Additionally, Ben A. Williams, PhD, came by his distrust of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) the hard way: He developed a kind of brain cancer with no proven treatment.
In conclusion, there had been randomized trials of various approaches, but they were all failures, says Williams, an emeritus psychology professor at the University of California at San Diego.
Lastly, and although several drugs had helped a small percentage of patients in Phase II trials, he says, it can be hard to get hold of therapies not yet vetted by Phase III trials.

In addition, we ensure the welfare needs of animals are met by placing a duty of care on the people responsible.
The welfare of all protected animals is provided for under the Animal Health and Welfare Scotland (Act) 2006.
However, the act places a duty of care on pet owners and others responsible for animals to ensure that the welfare needs of their animals are met. We produced supplementary information in the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act guidance.
More so, we introduced the Animals and Wildlife (Penalties, Protections and Powers) (Scotland) Bill in 2019 to improve the penalties and powers available to enforcement agencies and the courts.
Lastly, the bill also introduces improved procedures for making permanent arrangements for animals taken into possession by the authorities in order to protect their welfare.

What is the connection between the Confucian concepts of li and jen (ren)?
Answer the following questions in 4-5 sentence.
1. What is the connection between the Confucian concepts of li and jen (ren)?
2. How would Aristotle and Confucius answer the question “Is it unvirtuous to live a solitary life?
How does Augustine try to resolve the Plato/Aristotle debate? Include references to the Christian texts (Jesus and Paul).
Jen and li are central concepts in Confucian ethics and form the first two of what are commonly calle d the “Five Constant Virtues” of Confucianism.
Confucian philosophy emphasizes the role of moral development in determining who is fit to govern and lead society.
As such, it focuses not only on adherence to rules and principles, but also the proper cultivation of moral character in all who would be governors.
Jen (pronounce d “ren”) is translate d into English as “humanity” or “humaneness.” It is the highest Confucian principle.
Also, people cultivated by it are humane individuals who exhibit benevolence and care toward others.
More so, they are motivate d by a deep empathy for others – what might be call ed “human-heartedness.”
According to Confucius, all people have the capacity to be people of jen or humaneness mainly because all people are intrinsically good.
This is a fundamental assumption of the Confucian worldview – that all people are inherently good and, thus, capable of operating in a way that is empathetic, humane and full of care for others.
When people are not educated or developed properly, this intrinsic quality breaks down – people become hateful, rash, uncaring, undisciplined – and chaos comes into life at every level.
Lastly, through cultivation of jen – of the capacity for empathy, humaneness, deep humanity – a truly “superior” human being emerges.

Many people use the terms purchasing and procurement interchangeably, but despite their similarities, they do have different meanings.
With this said, let’s clarify any confusion on the difference between procurement and purchasing.
Also, first thing’s first: Procurement deals with the sourcing activities, negotiation and
strategic selection of goods and services that are usually of importance to an organization.
Lastly, purchasing, on the other hand, is the process of how goods and services are ordere d.

Additionally, doctors are perceived—by patients and clinicians—as being the captain of the health care team, with good reason.
However, physicians may spend only 30 to 45 minutes a day with even a critically ill hospitalized patient, whereas nurses are a constant presence at the bedside and
regularly interact with physicians, pharmacists, families, and all other members of the health care team.
Also, of all the members of the health care team, nurses therefore play a critically important role in ensuring patient safety by monitoring patients for clinical deterioration,
detecting errors and near misses, understanding care processes and weaknesses inherent in some systems, and performing countless other tasks to ensure patients receive high-quality care.

Benjamin Hett, The Death of Democracy: Hitler’s Rise to Power and the Downfall of the Weimar Republic.
Read the whole book including the “Introduction.” Still, try not to get bogged down in all the details. Look for his main points, which are sprinkled in the Introduction and chapters.
Need a bibliography page for the sources you used which is just the textbook and the Hitler rise to power book In MLA is fine.
The year 1932 had seen Hitler’s meteoric rise to prominence in Germany, spurred largely by the German people’s frustration with dismal economic conditions and the still-festering wounds inflicted by defeat in the Great War and the harsh peace terms of the Versailles treaty.
A charismatic speaker, Hitler channeled popular discontent with the post-war Weimar government into support for his fledgling Nazi party.
In an election held in July 1932, the Nazis won 230 governmental seats; together with the Communists, the next largest party, they made up over half of the Reichstag.

Present and discuss three different ways that our ideas about animals
Select TWO questions, and answer EACH OF THEM in at least 3 full pages, but no more than 5 full pages EACH.
Remember to use your own words, and not to quote or to plagiarize other people’s words.
However, be sure to bring up points raised by authors we have read in answer to each problem.
The answers should not just be your opinion (which I expect to be a thoughtful synthesis of ideas), but should show that you read, understood, reflected on, and can apply the readings.
Note: You can choose to do either #1 or #2, but not both; you can choose to do #3 or #4, but not both; and you can choose to do one of the questions marked #5, #6 or #7, but not two of these.
Use standard formatting (Times font 12, 1” borders), and double space without adding extra spaces between paragraphs.
1. Present and discuss three different ways that our ideas about animals (or three ideas about animals that) seem paradoxical or contradictory. Pick at least one from Fudge, and at least one from Herzog.
Be sure that it is clear how each of the three ways is paradoxical or contradictory. Pick one of the three ideas:
How might someone argue that this idea is not contradictory? Do you agree or disagree with this argument? Explain your answer.
2. Both Fudge and Herzog discuss animal experimentation, and both point out the contradictions in our ideas about doing experiments on animals. Discuss the concerns of Fudge and Herzog in excruciating detail.
Does either author resolve the contradictions? If so, how? If not, why not? Do you find either author’s resolution (or lack thereof) satisfying? Why or why not? Explain clearly and adequately.
3. Discuss a psychological or anthropological term discussed in the readings, like grief, culture, fairness, or having a concept of death, in relation to what is required to attribute this term to a human.

Reorganization in health care institutions is currently the rule rather than the exception.
All health care players are attempting to strategically position themselves in the marketplace. What do these changes mean for nursing:
How can nursing best respond?” (Porter-O’Grady, 1987, p. 281).
These words written 25 years ago are as relevant and appropriate today as they were then.
During these years nursing administrators have responded by restructuring and evaluating nursing care delivery systems to meet the challenges of maintaining a
professional practice in a cost and resource constrained environment while focusing on achieving positive patient, nurse, and organizational outcomes.
Nursing in acute care is delivered under a group practice model that provides the structure and context to organize the delivery of care (Brennan & Anthony, 2000).
Various configurations of practice models have emerged that range from those that are based on patient assignment (such as team nursing),
accountability systems (such as primary nursing), managed care (such as case management),
to care systems explicitly based on professional values and ideals of autonomy, decision making and participation (Anthony, Brennan, O’Brien, & Suwannaroop, in press).
These latter models include those identified as shared governance models. Conceptually, governance models are appealing because they are designe d to
integrate core values and beliefs that professional practice embraces as a means to achieve quality care.
However, over the past several decades, administrators, researchers, and clinicians have struggle d to understand what share d governance is, how it works, and whether it in fact works.
The purpose of this article is to review representative published evidence of shared
governance and to evaluate whether shared governance has lived up to its promise and potential.
