Prospective Perspectives of Professionalism Teaching in Emergency Medicine
1Emergency Department, ACEM FSFB UAndes, Colombia
The world is not enough. Technology is overwhelming us and modifying our presettings about everyhing. Clinical human relationships in Emergency Medicine are expected to be respective of patients and physicians autonomy, protected by professionals in different ways through entire attending process. Service, vocation, autocritical thinking, communication, hard and soft skills, interactions with respect of personal space, touching hearts and souls in between bodies, while protecting oriental culture which is plenty of traditional moral values and social principles against unintentional correspondence to economical/bussiness vision based on technical development issues, influenced more by external factors and occidental culture in terms of globalization. Professionalism is also responsible for advocacy, hence teaching the best possible professionalism is a must. To design new tools to develop qualified service that include prospective improvement of specialty recognition. Teaching is like leading, by example. We have to think about the future like walking a mile in another man's shoes. Professionalism has to be included in new technologies for diagnosing and treating patients in a holistic way. I propose an integrative manner to include oriental and occidental advancing techniques in a professional mix to teach emergency medicine.
