Laws Governing Your Future Profession


LawsGoverning Your Future Profession


  1. Why doctor?

Thehealthcare situation in the market is currently relatively expensiveand leading to a point where only money can accord an individual thebest health facilities and care. Despite the efforts of the federalgovernment to provide cheap and affordable healthcare plans throughthe Obamacare act, it has done little to change a situation that hasentrenched deep into the depths of the societal fabric to become astatus quo. In my opinion, the market is headed towards hopelessnessand despair when it comes to according everyone affordable if notfree healthcare services and I like to believe that I will helpeffect the necessary changes in health care as a doctor.

2.List the rational for a profession’s creating a code of ethics.

Acode of ethics is an important piece of document for any healthprofession in a remarkable number of ways. It is important in barringand preventing professionals from breaching the set ethics of theirgiven professions, such as a medical practitioner (Pera 2010). Perafurther explains that should anyone in any profession violate thestipulated ethics, then dire consequences follow within the hospitaladministration (2010). Furthermore, the rationality of developing acode of ethics is clear during the decision-making process.Rationalism during the development stages tends to ease the entireprocess by leveling down the considerations and ambiguity ofindividual points of view.

3.Explain why it is forbidden to engage in sexual relations betweenpatient and health care provider.

Sexualrelation between a health care provider and the patient is a totalbreach of the ethic codes of medical practitioners that health careproviders ought to follow. Therefore, when a medical health careprovider engages himself or herself in a sexual relation with apatient, they violate the ethic code of conduct (Edge 2010). Sexualrelations lead to an enhanced intimacy between people. Consequently,if a health care provider engages in sex with a patient, they tend tohave a strong attachment. In turn, the sense of strong attachment toone patient leads to the negligence of other patients.

4.Explain the importance of having a scope of practice

Ascope of practice in the medical field ensures that only qualifiedmedical practitioners treat patients (Buppert 2010). Best care,practice, and services will only come by if the people with ampletraining and education practice in the vast medical field. Ruppertexplains that the presence of a governing body is one of the mainreasons for having a scope of practice (2010). A governing body isimportant in overseeing the professionalism and skill, therefore,allowing only genuine practitioners to work in that particular field.The predominant importance of having a scope of practice tricklesdown to the institutions. A scope of practice ensures that aninstitution, such as a hospital, only take in the right and qualifiedindividuals for the job.

5.Explain the ethical obligation that we have toward impairedcolleges.

Oneof the ethical obligations that we have toward impaired college ismaintaining a free impairment personal health. Refraining frompersonal impairment health will help in avoiding taking part inprofessional activities (Snyder 2010). Another ethical obligationthat we have toward impaired colleges is seeking treatment as soon aspossible should any impairment occur. Intervening and reportingimpairment to the necessary authorities should a college refrain fromseeking the assistance of professionals is also another ethicalobligation. Another ethical obligation that we have toward impairedcolleges is to offer support to the executives and peers of colleges.

6.Difference between traditional Canadian Medicine and AlternativeArabic Medicine

Anymedical practice put forward as having the healing the healingeffects of medicine is alternative medicine. Also, alternativemedicine definition has its solidification further from the fact thatthere are no gathered scientific evidence to proof the healing effectof that particular medical practice. Alternative medicine has existedin the society since time immemorial with the different ethnic andcultural traditions from around the world having their alternativemedicine practices. The people of the different ethnic and culturalbackgrounds were firm and staunch believers and adherents of theirvarious alternative medicine practices. Most often than not thealternative medicine, practices were not part of the conventionallyscientific based healthcare systems. Alternative medicine has itsbasis predominantly on religious facts and beliefs and superstitionon other instances.

Medicaldiagnoses based on alternative medicine are never included in thevarious medical degrees awarded by the different medical schools.During the treatment process in alternative medicine, alternativetherapies were part of the process. The alternative therapies lackedthe scientific proficiency and validation, thus rendering theeffectiveness neither proven nor unproven. Despite the existencemodern or the contemporary medical practices, people from differentcountries still, use the alternative medical methods (Johnston 2010).Consequently, different countries and counties have different modesand methods of controlling and regulating the practice of alternativemedicine. However, for a considerable number of years, the scientificcommunity has put alternative medical practices under fiercecriticism for their misleading statements based on quackery and poorscientific methodology. Johnston (2010) explains that despite thecriticism, the practice of alternative medicine has persisted andstood the test of time. The Arabic and Canadian alternativemedication are among the oldest in the world.

TheArabic alternative medicine is among the world’s oldest forms oftraditional medicine that are still in use in the contemporary world.Johnston (2010) illustrates that the Arabic alternative medicationfirst developed during the Islamic Golden Age, Greco-Islamic.Consequently, the alternative has the predominance of its influencefrom the Islamic culture. Subsequently, the alternative medication ofthe Arabs is synonymous with the medieval Islamic world. During thebeginning of the beginning of the alternative medieval Islamic andArabic world, the adherents of the religion and the culturerespectively, believed that Allah cured all the ailments of man.However, with the progression of time, the Arabs began to formulateand utilize a medication and treatment system solely based onscientific facts (Johnston 2010). Consequently, the Arabicalternative medicine began to revolve around the emphasis andimportance of health sciences within the society.

