In particular, key social factors considered under this model include the impact of poverty, poor housing, diet and pollution on persons’ health. For instance, poor housing and poverty may prove to be catalysts to respiratory problems, and in response to these causes and origins of ill health, an objective of the socio-medical model is to encourage society to provide better housing and introduce programs to tackle poverty, and these propositions are seen as viable solutions. The socio-medical model encourages people to live healthy lifestyles, it looks at the cause of the illness and tries to change the factor that causes the illness to prevent it from continuing rather than only giving when diagnosis and only medical treatment. The factors which the socio-medical model suggest is also a cause of ill health such as poor housing, poverty and diet can have a strong impact on the over health and wellness of individuals, communities and countries. The model emphasises preventing and changing the cause of an illness on a more natural way instead of relying on medication.
2007). These principles work in collaboration with each other for the patient, which endeavours to do the best in order to protect the patient from any harm (Dimond, 2008). However, Pozar (2006), Griffiths and Tenghah (2008) argue these two principles should outweigh respect for autonomy in life threatening situations, except when a competent patient is able to comprehend the life-threatening risk without the influence of others, then legally and morally professionals must respect the patient’s right to autonomy. Yet with regards to justice there is an obligation to treat people fairly and not to judge or discriminate against them in anyway (Dimond 2008). Whereas by definition, paternalism restricts a person’s right to autonomy, and takes another person’s autonomous right away and makes decision on their behalf, even if it is contrary to the wishes of the patient (Beauchamp and Childress 2001).
The primary focus on this level of care is to help ward off diseases through a healthier life. Patients can achieve this level of health through knowledge and understanding from education. Nurses can assist in the promotion of primary care by educating patients regarding the importance and benefits of vaccinations and avoiding risky behaviors that may lead to diseases, such as, smoking and unprotected sex. Nurses at the primary level may also educate patients regarding healthy eating and routine exercises to decrease risk factors. The secondary level of health promotion involves early diagnosis and rapid intervention to decrease the progress of any disease process.

Virtue ethics, character traits – or virtues and vices – are the components of moral analysis and the particular forms of human excellence. Virtues are familiar traits of one’s character such as kindness, truthfulness, compassion, and loyalty; and vices such as meanness, dishonesty and cruelty. Virtue ethics would be the best theory to apply to health care reform and insuring the uninsured. Everyone wants to live the “good life”, and if a person believes that doing good will bring good, then individuals need to join together to make sure all are being taking care, for the good of the people (the insured and
What makes health care different? In the healthcare system, federal and state regulation can be used to accomplish several important goals (Harris, 2011, p. 62). These include, to protect the public health by preventing and controlling communicable disease and protecting the public against bioterrorism, to promote the quality of healthcare services provided by facilities and individual practitioners, to reduce healthcare costs and promote access to care, and to protect consumers in the market for health insurance and other types of coverage (Harris, 2011, p. 62). While I would agree that it should be operated under more of a free enterprise system it is items such as these that make it important for the government involved. Healthcare is very different from other free enterprise systems as there are many licensures that are required by various professionals and facilities, and some choose self-regulation via accreditation facilities.

The principle of justice obliges health care professionals distribute everything fairly and equally. This distribution can be decided through Ross’s theory of prima facie, the theory is that on application principles are bound with equal weighing. As each principle is bound with an equal weight, health care professionals will need to consciously distribute moral justice by choosing which moral principle carries the most weight. When faced with a moral dilemma health care professionals need to assess the details and possible outcomes of that dilemma to determine which principle if any outweigh the others. This could be regarded as the distribution of moral justice, choosing on which principle they are morally obliged to follow (Steinbock, 2007, p22).
However, in some situation cases, for example, it is not punished if it brings a person who is very sick to hospital. The reason why "laws" has been established is to make better life for humans. Thus, law should be applied in flexible manner if it is beneficial to people. All things considered, with the reasons mentioned above, I have sufficiently and adequately explained my position on
