Improving the Humanistic Quality of Doctors is the Fundamental Way to Prevent Disputes
With the development of China’s market economy, the commendable doctor-patient relationship has become increasingly weak. What’s more, the doctor-patient relationship has become hostile and litigious. Along with the reform of the medical and health system, the doctorpatient relationship has not improved, and patients’ complaints have not decreased. The lack of a widespread tradition of professionalism complicates China’s efforts to create a health care team that is trusted by both the government and the public. Medical education should respond, for example, training in clinical communication skills is an essential part of medical education. But skill alone is not enough. The value of “Patient centered,” “help the weak” and “reverence for life” are the solutions to prevent disputes.
