Finding Proper Ethics of the Biomedical Research for a Better Basis of the Relationship between a Physician and a Patient with regards to Requirements of Modern Science and Technology


Medical activities, which are connected to biological interventions in human organism for curative purposes or in the interest of optimal (or at least normal – in case of restitution interventions) functioning of its psychological and somatic functions, are one of the practical fields of interest of the Ethical Theory. These theories can shortly be referred to as Bioethics. This young field of scientific guidance to research is developing at such a fast pace, because of the fast development of biotechnology and the possibilities to use it, that ethics can barely keep pace in evaluating the means of contemporary biomedicine. Thanks to this development, biomedical interventions, which allow manipulation with the “deficiencies of nature” in an unprecedented way, are possible. Questions arise with regards to not only the possibilities, but also with regards to intentions which lead to discovering these possibilities. Therefore, we would like to look at the experience of several experts in the field of ethics and biomedical research, who are trying to find the possibilities and boundaries of biomedical research and ethical means of evaluation of the acts of physicians, with better understanding of the goal of medical care on one hand and the view of the relation between a physician and a patient in the whole social context of healthcare in a modern society on the other hand.
