Licensing, Credentialing, And Self Regulation

Anytime a patient sees a health care provider he or she assumes that individual is a competent professional meeting standards set by profession. From a public perspective, the medical profession in the United States has traditionally been the quintessential example of a self-regulated profession, invested with deep public trust and granted the privilege of self-regulation through credentialing (Cerenzia, 2014)....   [tags: Health care, Health care provider, Healthcare]

Supporting Arguments for Parent Licensing

- ... In addition, if we did come up with a criteria, it would be too generalized (in order to include different cultures) that it wouldn’t be able to differentiate between good and bad parents. This overgeneralization would allow bad parents to be inadvertently licensed. These are strong objections to Lafollette, but I believe there is a solution to them. The objection of distinguishing between good and less than good parents is wrong because Lafollette states in his paper that his proposal “…does not demand that we license only the best parents; rather it is designed to exclude only the very bad ones” (Lafollette 1980, 190)....   [tags: Hugh Lafollette's paper, good-bad pareting]

A conclusion that came out was that the open-source licensing regimes are no longer confined to idealistic or academic programmers but have led to the creation of diverse licenses that provide for different possibilities and accordingly are more or less compatible with copyright protection. In chapter five the most important legal controversies around open source software licenses from a contractual point of view were put under scrutiny. This analysis estimated that the uncertainty around the contractual nature of open source licenses should be considered minor due to the fact that the courts, after a period of skepticism, have shown a positiveness to apply and enforce any license of sof...   [tags: software, intellectual property rights]

The Argument for Licensing Parents Needs Revisions

- In the essay Licensing Parents, LaFollette argues that the state should require all parents to be licensed (182). Though LaFollette considers some theoretical and practical objections to his claim, he gives no particular attention to how parenting could be precisely defined as potentially harmful to children, what specific competence would be required for parenting to be done safely, and how reliably such competence could be determined. In this paper, I maintain that, since LaFollette’s argument does not provide an adequate clarification of the definition of harm and the attributes of competence, his argument needs serious revision....   [tags: harmful policy, objections, punishment]
