 Better not to know

When you meet people who are treated with imaginary diseases, crave injection of glucose, or even more fashionable cocarboxylase, the question arises: and not to blame if partially in that we ourselves are the health workers? Don't look through if in the judgment of individual patients about the disease and treatment results incorrectly conducted by the sanitary-educational work? Many doctors answer to this question.
Does the medical word deliberately, whether always it is the prevention of disease? Dedicated whether it is first of all health, in which I. P. Pavlov saw the medicine of the future? Alas, far from it.
In the clinic the patient explain in detail everything about drugs, and little to say about the regime, diet etc. there is a belief that it is in medicine, regimen, diet - Annex. In fact, the opposite.
Hardly perfect, and the system of lecture propaganda of medical knowledge. For some reason there is an opinion that a lecture on this subject can be any doctor. Not taken into account that the availability of some medical knowledge is clearly not enough. Here it is necessary skills are available to talk about difficult things, and most importantly - tact, knowledge of the psychological peculiarities of the audience.
In interviews, articles and brochures on medical topics frequently in detail tells about the latest methods of treatment and subtle ways to diagnose diseases. Whether it is necessary to present it in such doses to the population? In my opinion, this should be done in General terms. Health education should promote knowledge, which would contribute to the prevention of diseases and maintenance of health: how to guard against infectious diseases, how to adjust the weight, how to harden the body and so on
It is required to inform the population about such conditions that require timely medical care, as, for example, the initial manifestations of heart attack, heart muscles, violations of cerebral circulation, acute diseases of the abdominal cavity. In these cases, health education should help a sick person in time to see a doctor, to prevent erroneous actions of the patient or others, develop skills of first aid.
As for the subsequent stages of medical care, in particular treatment, it is the prerogative of the doctor. And only the doctor.
At the I all-Union conference on medical deontology was the Deputy editor of "Popular medical ENCYCLOPAEDIA, which was read the following letter from a reader: "we are Very grateful for new and useful book. We now treat it themselves, doctors do not go".
Can such views to generate a movement for new categories in the General press: "Useful advice on diagnostics and Treatment itself"?
Currently, patients are really knowledgeable about new methods of treatment of diseases and don't want to know the old ways of maintaining health.
I know people with hypertension who smoke, overeat, play nights in preference, looking for new "faithful" means from disease and amazed that "space-conquer, and blood pressure decrease can't." There is a tried and tested principle of family pedagogy: "Peter brings from school grades, and you are again broke the glass ball".
