Writing about one’s personal experience encourages self-reflection and improves self-awareness. In this activity students are invited to reflect, in writing, on their experiences related to managing clinical risks for patients (nursing). Students to write about an event they observed or were involved in during their nursing profession that they feel might have placed a patient at risk. Alternatively, students may want to write about an event that occurred to them as recipients of healthcare, or as an observer to their friends’ or family members’ experiences. The event may be one that they feel related to any of anticipation, recognition, or management of a patient safety risk. Safe patient care and reducing medical-legal risk requires nurse practitioners to be aware of potential risks and how to avoid them.
The narrative should include:
a description of the event an explanation of how this event placed a patient at risk the students reflections on the event including: if and how the event was recognized why and how the event occurred, for example, was the event due to action or inaction by an individual healthcare provider system failure(s) a combination of systems failure(s) and individual provider performance issues what changes or improvements they would make, if any how they felt at the time how they currently feel about the even Were you personally involved in the event? Discuss. What, if any, workplace factors contributed to the event? (e.g., Was it during a handover? Did it involve a medication?) How aware was the healthcare provider(s) of what was going on around them? (situational awareness) How did the health care provider(s) recognize the safety problem, and how did they respond? How did this event affect you? What did you take away that you will use in the future?
seeking a positive definition of Man’s aspiration in the “original position”, but the inevitable result, because we will all define happiness differently, is to create a foundational quagmire for his theories.Â After all, you may define happiness as having a lot of stuff, but I may define it as spiritual enlightenment.Â Â The classic understanding, basing the social contract on the avoidance of death, is obviously universal, we are all agreed that our own deaths are to be avoided, and, therefore, more sound.Â . Finding the basic supposition that props up Rawls’ whole theory to be fundamentally incorrect, it behooves us little to examine the superstructure he seeks to construct upon this error.Â Suffice it to say, no system of government has ever achieved a more equal distribution of wealth and power than has the American Constitutional Republic and it is based on the classic understanding of human nature found in Hobbes and Locke.Â ‘Nuff said. (Reviewed:) John Rawls is perhaps the most significant intellectual in philosophical ethics to have written in the past hundred years. It is nearly impossible to address ethics in contemporary philosophy without saying something about John Rawls. Central to his theory of justice are the concepts of fairness and equality from behind what he terms a “veil of ignorance”. Rawls’s veil of ignorance is a component of the way people can construct society. He refers to an “original position” in which a person is attempting to determine a fair arrangement for society without any preconceived notions or prejudices. In this original position, people are behind what Rawls calls a “Veil of Ignorance” and do not know where they will fall in the social hierarchy in terms of race, class, sex, disability, and other relevant factors. Rawls is a Kantian liberal in that he believes that principles of justice should be universalizable, and so the only way to ensure that people will select fair principles of justice is to be certain that they do not know how the principles they select might affect them as individuals. A person behind the “veil of ignorance” does not know which side of a social contract he or she will be on, does not know his or her race, class, sex, or status in society. A person who does not know what privileges he or she will be born with (or without ) is, in Rawls’ view, more likely to construct a society that does not arbitrarily assign privilege based on characteristics that should have no bearing on what people get. Rawls believes that a society cannot be just without fairness and equality and believes this veil of ignorance both reveals the biases of In A Theory of Justice, Rawls attempts to make a rational study of social ethics by using reason to determine what a just society should look like and how a rational group of people would organize themselves. One major topic of interest that Rawls presents is the veil of ignorance concept and its role in the creation of original position. Two further concepts of importance to the theory of a just society are the difference principle and the concept of individual liberty in society. Together, these three concepts provide a basis for the discussion and critique of Rawls’ theory and its implications for the pursuance of justice. Current society and can help to prevent biases in establishing future social arrangements. Rawls’ method to justice as a theory proposes that principles of justice can be determined through the rational thinking of individuals shrouded by a veil of ignorance. In a purely hypothetical situation, the veil of ignorance creates an original position of equality in which persons under the veil have no knowledge of status, position in society, personal wealth or natural abilities. From behind the veil of ignorance, a rational, objective and disinterested group of people would choose a system of justice that ensures an equal distribution of rights and duties.>
