a great way to draw out an individual with an otherwise low self-image and help bolster a strong and healthy dose of self-esteem. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • Community Health Nursing Considerations

    A 6 page discussion of the myriad of situations which can confront the community health care nurse. The author of this paper contends that community health nursing encompasses a diversity of health care and social arenas. Consequently, numerous issues are often associated with community health care. Two are centered out for the purpose of this paper, obstetric care among drug-addicted mothers and child abuse. The author emphasizes ignorance is no excuse in the community health care environment. We must simply seek out the specialized training we may need and we must act. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Retention/Recruitment & Canadian Nursing Shortage

    An 8 page research paper that discusses Canada’s nursing shortage. There is currently a severe nursing shortage in all of the industrialized countries of the Western world, including Canada. Experts predict that the nursing shortage in Canada will worse over the course of the next decade and this prediction appears to be accurate as the number of registered nurses (RNs) working the rural regions of Canada have already decreased from 65.2 per 10,000 in population in 1994 to 62.3 in 2000 (Belkus and MacLeod, 2004). This literature review focuses on strategies that are being implemented regarding the key issues of retention and recruitment of nurses, as these factors have a significant influence on how the nursing shortage impacts specific organizations. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • Aging Nursing Population/Healthcare

    A 7 page research paper that examines this issue. A predominant demographic trend in the U.S. is toward a progressively older population, as Americans live longer lives. Connie Barden, president of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN), points out that nurses are getting older along with the rest of the country (An interview, 2003). The aging nursing population has a tremendous impact on the current nursing shortage, as more and more nurses near retirement age. Furthermore, it is logical to presume that older nurses may find the stress caused by understaffing to be more problematic. This examination of this topic addresses literature and what it reveals about the extent of the problem, as well as proposed solutions. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Making Management Decisions and IS Technology

    This 4 page paper provides an overview of the issue of the use of technology, with the case example of it's use for a PATH clinic that provides holistic services. For many organizations, the use of information systems technology in management decision-making is limited by the applicability for company operations. Management teams can only utilize information systems technology that corresponds with existing operational pieces, and decision-making is often limited by the software and hardware systems that are currently in use. This paper relates these to the specific case example. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Critical Incident Analysis in Nurse Management

    A 6 page incident report addressing failure of nursing staff to attend to a patient their care for five hours. The paper reviews individual and organizational responsibility, particularly in terms of nursing’s core values. The organization needs to assess its patient care delivery model to ensure that no patient goes for extended periods without having some staff member check on their status several times during a single shift. Quality of care is an issue that gains great attention in today’s health care environment, and leaving any patient unattended for five hours does not even approach the point of providing quality care. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Common Management Information Protocol and Simple Network Management Protocol

    This 17 page paper looks at Simple Network Management Protocol also known as SNMP and Common Management Information Protocol also known as CMIP are both alternatives that can be used in network management. Both of these systems have advantages and disadvantages. This paper considers why Simple Network Management Protocol is not the ideal system for network management and how Common Management Information Protocol may resolve many of these issue, but also has some additional problems, such as increase use of overhead resources and increased complexity and also examines the functionality of CMIP. The paper presents two case studies to illustrate the way that CMIP is of great benefit to the telecommunication industry, but is of limited benefit to other industries. The bibliography cites 10 sources.

  • Policy Statements and Nursing Standards

    A 5 page paper reviewing three position statements. The American Nurses Association has issued three documents designed to both define and direct nursing practice as it currently exists and as it is likely to continue to evolve. Together, these documents define the scope of nursing practice; the roles and responsibilities of nurse administrators; and clearly state nursing’s social policy. Taken together, these three documents define nursing practice as it exists today, as well as glimpses into nursing practice as it is likely to evolve in the future. Each of the documents is strong enough to stand alone, but taken together, they define current nursing practice well. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • 1820s' Appalachia Laws

    9 pages in length. The presence of law intends to create a more civilized society, one in which citizens can expect social enlightenment to guide their every action. While this may represent the concept of law, it only does so in theory due to the extraordinarily interpretive nature of judicial procedure, a reality that evaporates any semblance of equity to the notion of law. Applying this sentiment to Appalachian laws at the turn of the nineteenth century finds the separation of social classes to be one of the most incriminating elements of fair proceedings; inasmuch as the Celts and the English stood at odds over myriad societal issues, one of the most apparent was that of applying the law in whatever form necessary. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Small Law Firm Management Improvements

    A 4 page paper that begins with a brief description of the scenario. A strategic planning approach will be used to change the management of this firm. Strategic planning is discussed, including comments on how law firms have used this approach in the past.

