of a particular faith when cared for by a health care provider whose spiritual beliefs differ from their own is that they respect all individuals’ beliefs. If the patient has faith in the technique and the healer, it will aid the healing process. All healing come from God. Spiritual healing can be administered to a person of any religion denomination or none at all. God is spirit and God’s healing spiritual in nature, so therefore as long as the intent is to help and work with God. The healer works in conscious cooperation with healing guides in spirit, they all work together as a unified channel for God’s healing.

“What are the critical components of healing?” Jen states that, a Sikh who is hospitalized may call for a Sikh healer to come and pray with them. The healer is able to provide a channel for healing, transmitted from God, to the person who is ill. As a Sikh patient she would like to play sacred music that is used for meditation. This music is known as Gurubani Kirtan (www.sikhs.org). She also needs uninterrupted periods for prayer so that she can fully surrender her suffering to God and receive His peace and comfort.

One of the five key principles of care practice is to ‘Support people in having a voice and being heard,’ (K101, Unit 4, p.183). The key principles are linked to the National Occupational Standards for ‘Health and Social Care’. They are a means of establishing and maintaining good care practice. Relationships based on trust and respect should be developed between care receivers and care givers, thus promoting confidence whilst discussing personal matters without fear of reprisal and discrimination.
This essay will look at case studies in K101 Block 2 to demonstrate why the principle is important and how care workers can apply different methods of putting it into practice

As we have seen that cultural diversity exists almost everywhere and cultural health traditions have a huge impact on healing. Therefore in conclusion, in this ever changing transcultural society that practices health traditions immensely, getting to know and understand cultural beliefs and health traditions has become a major requirement for nurses. By doing so, nurses will fulfill the role of successful entrepreneurs who can skillfully implement modern health care practices for the patients and thereby avoiding various cultural conflicts.

It is often challenging to have health care services that meet the needs of Canada’s diverse population and the needs of both men and women. Gender influences access to care and women in particular are at risk for face difficulties to care (Ontario Women`s Health Equity Report, 2010 p.1). Women are more likely to be poor and have greater caregiver responsibilities in contrast to men. These both factors are barriers to accessing health services. The way the health care system is organized creates barriers to accessing effective care for women because it has failed to take into account that men and women use the health care system very differently.

Using one of the core principles of bioethics I support my claim that it is not ethical to racially discriminate against the professional delivery of health care services. Principle number three is to “refrain from harming other persons,” and in this instance racially discriminating by race would be harming someone, a qualified health care provider (Steinbock et el. 37). Although a principle is not absolute, it has a moral pull on decision-making. The principle of bioethics can be reinforced through other means of evidence that

Is Racism the cause of Health care disparity?
In recent discussions of health care disparities, a controversial issue has been whether racism is the cause of health care disparities or not. On one hand, some argue that racism is a serious problem in the health care system. From this perspective, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) states that there is a big gap between the health care quality received by minorities, and the quality of health care received by non-minorities, and the reason is due to racism. On the other hand, however, others argue that health care disparities are not due to racism. In the words of Sally Satel, one of this view’s main proponents, “White and black patients, on

Rising health care costs have caused a national crisis, and all agree we must embrace reform. President Obama has initiated his national health care plan in the hopes of decreasing some of the inflated costs. When attempting to resolve this issue, one must always address the root of the problem. A large portion of these inflationary costs stem from malpractice lawsuits, and so begins the debate for tort reform: legislation which would cut the costs of health care by reducing the risk of civil litigation and exposure to fraudulent claims (“What”). However, the real factor at hand and the real cause of the industry’s high costs does not come solely from the cost incurred from these lawsuits

Principles and Components of Primary Health Care
According to World Health Organization (1978), primary health care is defined as a universally accessible health care that is socially acceptable, affordable and requires individuals to be more self-reliant with their health care needs. Primary health care has many goals, but the most important is introducing the importance of self-reliance to individuals. The main objective of primary health care is to provide better health for all. In order to accomplish this goal, the world health organization stated five key goals. “The five key goals are: firstly, to reduce exclusion and social health disparities, that is the universal coverage reforms

Human Resource Management is defined as the process of managing human talent to achieve an organization’s objectives (Bohlander & Snell, 2010).

The role that human resource management plays is the most vital in all business organizations. This importance is easily seen in running a health care facility.

Every day, physicians called pediatricians are helping and treating children’s illnesses and making sure they are healthy. Dr. Ananya Mandel describes pediatrics “as the branch of medicine dealing with the health and medical care of infants, children and adolescents from birth up to the age of 18” (Ananya l). Pediatricians work with children and care about their health. Without pediatricians, children wouldn’t receive special treatment, which is highly necessary since caring for children’s health is not the same as adult care. Although being a pediatrician is very time consuming and can be emotional, it is a rewarding and interesting career.

health care does work; it just does not work consistently. To increase consistency in services that managed mental health care provides three things must happen: increased competition, laws to protect the customer, and improved treatment provider ethics. An increase in competition will in general help increase quality. To bring about competition all companies must disclose important information about their business. Also, the government needs to step up and pass legislation that puts more pressure on employers to include mental health coverage. Legislation pertaining to parity was a step forward, but an employer currently can simply drop mental health coverage to circumvent the laws. Finally

Evidence of the health promoting power of primary care has increased ever since investigators have been able to differentiate primary care from other characteristics of the health services delivery system. Studies constantly show that primary care has a positive effect on health results. It reduces mortality and morbidity, and it is considerably more lucrative than specialty based care.

health care worker can do this is by answering the eight questions developed by Arthur Kleinman. These questions are “designed to elicit a patient’s explanatory model” (Fadiman, 1997, p.260). The answers to these questions might be very eye opening to the heath care provider and thus help them understand their patient’s culture better. I also learned from this book that it is also important for the health care worker to understand the culture and values of the United States health care system. “If you can’t see that your own culture has its own set of interests, emotions, and biases, how can you expect to deal successfully with someone else’s culture?” (Fadiman, 1997, p.261) With this knowledge
