You are preparing paperwork for one of your clients who is
undergoing the screening process for a kidney transplant. You and your
team must decide if your client is a good candidate for a transplant.
Your supervisors note that your client has a history of alcoholism and
substance abuse and that this history could disqualify your client’s
transplant candidacy. You disagree with your supervisor and suggest that
the client’s substance abuse is no longer a problem. The team, however,
ultimately disagrees and denies approval for your client’s transplant.
You are upset and angry with your supervisor.
You now must
share’s the team’s decision with your client. You know he will be upset
and will most likely become verbally agitated. You are not looking
forward to meeting with your client.
In a 2-page paper address the following:
What are the salient features associated with this case?
a one-paragraph letter to your client summarizing the team’s decision.
Make sure to include an argument and rationale for your decision.
Write a one-paragraph letter to your supervisor expressing your disagreement with the team’s decision.
a minimum of four concepts and definitions from at least 3 of your
human services courses. Describe how you would utilize those concepts to
solve the problem.(Please note that by the
course project’s completion you must make reference to concepts and
definitions from all your Rasmussen curriculum e.g. Human Behavior,
Theoretical Service Delivery, Research, Human Sexuality etc…)
Remember, the focus of this module is being able to use neutral, objective and healthy communication.
