Henry is not so convinced and as the procedure looms closer he asks his nurse to help him make a decision on whether or not to go ahead with the procedure.

Role of the student in a theatre/recovery setting: a reflective analysis The purpose of this paper is to reflectively discuss the issues raised in the scenario in appendix 1. Using Rolfe et al (2001) model of reflection to structure the paper In accordance with the NMC code of professional conduct (2005) all names and places have been changed in order to protect confidentiality. Firstly, one the main issues raised here is conflict between roles. The conflict arose when the student nurse was told by a qualified anaesthetist to carry out a task, then was told she was not allowed to carry out that task by her mentor.

doctors shouldn't treat abortion simply because each patient has a particular case; sometimes the fetus or embryo is a result of incest, rape, fetal defects or puts the mother’s health at risk. In these cases the doctor should encourage or normalize abortion, but I other cases he should remind them of the side effects and the morality while respecting the woman’s decision without traumatizing her in order to make the memory a good one, as the author suggests. Prine focuses on the positive impact that abortion has on relationships between mother/daughter or within a couple because of the support they give each other during this experience. But this is nothing to compare to the relationship the woman will have with her own child. They say a mother’s love is unconditional, which is a love she won’t experience if she aborts.
