ABSTRACT: Oregon's Death with Dignity Act (ODWDA) has been in effect for eight years. The United States Supreme Court recently decided that Oregon's law did not violate the Controlled Substances Act. Other states may consider a law similar to Oregon's through legislative process or ballot measures. Although social work is not mentioned in the law, our profession interfaces with the terminally ill, particularly in hospice. Eighty-seven percent of those who have used the law were enrolled in a hospice program. As a pilot project, this article explores conversations that the authors have had with patients, families, team members and health systems in hospices and oncology settings under Oregon's unique environment. The following four themes emerged from these conversations: (1) mental health, education, choice; (2) team concerns; (3) family issues; and (4) values, ethics, restricted conversations and professional struggles.Health progress (Saint Louis, Mo.) 01/2006; 90(6):7-9.

ABSTRACT: Though "good people' are important for the life of any organization, it is a myth to think that enough good people will make for a good organization. To break free of this myth, a health care organization, which is made up of numerous persons and groups, ought to be regarded as a single, unitary actor in society. When seen as a single actor, the organization's systems for carrying out its mission can be better assessed and improved if necessary. If the organization's systems are not functioning as they should, then even good people will be hindered in their efforts. It can be said, therefore, that organizational ethics takes seriously the idea that every Catholic health care organization is a moral actor needing to reflect carefully on what it does in relation to its employees, leaders, and the outside community. In an environment where the organization's actions are reflected upon, and its character is carefully and continually shaped according to its mission, individual persons in that organization will be better equipped for making and carrying out good decisions that are aligned with that same regard for the mission.Health progress (Saint Louis, Mo.) 01/2006; 87(6):24-7.

Article: The most vulnerable among us.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Although many of the more than 17 million refugees and asylum seekers worldwide are injured or hungry, many more of them suffer from psychological harm because of torture, psychological violation, forced displacement, rape, and extended deprivation. As a result, many resettled refugees in the United States are at significantly higher risk of developing mental health problems due to both the trauma from which they fled and the challenge of adjusting to their new lives. Because of its emphasis on the individual, the Western model of psychotherapy may seem foreign to many refugee populations. In many cultures, people disclose deep mental anguish only in the company of a few trusted individuals. Some refugees may also have difficulty confiding in medical professionals because they have learned not to trust authority figures. In order for mental health therapy to be successful with refugees, an appropriate interpreter-one who matches not only the language of the client but also the ethnic and political identity-is crucial.Health progress (Saint Louis, Mo.) 01/2005; 86(1):22-5, 60.
Article: Who will care for the caregivers?[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Research shows that stable leadership provided by a nursing home's director of nursing (DON) is the foundation of good quality. Conversely, a high DON turnover often results in a quality meltdown at all levels. A recent study, seeking to uncover the root causes of DON turnover, looked at 103 DONs working in Virginia nursing homes. Although DONs overwhelming affirmed their role and agreed that they were overall satisfied, a majority said they would not choose to be a DON again or recommend the role to others. Not surprisingly, low staff retention rates, mounting administrative responsibilities, growing regulatory and legal constraints, and unrealistic time commitments were the leading causes of frustration. Given less time to spend on the responsibilities that lie at the very heart of their mission-direct-care and clinical issues, quality improvement, family relations, staff mentoring and professional development-DONS are likely to experience burnout unless long-term care owners and managers reconfigure their role.Health progress (Saint Louis, Mo.) 01/2005; 86(6):37-43.