  • Contemporary Law Practice and the Impact of Technology

    A 14 page contention that technology has impacted the manner in which law is practiced in a multitude of ways. From the perspective of the forensics which can be used to prove innocence or guilt, to the way we communicate with other law professionals or even our clients, to the way we conduct our research, to the way we manage our offices, technology has taken more and more importance. The modern attorney has been quick to embrace this technology. Its incorporation cannot safely occur, however, without deliberate attention to a multitude of issues. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Mappings, Feminism and Cultural Geographies of Encounters by Susan S. Friedman

    An 8 page book review that examines Mappings, Feminism and Cultural Geographies of Encounters by Susan S. Friedman. The writer argues that this powerful text moves feminist theory away from paralyzing debates concerning perceived dichotomies of identity, them vs. us, white vs. other, etc. and towards a broader geopolitical, social landscape. The vision that Friedman offers of the future of feminist theory goes beyond identity politics, as she guides the reader toward greater understanding of how identities are both negotiated and transformed. Drawing from the gamut of popular culture, Friedman relates to books, movies, poetry and the mass media, as she address theoretical issues that are pivotal to post-modern feminism. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Credit Cards and Their History

    This 4 page report discusses the history and development of credit cards. The use of retail store cards and oil company cards was wide-spread by the 1950s. The development of bank issued cards took off in the 1960s led, of course, by Bank of America and BankAmericard. Since that time, credit cards have become an integral part of daily life for the American consumer and are more than likely to remain as such. Competition is fierce among issuers to get their cards and its unique benefits or offers in the wallets of as many Americans as is possible. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Workplace and Sexual Harassment Prevention

    A 20 page paper discussing prevention of sexual harassment in the workplace. The issue of sexual harassment is one that no organization can afford to dismiss in today’s business environment. Companies must ensure that they adequately protect themselves from legal action on the part of employees, but the matter extends well beyond that point. Business is more competitive than at any other time, and organizations of all sizes need to gain full benefit from all of their employees. They cannot achieve that end in an atmosphere in which a portion of the workforce is marginalized or forced to choose between working in a hostile environment or finding another job. Formal policy statements are necessary, as is regular, ongoing training. The most influential factor in preventing sexual harassment, however, is strong, clear management support. Businesses that set out to eradicate sexual harassment will find that their workers enjoy better morale and are more productive. Includes one chart and one table. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Terminal Condition and Informing Patients 2

    An 8 page paper discussing the case of a woman newly diagnosed with lymphocytic leukemia, who has not been informed of the severity of her condition. The woman’s grown daughters as well as her physician believe it to be in the woman’s best interests to withhold the news from her. Her primary nurse disagrees, and the head nurse is sympathetic to the nurse’s position on the matter. The head nurse instructs the primary nurse to be certain to follow doctor’s orders, however. At issue is how the primary nurse deals with a situation with which she heartily disagrees. The paper examines a variety of moral principles as well as available alternatives to arrive at a favored alternative for the nurse to choose. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Cultural Influences Exerted by the Life and Art of Robert Frost

    A 3 page essay that discusses the life of Robert Frost in connection with his poetry. Three poems are briefly analyzed and the writer relates what has been learned by this assignment. One of twentieth century America's greatest poets, Robert Frost (1874-1963), wrote verse that was not initially popular with the American public. For the first several decades of his adult life, Frost worked at a variety of jobs, and his family existed on the edge of poverty. He did not obtain financial stability and success as a poet until he was forty years old (Baym, et al 1762). Frost was a conservative poet who adhered to traditional forms and continued to write in the twentieth century the "kind of traditional poetry that modernists thought could no longer be written" (Baym, et al 1762). Through his remarkable use of imagery and also through his use of rhythm, which mirrors that of colloquial speech, Frost's poems often draw on the natural world to express complex meanings and nuances of understanding concerning life's major issues. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Elementary School and Family Life Education

    A 3 page position paper that defends the role of family life education at the elementary school level, arguing that open and honest answers to all student questions concerning sexual matters serve to protect children from peer and media sexual pressure. While parents would like to protect their children from sexual messages until a later age, the truth is that children are bombarded with sexual images from television, billboards, movies and other media. Research shows that between sixth grade and junior high school, students' intentions to become sexually active increase (Price, et al, 2003). Therefore, the upper elementary grades provide an ideal time to provide a positive influence on sexual behavior by providing honest answers to sexual issues. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Kama Sutra and Modernity

