Question 3137

Question 1. Imagine a child (Carlos) becomes very ill and the parents rushCarlos to the hospital. Once there, the parents explain that they are Jehovah’s Witnesses and they refuse the physicians recommendations for a blood transfusion. Consider the articles that you read by Catlin and Rosam. What might each other say should be done in this situation? Compare and contrast each other—pointing out recommendations they might agree on and where they differ. Be specific. 2. In our learning activity on Dax Cowart, many of you argued that if Cowart was treated today things would be different. Imagine that Dax Cowart experiences his accident today and is taken to the hospital. What do you think might happen? Briefly explain what happened in the past, but focus on an argument with evidence for how treatment might differ today. Please draw on cases from our text or other relevant class materials to explain your ideas. When I evaluate your answer, I will be looking for how well you explain and justify your answer using class materials. I will not be looking for you to have a particular view—although the position for which you argue must be plausible given current practices, laws, and other information presented in the text.  3. Give the details of the “Willowbrook Study” described in your reading. How is the issue of informed consent relevant to this case? (Be sure to talk about making sure consent is free, voluntary, and informed, etc.) Draw on the readings to help justify your answer. 4.

Describe two specific criticisms of the study that Ramsey gives in his article, “Judgement on Willowbrook.”  5.
