Senza commento, di seguito riferisco una mail appena inviata a due Agenzie di Informazione: leggete, riflettete e comprenderete il perché da anni non compro giornali!
“A few decades ago, cutting-edge medicine was all going to be technical, reliant on ever bigger, better and more expensive gizmos.” Yet, he asked, “what is the benefit for an elderly patient whose health status may be regarded as technological success if at the same time that’s a therapeutic failure?”
“What we are looking at now is the era of low-intensity health care, not the big glamorous investments, not the multimillion dollar machines and the very expensive procedures, but small incremental amounts of money invested in the community, of point of care where it makes a difference.”
“I’m not suggesting that we turn back the clock,” Haggie added. “We couldn’t practise medicine the way we do without the use of modern technology.”
“At the same time, we have got to go back to the idea of putting hands on the patient and establishing physical contact in a way that cements the therapeutic, not just simply hide behind our white coats and our scrubs and vanish into the realms of the latest new machine Grassetto mio, NdR!. We have to remember what we were taught in medical school about how to talk to our patients, to listen to them, and the power of touch.”
“We are a profession, not because of how we are compensated. We profess, we espouse, an oath, that each of us has taken,” Haggie added.
