In this essay, the discussion is centered on the structural dimensions—ethical influences, parameters in decision-making, and internal provocations—relating the issues of whether deception among clinicians can be regarded as plausibly sound. These matters are the motivation that plays a role in how the actuality of care is being communicated. Since the provider-patient relationship is mainly constructed by way of trust and confidence, the concept relating deceptions during the course of care takes a crucial part. In view of the fact that internal influences affect the predisposition towards the issues of deception, whether it is justifiable or necessary for the wellbeing of the patient, this concern will be viewed more clearly through the lens of biblical proportions and overall understanding of the value of human life. Truth telling in healthcare setting is a subject of intense debate. The physicians, nurses, and the rest of decision makers involve within the healthcare profession have an extensive familiarity, high level of proficiency and masterful capability in dealing with medical situations. However, ethically related conflicts many times arise regarding the deception or withholding medical information to avoid the complexities that may affect patient care strategies. These matters, unavoidably, are often times the likely reason that may limit the capacity of how the most appropriate course of medical procedures—imperative set of treatment actions that are vital to patients’ health—can be provided. The analysis of the limits of control ascends more coherently when the providers deal with scenarios where deceiving can be justifiable or not (Crow, Lou, & Steed, 2000). Stirrat (2013) argued that deception could be justified when the overall…...

Midmacroeconomic Environment Midterm Essay

...MIDTERM EXAM 1) Economics uses the concept of opportunity costs. Apply the concept to decisions to hire a few super high rank executives against hiring a group of young professionals, but less costly. What are things at stake in your considering the two options? What will you lose by taking one decision or the other? “An opportunity cost is the evaluation placed on the most highly valued of the rejected alternatives or opportunities or the loss of other alternatives when one alternative is chosen.” (P. 595) When we have to choose between hiring a group of young professionals over a few high rank executives (or viceversa), examining opportunity cost is a crucial strategy to knowledgeably decide what you are getting and what you are sacrificing instead. If we were to choose the group of young professionals, the opportunity cost for not choosing the high rank executive group would be losing out on the vast experience that these executives bring to the table. Moreover, this experience provides them with a lot of knowledge they can apply into their day-to-day decision-making and how they communicate and spread it throughout the entire organization. However, the above average problem analysis would be the highest opportunity cost incurred; particularly if the interested firm is participating in a complex market or experiencing a complex current situation. On the other side, if we were to choose the high rank executives over the group of young......

...Rashid Whittaker Mr. Chaemsaithong English 1302 2/21/10 Midterm Essay In option 1 the two conversations portray different styles of indirect complaints that involves a third party. While looking similar, essentially the politeness strategies implemented in this are not all the same, seeing as how the level of familiarity between the two parties is different. The party discussing the hotel give the impression of two strangers having a conversation, while those discussing the airport security guard seem to be acquainted with each other. I will be investigating the politeness strategies used in these two conversations, their differences and their similarities. As I stated above this exchange seems to be conducted between two strangers seeing as how the person complaining is using positive politeness in order to feel like he is not the only one who felt appalled by the bugs and living conditions inside of the hotel. Victor is constantly stating his opinions on things and exclaiming that he can’t believe he’s in London. This indicates that Victor is hoping that Luda will agree with his opinions. He does this so that he can feel more comfortable with his rant about the hotel and to feel as if he isn’t alone in this conversation. Victor is also constantly talking familiarly with Luda going so far as to use grammatically incorrect English when conversing. At one point Victor interrupts Luda in the middle of her saying something. This shows that Victor is openly......

...Midterm Exam Lisa Lippincott Excelsior College The Kansas City Gun Experiment in 1992 - 1993 used intensive police patrols directed to an 80-block hotspot area where the homicide rate was 20 times the national average. It represented a unique approach to crime prevention through preventive patrol. Question 1 Is this approach different from traditional patrol? If so how? If not, how is it similar? What did patrol officers in this experiment do that was different from what basic patrol officers do? What was the relationship between the officers in this experiment and other patrol officers? The Kansas City Gun Experiment was a police patrol project that aimed at reducing gun violence, drive-by shootings, and homicides. The purpose of the experiment was to focus on gun crime “hot spots” through problem-solving policing and directed patrol in high-crime areas. The overall goal was to prove that this style of policing would reduce crime by removing guns from the streets and deterrence through aggressive enforcement (Walker & Katz, 2006, p 295) Routine traditional patrol maintained in five beats, which included marked police cars, rapid response to calls, arrests and follow-up investigations. The final five beats involved in the experiment used a proactive patrol approach, increasing patrol to twice the norm. The extra officers worked from 7:00 pm to 1:00 am, seven days/week during the hours when the most gun-related crimes occur. Police officers assigned to the......

...Midterm Essay Paul Karsten HIUS 380 April 13, 2015 Strategies and Tactics Utilized in World War II By the middle of the 1900’s, America was again involved with wars ravaging a majority of the world. The scale of the battlefield would cause the United States to face enemies with completely different combat styles, technologies, and motivations to go to war. Throughout the late 1800’s and early 1900’s the United States would be tested repeatedly. The experiences learned in the Spanish-American War and World War I would changes the way the United States would conduct combat operations. The complacency of the United States in its victories would lead to a lack of preparation for the tenacity and intensity that would be unleashed against this country by her would be enemies. Strategies and tactics of combat were rapidly evolving during the post-World War I period as new technologies and motivations to go to war evolved. The German government, led by Adolph Hitler began to re-arm itself, in direct opposition to the Treaty of Versailles, in order to take back the territory it lost to Poland (American History 2008). The immediate response of Europe was one of capitulation and promise that the Germans would not pursue additional acts of aggression. Within six months the German war machine was marching on Czechoslovakia. On September 3, 1939, the countries of France and England formally declared war on Germany.

...MIDTERM ESSAY CHARLIE MITCHELL LIBERTY UNIVERSITY “For if they that are of the law are heirs, faith is made of none effect: for the law worketh wrath, but where there is no law; neither is there transgression” (Romans 4:14-15 ASV). Introduction: It is often noted, “There’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end” (Adam Scott, Cartoonist-Dilbert, Quote, 4144). Such is the case in point of World War II. The strategy of two world powers (Germany and Japan) willed their dominance on other countries, will be greatly tested over the course of time in the 1940’s. “Life has its ups and downs, for many people it is an ongoing battle: a conflict of values, a battle of beliefs, a struggle of wills, and a war of nerves. God never promise to go with us through every conflict” (Hindson, Ed (2003), Courageous Faith: Life Lessons From Old Testament Heroes, pg. 77). (A) Japan Man and his greed to possess material things he deems of importance, lead to Japan’s downfall. Japan’s Emperor Hirohito (posthumously known as Emperor Showa, 1926-1989), principles objective leading up to the despicable assault on the United States were: (1) To develop dominance, and become the leading country of a so-called, “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity sphere (August, 1940).
