Teaching of medical ethics in basic and continuing medical education

Teaching of Medical Ethics & Deontology in the Countries of Europe

Based on the recommendations put forth in the CP's Statement of Madrid that the national medical associations (NMAs) should take the initiative with regard to education in medical ethics, the protection of human rights, and particularly with regard to measures for the prevention of torture, the CP Subcommittee on Medical Ethics and Deontology has conducted a study on Teaching of Medical Ethics in Basic & Continuing Medical Education.

This study stressed the importance that all doctors have a thorough knowledge of medical ethics and deontology by organized instruction as an integrated part of basic and continuing medical education and medical practice.

This study further emphasized the particular responsibilities which must be assumed by the doctor practicing in those sectors in which human rights could be particularly endangered; the practice of medicine within the penal system, military medicine, and humanitarian medicine.

The doctors of the member states of the European Community, meeting in the CP, invite the countries of Europe, regardless of their cultural, philosophical or religious differences or variations in their educational backgrounds, to promote and respect the principles of medical ethics and the defense of human rights as set forth in the Statement of Madrid. Therefore, the CP hereby

- recommends that all medical associations concerned establish committees of medical ethics and deontology to initiate and promote pre and post­graduate training in medical ethics and the protection of human rights.

- to propose to the relevant bodies education in practical application and educational guidelines in human rights and ethics for doctors taking account of the situation of those doctors whose practice entails special ethical and deontological responsibilities.
