OUTOMURO, Delia. BIOETHICS’ TEACHING IN MEDICINE: BASIS. Acta bioeth. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.1, pp. 19-29. ISSN 1726-569X. doi: 10.4067/S1726-569X2008000100003.
If you reconsider the medical practice’s pattern, you immediately notice the need to form a general practitioner with an integral sight of humankind and medicine, one who would be able to criticize and judge the problems that daily practice involves. It is essential to incorporate bioethics in all degrees’ curricula; this would develop a fundamental strategy in order to improve the quality of sanitary attention. It would also develop a medical practice within a frame that would emphasize an integrated attention over the specialized one and it would favour the "person" and not the illness. Arising from the university strategies should be planned to bring bioethics close to the community, thus helping dialogue and supplying symmetric conditions for a dialogue of all the social groups involved in bioethics’ conflicts.
