"It is important that you are comfortable as a patient and trust the doctor. It is also very important to be able to make diagnoses that you have an open, free, trusting and confidential dialogue. It is not present, so I think you should consider changing doctor," said Andreas Rudkjøbing on one of the readers ' questions.
B. T. has in recent weeks described how a number of people hit a brick wall when they tried to get help from their doctor.
Stories, backed up by a recent report from the Danish society for Patient safety. It shows, among other things, that 29 percent of all behandlingsskader due diagnosefejl.
These error costs 63 danes about the year.
"It is important to say, it is inevitable that there is an error. It is also an important part of the report," said Andreas Rudkjøbing.
the Report also shows that the errors most often occur at the beginning of an illness, where the physician examines the patient and listen to his or her story.
"Any error is one error too much, but the figures in the report are quite big numbers. I must the admit the call to action," considers the doctors ' chair.

"you Can't take a blood test on all danes once a year and check it for cancer cells?," asked him / her.

"the Vast majority of people, who feel healthy, they are healthy, and begins to examine them, you run the risk of putting a lot of time, that ends up not to be for the benefit of the patient," explained Andreas Rudkjøbing and told that research shows the same.
"the Way forward is not to test all the. Instead, it's about, that the doctors find the time and quiet to be able to listen and talk to patients, talk with their colleagues and follow up on what the patients tells, if we are to reduce the number of diagnosefejl," he said.
"It is a fight in a pressured health care system is to stop. But it is critically important," said Andreas Rudkjøbing.
He also said that politicians should continue to invest in our healthcare system:
"even though we have the opportunity to get treatment in the first class in Denmark by skilled doctors and nurses, so it is not a given that it continues like that."
He predicts an increasing old age burden:
"Some of it, threatening our health right now, is that each year, there are thousands of more patients, simply because we are in the process of becoming an ageing society," said Andreas Rudkjøbing.Date Of Update: 18 December 2019, 01:00
