Case Study on Death and Dying The practice of health care providers at all levels brings you into contact with people from a variety of faiths. This calls for knowledge and acceptance of a diversity of faith expressions. The purpose of this paper is to complete a comparative ethical analysis of George’s situation and decision from the perspective of two worldviews or religions: Christianity and a second religion of your choosing. For the second faith, choose a faith that is unfamiliar to you. Examples of faiths to choose from include Sikh, Baha\\\’i, Buddhism, Shintoism, etc. In your comparative analysis, address all of the worldview questions in detail for Christianity and your selected faith. Refer to the end of the instructions for the paper for the list of questions. Once you have outlined the worldview of each religion, begin your ethical analysis from each perspective. In a minimum of 1,500-2,000 words, provide an ethical analysis based upon the different belief systems, reinforcing major themes with insights gained from your research, and answering the following questions based on the research: 1.How would each religion interpret the nature of George’s malady and suffering? Is there a “why” to his disease and suffering? (i.e., is there a reason for why George is ill, beyond the reality of physical malady?) 2.In George’s analysis of his own life, how would each religion think about the value of his life as a person, and value of his life with ALS? 3.What sorts of values and considerations would each religion focus on in deliberating about whether or not George should opt for euthanasia? 4.Given the above, what options would be morally justified under each religion for George and why? 5.Finally, present and defend your own view. Support your position by referencing at least three academic resources (preferably from the GCU Library) in addition to the course readings, lectures, the Bible, and the textbooks for each religion. Each religion must have a primary source included. A total of six references are required according to the specifications listed above. Incorporate the research into your writing in an appropriate, scholarly manner. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, must include introduction, thesis, abstract and conclusion is required. You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Seven Basic Worldview Questions James Sire de?nes a worldview as “a commitment, a fundamental orientation of the heart, that can be expressed as a story or in a set of presuppositions (assumptions which may be true, partially true or entirely false) which we hold (consciously or subconsciously, consistently or inconsistently) about the basic constitution of reality, and that provides the foundation on which we live and move and have our being.”* He asserts that to understand the concept of worldview, we must answer the following questions: •What is prime reality? •What is the nature of the world around us? •What is a human being? •What happens to a person at death? •Why is it possible to know anything at all? •How do we know what is right and wrong? •What is the meaning of human history? **For the Christian nurse, the answers to these questions come from the stories, themes and patterns found in the Bible. This careful study of Scripture reveals to us the nature of persons, the context in which we live and practice, the meaning of health and the impetus for nursing care. For Christians, prime reality is God, who created and sustains all things. Thus, this worldview is derived from a Christian theology of nursing.
