sustaining the ecosystem. The second point will be discussed as an extension of the first point. In support of my first claim, I will offer two reasons. Supporting Animal Rights would hinder both process of understanding diseases and the prevention of unforeseen harmful effects of new treatments, and there are no alternative methods that can completely replace experiments on animals.
The following case study report focuses on the planning of care from case study part A. Emily was an eight year old girl living with two chronic and complex illnesses; type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and Crohn’s disease (CD). The importance of guiding principles delivered by the registered nurse (RN) used to plan nursing care within the health care setting will be defined and examples will be given that relate to Emily and her experience. A discussion of the overall role of the RN in the management
Prevention consists of the measures that are implemented to prevent occurrence of a disease or a condition and are directed towards eliminating or minimizing the impact of disease and disability. Prevention, being an emerging concept, calls for a lot of attention because the health of any individual is determinant of any other activity they carry out. It is, therefore, important to evaluate the concepts of prevention as used in the nursing profession. Significance of concept Prevention started
the passive recipient and the doctor, an active agent that “fixed” their patients. ( source). New developed models since then, such as the biopsychosocial model, show us that care focuses on many factors. The model demonstrates understanding of how suffering, disease, and illness can be associated by many factors seen at the different levels in society and the medical sciences (source). Caring for each component is important to the healing process. In mental health nursing, as stated above, mental

bowel diseases affect millions of Americans every year. While their causation has been connected to the nervous system for quite some time, recent research has also suggested that these diseases may be caused by abnormalities in the enteric nervous system. The enteric nervous system is found in the intestines. It has more neurons than the entire spinal cord, and it provides neurological signaling between the central nervous system and the intestines. (Furness, 2011). Inflammatory bowel diseases include
because there are a lot of potential complications that can be faced if it is not handled. Becoming obese during childhood can result in obesity later on; it can also impact the quality of the child’s life; and children also become more susceptible to diseases later on. Due to the statistics that are shown for the growing rate of childhood obesity, it is wondered if childhood obesity is a result of parental neglect. The current debate is what can be done to help childhood obesity. If indeed it is a result

health threats were primarily a result of infectious and communicable diseases.However,recently in developed countries,health threats are now posed by diseases in which lifestyle play a role in the causation and or management of illness.For instance,the modifiable risk factors for coronary heart disease,a leading cause of disease burden are tobacco smoking,high blood pressure and high colesterol level which are eventually related to health behaviour and lifestyle(Barkway,2009).
medical and science visionaries who poured hours and months into this project could clearly see how genomics would ultimately advance medicine. There are medical advances in the diagnosis and treatment if cancer, (cancer is basically a genetic disease). Genetic findings are guiding treatments for 4000 common diseases like the blood thinner clopidogrel, which is prescribed to prevent platelets from binding inappropriately, thus causing strokes. There have been multiple discoveries of rare genetic
