How physician executives and clinicians perceive ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals. (1/655)

OBJECTIVES: To compare the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding ethical issues in Saudi Arabian hospitals and the attributes that might lead to the existence of these ethical issues. DESIGN: Self-completion questionnaire administered from February to July 1997. SETTING: Different health regions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PARTICIPANTS: Random sample of 457 physicians (317 clinicians and 140 physician executives) from several hospitals in various regions across the kingdom. RESULTS: There were statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians regarding the existence of various ethical issues in their hospitals. The vast majority of physician executives did not perceive that seven of the eight issues addressed by the study were ethical concerns in their hospitals. However, the majority of the clinicians perceived that six of the same eight issues were ethical considerations in their hospitals. Statistically significant differences in the perceptions of physician executives and clinicians were observed in only three out of eight attributes that might possibly lead to the existence of ethical issues. The most significant attribute that was perceived to result in ethical issues was that of hospitals having a multinational staff. CONCLUSION: The study calls for the formulation of a code of ethics that will address specifically the physicians who work in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As a more immediate initiative, it is recommended that seminars and workshops be conducted to provide physicians with an opportunity to discuss the ethical dilemmas they face in their medical practice.  (+info)

Can we learn from eugenics? (2/655)

Eugenics casts a long shadow over contemporary genetics. Any measure, whether in clinical genetics or biotechnology, which is suspected of eugenic intent is likely to be opposed on that ground. Yet there is little consensus on what this word signifies, and often only a remote connection to the very complex set of social movements which took that name. After a brief historical summary of eugenics, this essay attempts to locate any wrongs inherent in eugenic doctrines. Four candidates are examined and rejected. The moral challenge posed by eugenics for genetics in our own time, I argue, is to achieve social justice.  (+info)

Indigenous peoples and the morality of the Human Genome Diversity Project. (3/655)

In addition to the aim of mapping and sequencing one human's genome, the Human Genome Project also intends to characterise the genetic diversity of the world's peoples. The Human Genome Diversity Project raises political, economic and ethical issues. These intersect clearly when the genomes under study are those of indigenous peoples who are already subject to serious economic, legal and/or social disadvantage and discrimination. The fact that some individuals associated with the project have made dismissive comments about indigenous peoples has confused rather than illuminated the deeper issues involved, as well as causing much antagonism among indigenous peoples. There are more serious ethical issues raised by the project for all geneticists, including those who are sympathetic to the problems of indigenous peoples. With particular attention to the history and attitudes of Australian indigenous peoples, we argue that the Human Genome Diversity Project can only proceed if those who further its objectives simultaneously: respect the cultural beliefs of indigenous peoples; publicly support the efforts of indigenous peoples to achieve respect and equality; express respect by a rigorous understanding of the meaning of equitable negotiation of consent, and ensure that both immediate and long term economic benefits from the research flow back to the groups taking part.  (+info)

Protective truthfulness: the Chinese way of safeguarding patients in informed treatment decisions. (4/655)

The first part of this paper examines the practice of informed treatment decisions in the protective medical system in China today. The second part examines how health care professionals in China perceive and carry out their responsibilities when relaying information to vulnerable patients, based on the findings of an empirical study that I had undertaken to examine the moral experience of nurses in practice situations. In the Chinese medical ethics tradition, refinement [jing] in skills and sincerity [cheng] in relating to patients are two cardinal virtues that health care professionals are required to possess. This notion of absolute sincerity carries a strong sense of parental protectiveness. The empirical findings reveal that most nurses are ambivalent about telling the truth to patients. Truth-telling would become an insincere act if a patient were to lose hope and confidence in life after learning of his or her disease. In this system of protective medical care, it is arguable as to whose interests are being protected: the patient, the family or the hospital. I would suggest that the interests of the hospital and the family members who legitimately represent the patient's interests are being honoured, but at the expense of the patient's right to know.  (+info)

Research, ethics and conflicts of interest. (5/655)

