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 ...

Despite significant evidence pointing to the key role of relationship quality in solidifying commercial relationships, limited attention has been paid to its determinants in an international context. In an attempt to fill this research gap, our study examines the impact of asset specificity, role performance and cultural sensitivity on the quality of the relationships between importers and their foreign suppliers. It is based on a mailed survey involving 292 importing firms. Relationship quality is presented as a higher-order concept that results in lower conflict and greater trust, commitment and satisfaction. The results indicate that asset specificity, role performance and cultural sensitivity play a significant positive role in building sound relationship quality. Several managerial implications are extracted from the study, as well as suggestions for future research.. ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

Cultural Competence as a concept was initially created as an offshoot of multiculturalism and globalization. We typically think of cultural competence as a panacea in addressing cross-cultural integration from the micro, mezzo and macro perspectives. In professional practice, cultural competence proposes numerous ways of understanding society and provides practice approaches and strategies that acknowledge and respect people from diverse backgrounds e.g. sexual orientation, social class, race, color, ethnicity, culture, language, immigration status, gender, marital status, age, political ideology, religion, literacy level and physical attributes.. As we further examine Cultural Competence, we must think about positions of inequality, recognize undercurrents of power differences, and explore ways of confirming a social justice perspective within the context of difference, intersectionality and empowerment. We must also understand Cultural Competence from the viewpoint of history as well as ...

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 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.

The cultural consultation model showed evidence of significant satisfaction by clinicians using the service. No studies investigated service user experiences and outcomes.

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 ...

Teachers of Bilingual/Multicultural Children in Past and Present Times Eva Yerendé, University of Texas at Arlington, [email protected] Teachers of bilingual/multicultural children are often identified as insiders or outsiders-that is, individuals who share or do not share similar sociolinguistic and cultural backgrounds with their students (Bustamante-Jones, Young, & Rodriguez, 1999; Green, Tran, & Young, 2005). This distinction is addressed in the context of the growing disparities observed between the socioeconomic, linguistic, and cultural profiles of students and teachers particularly among African American and Latino communities (Ladson-Billings, 2001; Ladson-Billings & Tate, 1995; Mercado & Santamaria, 2005). The consensus of these discussions is that insiders are better positioned to function as role models and cultural brokers for students from minoritized and underprivileged backgrounds in a formal educational system that has historically objectified students and teachers from ...
Florida schools are growing in diversity, and we recognize the serious implications of this evolving change.

We recognize the serious implications of these statistics to meeting the learning needs of diverse students. Our commitment to diversity is evident in the strand of responders to diversity, which is woven throughout initial teacher preparation programs and advanced programs.

Interface designs that rely on metaphors should taking into account cultural diversity of targeted users (Marcus & West-Gould, 2000). Interfaces need to reflect the values, ethics, and morals of the target users (Ford & Gelderblom, 2003, p.220). According to Marcus (1998), metaphors provide a visual meaning of concepts through words and images. Duncker (2002) emphasizes that metaphors have to match the target users mental model of physical objects. When users feel a sense of representation they are able to benefit from and feel comfortable using metaphors.. The question arises as to whether the house metaphor applies to other cultures. The typical Indian house and living arrangements are structured very differently than the average American home. The house metaphor presented on Tide.com is not consistent with a typical urban Indian house. In addition to bedrooms, the Tide.com house has a playroom, nursery, bathroom, office/den, kitchen/dining, garage/shop, and laundry/basement. Urban Indian ...

Commenting on the report, Dr David Jones, director of Anscombe Bioethics Centre said: It is difficult to imagine the situation where a parent faces losing a child and it is understandable that many parents are unwilling to let go. This is true whether a parent has faith or not.. In a third of cases of difficulty noted in the report, religious faith did not play any explicit role. It is not, therefore, a uniquely religious problem, but a question of how best to find agreement about what is in the childs best interests.. He added: We should be wary of changing the balance of the law on the basis of such a few cases where, partly because of issues of cultural diversity and lack of availability of religious community leaders, agreement has not been able to be reached.. ...
The movement for multicultural or diversity-centered education has resulted in changes to the academic demography of the United States (Banks, 1991; Butler & Walter, 1991; Goodstein, 1994; Morey & Kitano, 1997). Institutions of higher education have integrated the voices, knowledge, and lived experiences of various underrepresented cultures and excluded groups into their formal academic curriculum. A recent survey by the American Association of Colleges and Universities (AACU) shows that 63% of colleges and universities report that they have in place, or are in the process of developing, a diversity education component in their undergraduate curriculum (AACU, 2003). Of those that have implemented dimensions of diversity into their curriculum, the majority of campuses (68%) require their students to take at least one course from among a list of approved diversity-education courses. The success of many colleges and universities at integrating this level of multicultural or diversity education into the
The idea of neurodiversity is really a paradigm shift in how we think about kids in special education. Instead of regarding these students as suffering from deficit, disease, or dysfunction, neurodiversity suggests that we speak about their strengths. Neurodiversity urges us to discuss brain diversity using the same kind of discourse that we employ when we talk about biodiversity and cultural diversity. We dont pathologize a calla lily by saying that it has a petal deficit disorder. We simply appreciate its unique beauty. We dont diagnose individuals who have skin color that is different from our own as suffering from pigmentation dysfunction. That would be racist. Similarly, we ought not to pathologize children who have different kinds of brains and different ways of thinking and learning.. Although the origins of the neurodiversity movement go back to autism activist Jim Sinclairs 1993 essay Dont Mourn for Us, the term neurodiversity was actually coined in the late 1990s by two ...
