THE APPROACH OF MEDICAL MALPRACTICE PHENOMENON WITHIN THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK OF MEDICAL SOCIOLOGY
Journal of Community Positive Practices, 2019, issue 4, 46-79
The medical malpractice represents a phenomenon which is more and more debated in the Romanian society; its connection with a series of other phenomena as those of the migration of physicians or decrease of physiciansâ€™ credibility in the eyes of the public opinion can represent individual research subjects. The medical care has become a more complex process both by the social and economic developments (digitalization, technological development, demographic changes) and by the awareness at social level concerning the weak points and lacks the care systems. The higher costs of the medical care, the change of the physician - patient relationship, the ease access to online information, the unequal distribution of resources for health, the social inequity concerning the cares for health represent subjects from the area of medical sociology. The sociological approach of processes and phenomenon related to the medical treatments represent a useful systematic approach for their understanding or for the development of some adequate social policies. The objective of this paper is the identification of the ways in which the phenomenon of medical malpractice is represented in the theoretical field of sociology.
