HA415 Unit 7 discussion

 Depending on one’s personal experience in obtaining health care, or one’s view of the role of physicians in society, of law as a tool for social change, of the scope of medical ethics, or of the United States’ place in the broader global community, the no-duty principle might seem appropriate, irresponsible, or downright wrong. Imagine you are traveling in a country where socialized medicine is the legal norm, and your discussion with a citizen of that country turns to the topic of your countries’ respective health systems. When asked, how will you account for the fact that health care is far from being a fundamental right rooted in American law?

Discussion; Peer-Reviewed Article

Peer-reviewed journals are scholarly journals that publish original research or writing. According to a Cornell University website, (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.”The main purpose of a scholarly journal is to report on original research or experimentation in order to make such information available to the rest of the scholarly world.” Thus for this and all future assignments, be sure that the article you select is an actual research article rather than simply a literature review or general interest paper.

Go to the Hunt Library, (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. and use EAGLEsearch to find an article on a topic of interest that falls within the subject area(s) of your degree program. Be sure to select the “Scholarly & Peer-Review” filter option on the left of the screen (following the initial display of results). Using the research cycle in Chapter 1 of the text, describe how the selected article outlines/describes each part of the cycle, focusing on the research methodology. If it is lacking in a part of the cycle, tell what is missing and what could be done to fill the gap. Your post should be approximately 500 words.
