Excelsior College Revisiting your Ethical Dilemma Discussion

Description

Part I: Revisiting your Ethical Dilemma

In your opinion.

  • Let’s revisit the example you shared in our first discussion about an ethical dilemma or situation that you’ve faced. Describe this example and present your reasoning for your response using the ethical principles and theories that we’ve learned in the course. How did you respond differently? How did you respond similarly?

My ethical dilemma I shared:

I had once experienced an ethical dilemma when I was watching a given movie. In the film, a patient went testing for HIV in Saint George hospital. The doctor who performed the test on the patient realized that the patient had been exposed to HIV. Instead of telling the patient the truth, the doctor gave negative results to the patient to protect him from the truth about his condition. The doctor did not adhere to the ethical principle of truthfulness. Even if the patient’s results were painful, it was his right to receive correct results. The doctor, from his perspective, was that the patient would be traumatized and commit suicide. This was an ethical dilemma for the doctor since he was trying to protect his patient, but in doing that he was violating the principle of truthfulness.

Another ethical dilemma that I saw in the movie was concerning a teenager who visited the hospital because of a certain problem she experienced in her genitals. The doctor found out that the girl had been infected with a sexually transmitted disease, which required immediate attention. Since the child was a minor, living under the roof of her parents, her mother wanted to know what was wrong. The doctor was faced with an ethical dilemma of whether to disclose the information to her mother or not. The ethical principle of confidentiality was supposed to be considered by the doctor. Doctors are not supposed to disclose information concerning the patients without their consent as stated by Kälvemark et al. (2004). The doctor had no option but to violate the principle since his best option was to reveal the information to her parents, which he thought was the right decision.

In the same movie, another patient had experienced a road accident, and his leg was severely injured by sharp metal. To reduce the spread of infection, the doctors decided that they should amputate the leg. The doctors talked to the patient about the process of amputation, but the patient declined. The doctors were faced with an ethical dilemma of whether to accept the patient’s decision or to amputate the leg since the infection was going to spread on the whole body and kill the patient. The ethical principle of Autonomy had to be adhered to by the doctors. The doctors had to respect the patient’s decision even though it was a wrong decision, which could lead to his death.

The ethical dilemma faced in Terry Schiavo’s case was whether to let her die or live by removing the feeding tube. Terry Schiavo will be to remove the feeding tube, but this was faced with different obstructions. It was difficult for her family to accept the decisions since, in doing so, she was going to pass on. It was also not fair not to respect the choice of Terry Schiavo hence an ethical dilemma in the situation.

The stakeholders in this topic were one her family who wanted Terry Schiavo to live. Her husband was also another stakeholder. He wanted the best for his wife, and he followed her will by removing the feeding tube. The community at large also wanted Terry Schiavo to live. They did not accept the decision to remove the feeding tube. Courts were also major stakeholders who carried proceedings on the case. Terry Schiavo’s case was had 20 times in courts, which makes the courts a significant participant. The national government was also involved in the matter. Congress even had a voting session to decide the fate of Terry’s case. The media was also involved in the case. The media ensured that all people across the country were aware of the event that was affecting Terry. The media led people to rally to protect Terry so that she might live.

The ethical principle of Justice applies in Terry’s case. This principle entails fairness and equality to all as stated by Gelling (1999). Terry was equal to any other human being, and it was her right to live like any other person. Hence the feeding tube was not removed because she also had a right to live despite her condition. Another ethical principle is the principle of Autonomy. Autonomy is whereby an individual is allowed to make his or her own decisions as stated by Scott (2017). From the case, Terry’s decision to remove the feeding tube was adhered to. Even though it was returned back, we see that at long last, it was removed according to her wishes.

My recommendation towards the case would be to allow the will of Terry to pass. All those cases were irrelevant since Terry had made up her decision. Yes, my response differs from the outcomes in the case since the parents were in denial, but I believe Terry had suffered a lot and wanted to be at peace. So the best option was to allow the principle of Autonomy to take place so that she might rest in peace.)