In this paper, I have tried to develop a critique of committee procedures and conflict of interest within research advisory committees and ethical review committees (ERCs). There are specific features of conflict of interest in medical research. Scientists, communities and the subjects of research all have legitimate stakeholdings. The interests of medical scientists are particularly complex, since they are justified by the moral and physical welfare of their research subjects, while the reputations and incomes of scientists depend on the success of their science. Tensions of this kind must at times produce conflict of interest. It is important to recognise that conflicts of interest may unwittingly lead to manipulation of research subjects and their lay representatives on research committees. It is equally important to recognise distinctions between the legal and moral aspects of conflict of interest. Some practical suggestions are made which may go some way towards resolving these difficulties. They indicate what might be needed to ensure the validity of ethical discourse, and to reduce the risks associated with conflict of interest.  (+info)

Defending diversity: affirmative action and medical education. (6/655)

Affirmative action programs of all types are under attack legally and politically. Although medical schools have not been specifically targeted, their affirmative action programs, like others in higher education, are potentially in danger. This article examines the current legal status of affirmative action in medical education and concludes that a refurbished defense of such programs is essential if they are to survive impending judicial and political scrutiny. An analysis of existing case law and available evidence suggests that a carefully reinvigorated diversity argument is the tactic most likely to pass constitutional muster, as well as the justification most likely to blunt growing public and political opposition to admissions policies that take race and ethnicity into consideration.  (+info)

Family consent, communication, and advance directives for cancer disclosure: a Japanese case and discussion. (7/655)

The dilemma of whether and how to disclose a diagnosis of cancer or of any other terminal illness continues to be a subject of worldwide interest. We present the case of a 62-year-old Japanese woman afflicted with advanced gall bladder cancer who had previously expressed a preference not to be told a diagnosis of cancer. The treating physician revealed the diagnosis to the family first, and then told the patient: "You don't have any cancer yet, but if we don't treat you, it will progress to a cancer". In our analysis, we examine the role of family consent, communication patterns (including ambiguous disclosure), and advance directives for cancer disclosure in Japan. Finally, we explore the implications for Edmund Pellegrino's proposal of "something close to autonomy" as a universal good.  (+info)

Interpersonal processes of care in diverse populations. (8/655)

Persons of lower socioeconomic status and members of racial and ethnic minority groups experience poorer health and increased health risk factors. A framework of interpersonal processes of care specifies distinct components and incorporates the perspective of diverse racial and ethnic or socioeconomic groups. Its dimensions, each with several domains, are communication (general clarity, elicitation of and responsiveness to patient concerns, explanations, empowerment), decision making (responsiveness to patient preferences, consideration of ability and desire to comply), and interpersonal style (friendliness, respectfulness, discrimination, cultural sensitivity, support). All the domains, except cultural sensitivity, were validated through a survey of 603 ethnically diverse, low-income adults. Confirmation of the framework's usefulness should enable researchers to explore how interpersonal processes might account for observed ethnic and social class differences in health care and health.  (+info)

The goal of multicultural education is to help students understand and appreciate cultural differences and similarities and to recognize the accomplishments of diverse ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups. It is a practice that hopes to transform the ways in which students are instructed by giving equal attention to the contributions of all the groups in a society. Special focus may be placed on minority groups that have been under-represented in the past. A multicultural curriculum strives to present more than one perspective of a cultural phenomenon or an historical event. The old American melting pot metaphor is challenged as no longer being valid. Adherents of multicultural educational theory believe that the idea that students should be Americanized, in reality, assumed they should conform to a white, Eurocentric cultural model. In its place, multiculturalists believe school curricula should embrace a whole host of voices that exist in multicultural U.S. society. Their belief is that ...

Before athletic trainers can effectively work with diverse populations of athletes, they must identify and examine their own attitudes about people. One way to foster this self examination is by hosting a diversity education course as part of your program. The importance of the diversity issue, coupled with the relative lack of knowledge about the topic, may tempt you to bring in outside experts to give lectures and run workshops on the topic. Outside experts certainly are a viable option. But if your institution does not have the funds to hire outside speakers, or if you would like to approach diversity training on an internal level, you can fashion your own course by incorporating the following concepts into exercises that are specifically designed to help you and your staff examine, understand, and overcome any preconceived attitudes you may have about different races and ethnicities ...

