  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Program Proposal on School Violence Prevention

    10 pages in length. The scope of gratuitous violence, which has typically extended only as far as the mutinous fringe of society, has crossed over into a heretofore untouchable population and spawned a new and alarming perspective upon violent behavior. The extent to which schools are now faced with the dual task of preventing brutal attacks while at the same time addressing the issue of violence from its core is both grand and far-reaching; that children and adolescents are committing acts of unspeakable brutality upon their classmates and teachers speaks to a tremendous breakdown in social and cultural principles. If adults are doing such a poor job at precluding school violence, the only logical alternative is to employ those who are more like-minded to those committing the criminal acts. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Sub Saharan Africa Prevention of HIV and AIDS

  • China and Environmental Sustainability

    A 10 page paper discussing two environmental problems in China (the Three Gorges Dam and air pollution) and measures that the government has or may take to mitigate the environmental effects. In contrast is the experience of Singapore, which adopted stringent environmental regulations when its economic growth led to environmental degradation. Though geographical constraint is not an issue in China overall, the citizenry could be taught to view their immediate surroundings as the only "environment" that counts as the government imposes stricter, more encompassing regulation on environmental effect of business. This is not likely to occur on an official level any time soon; it is more likely that China, as the U.S. before it, will incur grave environmental costs before moving to effectively abating the environmental effect of its economic activity. Accompanying PowerPoint® presentation available. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

The matrix that the authors create is one that can be seen as being quite adaptable for many different types of organizations in widely disparate industries. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Issues of Emergency Response Disaster Management

    A 20 page paper discussing issues surrounding emergency response as it relates to disaster management. The paper discusses emergency response resulting from the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, but it also discusses events such as Hurricane Fran in 1996, centering on the coast of North Carolina where the category 3 storm made landfall. The key to effective emergency response - excluding the training that can be seen as being a constant value – lies in the quality of communication between diverse teams and agencies responding to the event that has generated a crisis. The purpose here is to address two primary questions: “Are emergency responders equipped to communicate with others outside of their departments in time of crisis? [and] What are strategies to improve communications?” The paper concludes that emergency response in urban areas is highly effective, but that the same efforts in rural areas can be hindered by communication deficiencies. Bibliography lists 11 sources. A companion 16-slide Power Point presentation is available.

  • 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.

  • US Police Forces and Racial Integration

    An 8 page paper discussing the true level of integration—that of attitude—within the nation's police forces. In large cities, the police force is more likely to be organized along racial lines rather than simply being 'blue.' Such is not the case in smaller towns, however, and the populations of all those towns add up. Small-town America appears to have a much more workable grasp on the issue of race, and the combined population is much greater than are the combined populations of the three or four largest of American cities where police-department racism is a greater issue. In sum, the collective police force of the nation taken as a whole can be said to be more 'blue' than any other color. Considering the racial generation gap of public opinion polls, we should be able to expect that blue hue to grow deeper and more discernible in coming years. Bibliography lists 14 sources.

    A 9 page paper arguing that mandatory drug testing should be enforced and implemented. While it may seem as though this is an issue which consists of an invasion of personal issues, in light of today’s competitive world, there are many instances where drug use is a serious concern in high school athletics, harming those that are not involved with drug enhancers. Unfortunately we live in a world where we cannot rely on the integrity of individuals and their own inherent desire to achieve and succeed on their own resources. While the issue of drug testing may involve the use of mind-altering, illegal drugs, the main focus is on that of the use of drugs such as steroids used for enhancing performance in sports.

  • G.B. Nash, C. Crabtree, and R.E. Dunn's History on Trial Culture Wars and the Teaching of the Past

    This is a 6 page paper discussing the book “History on Trial: Culture Wars and the Teaching of the Past” (1997). The publication of “History on Trial: Culture Wars and the Teaching of the Past” which describes the heated controversy surrounding the formation of the National History Standards in the mid-1990s, has in itself several controversial issues which makes it a useful tool in discussion forums in the social sciences. The authors of the text, Gary B. Nash, Charlotte Crabtree and Ross E. Dunn were involved in the selection of the committee working on the standards and have provided a background look at the events which took place during the development of the standards. Different issues discussed were the fact that while several historians approved of the constant updating and reinterpretation of historical events in the past and the inclusion of addition of multicultural issues while others believe that history as it has traditionally been taught should not be altered to any extent. The authors provide criticism of their own critics but their close proximity to the situation also provides additional limitations to the work which is provided to the reader as highly subjective in its context. Overall however, it is in a sense a historical document in its own right which like any other event from history is open for discussion or controversy and widely resembles many of the points outlined by the authors. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Panama and Issues of Economic Development

Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Animal Testing In Cosmetic Labs

    8 pages in length. Human vanity - a most distasteful characteristic of mankind - is only surpassed in its enormity by the level of insensitivity required to inflict painful "safety" tests on defenseless animals to make sure cosmetic products are not dangerous for people to use. The irony of such reality is quite telling, inasmuch as man - who holds the position of steward over the animal kingdom - is meant to protect and oversee rather than maim and torture. Add to this the fact that researchers continue to use archaic methods for cosmetic testing when viable alternatives to live animal usage currently exists illustrates how some of the human race must harbor latent power issues if they choose to continue inflicting such unnecessary suffering. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Animal Testing Alternatives

    A 4 page research paper that examines the issues surrounding alternatives to animal testing. Examination of why researchers should consider alternatives to animal testing in laboratories show that the arguments against this practice are persuasive and backed up with empirical research. These arguments state that (1) animal testing is often simply an entrenched procedure, which is continued due to tradition and law, rather than its efficacy; (2) successful alternative methods for testing have been discovered, which makes it logical to assume that further alternatives could be formulated; (3) animal testing is expensive as compared to alternative methods; (4) alternative methods are produce faster results, and (5) animal testing is cruel and, therefore, immoral. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • The Entertainment Industry and Animal Cruelty

    11 pages in length. Animals provide a significant supply of goods for human beings, not the least of which supports man's entertainment needs. However, in spite of all the various ways animals serve mankind, there has historically been little thought given to their own right to existence, having always been considered little more than a disposable commodity. Whether it is the issue of hunting, circuses, zoos or racing, animals have long provided -- and will likely continue to provide -- humanity with some of its most basic requirements, all at the cost of the animal's own life. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Cybercrime, Privacy, and Security

    A 14 page paper. Cybercrime is increasing every year. The costs are staggering, as much as hundreds of millions of dollars each year plus the cost to human dignity and morale. The crooks have had more tools to use than our law enforcement agencies and law enforcement has been consistently thwarted in their attempts to gain authority to use the kinds of programs and strategies that could result in capturing the criminals. That changed on September 11. The Attack on America woke up the public and the Congress and resulted in a number of new laws that give expanded authority to specific agencies to "listen" in on the Internet. This essay discusses Cybercrime and then, the issue of security versus privacy. The writer takes the position that more security is worth less privacy. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • God's Word and The Bible

    A 14 page paper in which the writer examines -- from a philosophical perspective, how we can say on the basis of divine revelation that The Bible is the word of God? Rather than look at the complex angles of that interpretation, we can take a simpler route to the answer. Why do the interpretations of the fall differ? In fact, there is validity in all interpretations : This -- and other relevant issues such as the underlying message of St. John's writings that preparedness in faith and unconditional love of God shall result in salvation. Bibliography lists 6 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.

All of the topics included here have value in that area of study. Bibliography lists 1 source.

  • 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.

  • 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.

The current state of America's economy has triggered an expansive and detrimental backlash in so many industries that it is overwhelming to contemplate the extent to which this economic downturn has trickled into areas many people would never consider. The frequency with which delinquent homeowners are abandoning their houses has become a tremendous public health issue due to swimming pools left unattended and untreated whereby the water festers and attracts virus-carrying mosquitoes. According to Goodman et al (2009), the prevalence of this particular hazard has spiked the number of West Nile virus cases. Bibliography lists 5 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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 4 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.

The 21st century is hinting at being a time of great changes and occurrences. Times have changed drastically in only a few decades, and there is little doubt that changes and advancements have been occurring far faster this past century than perhaps, in any other century known to mankind. Technology, medicine, and international relations have always proven to be the most advancing, and the coming of the 21st century will prove this fact even further. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Euthanasia

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.

