Paper , Order, or Assignment Requirements

Start by reading and following these instructions:


  1. Quickly skim the questions or assignment below and the assignment rubric to help you focus.


  1. Read the required chapter(s) of the textbook. Some answers may require you to do additional research on the Internet or in other reference sources. Choose your sources carefully.


  1. Consider the discussion and the any insights you gained from it.


  1. Produce the Assignment submission in a single Microsoft Word or Open Office document. Be sure to cite your sources, use APA style as required, check your spelling.


Professional Development Assignment Description (40 points):


There are 2 parts to the assignment. Please place both assignments into one paper. The different parts should be clearly marked so your professor knows which question you are addressing.

1.Write three thesis statements on the topic of your synthesis paper, one of each type (explanatory, mildly argumentative, and strongly argumentative). Explain when and how you would use each type of thesis statement.

2.Here we will practice grabbing the attention of the reader. Please write two paragraphs. Write one attention-grabbing introductory paragraph FOR mandatory staffing, and one attention-grabbing introductory paragraph AGAINST mandatory staffing.


Write your thesis statement and introduction (one paragraph). The first page of your paper will be the title page, followed by your abstract page (it has its own page!), and then the next page will start with the introductory paragraph.

Last Synthesis Paper


We, “the Healthcare team, act as patient advocates. We support and protect them. We often find ourselves in ethical situations that conflicts with our personal and professional morals.” The right to die is one of the most sensitive requests granted to a dying patient. It should be recognized that “patients have the right to make their own decisions in order to preserve their own wishes, dignity and respect.” One of these choices involves the right to die which is a very sensitive issue (“physician-assisted suicide”, 2011).

Who are involved in the decision making?

The right to die and the right to live are personal choices. A healthcare team or physician granting the dying patient their request of what kind of care and dignity they would like to be treated should not be mistaken as murder or suicide, but should instead be seen as “mercy killing” or “Euthanasia” which is the act of painlessly putting to death or allowing to die in order to prevent any further suffering.”