Hispanics are the largest minority group in the USA. They contribute to the economy, cultural diversity, and health of the nation. Assessing their health status and health needs is key to inform health policy formulation and program implementation. To this end, we conducted a scoping review of the literature and national statistics on Hispanic health in the USA using a modified social-ecological framework that includes social determinants of health, health disparities, risk factors, and health services, as they shape the leading causes of morbidity and mortality. These social, environmental, and biological forces have modified the epidemiologic profile of Hispanics in the USA, with cancer being the leading cause of mortality, followed by cardiovascular diseases and unintentional injuries. Implementation of the Affordable Care Act has resulted in improved access to health services for Hispanics, but challenges remain due to limited cultural sensitivity, health literacy, and a shortage of Hispanic health
The most salient characteristic of Belizean society in the late 1980s was ethnic diversity. Ethnicity in Belize was not reduced to race, but instead referred to the collective identities formed through a complex interplay of racial, linguistic, and religious factors, as well as a sense of shared history and custom. The two largest ethnic groups together constituted almost three-quarters of the population. The 1980 census listed 39.7 percent of the population as Creole, a group usually defined as English speakers descended wholly or in part from African slaves imported to work in the colonial mahogany industry. The 1980 census combined the previously separate black and coloured segments of the population into a single group. Consequently, there was considerable physical diversity among people listed as Creole. A folk system of racial classification further hierarchically divided Creoles on the basis of such physical features as skin shade, facial features, and hair texture. Despite political ...

WCE has made efforts to broaden the applicant pool by accessing venues that have minority populations: for example, the National Association of Multicultural Education conference. Since 2006, with concentrated efforts from the Dean and faculty, the WCE has increased the number of full-time minority faculty from nine to sixteen out of 75 full-time faculty including administrators (4.4.d.1).. In addition to racial diversity, faculty have international heritage and/or have worked in international contexts. International faculty members have come from Iran, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, India, Chile, and Kenya. The WCE faculty believes that experiencing different cultures internationally and in the U.S. provides an opportunity to further develop cultural sensitivity essential when expanding ...
Managing diversity requires a comprehensive approach to creating a work environment that values all people and empowers employees to reach their full potential in pursuit of Computing Sciences and Laboratory goals and objectives.
The development of modern science has depended strongly on specific features of the cultures involved; however, its results are widely and transculturally accepted and applied. The science and technology of electricity, for example, emerged as a specific product of post-Renaissance Europe, rooted in the Greek philosophical tradition that encourages explanations of nature in theoretical terms. It did not evolve in China presumably because such encouragement was missing. The transcultural acceptance of modern science and technology is postulated to be due, in part, to the common biological dispositions underlying human cognition, with generalizable capabilities of abstract, symbolic and strategic thought. These faculties of the human mind are main prerequisites for dynamic cultural development and differentiation. They appear to have evolved up to a stage of hunters and gatherers perhaps some 100 000 years ago. However, the extent of the correspondence between some constructions of the human mind and the

