Discussion: Forensic Evaluations

Read the following article on ethical issues in forensic evaluations: Ethical Issues in Conducting Forensic Evaluations. by Kalmbach and Lyons

In your initial posts to your peers, discuss some of the major ethical issues that arise when conducting forensic evaluations and how they can impact the outcomes. What does it mean to be competent? How does it impact an evaluation? How do you think one becomes competent?

In response to your peers, think about your ideas of competence and if they differ. Do you think this plays into the field professionally? Do you think it impacts the weight of an evaluation?

You will discuss the following issue: What are the major differences between digital immigrants and digital natives? Do the differences, if any, affect the ability to educate? If so, how?

This is a paper designed to show that you know how to consider both sides of an issue equally and know how to articulate scholarly, thoughtful, and balanced arguments for each side. The goal of the Personal Debate is to understand each side of an issue while prayerfully and intelligently forming a conclusive conviction about that issue.

Your Personal Debate will consist of a title page, 2 pages that present a balanced and objective articulation of both sides of the issue, 1 page with your conclusion that presents your personal thoughts and persuasive views about the issue, and a bibliography with a minimum of 3 scholarly references. The assignment must be a minimum of 5 pages, including the title page and bibliography, and must follow current APA format.

Discuss the different ways research has tested social disorganization theory, using peer-reviewed articles as examples. You should discuss how social disorganization is defined, the data used to measure these concepts, and how different definitions and measures matter for testing a theory. Have these tests found support for social disorganization theory?

Evidence Based Nursing in Geriatrics

Nurses who work in the field of geriatrics, also known as gerontology, focus on caring for older adults. This is a high-demand practice area, because older people are more likely to require health services. Half of all hospital admissions are for patients over age 65, but only 1% of nurses are certified in geriatrics (ExploreHealthCareers.org, 2013). Geriatric nurses are educated to understand and treat the often complex physical and mental health needs of older people. Nurses try to help their patients protect their health and cope with changes in their mental and physical abilities, so older people can stay independent and active as long as possible. Many older people have health conditions that do not require hospitalization, but must be treated with medication, changes in diet, use of special equipment, daily exercises or other adaptations. The nurses often function as a case manager, linking families with community resources to help them care for elderly members. (ExploreHealthCareers.org, 2013.) Geriatric nursing is a fast-growing career, because Americans are living longe…




Technology and Accreditation in Nursing

On February 17, 2009, President Barack Obama signs into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). The law promotes electronic medical records (EMR) and infrastructure development, such as reimbursement-based pay, to cut health care costs (Frequently Asked Questions, 2009). Likewise, the ARRA is restructuring Medicare disbursements to reimburse for quality not quantity. While the law does not mandate EMR use, the federal government has set aside twenty billion dollars to help in the development of a strong health information technology infrastructure. Title IV states, “NO INCENTIVE PAYMENT IF FIRST ADOPTING AFTER 2014” (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, 2009). In times of economic turmoil, hospitals and physicians, who are not hospital-based, can receive incentive payments (Frequently Asked Questions, 2009). So, most institutions will comply with the restructuring and use EMR’s, even though there are pros and cons.
EMRs provide a common access point where clinicians and health care providers can review and document information about clients and the…




Informatics Use in Nursing Practice

One area of nursing that is growing at an extraordinary pace is the specialty of informatics. A majority of hospitals today have implemented informatics into nursing care in one form or another. By looking at one hospital’s use of technology the extent of nursing informatics becomes clearer. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate how informatics has influenced nursing paperwork, communication, support tools, and patient safety in a level one trauma center in downtown Phoenix.

Nurse Practitioner Reflective Paper

Reflective Paper

As a Nurse Practitioner, one can be exposed to a variety of healthcare challenges. Additionally, time for reflection and synthesis of education and attitude can help one to frame events of life and work. A biblical worldview can guide an individual in these thought processes as well as provide “peace that surpasses all understanding.” With this in mind, you will write a Reflection Paper. This paper is designed to help you purposely think and reflect on topics that will become a part of your life as a Christian FNP. After the paper is due, we will spend time discussing these topics. The paper is to be APA formatted with the body of the paper being 3–5 pages in length (not including the cover page and references).

This is an example of a good research paper.

Scenario for Reflective Paper: As a FNP, you are planning for an office visit with an established patient who has been diagnosed with an aggressive terminal illness. The patient is experiencing a rapid decline. You anticipate that death could happen as soon as a couple of weeks and need to have an end of life discussion. The patient is from another country and culture. You have asked for the patient to bring a family member and have already discussed the progression of the disease as well as physical symptom management. Spiritual and cultural considerations are a priority for the visit. Please select a faith and/or culture that you would like to explore in your response to the scenario (the faith and culture that you will be exploring is Muslim)   Review the rubric below for specifics on how to address this scenario in the paper.

Summary and Application of Locsin’s Theory of Technological Competency as Caring in Nursing

Nursing has evolved through time and the care nurses provide must tailor itself to these changes. Today we live in a world where new technologies are used everywhere. Nurses must stay rooted in human caring while adapting to these advancements. Nursing must not move to be merely a technical practice. Locsin’s theory of Technological Competency as Caring in Nursing works to frame the relationship between nursing care and the use of technology.
Known as a contemporary theorist, Locsin’s perspective of caring and understanding human beings relates to the simultaneity paradigm. According to this paradigm people are believed to be more than just the sum of their parts. People are considered whole at all times, regardless of being sick, or if technologies are utilized on them. The role of nursing is not to fix the broken patient or make them whole but to care and know the patient fully. He sees technology as an extension of caring that enables a greater sense of knowing. The idea of knowing is a central idea throughout Locsin’s work. Knowing is a mutual process between…
