Consider a time when you were involved in a practice change, (whether you were part of the change group or a member of the staff requested to implement a change). Think about the following:
- What evidence of clinical scholarship is evident to you now that may not have been when you were part of the practice change? Or alternatively, if the clinical scholarship was evident at the time, did it aide in implementing the change? How?
- How was interprofessional collaboration involved? Was it helpful or a hindrance?
- How did the team know a change was needed?
- Add any additional reflections from your reading that may be evident to you now that wasn’t at the time of the change.
he left and right-wing extremists and everyone in between are filling the gaps with what they think they know about feminism and womanhood, and political discourse is no exception. The President of the Unites States (POTUS), no matter who is in the Whitehouse, has his or her constituency to consider while creating new laws and policies. Historically speaking, Donald Trump used to (very nearly) take a pro-choice stance, according to Richard Wolffe, in 1999 Trump was quoted as saying “I hate the concept of abortion. I hate it. I hate everything it stands for. I cringe when I listen to people debating the subject. But you still – I just believe in choice” (Wolffe). Nobody likes the concept of abortion, but to accept that it’s a choice is fundamental to the pro-choice movement and for true autonomy of woman. Through either evolution of his own beliefs or due to pressures from his constituency as leader of the Republican party, Trump has changed his position on abortion rights and aims to defund any organization that provides the service, which would extend to include Planned Parenthood (Ravitz). The constituency that would pressure such a policy and hold a large interest in the Republican Party would of course be religious organizations such as the Westboro Baptist Church and other like-minded religious groups and some, if not majority of conservative view points located in the United States. Religious groups that are fundamental in nature teach that abortion is murder, men are the heads of households, and a woman’s place is well defined within their bibles, written thousands of years ago by men designed to keep women subservient. The male supremacist culture that has been cultivated over thousands of years is the problem in which women, womanhood and a woman’s role is defined by men. The result of man defining women is the utter devaluation of feminine characteristics, which is what the feminist movements have been attempting to unravel since the first wave of feminism. The ability for women and feminists to define themselves, with the characteristics they believe matter to them, such as mental capacities in the formal education arena, duties in the household and private sectors, and their positions within the family unit are all being, in a sense, renegotiated and challenging the status quo that was laid out by men thousands of years ago. One strategy that can essentially fix the issue of the need to define women and what it means to be a feminist, is to reject the possibility of trying to define women and feminism altogether. To approach this tactic would be to deconstruct attempts at defining women wherever it may be attempted, and to educate others that there doesn’t need to be a definition. The need to define women by men stems from millennia’s old misogynistic, archaic teachings and unravelli>GET ANSWER
