There are many types of employees within a healthcare organization. You have full-time, part-time, temporary, and contract staff. According to the IRS, an employer is required to withhold income taxes, Social Security, Medicare and unemployment taxes for each employee but not for an independent contractor (Mostoller, 2012). Some might consider it better to have independent contractors because you save money on benefits and other withholdings.

For this discussion question, take a position on whether or not you believe the savings in cost outweigh the potential for harm to a patient by someone who isn’t vested in the company. In preparing your response, ensure that you properly in-text cite all sources used in the support of your stated positions and the example or examples you chose to utilize. The response needs to be a minimum of 250 words. Also, you will need to include the references at the end of your posting.

In Belgium, where euthanasia has been legal for people over the age of 18 since 2002, the government is considering an amendment to the law to include children. This is something that no other developed country has permitted (Belgium). The same bill would offer the right to die to adults with early dementia (Belgium). Advocates argue that euthanasia for children, with the consent of their parents, is necessary to give families an option in a desperately painful situation (Belgium). However, opponents have questioned whether children can reasonably decide to end their own lives (Belgium). In the last decade, the number of reported cases per year has risen from 235 deaths in 2003 to 1,432 in 2012, the last year for which statistics are available (Belgium). Doctors typically give patients a powerful sedative before injecting another drug to stop their heart. Only a few countries have legalized euthanasia or anything approaching it. In the Netherlands, euthanasia is legal under specific circumstances and for children over the age of 12 with parental consent (there is an understanding that infants, too, can be euthanized, and that doctors will not be prosecuted if they act appropriately) (Belgium). Elsewhere in Europe, euthanasia is only legal in Luxembourg. In the U.S., Oregon is the only state that legalized physician-assisted suicide. Assisted suicide, where doctors help a patient to die but do not actively kill them, is allowed in Switzerland. Is it ethical for healthcare professionals to support the practice of assisted suicide/euthanasia? Regardless of your personal view on the topic, please provide an argument which supports, and then opposes the practice of assisted suicide/euthanasia. Be certain to support your positions with credible evidence.

In preparing your response, ensure that you properly in-text cite all sources used in the support of your stated positions and the example or examples you chose to utilize. The response needs to be a minimum of 250 words. Also, you will need to include the references at the end of your posting.

The Sociological Imagination

Based on your reading of ‘The Promise’ from C. W. Mills’ The Sociological Imagination, write a response of no more than 600 words to the following:

Using some examples from contemporary life, explain the distinction Mills makes between personal troubles and public issues. Do you think that people still feel trapped in the twenty-first century in the same way that Mills described in the mid-twentieth century?

This task is designed to assess your understanding of the text as well as your ability to apply the key ideas in a discussion of more contemporary examples and situations. You will need to demonstrate an understanding of Mills’ concepts but you will also need to communicate your own ideas and develop your own argument. The second part of the question in particular requires you to form and explain your own opinion, having shown an appreciation for what Mills was asserting.

While you are not required to use additional sources for this task, you may find it helpful to draw on other sources to substantiate your claims and illustrate your examples (eg. you could use ABS statistics to illustrate a social trend).

Remember, there is no single ‘correct’ answer to this task – strong responses will demonstrate a solid understanding of Mills’ ideas, include clearly explained contemporary examples and offer a well-argued position on the matter of being ‘trapped’. Your response should take the form of a short essay and adhere to formal academic writing conventions, including Harvard style, in-text referencing (no footnotes).

This Assessment Task relates to the following Learning Outcomes:

Have developed an understanding of a range of theoretical perspectives on social life from the 19th century to the present.
Have developed a broad understanding of how the ‘sociological imagination’ can be used in thinking about social issues and trends.
Have developed a broad understanding of research techniques, materials social science epistemology.
Be able to read, summarise and apply essential sociological ideas to the study of contemporary life.
Written and verbal expression allowing the synthesis and clear explanation of complex ideas.
