The patient has a right to decide one’s medical care. One also has a right to know of any side effects of treatments. June needs to be told what may happen without the feeding tube and what can be expected with the feeding tube. June also has a right to have her health information kept confidential, with information given only to those she designates as being allowed to have her health information (Showalter, 2008). It is noted that in the absence of a progressive terminal disease, the feeding tube may be used to prolong life and since the patient is not dying of another cause, discontinuing the feeding tube would imply a desire to cause the patient’s death.
When she was in her right state of mind she consented to treatment. Despite her refusal in the evening to allow the placement of the feeding tube, due to her being disoriented and not capable of making proper medical decisions, her physicians would have to wait until she’s coherent to ask her about informed consent, before placing the feeding tube. Therefore, physicians providing June with a “diagnosis, planned course of treatment, alternatives, risks and prognosis” all relate to how the Patient Bill of Rights applies to this situation (Showalter, p. 272). Based on the facts given in the scenario, would the patient be considered competent to decide?

Migrants do not readily fit into the culture and structure of the Australian health care system and an interest has emerged into addressing the needs of Australians whose views are unlike the Anglo-Australian majority. The relationship between ethnicity and health within Australia does differentiate certain illnesses and diseases amongst groups such as the Indigenous and Asian community in comparison with the Australian population. With increasing migration due to post-Second World War immigration programs (Grbich 2004, pp. 102), Australia has become a diverse nation which accepts different types of cultures. With an increasing population of ethnic groups, it is apparent that status and experiences of health are different across each minor ethnic population.
I don’t have any appetite.” Client has also expressed, “Why try? Dialysis will take care of any extra fluid and minerals.” The first nursing diagnosis that can be applied is imbalanced nutrition: less than body requirements related to anorexia, fatigue, and altered taste secondary to impaired renal function evidenced by ashen skin, pale conjunctivae, wasted appearance, high BUN, and low hemoglobin and hematocrit can be given. Based on this nursing diagnosis the client will start to make a plan to help change his views of nutrients and their importance on the body.

Through this experience, she witnessed firsthand how this disease cripples one physically and mentally. She could draw on this experience and utilize some of this knowledge in her therapy sessions with Andy. She could also use her knowledge about the medical aspects of AIDS to monitor Andy’s progress and help him to eliminate stressors that will make his condition worse. This learner would not have any concerns about this client or her ability to work with him effectively. According to Corey, Corey and Callanan (2011), negative personal reactions, limited empathy and lack of understanding are common characteristics in therapists who work with LGB clients (p.133).

This system will be able to better integrate and coordinate the primary health care in local communities. The Australian health system is under strain. As we have heard from the AGPN, Australia has a large amount of users in the Tertiary sector and a large percentage of these have resulted due to a lack of correct intervention and management. With a 3 tiered health system, made up of primary, secondary and tertiary levels it has been shown that consumers are experiencing disconnected and fragmented care, under not just one system but many. This lack of continuity has been shown to lead to poorer health outcomes, as a result of late intervention, focusing on illness rather than wellness and as well as being frustrating to patients and their care providers it increases costs.
It can often result from possessing excess body weight and the lack of any physical activity (WHO 2012). People with type 2 diabetes can be treated with oral medication, but in more serious cases, may also require insulin injections. Type 2 diabetes gives rise to many challenges for primary care staff in preventing and managing complications (Mold et al. 2008). Nurses play a major role in improving diabetes care and empowering patients to develop their self-management and life skills.
Wellness programs that teach patients how to monitor their blood sugars, count carbohydrates, take insulin properly, and overall manage their diabetes through lifestyle changes and not micromanagement, will provide opportunities to avoid some of the pitfalls of being diagnosed with diabetes. As of September 23, 2010, the new health care reform laws will forced private insurers to guarantee coverage without the out of pocket expense of co pays and deductibles, for health screening for
