Striking a Balance: Navigating Ethical Complexity in Healthcare: A reply to Mandal, Jharna; Ponnambath, Dinoop Korol; Parija, Subhash Chandra

Page No. 01-03

 Abstract: Background: Medical ethics is a rational area of moral philosophy that addresses probable outcomes and disputes in duties and obligations. There are two schools of ethics that focus on decision-making: utilitarian and deontological. While in the utilitarian method, outcomes define the means and most benefit expected for the greatest number of people, in the deontological approach, outcomes/consequences may not only justify the means to attain them. In this paper we explore the idea of striking a balance proposed by Mandal J., et al (2016) between two very strong and conflicting ethical approaches (deontological & utilitarian) viewpoints while making ethical decisions in the healthcare industry and focusing on real-world implementation challenges of these ethical approaches. We argue about the practical implication of “balance” as well as the limitations of “Dual processing theory of moral judgment”. Objectives: The objectives of this commentary are to critically analyze the concept of balance between utilitarian and deontological perspectives in ethical decision-making within healthcare and to highlight the challenges it poses in practical implementation. Conclusions: In conclusion, it is emphasized that striking a balance in healthcare ethics is important yet difficult, necessitating a dedication to compassion and honesty as well as a sophisticated grasp of ethical reasoning. In order to provide patient care that is both ethically sound and patient-centered, healthcare practitioners work to integrate utilitarian and deontological principles while taking into account a variety of contextual elements.

Preparation and Evaluation of Diclofenac Sodium Loaded Liposomal Hydrogel in the Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Page No. 04-15

 Abstract: In the present research, it was proposed to provide topical delivery of diclofenac sodium. Diclofenac sodium will be encapsulate in liposome and further loaded into a hydrogel and delivered through topical route. The lipid film hydration approach was used to create diclofenac sodium liposomes, which were then characterised by vesicle size, zeta potential, and entrapment effectiveness. The pH of the generated liposomal gels was within the permissible range of 7.0-7.2. The spreadability of the gels was assessed using slip and drag characteristics and was found to be between 10.45 and 12.32 gm.cm/sec. F1, F2, and F3 spreadabilities were determined to be 10.45±0.075,12.32±0.042 and 11.75±0.049 gm.cm/sec, respectively. The viscosities for F1, F2, and F3 were determined to be 1870±25 cps, 1895±33 cps, and 1875±21 cps, respectively. The percentage of cumulative medication (diclofenac sodium) released from F1, F2, and F3 liposomal gel formulations was 98.15%±17, 98.72%±2.4 and 96.27%±2.7 respectively.

 Abstract: Elbow pain (EP) is a major health risk among salon workers. Salon workers confront a more significant number of occupational issues. Due to the overuse of muscles, work-related EP is common in occupational workers, especially salon workers. This study aims to raise public awareness about issues such as EP caused by overuse of elbow muscles, protect workers from dangerous health concerns, and determine the prevalence of EP in salon workers of Lahore. A cross-sectional study design was used to conduct this study in Lahore. The study population included male and female salon workers aged 18 to 45 years. Non-probability purposive sampling was used. A sample size of 78 female and 76 male salon workers was calculated. Patient Elbow Questionnaire and visual analogue scale were used in this study. Data was collected from different areas of Johar town, Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Data was analysed using SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) Version 21 for Windows 10. The prevalence of EP in salon workers of Lahore was 71.4%. Out of 154 workers, (28.6%) workers have no pain. Most of the workers have mild pain, which is (37.0%); workers with (32.0%) have moderate pain, and only (1.9%) have severe pain. There was a high prevalence (71.4%) of EP in salon workers., 50.6% in females and 49.3% in males. The average intensity of pain was moderate.