This is my (Sal) favorite weblinked to UMMAlphas Homepage because "multicultural" is something that we can all relate. We live in a time in America where many of us young generation come from a mulicultured background (e.g. dad may be African American and mom may be Caucasian American). However, we cant really label ourselves just one race or two because we have ancestors from more than one race. Growing-Up in St. Paul For example, my parents are from the Philippines, but my great grandparents in my father side is from Spain-European. I can be consider Asian-European American. When I was growing-up in St. Paul, I didnt really thought much about people ethnic-cultural background. I just look at everybody as the same! I dont want to make your mind boggle because mine is already as Im writing this. My main reason for writing this is to share my personal testimony on how God revealed my true identity in Christ, which Im now part of a bigger family/group-family in Christ (no matter what race, ...
Rockville (MD), October 12, 2017 - The rich are getting richer-or at least are adding to their ranks. Between 2010 and 2016 the number of affluent consumers-i.e., U.S. adults with a household income of $250,000 or more-jumped from just over 7 million to slightly above 14 million Americans, an increase of 91%. Market research firm Packaged Facts published these findings in the recent report Affluent Consumers: Demographic Patterns and Spending Trends, 7th Edition. "Although affluent consumers currently comprise just 6% of the adult population, they accounted for 44% of growth in the adult population during the 2010 through 2016 period," says David Sprinkle, research director, Packaged Facts. Among the most important revelations found in the report is that the affluent consumer market segment has begun to reflect the ongoing change in the demographics of the American adult population as a whole. Namely, affluent multicultural households are on the rise and represent a growing opportunity. Packaged ...

BOSTON - The pharmacy linked to the nations deadly outbreak of meningitis is owned by two brothers-in-law who brought different but complementary skills to the venture: Barry Cadden and Gregory Conigliaro founded NECC in 1998 as a compounding pharmacy, a laboratory that custom-mixes solution, creams and other medicines in dosages and forms often unavailable from pharmaceutical companies. In a 2002 newsletter, he wrote that compounding had rebounded, after falling off when pharmaceutical companies began manufacturing drugs in the 1950s and 60s, and could help patients with painful conditions that demand novel approaches.

Aboriginal mappers constitute the fastest growing group of GIS users in BC (Johnson, 1995), yet their specific education needs have never been addressed by education institutions. Application of GIS to support treaty negotiations and post-treaty resource stewardship requires a body information including Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge, Cultural Sensitivity, and data acquisition methods that have heretofore not been included in any GIS oriented curriculum. Institutions offering nationally accredited programs for technician and technologist education are limited in Aboriginal oriented content in their programs, as this body of information is not included in Canadian Technology Standards (CTS).

Uh-oh. Just sent my went-behind-the-ears son to an absolutely giant school in California - he moved into his dorm today. What hath I wrought? I think its great that UM offers free tuition to Native American students. A major thing that I liked about big Cali school is that they strive to have a very diverse student body, including emphasis on underrepresented groups in higher education: Native Americans. Latinos, and African Americans. Another thing I think they do that is really cool is that they offer free tuition to academically qualified students of ALL employees, from cafeteria chefs to maintenance staff to security personnel. I am guessing that helps the staff feel a more personal and involved connection with the school, which I think is a good thing.. But I do worry about sending my son into a huge school. It was ultimately his choice, but I lament that his experience may be much less personal and intimate than a smaller school like I attended. However, I grew up in east L.A., and loved ...
UEL is unique in its supposed commitment to broadening access to higher education, underlined by the most culturally diverse student body in the country, with students drawn from a range of non-traditional educational backgrounds, a high proportion of mature students, and international students. As such it should be a model of Government policy in education for the new millennium. The Labour Government was elected on the promise of widening access to education and to knowledge resources: "the learning society" is still one of New Labours soundbites. Staff and students at the University of East London are well-known for their long term and lively commitment to pursuing the ideals of widening access to education for all those who wish to learn. Management, however, have turned these ideals into empty rhetoric ...
We were mostly looking for what was creating tensions in the building, looking at what kind of training we could do for staff in the school on such things as dealing with a diverse student body. Since integration had just started, they hadnt had to deal with diversity before, so they needed to do some contingency planning. They needed to consider what was the relationship between say, the school and the police. We also talked with staff and students about their concerns within the building regarding diversity issues. We tried to develop ways of responding to the concerns and resolving some of those problems that would diffuse tension and create a healthy educational setting. ...
Lewistown Elementary School (K-3) is a sizable facility that houses a diverse student body of approximately 600 students and 75 dedicated staff. The feel is small, however, with the overarching goal of student development and achievement; send forth literate students who grasp rudimentary mathematics concepts and are equipped with the general background knowledge, skills, and values necessary for success at intermediate and middle level academic endeavors. This relatively modest goal can only be achieved with a steadfast emphasis and focus on the absolute requirement that our instruction be individualized; the teaching and learning process customized according to the varying needs of each primary student. ...

