In fact, it may play a major role in identifying illness and referring the individual to an appropriate care sector. There are cultural frameworks for recognising a disease/illness through its signs and symptoms. In addition, this can be considered as an attempt of determining the reason behind illness of individual. Historical and cultural experiences have a significant impact on causally classifying illness and health by the symptoms and signs of individual body. If there is commonness of illness within the community, there might be an availability of remedy in the major process of being diagnosed. Further ahead, there is a significant need for evaluating options of therapeutic session (Conrad & Barker, 2010). More often, this is affected by the classification of aetiology. Different societies are known for having different causal description. Even though there is predominance of natural causation within western society, there are a number of other classifications of etiological factors. There can be an application of the same situation towards the societies from non- western background (McMurray & Clendon, 2015).
The graduate attribute selected for the purpose of this reflection is “demonstrating respect for the dignity of each individual and for human diversity”. The principle of respecting human dignity and diversity plays an important role for the emergence of global norms in relation with medical field (Willis & Elmer, 2007). Hence, I have always focused on this attribute. When I was given the opportunity of reflecting on illness and health from the perception of disabled individuals, I understood my obligatory responsibility towards this principle. As I appraised my efforts for advancing my respect towards human dignity, I was able to focus on my assignment better as I examined decision and social processes used widely for recognition of standards under the processes of quality. Hence, I was able to perceive my reflection in context with democratic communities. Further ahead, I used my ability of presenting realistic judgment when critically interpreting the dynamics of health and illness for disabled individual. Hence, I was successful in determining the efforts for the research as I claimed based on evidences that further enhanced the quality of my reflection paper. Finally, issues related to justification and morality are closely embedded in the belief of people that further affects their definition of health and illness. I respect the fact that every disabled individual might see health and illness differently as they might be experiencing different health issues on daily basis. This further has a significant impact on the positive or negative dimension towards health and illness. Therefore, as I demonstrated my respect for individual dignity and diversity of disabled people, I provided a better reflection on the topic selected.
