Deontology and scientific-technical progress

The rapid development of modern scientific medicine and health practice that is associated with scientific and technical progress, causes and characteristics of medical deontology in this period.
At the present time in the practice of the physician during the examination and treatment of patients used a huge number of complex medical devices, manufactured various laboratory and instrumental investigations. Wrong understanding of the physician of his role in the diagnostic and treatment process can alienate doctor from the patient, narrowing contacts between them. In order to eliminate this danger, it is necessary to combine the application of achievements of science and technology with a humane attitude to the patient, with high professional culture of the doctor and his clinical thinking.
Another feature that characterizes modern medicine, is the presence of a large number of narrow specialties. From the treating doctor in these conditions requires the ability to integrate data from "narrow" specialists, to evaluate them. If the doctor is not, he may in certain cases be turned as if in Manager to guide the patient from one specialist to another. In this case the patient stops to trust the doctor, to his knowledge, a doctor must be involuntarily liable for the sick, dividing it between many specialists.
No less important feature of modern medicine is that the treatment of the patient in a number of cases, especially in severe extreme States, is not one doctor and a team of specialists. From each of the doctors involved in treating a patient, you need the ability to work in a team, to integrate their knowledge and actions with the knowledge and actions of their colleagues.
An important part of medical deontology is the doctrine of iatrogenic disease. Originally iatrogenia (disease caused by the doctor) was seen as a disease or complications from the illness caused by the negative influence of the statements of health workers on the psyche of a patient. Currently, the iatrogenic disease is considered functional and organic diseases, complications, consequences, causes, which is erroneous behaviour or action of the doctor in the process of diagnostics and treatment of the patient.
