Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


This film was put to us by our elective course of general medical education. Its core and purpose is to experience “medical humanistic care”. Naturally, after reading it, we have to write an article to make a difference. In fact, our general elective courses here are very watery. We have had one. There is no quality at all, and the homework has never been dealt with. However, because this course is specially selected for my interest, and I do have feelings in this regard, I decided to write well.

In fact, the plot is not complicated. The protagonist Jack McKee, a cardiovascular surgeon who has exquisite medical skills and is very arrogant and scoffs at the so-called humanistic care, suddenly learned that he had a tumor in his throat one day. In this way, the identity suddenly reversed, from a doctor to a patient. Of course, from a workaholic doctor to a patient who obeys instructions, his whole life and feelings change. The most important thing is that as a patient, he realized how complex the hospital’s admission and treatment procedures are and how they bring inconvenience to patients, how the doctor’s superior attitude and lack of care and love hurt the patient’s psychology, and how weak the patient is in front of the doctor who lacks love and responsibility. This includes his own experience in the treatment process, as well as what he learned during his communication with a patient friend, a female patient with stage IV brain tumor. Of course, these are accompanied by his rediscovery of his previous absent husband and absent father, as well as his relationship with colleagues, and his rethinking of the relationship between doctors and patients. These experiences have made Dr. Mai a great change. He learned to care about others, think in other places, and think from the perspective of others; His care for his sick friend Joan, his wife and children; More importantly, as a doctor, he paid more attention to the feelings of patients. During interrogation and operation, he learned to say comforting words to patients. Later, the first lesson he taught interns in the hospital was to let them wear the inpatient clothes and turn them into patients, because only after experiencing the pain and weakness of patients can they really think of patients, Heal the sufferings of patients and become a qualified doctor.

Specifically, how did the transformation happen? Before cancer, Dr. Mai’s philosophy has always been “cut in – Repair – come out again”. Instead of wasting time caring for a dying person, it’s better to improve surgical skills “. like most other doctors in the hospital, he is superior and lacks care. In fact, lack of care and even feelings have even penetrated into his life. Workaholic, lack of communication with his wife and children for a long time, and his feelings are cold. Of course, we can naturally think that this is also an important inducement for him to get cancer. However, when he becomes a patient himself After the role, everything is different. In the hospital where I have worked for many years, I realized all kinds of pain and depression as a patient for the first time. The female doctor who treated her was quick, skilled and quick in diagnosis, but also lacked communication and care. Dr. Mai was treated just like her patients in those years. The female doctor mistook the patient, so that she was wrongly perfused, and the indifferent attitude of the medical staff in charge of radiotherapy brought pain to Dr. Mai. Accompanied by the cumbersome and inconvenient medical procedures of the hospital.

The storyline with the female patient suffering from brain tumor changed Dr. Mai from another angle. Joan, whose life has not been long, talked with him several times, making them friends, understanding and pity each other. When Joan’s illness was not treated in time and even thought it was a medical accident, Mai told her the truth from the doctor’s point of view; When Mai was discouraged, Joan took him to the roof and told him her story to cheer him up; Mai had a whim and decided to take Joan to see the performance she had always wanted to see. When they didn’t catch up, they enjoyed the beautiful scenery in the desert, hugged and danced with each other and encouraged each other. Mai finally made up his mind to operate after the failure of radiotherapy, and soon Joan died. Mai once went to see Joan in the middle of the night, but when Joan invited him in, he hurried away again. I think he realized that Joan really didn’t have much time left. He shouldn’t waste time by selfishly asking her to help himself. In this way, Mai can be said to have completed the preliminary transformation, caring for a person and transposition thinking. This is the beginning.

There is one detail worth noting, that is, the doctor who Dr. Mai finally found to operate on him, Dr. Wei. This doctor is one of the few doctors in this hospital with a strong humanistic care complex. When he expressed his concern for Mai and expressed his willingness to operate on him, Mai replied with disdain: “I can take good care of myself. “Now that Mai can sincerely come back to apologize and ask for help, it also shows that Mai has changed.