This 6 page paper examines the use of both Eastern and Western therapies with a foundation of dance or music. Bibliography lists 15 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.

  • Lois W. Johnson/Trouble at Wild River

  • Adolescents And ADHD

    6 pages in length. Adjusting one's life to the inherent struggles of ADHD is not specific to the individual who suffers from the learning disability; rather, the need to develop coping mechanisms branches out to virtually every person with whom the individual comes in contact, not the least of which includes parents, siblings, non-familial adults and peers. This is particular pertinent with adolescent ADHD, in that during this period of life the young adult is compelled to deal with psychological, physiological and hormonal changes that make the focus-zapping disability an even greater challenge to endure. The extent to which issues such as scholastic difficulty and low self-esteem are a constant presence in the life of an ADHD adolescent are both grand and far-reaching; that specially modified approaches to learning must be approached in order to reach the ADHD adolescent speaks to the shattering of old-school mentality claiming these young adults simply cannot be reached. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • The Family Crucible by Napier and Whitaker

    6 pages in length. By following a family's therapeutic treatment through the various stages of healing, Napier et al (1988) are able to create a link between family relationships and the manner in which they impact the individual as both a member of that family and a separate entity. This obvious connection to anthropology enables the authors to continue applying such a concept even as the family structure continues to change; it becomes quite apparent that even though this was the case, there were issues within that particular family structure that also remained the same. Even within the relationship itself, individuals often do not embrace the same meaning. In one session, the family's position is noted as being highly indicative of inner turmoil. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Concept Analysis: Aging

    A 20 page research paper that offers a nursing concept analysis on aging. As the percentage of the American population that is over the age of 65 increases with each passing year, there is more and more attention being paid to geriatric health care needs; and, in keeping with this trend, successful aging is a concept that is also garnering more attention. The importance of geriatric health care issues underlies the need to understand the concept of aging more fully and to describe in detail the differences that are inherent to successful/healthy aging as opposed to maladaptive aging (Flood, 2002). This concept analysis of aging endeavors to accomplish this purpose, as it describes how literature addresses the aging process and its implications. Bibliography lists 26 sources.

  • Death's Role and Meaning in Fairy Tales

    10 pages in length.

  • Small Business And Entrepreneurship: Values, Ethics And Social Responsibility

    4 pages in length. To understand the broad scope of challenges that face small business owners is to realize the fundamental components associated with entrepreneurship. Indeed, the extent to which such industrialists must abide by certain standards of operation in order to be successful is both grand and far-reaching; that small business preparation and performance represent a mixture of concepts and real world issues speaks to the way in which owners incorporate various tenets that work best for their specific small businesses. However, there is one area Joyner (2002) discusses whereby all small business must comply if the owner expects it to thrive: values, ethics and social responsibility. No additional sources cited.

  • Constructing Knowledge and Feminist Theory

    8 pages in length. Lorraine Code's 'What Can She Know?' is a celebration of gender, with particular emphasis upon issues of feminism and patriarchal control. Indeed, Code portrays the perpetuation of feminism; not only are her writings a solid reflection of her sentiments of a lacking Anglo-American epistemology but so is the manner in which she reflects the female reawakening. Code displays her craft well and does not hesitate to apply her talent as more of a social statement than one of mere entertainment. Thus is the case with her ongoing assertion that there was truly no separation of the sexes in reality, short of the obvious physical differences; rather, her perpetual argument clearly makes the point that the female gender -- no matter how seemingly fragile and delicate -- is indeed just as much an emotionally strong and self-reliant individual as her socially-accepted male counterpart. The writer discusses Code's book as it relates to feminism and patriarchy. No additional sources cited.

