Ethics Essay

Postby laurenb88 » Sat Jul 25, 2015 2:48 pm

Just wondering if anyone else is on the Ethics essay? Am I the only one left completely bewildered by this?

I've read through all the learning materials, the assessment criteria etc so many times and still I haven't a clue what I'm meant to be writing about! :crazy:

I've been staring at this for 5 days now and only have another 9 until my deadline. I keep hoping taking a break and coming back with a fresh mindset will help me and I'll have a 'eureka moment'...it isn't happening! Haha! My tutor is on annual leave so can't turn to her at the min, I'm either losing my marbles and missing something or I've lost my brain completely! :wtf:

Any clues on where to start or how to go about finding some information that is easy to digest and will give me some clues would be sooooo appreciated right now! I think I'll be having a mental breakdown of my own and needing the restraint I'm meant to be writing about at this rate :lol:

Thanks in advance,

Lauren

Hi Lauren,

I am also doing the ethics essay, have you thought about doing a mind map or a spider diagram - and just doing some background research on the essay question?

May give you some insight to what you need to write about.

Hi,

I was on the old pathway and our essay was on ethics and mental health so I'm not sure if your's is the same. Basically I explained about the human rights act that dealt with mental health, why this could be infringed both legally and ethically, then I found a case study from the news to apply the theory to and then in my conclusion I said whether using the case study human rights were impacted.

Is yours on a similar topic?

Mines on the ethics of using restraint to treat the mentally ill. Sounds pretty similar. I've been doing lots of online research over the weekend, reading journals and articles and found lots of articles and found lots which I think will help. Now I just have to figure which will best assist me with my essay writing and somehow cover everything in only 850 word! lol :crazy:

I'm going to sit down this evening and have a good brainstorm, get all my ideas mapped out, all the resources and start from there. Hopefully it all begins to make more sense then! x

Sounds like you have made a good start. Keep it simple and to the point (easier said than done), so you could find what human rights deal with restraint of the mentally ill, the law behind when it can be used, research that with backs it up and questions it I'm guessing there is research about the impact it has on the person, what ethical theories say about it and apply it to a case study?

I know that for my essay I found drawing a spider chart helpful as I was at risk of writing myself into a black hole.

Good luck :thumbup:

Hi

My academic writing skills essay is on the ethics of using restraint to treat the mentally ill. The main bit I am struggling on how to structure my essay. Obviously I will have an intro and conclusion, but my main body. How do I structure all my writing into paragraphs so that I talk about the ethical theories and restraint and make them link and flow? Do I do a paragraphs about ethics and another about restraint. Or do I put into two sections - one about why restraint is ethical and another about why it isn't ethical. Help! :crazy:

Thanks in advance x :)

Mine followed this kind of thing....
defined ethics, mentally ill and restraint.
explained different ethical theories
explained forms of restraint
applied the ethical theories to a theoretical case study
touched on human rights
reported death statistics
discussed polarised feeling about the subject in the medical professions
concluded that that it is not possible to conclude

Hope it helps :crazy:
