Why are GPs so conservative in their approach to medicine?

Are they capable of thinking outside the box, or will they will be still trying to re-invent the wheel?

    Europe was open in the 40’s or 50’s with a certain medication. Before they could take it off the OK list thousands of babies were born with un-repairable birth defects costing their families un-mentionable amount to help the child.

    We need this conservative approach. These are companies out to make money and they need to be regulated for the publics safety.

    Simply put ,nowdays living in a ‘quick to sue’ society…gives justified reason for any medical professional to be extremely cautious!! Very sad~ but TRUE!
    Anyone ever see the malpractice rates physicians must face?

    Given the choice between the scientific application of a tested medical solution, or some daft old blue-rinse waving her hands around in a misguided and futile attempt to ‘cleanse my aura’, I’ll go for the former.

    MALPRACTICE SUITS, the insurance costs are driving doctors out of the profession. Another thing we have insurance companies and suit happy people for.

    Would you trust a doctor if you were seriously ill and he decided to ‘think outside the box’ to treat you, while he knew full well that there was more tried and tested method? Doctors are bound by the principles of the Hippocratic Oath, particularly ‘First do no harm’. Being a doctor has nothing to do with a conservative approach, it has everything to do with research, development, clinical governance and robust scientific application. Litigation would be even more rife if doctors fancied being mavericks and ‘thinking outside the box’. It’s all too easy to sue because of some stupid loophole (McDonalds made me fat yadda yadda) when doctors practice inside their remit.