  • Ethics In Information Technology

    13 pages in length. Information Technology (IT) is arguably one of the most expansive and influential forms of advancement mankind has ever created; that it serves to connect, facilitate, market and educate the entire global community speaks to a human discovery of monumental value. Indeed, something so significant in a positive light must also harbor shortcomings that can be just as substantial, which is clearly the case with the ethical concerns inherent to IT. Considered the four most prevalent ethical issues in today's IT - privacy, accuracy, property and accessibility (PAPA) - they garner tremendous attention as the illustration of how imposing an otherwise beneficial human advancement can be to its own makers. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Euthanasia and Ethics in Counseling

    15 pages in length. Few topics in the history of civilized man have been as controversial as the matter of euthanasia. Whether for or against, counselors readily recognize the ethical components on both sides of the issue and strive to guide their clients in the most humane direction possible. The decision of which way to counsel, however, is where the tremendous gray area exists, inasmuch as there are underlying circumstances that – when fleshed out by an intuitive counselor – can mean the difference between a client fulfilling the wish for euthanasia and deciding instead to live what life is left. With each state left to determine its own legal boundaries where euthanasia is concerned, counselors must equally weigh the lawful and ethical elements when faced with advising clients one way or another. Bibliography lists 13 sources.

    A 5 page paper discussing the late-night news show. Born of the Iran hostage crisis in 1979, the ABC news show has been running continually for 20 years with Ted Koppel as its anchor. The paper discusses the general liberal slant of most journalists, the effects of American families' hectic schedules on their ability to see network news, and Koppel's mastery of keeping passionate guests to the issues at hand as some of the reasons for the show's continued success. Koppel himself deserves much of the credit for the success of the show, and ABC will need to carefully select a successor when he retires. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Who Benefited from the Monroe Doctrine?

    8 pages in length. The Monroe Doctrine stood for many things and addressed many issues, both nationally and worldwide; however, it can be argued that the primary motivation behind President James Monroe's desire to implement his doctrine was as a means by which to protect American interests. The 1823 declaration that announced Monroe's intentions was met with a considerable amount of surprise, being that it was looked upon as a mighty bold step toward American foreign policy. The writer discusses how Monroe effectively sought to protect the interests of every United States citizen, while at the same time flexing the country's blossoming authority. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Colonial Domination Independence of Latin America

    3 pages in length. Postcolonial Latin America yearned for the ability to break out from the oppressive constraints of the dictatorship that precluded its people's opportunity for freedom. It can be argued that autocratic rule was part and parcel of Latin America's existence all the way up to the point of its self-independence that was finally realized by those who had been held down for so long. Instrumental to the overall conquest of independence was the coupling of social realities and intellectual developments, as well as issues surrounding the economic and political stability of Spain and Portugal. While many of the motivating factors for freedom were the result of external forces, there were also some internal elements that helped to assist the eventual move toward Latin American independence. The writer discusses Latin America's self-independence. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Life and Writings of James Fenimore Cooper

    6 pages in length. James Fenimore Cooper, the prolific author who has penned some of the most memorable literary works in American history, did not originally intend to be a writer; rather, the fact that he found his inherent ability to write was discovered quite by accident. His literary career began at the late age of thirty years old, in spite of the fact that he harbored an intense interest in reading just about everything that came his way. As time went on, Cooper focused more heartily upon his craft, as well as American issues, which served to thrust him into the literary world. The writer discusses Cooper's life and work. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • America's System of Justice and Women

    A 16 page research paper. The topic of women and the US Justice System is indeed a broad one, containing several aspects that cannot be ignored by any discussion of both the role of and the effects on women. It is necessary to look at women on each side of the judicial bench—how those in judging positions perform their duties and the contributions they make, and how those embroiled in legal issues common to women are faring today compared to past times. Also important is the fair and unbiased evaluation of the effects and the realized results of laws specific to women, such as sex discrimination of women and reforms of rape laws that have been in place in several jurisdictions for several years, while are still under discussion in others. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Comparing Characters in Ghosts and Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen

    5 pages in length. Henrik Ibsen's talent for delving deeply into social composition is characteristically synonymous with the level of cultural implication the author incorporates into his works. 'Hedda Gabler' and 'Ghosts' are but two selections of Ibsen's writing that represent how a patriarchal society helps to eat away at the female characters' very existence. Caught within the never-ending web of gender bias, both Hedda and Mrs. Alving are forced to proceed with their lives as though they were merely extensions of other's, uneasily precluded from advancing their own interests. Also intertwined within the frame work of 'Hedda Gabler' and 'Ghosts' stands the issues of self-worth and the deflated value that each woman places upon her own importance as a result of male dominance. The writer compares and contrasts the characters of Hedda and Mrs. Alving. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Memory's Precategorical and Categorical Distinctions

