Ethical dilemmas are those where there is neither an easy answer nor a decision that is absolutely the right one.
the right one. Healthcare professionals must deal with these challenges based on their training and knowledge of ethical principles and decision making. Choose an ethical dilemma from the list below and answer the questions that follow. Use your knowledge and understanding from what you have already learned from Unit 1 and 2 lessons and the textbook reading assignments.
Genetic testing and home test kits
Artificial intelligence and clinical decision making
Organ transplantation and artificial organs
Note: If you would like to choose a dilemma other than one on the list, please consult with your instructor and obtain permission.
Describe the issue and why and how it poses an ethical dilemma for healthcare providers and healthcare organizations?
What ethical principle(s) would be applicable to the dilemma?
Describe the ethical decision-making steps used to come to an ethical decision? With whom would a healthcare professional consult in coming to a decision?
How are your personal values challenged? What would be a personal bias or conflict of interest in resolving this dilemma
2.students are expected to research and compose a paper based on the application of concepts and theories examined in class.
ies examined in class. This paper is not a literature review, though a literature review is part of your work. As this course takes place in a compressed timeline, I provided some suggestions for research topics. Feel free to use one of these as a springboard or propose your own.
At the end of the second week of class, students submit a three-page research paper prospectus. A research prospectus is a preliminary plan for conducting a study. This is not a detailed and technical research proposal, but rather, an analysis of the issues likely confronted in such a study. In essence, it is a preliminary proposal of work.
Research Paper Prospectus Elements
To complete the Research Paper Prospectus, consider the following elements. While the prospectus is limited to three pages of body content, remember, students must cover each of these areas as relevant to the plan for research:
Research Problem. What is the research problem? A problem is a situation when left untreated, produces a negative consequence for a group, an institution, or a(n) individual(s). What makes it a problem? For whom? Who says so?
Assumptions. On what assumptions is the work based? Which assumptions are verifiable in literature? Which assumptions are speculative?
Theoretical Issues. What theoretical issues arise from the study? For example, "theoretically," how is the problem and suspected results explained to other scholars? Is there a behavior view? A social systems view? Are there other theoretical orientations to consider in the study's design?
Literature Review. What, in general, does the literature say about the topic? While more development is expected for the final paper, a review of major theories, research, and writers in the field is needed.
Research Questions. Based on the problem, what are the research questions to be answered? How and why will answering the questions contribute to solving the research problem? Remember....a research question can only be answered with empirical data or information.
General Research Plan. In general, what research is necessary to answer the research question. What kind of data is needed? Specify the type, such as surveys, observations, or interviews. Who is to be studied and why? How is the data reduced and made sense of? How is the quality of the data assured?
Anticipated Difficulties and Pitfalls. What kind of difficulties and pitfalls are expected in a study of this nature? What can be done to prevent them or minimize their effects?
Anticipated Benefits. Who will benefit from the fact this research is undertaken? How? Why? Who might be disturbed by this proposed study? How? Why?
Paper Format Requirements
The Research Paper Prospectus is presented in standard APA 7 format, with a cover page, running head, body, and references list. The cover page and references do not count toward the three-page requirement. The body uses headers and in-text citations in the manner prescribed by APA. Students should include any references they know at the time they submit the prospectus, though it is expected the references may change or increase in number. Full and complete adherence to APA is required.
As APA format is the rule, remember the formatting rules shown on the Sample Paper (Links to an external site.):
Times New Roman, 12pt
1" margins on all sides
Double spaced, with extra line spaces removed (see below)
Page numbers in the upper right
Two spaces after concluding punctuation
150-250 word abstract with keywords
APA-style in-text citations and quote format. Use the Purdue OWL in-text citation information (Links to an external site.)to help you.
Alphabetical (by author) reference page with correct reference format. DO NOT trust the reference generator in your word processing program. It is WRONG! Use the Purdue OWL references information (Links to an external site.)to correctly structure references and do so manually.
3.Answer all of the following questions as fully and succinctly as possible. YOUR RESPONSES SHOULD BE BASED ON POSTED NOTES
BASED ON POSTED NOTES AND CLASS LECTURE ONLY. IF YOU USE/CITE OTHER SOURCES, POINTS WILL BE DEDUCTED. Most responses should be at least four sentences.
1. Summarize the "Solitary Confinement" video. After watching this video, do you believe that this form of punishment is appropriate and/or effective in rehabilitating criminals?
2. Based on class lecture/notes, summarize Ross Chambers theory regarding “unexamined" individuals in society.
3. How are gender, race and aging interrelated?
4. What are the strengths and drawbacks of capitalism? What are the strengths and drawbacks of socialism? How are politics and economics interrelated?
5. Summarize any section of the class lecture/notes that resonated most with you (and that you were not asked about on any formal assessment such as the mid-term examination or other assignment).

In the aftermath of the Civil War, the political, social, and economic status of freedmen became a hotly debated topic, particularly concerning the questions of citizenship and voting. "Am I a man? If I am such, I claim the rights of a man," Henry McNeal Turner thundered to the Georgia State Legislature in 1868 (Sheets, 419). The ratification of the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments (1868, 1870) defined these issues from a Constitutional standpoint, but the actual experiences of African American people in the wake of freedom were far more complicated.
Based on these readings, how did Americans interpret the implications of emancipation in different ways? How was freedom celebrated by some? How was it tied directly to citizenship and voting rights for some? And, for others, how was the freedom of blacks something to be restricted (and even feared)?
A minimum of one well-developed paragraph is required. Please cite specific examples from the readings.
5.I need answers on 2 questions based on the text of Waltz, Susan. "Reclaiming and Rebuilding the History of the
ory of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights." Third World Quarterly 23, no. 3 (2002): 437-48. (in the file attached) This are the questions:
Question 1 Waltz discusses four political myths about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and demonstrates they are misleading. What is her main argument? In your answer identify the hypothesis that Waltz targets.
Question 2 Does Waltz discredit this hypothesis or not? Keep in mind that a hypothesis aims to explain something.
8.Statistics questions help please! I have three questions
High levels of cholesterol in the blood are linked to a higher risk
d are linked to a higher risk of developing coronary heart diseases. A researcher is investigating two types of interventions (e.g. A, B) to reduce the cholesterol level. Study participants were randomized to receive either intervention A or B. Some subjects dropped from the study due to reasons not related to the interventions. In order to determine which intervention was more effective, the mean cholesterol concentrations were compared between the two groups at the end of the study. The total cholesterol levels for the patients undergoing the intervention A were: 240, 238, 245, 256, 289, 190, 189, 205, 200, 214, 237, 247, 254, 209, 211, 200 mg/dl. The total cholesterol levels for the patients undergoing the intervention B were: 213, 188, 199, 247, 248, 239, 256, 244, 206, 223, 241, 261, 226, and 231 mg/dl.
Which intervention was more effective? Consider alpha=0.05.
Intervention B was more effective.
Intervention A was more effective.
Impossible to tell based on the information provided.
The two interventions were not statistically significant different.
