There has been tremendous advancements in the realm of genetic testing, especially in the field of autosomal dominate diseases. Major breakthroughs in this field have produced ethical and moral dilemmas for physicians; conflicts between a patients’ autonomy vs. beneficence and nonmaleficence (doing what’s best for the patient), which has made counseling patients who have severe genetic disorders like Huntington’s disease very difficult. Do you tell a patient that he/she will likely die from a fatal disease? Do you tell the relatives? Do you choose the benefits of notifying the patient over the Psychological harm it may cause? These are so many questions and ethical considerations that arise for a provider when genetic testing predicts a serious, life-threatening disease.
One question of particular interest for this case is whether or not a child should be informed or not of his increased genetic risk of a fatal disease, which sparks another round of ethical and moral consideration. Should parents have the right to tell their child that he/she is likely to contract a fatal disease? Does the provider have a duty to inform?
Many legal arguments can be made to support a child’s right to decide whether or not they want to reveal genetic testing, and many arguments can be made to support the right for a provider to withhold the devastating results of the fatal disease because of the potential adverse effects. Despite the legal impacts, the decision to inform or not will always vary depending on the ethical principles of the provider. These decisions will be influenced by the provider’s moral and ethical structure.
As a provider, faced with such circumstances as the ones found in the case, I would not inform my patient of the potential risk of a fatal disease. I wouldn’t tell my patient’s friends, relatives, or favorite furry animal of the critical findings because I…...

Although, there are different levels of law enforcement; including local, state and federal, there requirements and process are similar.

Law enforcement agencies not only hire officers, their goal is also to retire them as well. By doing so, they depend on career development programs.

Administrative Law

...Davis and Nachura, an administrative body is any governmental organ or authority, other than a court or legislative body, which affects the rights of private parties, through rule-making and adjudication. An administrative body is described as a department, bureau, office, commission, authority or officer of the National Government authorized by law or executive order to make rules, issue licenses, grant rights or privileges, and adjudicate cases; research institutions with respect to licensing functions; government corporations with respect to functions regulating private right, privilege, occupation or business; and officials in the exercise of disciplinary powers as provided by law. An example is the establishment of the Commission of Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) by article 216 of the 1992 Constitution of Ghana. Due to the fact that administrative bodies or agencies possess discretionary powers, they will inevitably make use of administrative guidelines or administrative rules that supplement rules in laws and statutes. These administrative rules are the soft law every organization applies in decision-making . These soft laws are employed by administrative bodies as rules and regulations which are persuasive and influential on the administrative behaviour of the various agencies. These soft laws used by the administrative bodies for the purposes of guiding the official interpretations of policies formulated by the administrative body, to regulate......

Administrative Law

...Specific courts with judicial review power must annul the acts of the state when it finds them incompatible with a higher authority (such as the terms of a written constitution)[1] as it was seen in the recent case of Nigel Kalonde Mutuna and Charles Kajimanga, where the two High Court Judges applied for leave for Judicial Review in respect of the decision of the President of Zambia to appoint a Tribunal to investigate the Applicants and to suspend the applicants. An Ex-part order was granted by Hon. Mrs Justice F. Chisanga to the applicants for leave to apply for judicial review. The leave granted to the applicants operated as a stay of the decision of the President. Therefore judicial review is a High Court procedure for challenging administrative actions. Delegated legislation may also be challenged. It allows individuals, businesses or groups to challenge in court the lawfulness of decisions taken by Ministers, Government Departments and other public bodies. These bodies include local authorities, the immigration authorities, and regulatory bodies and some tribunals. In the case of R v HM the QUEEN in Council, ex parte Vijayatunga[2], Mr Justice Simon Brown ( now Lord Brown of Eaton Under Heywood) observed that “judicial review is the exercise of the court’s inherent power at common law to determine whether action is lawful or not; in a word to uphold the rule of law”.[3] Judicial review is a type of court proceeding in which a judge reviews the lawfulness of a......

Police Officers

...and Safety Issues of Police Officers in Canada, the United States and Europe: A Review Essay © Jennifer R. L. Parsons June, 2004 2 Introduction Police officers play a pivotal role in North American and European societies. They are involved in many aspects of North American and European life. Officers’ involvement ranges from general, daily, proactive patrol activities to specific criminal activities such as narcotic investigations. Because there is such a wide range of activities involved in police work, there are many health and safety issues surrounding policing as an occupation. Police officers may be exposed to different health and safety risks in their occupation. For example, police officers are at risk of assault and homicide; the dynamics of policing as an occupation creates opportunities for them to experience many psychosocial hazards such as stress, suicide, sexual harassment, and discrimination. It is important that research be completed on the health and safety issues of police officers in order to identify hazards and identify ways to reduce risk. The failure to identify and solve health and safety concerns of officers has potentially serious consequences for the health and well being of officers and their families. These consequences can include depression, divorce, suicide, and disease. Not addressing the health and safety issues associated with policing may also impact the general public. For example, if an officer is stressed or fatigued......

...Administrative Ethics Jennifer Coetzee 11/26/12 HCS/335 Susan Morgan Administrative Ethics: There are so many issues in today’s society of administration in the health field. As technology progresses more and more issues continue to arise. Among the many issues in current administrative ethics the healthcare field faces today the most common issue that I found in my research is the issue of confidentiality and privacy of the patients. Even more today than there has been before keeping patients records private has become more and more difficult. There are different levels of information that can be affected. According to the administrator protects information that is private, secret or privileged. This means that not all information is medical information about the patient but also information about the payroll or other contact information about the patient and the staff. This also would include information the patient does want their doctor to know about them which would be more privileged information and things they do not want their doctors to share with others. One of the main issues with keeping such information confidential according to the article Administrative Ethics and Confidentiality/Privacy Issues on is that most often younger people are working in offices that do not respect or have accurate knowledge of the privacy laws such as HIPPA. Hippa is a government list of regulation and rules to abide by in any medical......
