In the UK, alcohol causes 12,500 cases of cancer, around 4%.I also think this strategy is easy to follow as there’s no need to stop drinking alcohol completely, just less of it. It’s a positive strategy as it helps people save money rather than spend it but there’s also people out there who are alcohol dependant or even get peer pressured into it. Breast screenings or X-Rays can be a positive strategy for breast cancer, even though it may already show that the patient has breast cancer, they may be able to catch it
A young mother is in intensive care after having a rare but serious reaction to a friend's prescription antibiotics that caused her to "burn" from the inside out. Yassmeen Castanada, 19, wasn't feeling well on Thanksgiving, so she took a pill that her friend had left over from a previous illness. Soon, Castanada's eyes, nose and throat began to burn, and she was rushed to the emergency room, her mother, Laura Corona, told ABC News. Her body erupted in blisters over the next few days, Corona said. She had to be sedated and placed on a ventilator.
Nathan is now being charged with assault of an officer. His mother says that under Laura's Law, she would have been able to get Nathan on medication, which could have improved his condition and prevented an altercation with the police” (Gould). Kelly and Nathan’s cases were remarkable evidence of the necessity of implementation of Laura’s Law. According to commentary from the Forbes, “81 percent of those ordered into treatment said AOT helped them get and stay well” (Jaffe, "Involuntary Treatment"). Furthermore, it is necessary to intervene when someone is actively suicidal and at risk of great harm or even
Quality of Life and Functioning Thomas Case Scenario By Vanessa Schneider Western Governors University Personal Perceptions On May 8, 1990 my mother was diagnosed with colon cancer. That day is clearly etched in my mind, because it was my birthday. Less than two years later she died. Having lived a scenario close to Mrs. Thomas’s, I personally can speak about how one’s own perceptions in regard to quality of life and health promotion might affect the care administered to a patient with a terminal illness. Often when providing care for a patient with a lingering illness the nurse must refocus to ensure the needs and wants of the patient and family are being followed and not allow her own personal beliefs to interfere.
My second solution may well eliminate more and more cases of TBI if number of soldiers decrease. Third solution will be a lifesaver. It is known that TBI patients, if not treated, may commit suicide in some cases. So if patients are diagnosed earlier, some lives might be saves and also tension and anxiety will be reduced on families of those who suffer TBI. A counterargument in regards to TBI would be the long-run treatment.

This is due to machines prolonging life, medications are stronger when administered by a nurse versus a by mouth pain pill and due to rigorous disease treatment cycles (cancer, lung disease, HIV, Hep B/C, etc) Most patients that are able to relay information in their last days, would like to die a good death. By dying a good death, it can be explained as suffering from minimal pain, having friends and family around, and a non hospital setting. “Influenced by concerns regarding the care of dying people, scientific and debates about assisted suicide and euthanasia, strategic documents privilege the pursuit of a ‘good death’ by raising the profile of dying people’s needs and preferences, prioritizing choice, inviting individuals to plan for their dying and deaths and encouraging the use of end-of-life care pathways for the imminently dying.” (WATTS, T.