    Many theories have been proposed to explain the cognitive development of the human mind and the distinctions between the stages of development as well as the types of processing and modes of perception. In recent years, a number of researchers have considered the distinction memory as a component of cognition, and have made distinct delineations between iconic and echoic (or auditory sensory) store and their relationship to precategorical and categorical stages in development. This 5 page paper supports the contention that auditory sensory store (echoic) is precategorical and considers the implication of this theory. In addition, the researcher also provides an overview of studies that could be conducted to evaluate this theory and to assist in clarifying this issue. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Problems of Cohabitation

    A 5 page paper discussing the problems that can arise from living together without marriage. Living together has caused far more controversy than just the value of maintaining laws that are no longer enforced. The focus here is its effects on traditional marriage and social issues. Though the most common opinion is that there is nothing 'wrong' with living together either instead of, or before marriage, there is increasing evidence that there is indeed something 'wrong' with it, to the extent that it is listed as a risk factor against the success of subsequent marriage between the same partners. Bibliography lists 5 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.

  • 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. In the text Major Problems in American Environmental History, editor Carolyn Merchant assembles an eclectic yet revealing collection of documents and essays that offer a form of "snap shot" of a specific period in American history in relation to environmental issues. 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.

Bibliography lists 14 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

There are any number of contexts for an unfair dismissal claim, for example, claims related to maternity leave or to trade union activities. Some of the multitude of Codes of Practice are discussed, such as those ACAS issued in 2000 regarding Disciplinary and Grievance Procedures.

The writer comments on whether the 2002 Act was more advantageous to the employer or the employee as compared to the 1996 Act and its subsequent revisions. Data are included. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Flaubert's Parrot by Julian Barnes

    A 5 page research paper that examines Julian Barnes' novel Flaubert's Parrot. Towards the end of this work, the protagonist, Dr. Geoffrey Braithwaite concedes that he has failed in his purpose to write an account that would make sense out of his life. Despite his ramblings and investigations throughout the narrative, Braithwaite closes his observations without stating anything unequivocally concerning his own life, his late wife, or his investigations into the life of the famous author Gustave Flaubert. While this suggests that the novel concludes with issues unresolved, an examination of the structure of this work reveals how the reader perceives a story that is different from the one that Braithwaite believes he is telling. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Southern California's Organic Farming Pros and Cons

    6 pages in length. Contemporary society is clamoring for organic foods in light of all the reports revealing the level of pesticide contamination and herbicide degradation that has appeared in recent food supplies. Southern California farmers are no different in their desire to please the rest of the country, which is why many distributors are incorporating organic farming into their techniques. In order to meet such a demand, however, some farmers throughout southern California are jumping on the organic bandwagon without first applying the concepts of organic farming, which inevitably precludes them from addressing pertinent issues in a proactive way, such as pesticides and water supply. Securing a labor force willing to engage in the physical demands of organic farming is yet another problem faced by southern California organic farmers, inasmuch as immigrant workers are, for the most part, not educated in relation to alternative growing methods. Bibliography lists 5 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.

  • It's Popcorn Time Marketing Mix

    A 4 page memo to the owner and financial advisor of a single-location confectioner specializing in coated popcorn addressing promotion, pricing and distribution issues associated with plans to implement online sales and perhaps entering into a contractual agreement with a national gift service company.

What remains at present is to ensure that current suppliers will be able to meet anticipated volume increases, and to design the new business goals in such a manner that they do not adversely affect existing customers. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Plasma Lipids and Nutritional Impacts

    5 pages in length. Proper nutrition is, quite literally, the lifeblood of existence. Provide the body with the appropriate food sources and the body will respond by remaining healthy and full of energy; inundate it with poor choices or an overabundance of any given food category and it will rebel the only way it knows how: with disease. Therefore, the phrase 'you are what you eat' is not merely a meaningless cliché; instead, it reflects the various eating patterns found in any given culture and the corresponding health issues directly associated with such dietary choices. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • The U.S. Civil War: Causes and Implications

    A 5 page paper. Slavery is most often cited as the cause of the American Civil War but like any war, there were a number of underlying causes besides the issue of slavery.

