There are several problems we have in our health care system, but we are also fortunate to have a system in place where health care is available to all. A major issue we have is the cost of health care. According to the text book written by Sarafino & Smith (2017), the cost of health care has risen from 5% to 17.4%. Factors involving the increase can include reasons such as significant rise in individuals needing/using health care, non-insured individuals who use medical resources, and something called health care provider systems. You may or may not have a state which has one of these systems in place; I do. There is a local hospital by me who has monopolized over the state of Illinois. Central Illinois is widely owned by this hospital. Just as you may have a Walgreen’s or CVS on every corner, we have a Clinic or hospital. When these systems are allowed to flourish, they get to set their prices/cost of care, which in turn gets passed down to the patients and the insurance companies (Varanini, 2020). They even have their own insurance group. Most employers around here offer you this insurance because almost everything else is out of network. We have just recently received another hospital company, which in turn is allowing not only another option of care, but a means of negotiations on health care cost. Where there is illness and injuries, there is a need for psychologist. As our populations increases, the number of injuries and illnesses will correspond. Which leads me to another issue we are having. 

Have a wonderful day!

 Hello Ms. Floren and Class,

  In today’s world view there are many factors why  people  are having  hardship when it comes to health care, there are many factors that people are dying or  having  health issue that the health care system is facing nowadays, the rapid  rising of problems is the high cost of medical  insurance and or an individual  cannot afford to have insurance that burden them to seek medical  care. One current problem in thee health care system is the poor recognition of th problem of dementia and other mental  health problem,under diagnosis and stigma cause significant problems for individual and their families at all income level(ADI,2009),overtime,dementia in the aging population will place a massive burden on the population in terms of human and monetary resources.

Hello everyone, 

Quality of Care is one of the obvious considerations taken into count when one is looking for a doctor. However, many also settle for less quality because they think they have too. Mentally this can be so exhausting and essentially not get your needs met, “it doesn’t help that most Americans are likely to get a wrong or delayed diagnosis at least once in their life” (Medifind,2021). Whichinsurance at all. So unable to obtain quality care brings them to misdiagnosis or again delayed diagnosis, eventually driving them to end up in the emergency room accumulating more costs that they cannot afford. Being able to afford mental health services prevents many from not being able to actually get them. “To be able to provide early- stage diagnosis over all”(Dedania & Gonzales, 2019), sometimes cannot be attainable for some different races, such as immigrants and Native Americans.

Where there are benefits, there will also be dilemmas. The use of placebos in research has been an argument for a very long time. Some researchers proclaim the good of placebos, and others will argue the downfalls of using them. Perhaps one argument to view is the ethics of using a placebo. The Declaration of Helinski has

Good evening Ms. Floren and Class,

Placebo -in the form of pills that look like medicine,they are most use or seen in the health care system in terms of clinical trials. Placebo are physical intervention that are  administrated in the guise of an active treatment, that placebo effect as addictive, however, health care provides are not allowed to use placebo in actual practice with out informing patients. Placebo effect is defined as phenomenon in which people experience a benefit after the administration of an inactive substance or treatment. Placebo has no known medical effect that in most cases the person does not known that he treatment they are receiving is actually a placebo.There is a difference between placebo vs Placebo effect, Placebo refers to the inactive substance itself, while the term placebo effect refers to any effects of taking a medicine that cannot be attributed to the treatment itself.

In psychology a placebo is an inert treatment or substance that has no effect even though placebo contain no real treatment researchers found they can have a variety of both physical and psychological effects.

6) Missing =    Placebo or Covid vaccine?

Hello Tracy! That is a very good question! I personally am against the CoVid vaccine for many reasons that I won’t go into, but I can understand where one would be upset if they thought they were getting any kind of medicine and only got a placebo. Especially if they weren’t notified of the possibility of getting a placebo. In the case of the CoVid vaccine, they might actually be doing the patient a favor by giving them a placebo tho’..lol I will just be fair and tell you that I don’t trust it because it hasn’t been tested enough nor has it been around long enough to see what if any side effects short or long term that might arise from it and I also don’t trust the ingredients and the ethics of the ingredients. Just my personal views, but I do understand we all do what we feel we have to do and what we feel is best for us and our loved ones.