Themedication and treatment of the Canadian alternative medication usedthe concept of pre-scientific culture and superstition, a similarmethodology to the humoral theory (Johnston 2010). Unlike the Arabicalternative medication, the Canadian alternative medication did nothave any religious attachments. Consequently, the Canadianalternative theory was heavily dependent on psychological andhistological cultural practices of the Canadian people. The Canadianalternative medication placed little or no emphasis on the anatomicalstructures of the human genome, but rather the main concern was theidentification of the functional entities. The functional entitiesentailed the regulation of processes such as breathing, aging andbreathing. Johnston (2010) explains that the Canadian doctrineperceived the interaction of the functional entities and the outsideworld as harmonious. The Canadian alternative medication perceiveddiseases as a disharmonious interaction between the functionalentities and the outside world.

The Canadian alternative medication diagnosis aims to look at thetraces of the symptoms to the different patterns of the underlyingdisharmony with the outside world. The diagnosis of the symptoms isdeterminable through the measurement of pulse, tongue inspection,skin and eye observation. Additionally, the physicians also observedthe sleeping and eating habits of a sick individual as well as manyother things. Consequently, the Canadian alternative medication useddifferent concepts beliefs and theories to rationalize the causediseases (Zhang and Ken, 29). For instance, the practitioners of thealternative Canadian medication were the adherents of the yin andyang symbol for balance. The Canadian alternative medicationstipulated that for good health to exist there has to exist a balancebetween Yin and Yang. The Canadian alternative medication heavilyrelied on the therapeutic process more than it did on herbs duringthe treatment process.

Thoughthe two cultural, medical practices differed in some ways, theyformed the basis of the contemporary medical practices. Contemporarymedical practices, as it is taught in medical schools, have heavilyborrowed from the both the Arabic alternative medication and theCanadian alternative medication. The simple and basic concepts of thetwo medical practices were very much helpful in the formulation ofthe basic concepts of the contemporary medicine. However, thepractices lacked any scientific proof and backing, for so long thepractices seemed to work. The medications processes were helpful andaided in the treatment of diseases and upholding of a healthy and awell functioning society. However, some of the procedural processthat involved the different therapeutic processes was harmful andextremely dangerous to the patients. In some instances, the patientswould succumb to the excruciating pain brought about by thetherapeutic process. The medical practices were imperative inpioneering the fundamental concepts of contemporary medicine.

7.Write a list of measures that might be useful to provide forArabic patients.

Thecontemporary approach of the Arabic faith to modern medicine andhealth care is solely dependent on what the Quran stipulates. TheQuran is clear and categorical in stating that God never created anyhuman disorder without the cure. Subsequently, Muslims believe thatall the diseases are curable, and it is for that matter the list foran Arabic patient should contain a hope for the cure of any disease.Personal hygiene and proper dietary methods should appear on the listfor an Arabic patient. UAE strongly believes that preventativemeasures are paramount in preventing contracting diseases.

8.Differentiate the perspective and belief system regarding abortionbetween Hindu, Traditional Canadian Medicine, and Muslim.

Theancient Canadian medicine does not in any way advocate for abortion.However, the traditional Canadian medicine is clear on the instancesat which the abortion should take place. For example, an ancientCanadian practice stipulates that should the pregnancy endanger thelife of a mother, then abortion is necessary (Johnston 2010).Surprisingly enough, the adherents of the ancient Canadian medicinebelieve that the habitual abortion helps to improve the health of thenext fetus. Hindu, on the other hand, determines the validity ofcarrying out abortion depending on the person who will have the leastharm from the implications of the actions. Johnston illustrates thatin similitude to the traditional Canadian medicine, Hindu will onlycarry out an abortion if the life of a mother is in danger (2010).The religious belief stipulates that abortion before the fourth monthof pregnancy is totally okay (Sheikh 2010). It is after the fourthmonth of pregnancy that abortion to the Arabic faith becomesimpermissible because, during the fourth stage of fetal development,the fetus becomes a living soul.

9.Differentiate the perspective and belief system regarding holistictreatment between Hindu, Traditional Canadian Medicine, and Muslim?

Theview and belief concerning and relating to the approach in holistictreatment in Hindu religion lie in one of the Hindu religious books,Atharvaveda. The book contains close to two hundred holistictreatment for various diseases from which the entire concept of theHindu medicine, Ayurveda supposedly emanated and developed to what isit is done. Johnston demonstrated that the perspective and belief ofholistic treatment in Hindu tradition is an individual’s commitmentand determination to attaining better health (2010). Holistictreatment in the Hindu medicine is attainable through yoga, exercise,and meditation (Johnston 2010). The three practices aim in serving asa holistic treatment method in the prevention of illnesses from thebody, mind, and spirit.

TraditionalCanadian medicine on the hand has an entirely different approach inits perspective and belief in holistic treatment compared toAyurveda. Johnston explained that the traditional Canadian medicinevastly uses the perspective herbal medicine in its approach toholistic treatment (2010). Moreover, the traditional Canadianmedicine firmly entrenches its beliefs in body and mind practiceslike tai chi and acupuncture as a preventative measure in the entireholistic treatment approach (Johnston 2010). The perspectives andbeliefs of the whole concept of holistic treatment in the traditionalCanadian medicine have its roots in Taoism, an ancient philosophythat has been in existence for more than 2500 years.

TheMuslims beliefs and perspectives of the entire concept and ideologyof holistic treatment are entirely dissimilar to the perspectives andbeliefs of the Ayurveda and the traditional Canadian medicine. Forone, the Muslims believe the proper diet during treatment is anessential factor towards an individual’s speedy recovery. Duringtreatment, an individual has to follow strict dietary precautions andprescriptions according to the religion, and are not to take anythingwith pork byproducts (Sheikh 2010). Secondly and most importantbelief in Holistic treatment in the Arabic faith is that Allah is thegiver of good health. The Muslims have prayers especially for anailing individual that is in the treatment process.