Mai summoned the interns, gave each one a patient’s robe, asked everyone to put it on, and let them experience the feeling of being a patient. When a group of nurses came in with a cart of examination and treatment equipment and couldn’t help but say to check them, Dr. Mai completed his regeneration journey.

The topic of medical humanistic care has a long history. Modern medicine emphasizes the scientific nature of medicine, and more and more people are divided into parts and components like machine systems. If there is a problem, they can repair it. The great defect of doing so is to ignore people as an integrated life with emotion and thought. It is far from enough to treat diseases purely from pathology for the recovery of the whole health. In particular, the author personally understands that psychological factors are extremely important in the whole process of disease cure. A comfortable, safe, intimate and caring treatment environment will be a cleaning agent for health recovery. Moreover, with the development of human medical science, it is still impossible to cure or even treat and alleviate most diseases, so care is more important. American doctors have a saying, “sometimes to cure, often to help, always to comfort”.

In contrast, our domestic medical care in China is very unqualified in this regard. Take me for example. I have been weak and ill since I was young. I have been running back and forth between hospitals. Few doctors can say more words to children or parents to express sympathy or concern. Sometimes the consultation time is very short; When I was ill, I was very uncomfortable. I never asked the patient about his pain or tried to alleviate his pain. Sometimes even if parents asked repeatedly, they didn’t pay corresponding attention. But there are also good doctors. There is one. I can call her grandma at her age. She is from the first hospital. It’s a pity that she didn’t remember her name. She is very attentive to each of her small patients (Pediatrics), and will come to the ward several times a day; When talking to you, I will smile, chat with you, and observe the discomfort, such as how to relieve the headache, cool the fever with physical methods, and pay attention to what to tell parents in life. Doctors like this are really rare. No wonder her awards and honors hang all over her office.

It was 10 years ago. Now it is estimated that it is more difficult to find such a doctor. He has been looking at the acne on his face for a few months. Almost every time he goes to the clinic, the doctor hardly looks up and writes the medical record. He observes your lesion and is finished. He doesn’t listen to your good description. After that, he directly prescribes the medicine without emphasizing the name of the disease. The whole process can be completed in less than 3 minutes, Sometimes even the whole process is over. I don’t know what the problem is and how to deal with it. It seems that the doctor thinks it’s good to write a prescription for you.

Of course, there are many reasons, and the development of medical treatment can not be achieved overnight. China’s national conditions are complex. Many things affect the whole body at the same time, so we can only take our time. But take your time with direction and speed.

In terms of objective hardware factors, people in large hospitals are suffering, and the time and energy spent by doctors on each patient will naturally be reduced, sometimes even the treatment will be reduced, let alone humanistic care; Secondly, the income of doctors is seriously out of proportion to their pay. There is a saying that “doing the work of selling white powder and holding the money for selling cabbage”, so when it comes to caring for patients, there may also be a lack of motivation and psychological imbalance.

In terms of subjective software factors, the quality of our doctors needs to be improved, and there is a lack of humanistic education in medical colleges.

Of course, there is also the problem of the general environment, which is not something we can decide, so I won’t repeat it.

The most important thing is that the author, as a current medical student and a member of the future doctor team, has realized this problem. That’s it. We should have this awareness first, and then practice our medical humanistic spirit in practice, return to the essence of medical care for people and “humanism”. We will pay more attention to this problem in our future study.

Hee hee, it’s the first time to write and publish film reviews completely. I found that my generalization ability is not strong, and I can’t summarize the plot one by one in order. I just wrote some changes of characters in general; Some places that need plots also refer to other people’s works (special thanks to Ruixue of Sina blog), but they are really written by their own heart, and the reference is no more than 10%. In addition, the author is still looking at the film as a student. His views are inevitably not deep enough, original, follow the crowd and so on. After several years of clinical experience, I believe I will have a different experience.
