 I uploaded the book too 

There are two parts to this module.
A total of 2 response posts is required for this module. 

Module 5 part 1:

In this session, we describe rights and responsibilities for employees in the medical fields.

You are welcome to add another source, but feel free to use just the Atlantic article and Pozgar.

Atlantic Monthly article on new models for treating employees:

Pozgar: Chapter 11–employment issues


Question 1:
Use your text and one other reference for your initial post.

For the first half of this semester we have been dealing with some very difficult issues. In employment, there are some ethical dilemmas we as health care workers may have to address as employees.

With this question I am putting a positive spin on this issue. 
-Tell the class of one positive handling of employee rights and responsibilities by your current or recent employer.
-Then, explore one or two things you would look for in a new employment situation.

And, remember, as you move into management roles, you have an increasing say in improving employee environments!

Module 5 Part 2:

Question 2:
You have two choices for this question to focus on for your initial posting.

First, Look at these documents about consent:
This first is the National Institutes of Health’s patient information page on patients rights and links for them to explore what informed consent involves.


The second is the Illinois Medical Patient Rights Act


Now, watch the short video from Consumer Reports on security issues with personal devices.


And read this Washington post article about employers collecting FIT BIT data:


Then, select ONE of the following for your initial posting. Use our text AND one of the links above as references for your post.

Choice 1:
Take an example from another profession (ex. criminal justice, psychology, nutrition, etc.) where a citizen/patient/client refuses to accept a recommendation that would benefit them. How would you respond, in your role as a police officer, psychologist, nutritionist, etc., knowing that a refusal could likely harm the individual? Should you challenge the refusal? (You should take into account the basic concepts of ethics AND the profession’s code of ethics, practice law, state regulations).

Choice 2:
Identify and examine the issues of informed consent in our on-line culture. We click “Accept” to lines and lines of legal language for every app we use.
Does your electronic FITBIT gather data on your health and activities? 
Does your server log how often you search health care sites? 
With whom does the company share this data? 
Will this lead to employers knowing about our activities? 
Does the concept of informed consent become muddied by the legal and technical language in our check boxes? 
If you select this choice I encourage you to include a few lines of the consent language from the chosen technology.
