A cry of despair and hope for a radical change Automatic translate
MOSCOW. The publication of Corpus published a book by Anna Starobinets "Look at him."
The circulation of Anna Starobinets’s book “Look at It,” which was published in mid-February of this year, is 2000 copies. A negligible amount with a need hundreds of times larger. It should be included in the list of compulsory literature for students of medical schools and specialists who upgrade their qualifications, and stand on the shelf with experienced luminaries. In order for something in this life to begin to change for the better. Starobinets is a well-known journalist and writer, author of thrillers, fairy tales, anti-utopias. Her usual horror genre unexpectedly invaded her own life in connection with the need to terminate the desired pregnancy for medical reasons.
Having learned about the diagnosis of an unborn child incompatible with life, having made attempts to understand the situation, to eliminate the likelihood of error, Starobinets went through the same circles of hell as millions of her compatriots. Those who are forced to endure rudeness in antenatal clinics, rush about in search of a good and sensitive doctor who will help to cope with any problem or mitigate the impossibility of solving it. Both in private clinics and in public institutions, she had to face almost zero level of empathy, lack of psychological support and basic respect. Mental trauma of a woman losing a child, depression and broken families are not in the orbit of the interests of a considerable number of specialists working in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. In the German clinic, where she went in the final phase of the sad story, she also does not leave a chance for a happy outcome. But they do it as delicately as possible, helping to survive the loss, to avoid feelings of guilt, to see the light at the end of the tunnel. There are no other norms for communicating with patients for the Aesculapius there.
Starobinets comes to the disappointing conclusions for domestic medicine. The highest professionalism, talent and asceticism of a considerable number of doctors are not able to make the soul of Russian medicine big and the heart just. The lack of a systematic approach to the treatment of complex diseases very often negates the efforts of individual geniuses. The book Starobinets is a cry of despair and hope for radical changes. And invaluable support to those who find themselves in such a tragic situation.