  • Sibling Rivalry Literature Review

    This is a 7 page review of the literature on the issue of sibling rivalry which has uncovered several trends and several areas which obviously need more study. Several disciplines research sibling rivalry most especially psychology, sociology, communications and pediatrics.

Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • School Uniforms and Their Impact

    A 15 page paper. The debates and controversy about mandating students wear school uniforms have gone on for more than a decade. Proponents argue that school uniforms decrease violence, reduce crime, reduce the incidence of discipline and behavior problems and increase learning. Opponents argue that uniforms are a violation of student's right to express themselves and have no effect on discipline. Few empirical studies have been conducted to investigate this issue, instead, most of the evidence in support of uniforms is anecdotal but it is very compelling. This paper reports both anecdotal reports and empirical results regarding the impact of school uniforms. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Fossil Fuels and Future Energy Requirements

    6 pages in length. In the not-too-distant future -- with regard to history's timeline -- there will come a point when fossil fuels will have been depleted and humans will be forced to find alternative sources with which to power automobiles, household heating units and myriad other machinery that utilizes fuel. However, waiting until supplies are exhausted before establishing a workable alternative would place a major hardship upon future energy demands. For this reason, various options -- not only those that supply a form of fuel but also those that reduce and often eliminate pollution -- have been in the works for several years. The writer discusses the issue of future energy demands and potential fuel alternatives. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • California State Department Of Mental Health: Infant Preschool Family Mental Health Initiative Delivery Of Services

    7 pages in length. Maintaining stable mental health is a critical component to being able to live within a civilized society; those whose mental health is compromised for any number of reasons are often without appropriate resources to help them function at an adequate cognitive level. As a direct result, these individuals may gravitate toward fringe communities whereby the challenge of meeting basic human needs is greater than they can achieve. Indeed, adults with mental health problems are difficult enough to assist through limited state services, but when the individual in question is an infant or young child, it becomes critical for the state to intervene in the effort to fend off a lifetime of mental instability. The California Infant Preschool Family Mental Health Initiative (IPFMHI), conceived as a way in which to develop and expand "infant and early mental health services for children age birth to five and their families" (Knapp, 2006). Prevention, however, is as much a part of this service as is addressing existing problems, being that the Initiative - as part of the overall California State Department of Mental Health - is rooted as much in avoiding mental health issues as it is in intervention. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • The Patriot Act

    A 10 page research paper that examines The Patriot Act. On March 9, 2006, the Patriot Act was renewed after a year of proposals, counterproposals, two extensions and extensive negotiations (Pike 1). Despite numerous compromises and revisions that are intended to safeguard the civil liberties of American citizens, the Patriot Act and its implementation continue to be a source of hot debate and contention. This raises numerous questions about the Patriot Act. Is it effective in regards to issues national security? Does it unnecessarily violate citizens' civil liberties? Is it being used as a convenient ruse that allows the federal government to suppress its political opponents? Or is the Act being used within an ethical, focused manner that targets only national security threats? This examination of literature on the Patriot Act attempts to answer these questions and present the facts pertaining to this controversial legislation. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Individual Rights Usurped by the U.S. Supreme Court

    A 5 page paper that argues the following: over the years, individual rights have been denied by the Supreme Court. In the criminal justice system, this has lead to the relaxing of laws to the extent that our Fifth and Sixth Amendment rights have been seriously infringed upon. All rights to personal freedoms in the workplace have been taken away by the Supreme Court, and women's rights to abortion have been substantially reduced. The remaining issue for many of us is the Supreme Court's decision on First Amendment rights in regards to imposed decency on the Internet. This decision is expected within the next month. We can only hope it is not their desire to usurp further rights from United States citizenry. The affect on global Internet business is inestimable. Bibliography lists 4 sources. Copies of sources included.

  • Was Monica Lewinsky's Testimony a Lie?