These principles include the principles of: the equal moral worth of each and every human being (without which the human rights regime makes no sense); active agency and self-determination (without which the unique human capacities of reasoning and moral choice cannot be recognized) and deliberation and consent (without which the democratic process would be stillborn). What makes these principles cosmopolitan is not only the universal nature of their claims, but also the rejection of the assumption that the choices, rights and duties of human beings must always be embedded in states, an assumption never fully justified in democratic theory in any case. In a world of overlapping communities of fate, the principles underpinning global politics must be cosmopolitan in their form, scope and manner of entrenchment.. It is sometimes argued that cosmopolitan principles are not only insensitive to cultural diversity and difference but deny them. Nothing could be further from the truth; for pluralism and ...
Downloadable! This paper aims at identifying attributes of players in franchising process that contribute in delivering satisfaction in purchasing and operating the outlets in Mexico.

July 7, 2011, by "Bitter Valley". A few weeks ago my wife gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. Not a "half" (I am British, my wife is Japanese) but a "full" person we hope will have a wonderful bicultural future. I felt encouraged when my Japanese father-in -law, who is in his 70s, beamed at her and me and said "nice mikksu!" Good one!. Ive promised myself that I am not going to get needled by the word "haafu" despite the fact that I dont like it. Ive talked to a lot of people I trust people who are my friends who are Japanese and they assure me that its meant as a complement. In fact women friends tell me they are jealous, and they wish they had a "haafu" as well. I still dont like the fact that there are jarring connotations with the word and basically I would rather our daughter be considered as a person first, and not a person instantly differentiated on others based on her racial heritage. But I figure you pick and choose your battles and respect the culture you are living in, ...

Cultural competence training attempts to provide health care professionals with the tools and skills to communicate effectively across cultures. Some hospitals currently incorporate aspects of cultural competence into other trainings for clinicians and other staff. However, rarely, if ever, do these trainings focus on how cross-cultural issues, misunderstandings, and lack of respect for cultural beliefs and traditions, may lead to patient safety events among diverse populations.. In the recommendations below, we link cultural competence with recommendations to improve team communication given its relevance to both patient-staff interactions and staff-to-staff interactions. It is critical that training in cultural competence incorporate information on how issues related to cultural diversity or LEP may contribute to medical errors.. ...
That comment initiated an interesting discussion on whether the mainstream of the genres readership welcomes multicultural Romances, with some anecdotal author evidence suggesting they do not, despite anecdotal reader evidence that they do.. In both cases, I would argue that there has been a conditioning of sorts that has, in one case, cultivated mainstream tolerance of lower production standards, and, in the other case, cultivated mainstream intolerance of certain characteristics in Romance protagonists and settings.. I realize that some might be critical of my decision to talk about production values and multicultural characters/settings in the same post, but I am doing so deliberately, not to diminish the importance of the second issue, but because what I want to offer as a strategy to combat the second issue is, I believe, better illustrated in tandem with the first.. Since I came into the online Romance community (about ten years ago), I have heard the complaints about editing errors and ...
Cultural competency is now a core requirement for mental health professionals working with culturally diverse patient groups. Cultural competency training may improve the quality of mental health care for ethnic groups. A systematic review that included evaluated models of professional education or service delivery. Of 109 potential papers, only 9 included an evaluation of the model to improve the cultural competency practice and service delivery. All 9 studies were located in North America. Cultural competency included modification of clinical practice and organizational performance. Few studies published their teaching and learning methods. Only three studies used quantitative outcomes. One of these showed a change in attitudes and skills of staff following training. The cultural consultation model showed evidence of significant satisfaction by clinicians using the service. No studies investigated service user experiences and outcomes. There is limited evidence on the effectiveness of cultural

