Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on clinical training i & practitioner development Paper must be at least 1000 words. Please, no plagiarized work! According to the Society of Homeopaths’ Code of Ethics, respecting patient is important to “foster and maintain the trust of individual patients and the public” (Sec 1. 1.4). Also, the code insists that one can disclose the confidential information ‘only in clearly defined circumstances’ (1. 10). This involves the practitioner’s discretion. Since the patient in the given context is suffering from depression, the practitioner has to assess if the situation involves any risk factor. For instance, highly depressed patients are often vulnerable to suicidal attempt. If the patient is diagnosed for such symptoms, it is advisable for a practitioner to disclose certain things to someone who would take care of the patient (Sec 2. 8, 14). On the other hand, if the person who referred the patient (here wife) is not aware that the client is suffering from depression and the situation does not pose any risk, the practitioner should not disclose confidential information. Since family environment plays a major role in cases like depression, the practitioner can help the couple by giving some common tips that may bring about some positive changes to their living conditions.
B. The Society of Homeopaths’ Code of Ethics has set some personal boundaries for the registered or student clinical member in respect to their relationship with patients. As Section 3 (28) insists, they are not expected to “enter into an intimate relationship with a patient, student or supervisee”, for such relationship is abusive in itself and ‘undermines the relationship of trust’.
Hence, in the given context, the member should not accept the patient’s offer. However, refusal must not hurt the person too. The member has to be a bit creative in this regard.