    This 10 page report discusses whether or not Monica Lewinsky lied in her testimony regarding her relationship with President Bill Clinton. The larger issues of Lewinsky’s truthfulness or lies have become what role did President Clinton (or his advisors) play in telling her what to say, how to say it, and when to say it. When called to give an affidavit under oath, was she entirely truthful? And then, was she truthful when she said she lied? Such questions have been the basis for obsessive speculation for months and the one truth that does remain is the fact that the American people will never know the truth! Annotated bibliography lists 5 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.

  • Mental Health Counseling: Child Abuse And Neglect

    7 pages in length. Antisocial behavior is considered one of the many consequences adolescents and adults harbor from childhood abuse/neglect, as are issues of intimate bonding and repeating the harmful behavior inflicted upon the child. It has been noted how an individual reaches a certain breaking point during intervention when he or she admits to the hurt that has long existed, in addition to the humiliation and grief typically associated with child abuse/neglect. Analyzing theoretical perspectives and therapeutic approaches provides a significantly better understanding of what steps are required in order to help the abused/neglected child work through his damaged psyche. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Religions of Ancient Egypt

    This 8 page paper provides an overview of this issue. The communities of Ancient Egypt from the 1st to the 18th dynasties were highly defined by an emerging sense of public representations of religion. Prior to the 1st dynasty, approximately 4000 B. C., religion was not an imperative component of the public administration of communities, but this changed around 3050 BC, and resulted in the progression of established religious practices and religious ideals that were prevalent for the next 17 dynasties. Though substantial changes occurred over the span of the time between the 1st and 18th dynasties, the resulting views of religion relative to the progression of Egyptian society demonstrates the importance of the base of religion in the 1st dynasty. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Liberal Democracy of Japan

    8 pages in length. Determining whether or not Japan can be described as a liberal democracy requires the assessment of a number of areas in order to ascertain the extent to which this might be true. Indeed, Japan has come a long way toward the notion of liberal democracy; however, it can be argued that this progression has only succeeded in reaching halfway to the ultimate goal, with a considerable length still to go. Looking at various entities -- including political institutions and practices, participation of the public in the political system and protest movements, effects of the media, effects of the bureaucracy and local government, dominance of the Liberal Democratic Party, as well as the 1993 election results -- one is bound to gain a clearer perspective upon the issue of Japan's move toward liberal democracy. The writer discusses to what extent Japan can be considered a liberal democracy. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Numerous issues are discussed, such as the predominant philosophies guiding the last forty-plus years, the fact that marketing typically follows a utilitarian perspective (which is explained) and perhaps there is a need to use another perspective. Examples are included. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Enron and Ethics of the Media

    7 pages in length. The Enron debacle clearly illustrates how establishing and maintaining corporate ethics is the cornerstone to continued success, both on a personal and professional level.

The five primary elements of such nurturing include having a clear and concise forthrightness, which is substantiated by culture; appropriate and applicable conformity with regard to difficult situations; managerial involvement and awareness on ethics issues; a nurturing program that is wholeheartedly supported by top management; and staff involvement. These concepts, which are both interrelated and individual at the same time, represent a complete quest toward ethical decision-making. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

    20 pages in length. The natural course of aging takes its toll on both the body and mind; as much significant progress medical technology has made, there are still some aspects of human existence it cannot stop or reverse. Multimodal exercise has long been a highly recommended component of the geriatric health protocol as a method by which to tone muscles, strengthen bones stronger and keep all the bodily systems in good function. Why is it, therefore, that exercise is only just recently being associated with the delay onset of dementia when it has such dramatically positive impact upon the rest of the physiological makeup? Second only to the skin, the human brain is the largest organ in the body that responds to stimuli no differently than others, however, it is also vastly complex when compared to the liver or heart; because medical science still has a very long way to go before the mind's holistic function and capacity is known, new realizations of the mind/body connection will continue to be made, not the least of which includes the growing association between physical activity and staving off dementia. Bibliography lists 19 sources.