    Modern society is obsessed with sex. Any glance at the television screen, tabloids, or even traditional news outlets informs of a world that cannot get enough of the dirty details of a star’s sexual affairs or even those of a Prince and Princess or a President of a country. Today, movie stars and celebrities are considered automatic ambassadors for a country, making the sexploits of these national figures even more riveting to most people than serious global issues. In fact, there is no taboo sexual subject. This makes it difficult for a religious text such as the Kama Sutra to be held up as a religious document and retain the proper respect it is due. 4 works cited. jvkamasu.rtf

  • Issues Associated with Rape

    20 pages in length. The issues of gender, patriarchy and sexual violence are inextricably intertwined within the complexities of social existence. That women have always had to confirm their worth as human beings serves as a significant indicator to the overwhelming oppression thrust upon the female gender by means of physical and emotional abuse. Examining the extent to which women have been the recipients of such barbaric treatment at the hands of their male counterparts enables one to gain a better understanding of how the progression of sexual violence has perpetrated through the ages; only within the last few decades of the twentieth century have women been able to find any solace through crisis counseling, protective legislation and the enlightenment of law enforcement authorities. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

  • High Nursing Turnover Rate

    A 5 page research paper that discusses nursing retention rates. A consistent challenge for nurse managers today is to control staff nurse turnover rates, which average as high as 21 percent in some areas (Kleinman, 2004). According to the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE), in 2002, the national average turnover rates for nurses working in the US was 21.3 percent (Kleinman, 2004). This high rate is not only costly to hospitals, but seriously impairs the quality of patient care that these institutions can offer. This examination of this problem does so within the context of a hypothetical case scenario. First of all, however, background information on this issue is presented in order to identity the parameters of this problem, provide analysis and present a rationale for its solution. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • An Article on Childbirth and Nursing Presence Reviewed

    A 5 page article review that summarizes the principal points of a research study, offering analysis. Research pertaining to childbirth and the significance that this life events has for women supports the pivotal role that nursing support plays in the birth experience. Exploring this topic, the study designed by MacKinnon, McIntyre, and Quance (2005) investigated the what it meant to a study group of Canadian women to have a nurse present during labor and childbirth. These researchers decided to approach the issue of a nurse's role during labor from a previously unexplored perspective and focused on the meaning attributed to nursing presence. This examination of this study explores the parameters of this research and its relevance to nursing practice. No additional sources cited.

  • Long Term Nurse's Reflections and the Formulation of a New Nursing Theory

    A 20 page paper formulating a new nursing theory based on the reflections of a long-term nurse. The paper contains 4 appendices in 12 pages presenting cases and analyzing them, and evaluating other nursing theories for influence. The theory arrived at is that the nurse needs to address physical issues first, but to hold a view that emotional, environmental and psychological factors also may need to be addressed and that s/he may be required to educate the patient in their influence. Basing practice on this theoretical foundation can avoid instances of "treating symptoms" when causes or contributors to causes may lie elsewhere. It can provide a richness that all too often is lacking in observed results. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Nicaragua State Analysis

    11 pages in length. Nicaragua, which borders the Caribbean Sea and the North Pacific Ocean, has long struggled to obtain its own significant notion of existence, a quest that has been fraught with revolution, political upheaval and economic turmoil. The concepts found in relation to Nicaragua's revolution are based upon the fundamental aspects of economics, politics and history; without these integral elements, such astute determinations with regard to humanity's struggles for democracy and socialism would not have been achieved. By addressing relevant issues from both the past and present, geopolitical historians are able to formulate impressions of Nicaragua's future that prove revolutionary. Analyzing the manner by which the state has overcome such overwhelming challenges leads the student to examine specific components of its composition, not the least of which include demographic considerations, economy, government and military. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Psychology and Self Esteem in Child Development

    10 pages in length. The psychological twists and turns that children face in their maturation years can be both thrilling and traumatic at the same time. In her book entitled "The Magic Years : Understanding and Handling the Problems of Early Childhood," Selma Fraiberg's approach to first recognizing and then addressing these stressful yet magical years is quite refreshing from a reader's perspective. The forty years that have worn wear upon this title do not negatively reflect upon current psychological issues that exist in child development; rather, they have helped to preserve Fraiberg's unique, entertaining and informational book much like a fine wine. The writer discusses childhood development in psychology with emphasis upon self-esteem. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Sports Coverage and the Media II

