Case study Lucia, Elena, and Dr. Bhandari:
Hannah, the school counselor at Cargill Academy, volunteers for Habitat for Humanity. There she met Lucia, age 32, and her husband Martin, who are also volunteers. Hannah and Lucia have become friends.
Lucia’s grandmother Elena had come to live with Lucia and Martin about five years before, when Elena’s husband died. Lucia has expressed concern to Hannah about Elena having gotten lost coming home from the daily walks to the park that she so enjoyed. On one occasion, Martin and Lucia had gone to look for Elena and found her two miles away walking in the grocery store parking lot. On another occasion, the police had found Elena wandering and had asked around to find out where Elena lived. Lucia and Martin were alarmed when the police brought her home. They are concerned about the possibility of Alzheimer’s disease and are afraid to leave Elena home alone.
Hannah referred Lucia to Dr. Bhandari, a specialist in aging and memory.
Once Elena learned her granddaughter was planning to take her to the doctor, she was very upset because she hadn’t been consulted first. Also, Elena didn’t have any bothersome symptoms and decided there was no reason a doctor needed to see her. She felt that all she needed was more sleep.
Lucia and Elena arrived at the doctor’s office and the nurse brought them back to the examination room. Elena was displeased, but allowed the nurse to take her weight, pulse, and blood pressure. Once the nurse was finished, she left the room and Dr. Bhandari came in. When Dr. Bhandari realized that Elena did not understand much English, she turned and spoke directly to Lucia. Lucia struggled a bit in understanding what Dr. Bhandari was saying as she spoke with a thick Indian accent. She did understand enough to know that she wanted to order some tests for Elena. Neither of them explained the tests to Elena. Elena was furious and wanted to go home.
Consider the individual, family, cultural beliefs and expectations, and ethical issues the individuals must think about as the people in the case interact with each other. Consider the medical professionals’ roles with the patient.
After completing the assignment preparation study in Week 4, you will work with your teammate(s) to write a 6–8 page paper, in which you and your teammate(s) first summarize the ethical issue and then construct an ethical analysis based on the application of ethical principles and current psychological research. You will use research findings to strengthen the support of your analysis. You will then formulate an action plan to address the problem.
In summary, teams will write up a persuasive argument and plan to resolve an ethical dilemma. Analysis of the ethical dilemma, application of psychology principles, support for the course of action, and ability to work as a team using critical thinking skills are the key areas of focus for this assignment.
**This is a group assignment. I’ve attached my previous paper (which needs to be used as well) and an email correspondence between my partner and I. The email shows how we divided the work. I need to write the intro, write about the psychological ref, Campinha-Bacote model, and NAHQ code of ethics**