  • First Respondents and Handling Critical Incident Stress

    6 pages in length. Reaction to critical incidents, such as tragedies, deaths, serious injuries, hostage and/or threatening situations, require the human being to respond in a way that intensifies the inherent stress related to Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Those within the rescue field are prone to inordinate levels of stress over and above many other professions; as a result, extremely traumatic or overwhelming situations sometimes spawn a damaging psychological reaction called Critical Incident Stress. Those who are involved with events that are far more serious than others will attend Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) as a means by which to diffuse some of the internal emotional buildup caused by post-traumatic stress, but sometimes that is not enough to address the extent to which an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or firefighter is suffering.

    A 5 page research paper that discusses a case scenario and the ethical issues involved. Due to medical innovation and advancement, more patients are living longer with chronic diseases.

Therefore, this writer/tutor chose to focus this exploration of a nursing ethics situation on a case recounted by LaDuke (2004) that describes her feelings and decision-making process concerning palliative care for a patient whom LaDuke cared for during the 1990s. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Two Classical Era Ethical Theorists on Animal Experimentation

    6 pages in length. The ethical nature of animal experimentation has long been debated as to whether or not it stands as a necessary element for humanity. After all, the primary -- if not only -- reason animals are utilized in laboratory tests is to further the interests of mankind, often without the least bit of concern for the animals who forfeit their lives in exchange for medical, cosmetic and household product advancements. Classical ethics theorists Emile Durkheim and Immanual Kant may have had similar viewpoints on some issues, but when it came to concerns over the ethical fortitude of animal experimentation, the writer discusses how Durkheim would have befriended the animals' plight long before Kant would have, who adopted a utilitarian concept. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Relationship Between Patient and Doctor and the Process of Building Trust

    A 10 page proposal for a qualitative research work. There have been relatively limited efforts at defining and studying the relationship of trust between physician and patient that not only is desirable, but some believe is critical for attaining the best patient outcomes.

This paper proposes using focus group discussions to identify specific physician behaviors that contribute to building patient trust, using groups of diverse physical as well as ethnic makeup. Bibliography lists 11 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.

  • 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

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.

  • 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.

As the student did not provide details about this experience, the information is general, so that the student can adapt it when reporting in his/her own paper. Bibliography lists 15 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.

The program's theoretical base is a combination of planned behavior and the health-belief model in which the patient believes a problem exists and that treatment is effective. Outgrowth of the program will include greater patient education for better self-management of their diabetes. The paper includes sections addressing implementation and evaluation. Bibliography lists 22 sources.

  • Qualitative Collection of Data and Interviews

    A 10 page paper discussing the growing use of qualitative research methods in clinical settings, focusing on the value of the interview as a data collection tool. Qualitative research still is not accepted as valid by all the medical community, but the fact remains that valid, reliable qualitative research can give insights that cannot be achieved through quantitative approaches. The interview is a valuable qualitative data collection tool, but it must be used with care. There are many ways that bias can be introduced when using that tool, and both designers and interviewers need to ensure that they strive to keep that bias at bay. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Veterans Affairs Benefits Proposal Paper

    6 pages in length. The main thing on the minds of every soldier coming home from military conflict is to realign themselves with the lives they left behind. Work, friends, home life, familial relationships – all of these and more require a great measure of readjustment for veterans whose entire existence has centered upon war. Even those without any battle-related encumbrances - such as mental, physical or emotional injuries – still need help assimilating back into the society they left behind in order to protect. Veterans Affairs (VA) has been an instrumental force in providing much-needed education, home loans, pensions, medical care, life insurance and vocational rehabilitation for both the veteran and his/her family, however, as beneficial as VA has been in helping veterans piece their collective lives back together with such assistance, the system has become so overloaded that more and more veterans are going without benefits they are qualified to receive. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

The bibliography cites 10 sources.

  • 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.

  • Economic Indicators 2006

    A 9 page paper examining three forecasts for each of 5 economic indicators and then relating those findings to the medical industry. The bottom line in nursing is that (1) currently active, practicing nurses have a wealth of opportunity available to them; (2) the profession is attracting greater interest among would-be students who could help ease the shortage in the future; but (3) the ongoing shortage has been in effect for so long that there is a shortage of nursing educators; and (4) those who could help ease the shortage cannot gain the training necessary for licensing. The situation is different for physicians and other health care professionals, but the bottom line for all is that demand for and costs of health care will continue to increase in the future. Bibliography lists 17 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.