    In this well-reasoned 6 page essay, the writer discusses what the media's ethical responsibilities should be in covering sports-related issues & events and how these measure up with reality. It is argued that the media spends too much time influencing the opinions of fans while it should really be providing objective news. Ultimately, the media's poor coverage of sports helps ruin the private lives of athletes, creates dishonesty among players & coaches, and in the specific case of college sports,-- helps draw the spotlight away from education itself. Recommended ideas about what the media should be doing are presented. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • SCD and Athletics

    (10pp) Sudden deaths in athletes are usually caused by previously unsuspected cardiovascular disease. Such an event often assumes a high public profile because of the generally held perception that trained athletes are one of the healthiest segments of our society. The death of a well-known elite athlete often emphasizes this visibility. Athletic field catastrophes strike to the core of our sensibilities and often galvanize us. They also inevitably raise a number of practical and ethical issues. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • eCommerce Content Management

    33 pages in length. The ever-changing face of global e-commerce has called for greater efficiency when it comes to content management, a critical component of online retailers that helps maintain unstructured information found on any given Web site. This information exists in many digital forms, not the least of which include text documents, engineering drawings, XML, still images, audio/video files and many other types/formats. Modification is a primary consideration when addressing issues of content management, given the constant modification required for maintaining a current cyberlocation. This ability to constantly modify a Web site's content also carries with it a tremendous responsibility for doing so properly in relation to easy reorganization and updating. The reason why content management has become such a critical component to the success of e-commerce sites is, as Ko et al (2002) note, is because Internet/Web users are becoming more savvy with so many emerging resources. Bibliography lists 23 sources.

The writer also accompanies this group on their first day in 'the field' and outlines their progress and productivity in selling-- under the manager's guidance. No bibliography.

  • Psychologists, Gender and Ethics

    5 pages in length. While the entire field of psychology is governed by a code of ethics that mandates specific behavior among its members, there are times when what is deemed ethical by one is interpreted wholly different by another. This perspective is apparent in a variety of degrees and disciplines within the overall field, however, one might readily surmise how it has been particularly noticeable where issues concerning gender are – and have been – concerned. Two of the most glaring illustrations of this unethical behavior are found when religious psychologists attempt to counsel battered women and mainstream psychologists seduce their vulnerable patients. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Doctrine of the Reformed Church

    A 10 page paper that discusses the Reformed Church, its doctrine and some of the differences between this church and others.

  • Debate Over Partial Birth Abortions

    5 pages in length. Considered by some to be nothing more than a veiled lack of responsibility, partial birth abortions have come to the forefront of controversy. As if abortion, in and of itself, was not a hot enough issue for debate, both the procedure and reasoning behind partial birth abortion are under fire. Women whose fetuses have known birth defects most commonly utilize this highly invasive procedure as a means by which to terminate the late-term pregnancy. After the baby is purposely turned in the breach position, the doctor pulls it down through the birth canal until the only part left inside the mother's body is the head, which legally maintains its fetus status. The brain is then suctioned out and the skull crushed before the body is completely expelled. Indeed, the primary arguments about this particular procedure revolve around the status of personhood, as well as the reasons to even employ such a horrific alternative. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Email Laws and Relevant Literature

    4 pages in length. The tremendous impact computers have had upon today's global community represents the staggering progress contemporary society is experiencing. That business is conducted from opposite ends of the planet, people forge lifelong relationships without ever having met and employees work from the comfort and convenience of home via telecommuting speaks to the reality of what was once only far off aspirations.

Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • New England in the Seventeenth Century and Environmental History

    A 6 page research paper that examines chapter 3 from a text concerning American environmental history.

Chapter 3 of this text focuses on the New England forest in the seventeenth century. Examination of this chapter demonstrates the basic conflict not only between how the Native Americans perceived the natural world, but also between how different groups of Europeans perceived it. These documents indicate that how the natural world is perceived and conceptualized within the boundaries of the human imagination is crucial to human interaction with the natural world. Bibliography lists 12 sources taken from this 1 text.

