SUMMARY REPORT OF THE SYMPOSIUM ON PERSON CENTERED MEDICINE AT THE WORLD MEDICAL ASSOCIATION ETHICS CONFERENCE IN REYKJAVIK 2018
AbstractWith medical care being increasingly driven by management systems founded on cost containment, cost efficiency, and cost efficacy, doctors are becoming burnt out especially in the United States within the complexities of an insurance-based system and in the United Kingdom by narrowly based directed government policies. Doctors are increasingly unable to fulfill their ethical obligations to their patients and are becoming “disconnected” from their work environment.
