On this assignment Mr. Moreno show us a video about 25 minutes and we had to listen to the words that the narrator was saying. We had to pay attention for the answers. The expectation from assignment was to pay attention to the video and finished the worksheet. This assignment is not relate from the other assignments because in science we talk about different subjects and we different things for each assignment. The point of this assignment was to learn more about the body and cells. The specifics to get an “A” was to pay attention to the video and answer or fill the blanks correctly to receive an “A”.
New data will be collected and compiled in the form of observation, staff and volunteers will observe participants, to assess their behavior and knowledge while waiting for further instructions. Observe the participants, presence while making them feel comfortable. Review the records (if some are available) to make plans for treatment. A Spanish written survey might be necessary to administer to the Hispanic community to access their perception to care and staff involvement. Observation will be made on the access of staff interaction and with their behavior amongst the participants. Review of charts (develop), records (if were maintained), training materials will be introduced.
The social and cultural barriers are illustrated. It is found that there is more misunderstanding in serving the patients that are form the other culture and those results less compliance and less satisfaction to the patients (Shouten, 2006). It is imperative for the doctors to understand that a person’s culture is not only the different in terms of dress, diet and etiquettes but the ethics and values as well (Kleinman, 2006). The first barrier is the language barrier. The barrier takes place because Mexican people generally speak Spanish and they are unable to pronounce correctly. It is evident that many Mexican have language barriers. Another barrier is the false fluency as the American doctors may have interpreted wrongly the meaning of Spanish word (Juckett, 2013). It is due to unfamiliarity with the linguistic and cultural aspects of Mexico. Doctors are unable to understand the reading and writing skills of the patient and her family. They may be unable to understand the listening and speaking skills of family. Doctors and medical care unit might have found it difficult to obtain the self treatment that generally Mexican people prefer. Other social obstacles are illegal immigration, different set of health belief and illiteracy of the Mexican family that has caused the issues for the doctors to communicate. the cultural differences between America and Mexico such as offering importance to family than work by Mexican people may not be well understood by the American
Pueblo del Sol has many strengths and weaknesses as to do all schools. Some of the strengths at Pueblo, as the staff and students call it are; strong communication between staff members, engaging activities both in and out of the classroom, parent involvement, and monthly communication between the school and the parents as well as some weekly or daily communication between certain teachers and parents. Some of the weaknesses at Pueblo include; Not enough follow through on discipline issues from administration, behavior issues throughout middle school (5-8th grades), and the lack of resources/guidance for Science content teachers.
Many researchers have used Descartes’s ideas when studying the brain, nerves and senses. When beginning with the brain we see the work from Hall, Flourens, and Gall. Hall research included the idea that different levels of behavior arise from different parts of the brain and nervous system. Flourens research included that the cerebrum controls higher mental processes. Gall was also a part of the scientists that was trying to map the brain. His work consisted of the confirmation of white and grey matter, nerve fibers connecting on each side of the brain to the opposite side of the spinal cord and fibers connecting both halves of the brain. When it came to the nerves, research done by Galvani, Cajal, and Helmholtz’s were also sought out by Descartes’s. Galvani’s research consisted of nerve impulses were electrical in nature. Then came nerve impulses in the brain and spinal cord by researcher Cajal. Finally, Helmholtz contribution to the support of Descartes’s and even the nineteenth century came the understanding of the speed of nerve impulses. Moreover, senses were also researched during this time and played in the support role in Descartes’s ideas. Fechner and Weber began some studies to understand the senses. Weber looked at the physiology of sense organs, he used experimental methods to understand them. Fechner’s included the
Introduction: sensory biology focuses on the sensory system consisting of sensory receptors that receives stimuli from internal and external environments, neural pathways conduct this information to the brain and parts of brain that processes this information. The information is called sensory information and it may or may not lead to conscious awareness. If it does, it can be called sensation. The purpose of this experiment was to conduct some experiments and observe the properties of sensory biology in the human body. Campbell, Reece; 2008; Biology text; eighth edition
Cassell argues that in modern times, doctors find it difficult to disassociate medicine and science (17). As a result, objective standards in medicine is constantly compared to ‘science’. While the end is the same, the process for both is different, a difference that must be embraced as they both lead to objective standards. He further outlines an important difference highlighting that science is based on a belief that its methods are value free…anything that happens is neither good nor bad are it simple is. However, in Cassell’s concept of medicine, the patient comes first and above all and therefore doctors do not harm and the good of the patient is unequivocally established. Science deals with theoretical knowledge and have methods that covers generalities while medicine relies on medical knowledge which is acquired constantly in the field as it deals with individuals—which unlike ‘scientific’ methods offers no universal generalities. The differences in individuals make it more difficult to have objective standards in medicine, but do not eliminate totally the possibility. It requires a special competence in physicians, one which comes with experience and not sheer luck- it is a specialty skill which allows physicians to objectively interpret and treat patients, respond to patients’ reactions to treatments, and decide on methods based on these reactions. “Scientific prediction is performative- given certain conditions, such and such will happen without regard and calendar
