Your professional values. A few people
put their interests or the interests of a third party before the interests of their
patients. The industry needs to demonstrate through
that it is capable of upholding its values ​​and is committed to doing so to meet this challenge. Supporting a strong and transparent self-regulatory system will be a key component of this effort.
Marketing: In recent years, the market mindset has expanded influence to many fields beyond the previous field, including government, universities, and industry. Medical care has become a major industry in which
doctors play a central role, and commercial interests, whether private or public,
can force doctors to compromise their responsibilities to patients, research subjects, and society. The likelihood of
doctors and medical associations being involved in conflicts of interest situations is increasing. Commercialism
can undermine nursing ethics and clinical independence by reinterpreting healthcare as a commodity and a doctor-patient relationship rather than a trust relationship. The
profession has an inherent opportunity to resolve conflicts of interest and reaffirm its
‘s main obligations and dedication to the patients it serves.
Consumerism: Doctors strongly support the right of
patients to make informed decisions about their medical care
. However, CMA Code of Ethics
requires doctors to recommend only those diagnoses and treatments that they believe are beneficial to the patient or others.
Procedure
. Among the popular
media and online advertisements,
may have a lot of health information and advertisements. Inaccurate or poorly understood. Going to extremes,
consumerism will not only damage professionalism, but also damage the well-being and social interests of
patients.
Industrialization: refers to the increase of
division of labor and specialization in the provision of
medical care, so that the provision of
medical care may be fragmented.
In the medical field, there is increasing pressure to improve efficiency and optimize cost savings. Although these may be important goals in the broader healthcare context, we must ensure that they do not negatively affect the doctor-patient relationship.
Seize opportunities and respond to
challenges
Individual physicians must protect, enhance and promote
medical professionalism, reflecting
professional medical values ​​in their practice and contributing
to organized medical efforts to maintain and improve
the ethics of the nursing, clinical autonomy and
self-regulation…
