Communication Training for Obtaining Informed Consent for Medical Research
- 22 Downloads
Medical practice requires constant interaction between health care providers and those who seek care at these facilities. In addition, modern medicine also requires a strong focus on continued research for the benefit of mankind. It is estimated that the doubling time of medical knowledge in 1950 was 50 years; in 1980, 7 years; and in 2010, 3.5 years. In 2020, it is projected to be 0.2 years—just 73 days . According to an estimate, students who join medicine in 2010 would experience three doublings before they complete the course, and those who join in 2020 would experience four doublings . Medical research on either patients or other subjects/volunteers has, therefore, become an undeniable existential fact of medical practice.
