To begin this discussion, introduce yourself to your classmates and instructor. Briefly discuss your background, describe your professional goals, explain what you hope to gain from this course, and share what you enjoy doing in your free time.
Then, think about your experiences with the healthcare system. To continue your initial post, discuss an ethical or legal situation involving healthcare from your personal or professional life (or that happened to someone you know). Or, think about a story you heard or read about in the news recently involving health care. Address the following:
- What about that situation stands out to you? Was that person treated fairly? Why or why not?
- What was the outcome?
- What, if anything, could have been done differently to improve the situation and/or the outcome?
Reflect on how this experience influenced your perception of health care providers or the healthcare system.