Part II: Analysis of an Ethical Issue

Glendale Community College Week 4 Price and Welfare Discussion Questions

Description

Discussion Questions:

  1. Joeseph Gallo, the founder of the famous wine company that bears his name, said that when he first started selling wine right after Prohibition (laws outlawing the sale of alcohol), he poured two glasses of wine from the same bottle and put a price of 10 cents a bottle on one and 5 cents a bottle on the other. He let people test both and asked them which they wanted. Most wanted the 10-cent bottle, even though they were the same wine. 
    • What does this tell us about people?
    • Can you think of other areas where that may be the case?
    • What does this suggest about pricing?
  2. Economic experiments have found that individuals prefer an outcome where no one is made better off to an outcome where the welfare of only some is improved if that improvement in welfare is unequally distributed. Why do you think this is so?

Discussion & Peer Review Policy:

You are required to post one “substantive” posting addressing the course material. By “substantive,” I mean not merely providing a brief “yes, I agree” or “no, I do not agree” posting, but discussing the issues in some depth, providing your own thoughts or questions on the matter. Ideally, I’d like you to connect and integrate the discussion prompt to the course lectures, class discussions, and course textbook (whenever possible). The more evidence that shows you are doing the readings and engaging with them, the better. In your posting, avoid making unsubstantiated assertions and claims. Support your point with evidence from the textbook or other websites (include citations), whenever possible. Some possible ideas to write about include, describing any connections between the readings or course material, expanding on a concept or idea that struck you in the course material, or offering another explanation or illustrative example. (minimum of 250 words)

  • You are also required to do two peer reviews. In other words, you must reply to two student posts. You will be randomly assigned your peer reviews. Additionally, I expect you to read the posting of your colleagues to further the discussion (and avoid repeating what others have posted). Simply saying “I agree, great point, etc” is not a sufficient peer review. Similar to your initial post, you must discuss your peer’s argument with detailed evidence from the textbook or other websites (include citations). If someone posted to you and the discussion can be further elaborated on, I expect you to keep the dialogue flowing! (minimum of 100 words)

Cumberlands University Complex Systems and Visual Decision Support Discussion

Question Description

I need an explanation for this Economics question to help me study.

Complex Systems and Visual Decision Support

Chapter 13 discussed managing complex systems and chapter 15 introduced the advantages of visual decision support. Discuss how you would combine the two concepts to create visualizations for an ABM-Based Gaming simulation for policy making. First, describe what specific policy you’re trying to create. Let’s stick with the SmartCity scenario. Describe a specific policy (that you haven’t used before), and how you plan to use ABM-Based Gaming to build a model for simulate the effects of the policy. Then, describe what type of visualization technique you’ll use to make the model more accessible. Use figure 15.9 and describe what data a new column for your policy would contain.

Defense Mechanisms from Psychodynamic Analysis Discussion

Description

Please review the attached defense mechanism case vignette. Identify and list the defense mechanisms that you saw in the vignette.

This is the material

Ann is a 49-year-old, twice divorced, heterosexual female who is seeking therapy to address relationship difficulties. She has two teenage daughters from her first marriage and is currently working as an accountant for a marketing firm. In her initial therapy session, she is open and engages easily with you as the therapist. When talking about her divorces, she expresses regrets that her daughters grew up in a broken home and begins to talk about her own sadness when she tells a quick joke about her first marriage and switches topic. She describes herself as easygoing and lighthearted and indicates that she often tells jokes to lighten the mood. When you do a biopsychosocial history, Ann reports that she had a happy childhood without any negative or traumatic incidences. However, when she provided prior clinical records, you read that a child abuse report and several police reports were filed when she was about 8 years old due to domestic violence in the home. In subsequent sessions, Ann begins to share that she is unhappy at work. In particular, she shares that she has a new boss who is demanding and inflexible. Ann is working longer hours without compensation but is reluctant to express her frustrations to her boss for fear of losing her job. She reports that at home her daughters tell her that she is more irritable and cranky, and frequently yells at them even if they have not done anything wrong. After about three months of treatment, Ann informs you that her ex-husband is getting married to a woman whom she knows. Ann doesn’t like this woman and suspects that in part she and her ex-husband separated because he was having an affair with this woman. She states that she wishes them both well and sent an expensive gift to the couple when she learned of the engagement. Because of continued communication problems and tensions with her daughters, you get Ann’s consent to have a family therapy session. During this session Ann’s oldest daughter expresses concern about her mother’s drinking, The daughter tells you that Ann recently got a DUI and is calling in to work often after nights of heavy drinking. When you ask Ann about the drinking she tells you that it is not a problem and that the daughter is exaggerating and a worrier.
