  • Review the Layman article, “Health Informatics: Ethical Issues” in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Consider current and potential technologies and how they might be in conflict with patient rights.
  • Select a current health information technology.
  • Ask yourself if the need to know and share patient health information compromises confidentiality.
  • Consider the right to privacy versus the overall benefits of the community.

Respond to the following:

  • Identify potential conflicts that might occur with the principles of beneficence, autonomy, fidelity, and justice when this technology is fully implemented.
  • Provide an example illustrating how the effectiveness of the technology overrides any chance of a conflict with principles of beneficence, autonomy, fidelity, or justice.

Healthcare Policy & Economics

This Assignment is a team activity where you will evaluate another country’s healthcare system.

 

 My group choose canada and i have to research the following questions. ONLY 4 and 5 have do be answered 

 

 

1.) How does the other country’s system work and how is it funded? Do the funding mechanisms work well in your view? (You might want to look at taxation rates.) Have there been implications to the country’s wider economy as a result of the cost of the system? Are they positive or negative?
2.) What is the ratio of physicians to the population, and how are they compensated? At what levels?
3.) What, if any, delivery shortcomings are experienced?
4.) How is technology distributed? Is the emphasis of the system on preventive care or acute care?
5.) How do the cultural aspects of this society play into health care outcomes?
6.) How does this nation’s health care system compare against that of the U.S., in terms of cost, services, technology, and health outcomes?

The Diverse Nature of Psychology

Write a 1,050- to 1400-word paper in which you analyze the diverse nature of psychology as a discipline.

Address the following items as a part of your analysis:

  • Evaluate the influence of diversity on psychology’s major concepts.
  • Identify two examples of subdisciplines and two examples of subtopics within psychology. Examples of major concepts and their subtopics include the following:
    • Motivation: theory of emotion, and approach and avoidance
    • Behaviorism: aggression, cheating, and binge drinking
    • Cognition: cognitive dissonance and false memories
  • How can the subdisciplines and subtopics you identified be applied to other disciplines and venues in contemporary society?
  • Relate the subdisciplines and subtopics to your theoretical perspective.
  • Conclude with your psychological contribution to society in the areas of work, education, health, and leisure.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
