Finding Potential Conflict Zones
Discovering your “unconscious prejudice” or possible areas of contention that may emerge while working and engaging with people of diverse cultural ideas, backgrounds, and social/personal values is crucial when creating a plan of care for clients, including Amal. Before dealing with diverse or vulnerable customers or patients, it is crucial to become aware of our prejudices and comprehend the effects of unconscious bias.
Examining your own ideas, values, attitudes, and perceptions is the first step in overcoming unconscious prejudice. Review the data at the websites below before continuing:
The impact of unconscious bias in healthcare: How to recognize and mitigate it
Utilize the details on the aforementioned websites to research and detail your responses to the following questions in a Word document. Your own words must be used exclusively in all responses. At least 250 words should be included in your response.
1. Describe the two forms of prejudice and define the word “bias.”
2. Describe how being aware of prejudice can help you identify resources that are appropriate for your client and make appropriate referrals (in this case, Amal).
3. Taking a look at the chart you made in Week 2 for identifying client characteristics, list at least two (2) key distinctions between you and Amal. Religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic class (SES), and other variations may be among them. Explain how prejudice could be connected to these discrepancies.
In several branches of research, conflict of interest has generated debate and worry. There has been a resurgence of interest in the discussion due to the rising reliance on funding from non-governmental sources. The scientific community and the general public have a stake in preventing conflicts of interest in order to produce quality, impartial science. It is difficult to design a system in which scientific judgments are made in an ethical way devoid of conflict and personal prejudice. Therefore, the course focused on how to recognize, control, and, in certain cases, resolve the disagreement.
Interest conflicts are commonplace. Conflicts of interest in and of itself are not always a failure, but rather a description of a collection of events that might appear in many contexts and take many different shapes. Typically, they are predicated on scenarios where there is a dependence on the opinion of an outsider with extremely particular professional experience.
The use of that judgment should further the interests of a party, who might be an institution or, on a larger scale, a person (such as a patient in a doctor-patient relationship). The judgment that the expert owes the client, patient, or institution might involve specific recommendations, although it frequently only entails information interpretation for the receiver (the party to whom allegiance is owed), who is a client, patient, or institution does not have the necessary expertise to understand the information without assistance