There are challenges to implementing the steps as outlined above for the breastfeeding-friendly pediatric office practice. Breastfeeding care delivered by physicians in the outpatient practice may be limited by lack of knowledge, skills, time, and cultural sensitivity.23 Breastfeeding management and counseling can be both time consuming and labor intensive. In many health care systems, especially in the United States, practice revenue currently is dependent on volume of visits and patients seen instead of the outcomes of those patients. The AAP Section on Breastfeeding has developed a guide on coding and billing49 as a tool to optimize reimbursement for time spent in breastfeeding support in the office. Coding guidance also is available through the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists for maternal conditions.50 If additional office visits are required beyond those covered for well-child visits, then diagnosis codes should be used for conditions such as jaundice, newborn feeding ...

The United States Supreme Court announced last week it will hear a second case on the constitutionality of affirmative action, this time concerning a ban in Michigan similar to one that already exists in California.. Affirmative action consists of policies that favor underrepresented groups based on factors such as race, color, sex or religion.. The outcome of the Michigan case, Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, could affect Californias universities if the Supreme Court decides states cannot enact affirmative action bans like Michigans Proposal 2, which prohibits the use of racial preferences in state university admissions.. Though it is unlikely, UCLA Law Professor Jonathan Varat said a Supreme Court ruling that declares all state affirmative action bans unconstitutional would be "sweeping" and "shocking." Such a decision would make Californias voter-approved affirmative action ban, Proposition 209, unconstitutional, he said.. Schuette v. Coalition comes from the U.S. Court ...
Downloadable! Many countries mandate affirmative action in university admissions for traditionally disadvantaged groups. Little is known about either the efficacy or costs of these programs. This paper examines affirmative action in engineering colleges in India for lower-caste groups. We find that it successfully targets the financially disadvantaged: the marginal upper-caste applicant comes from a more advantaged background than the marginal lower-caste applicant who displaces him. Despite much lower entrance exam scores, the marginal lower-caste entrant does benefit: we find a strong, positive economic return to admission. These findings contradict common arguments against affirmative action: that it is only relevant for richer lower-caste members, or that those who are admitted are too unprepared to benefit from the education. However, these benefits come at a cost. Our point estimates suggest that the marginal upper-caste entrant enjoys nearly twice the earnings level gain as the marginal lower
These data, which are part of a larger study undertaken by the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, evaluate the responses of criminal justice employees to affirmative action within criminal justice agencies. Information is provided on employees (1) general mood, (2) attitudes across various attributes, such as race, sex, rank, education and length of service, and (3) demographic characteristics including age, sex, race, educational level, parents occupations, and living arrangements. The use of criminal justice employees as the units of analysis provides attitudinal and perceptual data in assessing affirmative action programs within each agency. Variables include reasons for becoming a criminal justice employee, attitudes toward affirmative action status in general, and attitudes about affirmative action in criminal justice settings.. ...
The Overview of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health status 2015 provides a comprehensive summary of the most recent indicators of the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Overview shows that the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continues to improve slowly and that there have been declines in infant mortality rates and an increase in life expectancy. There have also been improvements in a number of areas contributing to health status such as increased immunisation coverage and a slight decrease in the prevalence of tobacco use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.. The Overview, which draws on the most up-to-date, authoritative sources and undertakes some special analyses, is freely available on the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet web resource, along with downloadable PowerPoint presentations of key facts, tables and figures.

This research report is a study of planned reforms in primary health care (PHC) for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the Northern Territory (between 2009 and 2014) and Cape York, Queensland (between 2006 and 2014). In both places the intention of the reforms was twofold: to establish a regional system of PHC provision with reliable access to care for all Aboriginal communities in the regions and to increase community control of health care by transferring some, or all of the responsibility for providing PHC from government health authorities to regional Aboriginal community controlled health organisations.. The study aimed to provide a coherent description of reforms in PHC for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in the Northern Territory and in Cape York, Queensland, and an analysis of what helped and what got in the way of progress, and what might be done differently in the future.. The study considered implications for future development, in particular in ...