  • Leadership, Management and Changes in These Fields

    A 7 page paper comparing a century-old view of management with today’s practices. Many of Henri Fayol’s concepts are in evidence today, but his primary precepts – i.e., one “right” form of organization, one “right” manner of approaching organizational issues; full decision-making responsibility for the CEO and none other – have fallen out of favor in preference for more participative approaches to management that also account for and make use of differences among individuals, differences that can give organizations competitive advantage in their industries. The purpose here is to weigh Fayol’s concepts against today’s management practices. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Comparative Strategic HR Management Between Southwest and Ansett Airlines

    11 pages in length.

In other circumstances it may be tracking and monitoring the qualifications of the workers to ensure that they are qualified to do their jobs. It still other situations, “facilities management” is likely to mean keeping the organization’s physical structures and their components. Regardless of how it is defined overall, the essential issue is that people work together to facilitate innovation and improvement on behalf of the entire organization. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Advertising and Marketing in Health Care

    An 18 page paper discussing the growing acceptance of marketing and advertising within the health care industry. There are three ways that health systems can build their bottom lines. One is by raising rates, which has been resisted and condemned by nearly every aspect of health care. Another is to cut costs.

The final method of increasing the bottom line is to build volume, which health care systems are actively embracing as average marketing expenditures have risen by nearly $500,000 annually in a single decade. The paper discusses current marketing issues, marketing communications and advertising, decision-making techniques and considerations in developing marketing plans. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Environmental Scientific Principles and the Hunting Issue

    5 pages in length. By the inherent rights of being human, man believes he has the privilege to impose dominion over the animal world. Nowhere is this more evident than with the sport of hunting. However, there are myriad implications with what many consider to be an innocent pastime; inasmuch as recreational hunters upset the natural progression of species and their predators, they place the delicate balance of nature in grave danger. In reviewing this article, it is clear to see that there is a definite injustice going on in the name of fun. The writer discusses how the principles of environmental science that apply to the issue of hunting reach significantly deeper into the fundamental framework than most people realize. No additional sources cited.

  • Professional Sporting Venues and Public Funds

    This 10 page report discusses the fact that both individuals and city governments who are eager to have a professional sports franchise located in their city list numerous reasons why public dollars should be spent to entice a team to come to town or stay in town -- increased employment opportunities, greater revenue for the city, quality of life considerations for locals, and, of course, civic pride. But the question is whether or not tax dollars should be used to entice teams to locate in a city, build the arena necessary to house the team, or upgrade an arena or park because the team threatens to move elsewhere unless the city does so. In a sense, once the city gets its franchise it is held hostage by it. This paper looks at several sides of the issue. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • Management and Ethics

    A 6 page paper discussing the ethics involved in the Ford-Firestone tire fiasco. The Ford – Firestone fiasco began in earnest during the summer of 2000, the point at which neither company could continue to ignore the mounting problems with the combination of the Ford Explorer and Firestone tires.

The purpose here is to examine the ethical issues involved, particularly as they apply to Firestone. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Formation of Security Management Policy and Risk Management Effects

    An 18 page paper discussing issues that need to be addressed when forming security risk management policy. The very essence of developing an effective security policy is dependent in great extent to the level of risk that exists. It has been demonstrated repeatedly that network and computer administrators face the threat of security breach each day. Building security is less predictable, particularly as groups of fanaticals place their energies into dreaming up increasingly grand plans for murdering innocents by the thousands. Those responsible for forming and implementing security management policy must be aware of the types of risk faced by the organization and then control for contributing factors. The paper discusses management of risks that are both physical and informational. Bibliography lists 17 sources.

  • Nursing Leadership & Groups

    A 7 page research paper that discusses nursing leadership, which, under any circumstances, is a complicated subject. According to one estimate, there are over 100 accepted academic definitions of leadership (Manz, Bastien and Hostager, 1991). At present, issues of leadership are particularly crucial to nursing as the nursing shortage constitutes a crisis situation for many healthcare institutions and the profession in general. Never has nursing needed effective leadership more; never has the healthcare system depended as greatly as it does at present on nursing leaders. This examination looks at five themes evident in literature pertaining to nursing leadership and how these themes interrelate. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • GM's Hybrid Car Crown Victoria and Marketing

