English Abstract

The amendment of Article 82 of the Medical Care Act has its historic significance. The Ministry of Health and Welfare is optimistic in the project. In the future, the identification part of medical negligence needs to assess whether it breaches medical due care or exceeds reasonable exercise of professional clinical discretion. But for reducing defensive medical care, reducing the source of litigation and enhancing the harmonious physician-patient relationship, we still need to actively promote other non-litigation mediation mechanisms, and complete the medical accident prevention and dispute resolution law, so that the mechanism of mediation goes further. It is also necessary for medical care institutions to establish an internal risk event management and notification mechanism, and conduct root cause analysis for major events, and propose improvement plans so that other hospitals can learn from each other quickly to thoroughly improve the physician-patient relationship, thus create a harmonious medical environment, and improve quality of medical care.
