Dialogue on medicine

Dialogue on medicine is interesting section-study with popular understanding and analysis of facts, statistics, generalizations. It is conceived as a dialogue between doctors and patients, since the relationship is the concept of two-way. It is impossible to consider the ratio of doctors to patients in isolation from the relationship of society and patients to doctors.
About the attitude of the doctor to the patient's written a lot, but on the obligations of the patient in relation to the doctor and medicine, write and speak a little.
I want to have the idea that "to become a doctor easier than to be a doctor", entered deeply into the soul and doctors, and those preparing to enter on the path of medicine, and those who turn to us for help.
The section is devoted to relations between patients and doctors in the conditions of scientific-technical revolution, as well as the problems of medicine that most attracted the attention of the population at the present time. Discusses the impact of the growth in the number of doctors and so-called feminization of medicine, free medical care and mass media, increase of the share of older persons. Special chapters are devoted to the controversial issues of rational lifestyle, neurosis, sexual culture, medical errors, psychology doctor when he is sick.