    A 5 page paper discussing external issues in marketing a hybrid car resulting from a fictitious alliance between Ford and GM. Here, Ford and GM have collaborated in an alliance to produce and market a hybrid car, one that has been a standby in the Ford product line for decades. In past years, Ford has been highly successful in profitably producing and selling trucks of all types, including its popular sports utility vehicle (SUV) lines. It has performed dismally in selling passenger cars, however. GM’s hybrid fuel system will be used in the new product, giving it fuel efficiency not possible in SUVs yet providing families with enough space for children and all their sports gear too. The alliance can present the hybrid as providing the best of all conditions for the traveling family, whether they are traveling across the country or across town. The alliance should focus on greater perceived safety; greater fuel efficiency and environmental responsibility; and the ability for the family to take only one vehicle when traveling together. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Hurdles Faced by Female Athletes Over Forty

    6 pages in length. Directly correlated with the extent to which women over forty choose to participate in swimming is how active they were in this or other sports throughout their lives; one who has engaged in swimming or some other physical activity either consistently or in phases is much more likely to undertake swimming after forty than one who has had little experience with that or any other sport. The writer discusses other issues pertaining to female swimmers over 40 including gender limitations, discrimination and mass media agenda setting. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • ICU Patients and Communication

    A 10 page research paper that examines the literature on communicating with critical ill patients. This literature demonstrates that communication with the critically ill is a complex area. Some of the literature pertains to the issues surrounding difficult end-of-life decisions while other studies address the problems of dealing with the families of children in ICU and the importance of communicating with unconscious or sedated patients. The common factor in all of the research, however, is that the importance of communication is emphasized. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Black Literature and Violence

    A 15 page research paper/essay that examines the theme of violence in Frederick Douglass' Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs' Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl and W.E.B. Du Bois' The Souls of Black Folk. The writer argues that the violence regularly perpetrated against people of African descent is a common thread connecting these works. While, naturally, these authors address other issues and complications of the institution of slavery, violence provides a background theme that serves to underscore all else. It is the coercive and pervasive element that white mainstream culture uses to keep blacks "in their place" during the antebellum era, and long after African Americans theoretically were free. In regards to the slave narratives of Douglass and Jacobs, the writer focuses on the differences between male and female slave experience. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Educational Leadership and American Literature

    This 5 page paper provides an overview of this issue. American literature includes a vast body of infomraiton that integrates themes that can be applied to every day life. Authors like Willa Cather and Mark Twain pursued themes that have lent themselves to discussions of leadership, initiative, social perspective and even the conflicts between right and wrong. Though not all of the themes in the works of these authors reflect ways to introduce the topic of educational leadership ability, there are a number of stories, including Twain’s Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, and Willa Cather’s My Antonia and The Professor’s House, that demonstrate the most common themes applied to the concept of leadership. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Literature Review of Probation and Policing Fields Discriminating Against Women

    20 pages in length. The female gender is no stranger among the various ranks of America's police force, inasmuch as their presence has been an integral component of law enforcement since 1913; however, the capacity in which they have served these past ninety years has long been a bone of contention with regard to issues of gender inequity. House (1993) notes how it was not until the 1970s that women were upgraded to more expansive roles within the department, representing a significant departure from the standard social and administrative work to which they were relegated. With the 1972 graduation of the nation's first female FBI agents came an altogether different perspective of women on the police force; however, House (1993) points out that even though this precedence-setting event helped to increase the number of policewomen from just over three thousand to approximately twenty-eight hundred between 1971 and 1990, it has done little to improve promotions or decrease discrimination worldwide. Bibliography lists 20 sources.

  • Political Geography Defined

    5 pages in length. Helping the world to better understand itself, Martin Ira Glassner's "Political Geography" clearly illustrates -- both verbally and graphically -- the essence of what it is to live on this planet. His in-depth personal, anecdotal and factual accounts offer extensive observation as to why things are the way they are in contemporary society, much of which helps to clear up common confusion people often harbor with political explanation. From the very first chapter, Glassner occupies the reader's foremost attention with insightful issues and logical application. The writer discusses the concept of political geography. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Social Status of Women in the Ancient Societies of Greece, Rome, and Mesopotamia

    7 pages in length. Within the realm of life exists inherent elements to one's existence; paramount to man's existence is the concept of natural rights. Philosophers have long postulated what, exactly, these rights consist of within the massive scope of mortality, with some contending that natural rights are those that are without social infiltration, while others attest to the fact that natural rights are doled out only by social status. From century to the next, the issue of natural rights has evolved from overwhelming gender oppression to the recognition – in many parts of the world, at least – that women maintain just as important a place upon this earth as does her male counterpart. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Various Employee Issues in the Workplace Workplace Considerations: Entitlements, The History of Rights, Education & Training, Community Support, and Whistle-Blowing

