1.2 Explain why it is important to work in a way that embeds person – centred values. It is important we work in this way in order to promote individuality, this allow individuals to make informed decisions and choices, as well as understand the consequences as well as possible risks of such decisions and choice that may well relate to their own health and wellbeing. We must do this within the appreciation of rights within the care value base. We can uphold this by empowering individuals to maintain their own independence. Each individual should have the right to privacy which encourages that person to maintain dignity and self-respect.
Obamacare forces people to have health insurance, so it caused those who do not agree with it to make the choice to not get any type of health insurance. For those who did obtain health insurance, it makes it difficult for health care facilities to accept new patients with pre-existing health conditions because there are many insurance companies who do pay for health care for pre-existing health conditions. This can cause problems for health care facilities to obtain payment for services from the insurance companies. Other political forces that may also influence the development of the clinic are the state’s budget that could be distributed among the healthcare industry and where the money is being used, what clinical staff positions are going to be funded, and which programs will be implemented and which ones will be terminated. Many facilities determine what services they are going to be providing by where their facility is located.
Limitations include the fact that you cannot choose the doctor you wish to go to. That is one thing that having health care given to you limits. You are assigned a doctor or a place to get checked up on regardless of what preference you have on the doctor or the place of practice. Also, the way people that some people look at this theory of healthcare for everybody is that they are the ones paying for it through the taxes that are deducted from their paycheck every week in order to help fund this notion. Granite there is not a lof of people that think this way, but from hearing people say that, the idea is definitely out there.
Marion Jacobs indicates a decrease in the number of doctors and teachers. Since then, with her exaggeration, she blames all of the faults on the shortages of teachers and doctors. It is not really make sense, because the medical and education are affected by many aspects, not just the shortage of teachers and doctors. In addition, she believes that people who hold degrees are healthier than others, she says it without evidences and the researches that she mentions are unreliable. In fact, a lot of degree holders do not have good health because of long time focus on studying.
With taxes at a breaking point government has little recourse but to try to hold down costs. Government cutting budget for health care sector affects every aspect. Since labour is the main component of health costs, income for health workers and professionals have been brought under tight government controls. This causes brain wash. Health professionals will migrate to other countries were they would compensate for the same services they provide. This causes shortage of labour force in health care sector which in turn causes long patient wait time.
Under our current delivery system, it is difficult for a private health clinic to survive, much like the Cambie Clinic in Vancouver is currently learning. With the high costs associated to the infrastructure for a state of the art medical centre such as Cambie, it is very difficult situation to breakeven let alone make a profit when you cannot charge your customers. As the current Health Act is set up you cannot illegally charge for services that are paid for in the public system. In our current system, Cambie cannot survive as the private clinic they want to, but I think that it is necessary to adjust our regulations to accommodate such facilities. I do not believe that Cambie is entitled to increasing the premium of which the government pays for health care
As the years pass, modern medicine is advancing and benefiting humanity greatly. However, unlike doctor-assisted suicide, it cannot entirely eradicate the pain and distress of the dying process. Doctors are supposed to alleviate a patient's pain, if not, completely eliminate it. In addition, physicians do not have the capability of knowing what their patients are experiencing, and therefore should not force the patient to continue living against his or her will. Repeated efforts to heal patients are often considered inhumane and not medically sound.
The cause for uninsured people can simply be explained by the cost of health insurance. The United States should not be giving free benefits out to people who aren’t even supposed to be here. Hospitals are the ones taking the hits for the entirety of clients who are not able to pay. This causes the hospitals to close and hundreds of people lose their jobs. Employees of the medical field should be aware of this problem and pass on the information to prevent the up rise of non-paying clients.
It could create jobs, insure the almost 20 percent of Americans uninsured, and lower the cost of health insurance all across the board. The current state of the economy is not helping the reformists in the slightest. People are struggling to keep their job let alone pay for health insurance, and if there was reform who’s to say the economy will be strong enough that these same people can afford the reformed state version of health insurance. There also arguments as to our system being highly inefficient. When you look at European systems of universal healthcare and the “right to live” motto, it’s hard to understand why the United States isn’t on board with universal healthcare.
It is a known fact in the United States that the health care system is broken; however, there is little, if any, dialogue on how to fix it. Each day in the United States more than 40 million people go uninsured; 40 million people don’t have access to necessary medical care. The government has decided to leave the health of its citizens at the mercy of an expensive, messy system where some get great care while others get none at all. The implementation of a universal health care system has been proposed, and politicians have made it very clear that is it off the table. Adopting such a system would not only be beneficial to the next generations but in helping Americans cope with the difficult times the nation is facing right now.
