Care pathway: the Cnom press conference
Dr François Arnault, president of the Cnom, Claire Siret, president of the public health section and René-Pierre Labarrière, president of the professional exercise section, reaffirmed the institution’s position on this question before the journalists.
“The presence of the doctor from the start of the care pathway, during the diagnosis, is essential”, reminded Dr. Labarrière. The Order fully supports the delegation of certain tasks, within care teams coordinated by the doctor. However, “this delegation of tasks must make it possible to free up medical time, not to circumvent or replace the doctor, insisted the president. Even in the event of difficulties of access to doctors, the examination by the doctor in the entry into the disease is essential, only he can make a diagnosis. The Order has refused, refuses and will refuse any derogation from this principle, in the primary interest of patients. »
The president also recalled that the institution was in favor of the 4th year of general medicine, professionalizing and supervised with an internship supervisor, but opposed any form of coercion and the distribution of 4th year students into under-dense areas. , which would have the main effect of discouraging young colleagues. “We must better consider medical students and interns, who bear witness to major professional suffering,” assured the president, who recently received student representatives.

- Use the tool made available to doctors by Health Insurance: a dashboard of their unvaccinated patients or those who have not yet received a booster shot.