    This is a 5 page paper discussing some issues considered by employees within the workplace. In addition to the basic elements of an employee contract, employees should be aware of their employers’ support of their employees and to what extent this support covers. Employee entitlements for instance may be expected but can vary from organization to organization. While employees are aware of certain rights which exist within the workplace, they should also know whether or not these rights are indeed better or worse than the rights of those who preceded them. Many organizations support education and training for their employees but in almost all cases, the education should be job related for the employers make a considerable financial investment in their employees and wish to retain them. Employees should also be aware of any community-related support their organization has and to what extent that support also benefits the organization. Lastly, employees should be aware of whether or not their organization and state supports “whistleblowers” and in what instances whistle blowing would be considered a positive step. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Ethics and Human Resource Management

    6 pages in length. Because society is fundamentally based upon performance and profit, it is not unusual to find that it is necessary to impart a sense of corporate social responsibility with regard to contemporary commerce. The ethical approaches of purpose, principle and consequence are integral components of business social performance; itemizing these contributions finds one incorporating the interests of ethics and morality within the corporate structure, essential concepts that are often absent from a Human Resources standpoint. It is important for the student to realize that the very issues of corporate social responsibility should rightly exist within every company's infrastructure; however, one can readily realize that social integrity is not something that is often at the forefront of modern day Human Resource Management. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Homosexuality and World Religions

    This is a 9 page paper discussing homosexuality and religion in regards to Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The policies and issues relating to homosexuality vary a great deal throughout different religions. While in some cases, specific references are difficult to find in ancient scriptures and holy text, other references such as in Islam’s Quran and Hadith, seem quite specific as to the opinion of homosexuality and what, if any, punishment should be given. The Jewish and Christian religions both have conservative divisions which forbid homosexual practice and homosexuals’ participation in rituals while at the same time they also have liberal or reformed divisions which recognize homosexuals in regards to equal rights and respect. Hinduism and Buddhism also have varied perspectives within their own religions as while some Hindu researchers cannot find specific references either way, others refer to the Kama Sutra and its devotion of an entire chapter to gay men. Most Buddhist divisions refer to the precepts of Right Conduct but with some differentiation as to the interpretation of “sexual misconduct”. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Psychology and Personality Theory

    6 pages in length. Establishing a personality theory that challenges those already in existence by such famous industry names as Freud, Ellis, Beck and Rodgers must incorporate a significant understanding of just how the field of psychology effectively encourages more than merely one approach. The practice of psychology, which stems from a portion of philosophy that addresses the issue of behaviorism, evolved into a significant discipline of its own. The writer discusses that through experiential introspection, psychology eventually came to represent the very essence of mental performance and, therefore, personality theory. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Nursing's Contribution to Quality of Life

    A 7 page paper defining and discussing quality of life as a concept of nursing. The paper mentions those beyond the ability to care for themselves or be cognizant of the world around them but focuses on those facing change as having the greatest issues for the nurse.

    This 5 page report discusses the hypothetical situation put forth in a episode of the television show M*A*S*H. One of the doctors decides to perform an unnecessary surgery on a battle officer whose record carried an unreasonably high number of casualties. The logic was the longer he was kept out of command on the battlefield, the fewer soldiers under his command would die.

  • Math Assessment, Authentic Assessment Programs, and Inconsistencies

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the interpretative and inconsistent nature of math assessment and possible authentic assessment programs. Several issues relate to the inconsistent and interpretative nature of math assessment within the educational curricula today. Firstly, on a national basis, studies reveal the range in attitudes in regards to importance math assessment has in the overall educational curriculum. While math assessment is often mentioned, its importance does not seem as highly weighted as other aspects of assessment of school performance. Secondly, within the school systems themselves, teachers in mathematics vary a great deal in their teaching practices which can affect assessment; perception of their students’ abilities based on social factors and past performance; perception of the importance of national and consistent assessment; and desired learning outcomes. There are many educational assessment tools which are available. However, assessment tools vary in regards to their expense, time, and curriculum considerations which can affect whether or not the tool can be usefully applied. One of the goals of the U.S. educational system is be “the first in the world in mathematics and science achievement” and some educational programs are trying to fulfill this goal by not only developing consistent national education and assessment programs but programs which are comparative on an international scale, such as that found within the International Baccalaureate Program (IB). Bibliography lists 10 sources.
