Who wants to be a psychotherapist, studying medicine or psychology. Subsequently, a training in psychotherapy follows. Only medical Doctors and psychologists are allowed to treat patients who suffer from a mental disorder to an illness. The methods are the same – no matter what was the basic training. There are only a psychotherapy.
the Same benefits and equal training, equal rights, one would think. However, it is not so. While medical psychotherapists – because of their specialist title psychiatrist-called – to open a practice, and independently of the basic pension Fund are allowed to settle, and not allowed the psychological psychotherapists. A practice may open, but the funds do not pay your therapies. Or only when you let a psychiatrist do that and in its practice. The psychiatrist prescribed the therapy and supervised.
Many psychologists feel this delegation model as tedious. And as unworthy. They want all the Doctors psycho-prescribe treatments – also in-house doctors. And that you no longer have to be employed by psychiatrists in order to get money from the cash register. In March submitted a Petition with almost 100,000 signatures to demand from the Federal Council more powers in the Form of an Assembly model.
More freedom of choice for patients
That has alarmed the psychiatrist – so much so that you can carry the long-festering conflict in the Public. Erich Seifritz, President of the Association of Psychiatric chief doctors and chief physicians, warns, the current "medical newspaper" and in a NZZ-guest comment with harsh words in front of the demand of the psychologists. She was a "great danger for the psychiatric-psychotherapeutic care in Switzerland". For example, a "cost explosion-threatened by expansion in the Volume" – refers to a rising number of patients, if more Doctors could prescribe treatments. In addition, the quality of treatment would suffer under the new System, because the control by the psychiatrist lacked.
it sounds so, as a recognised psychologist would be federally, neither sought nor capable of, high-quality therapies – and to control these appropriately. And as if the psychiatrist today with nothing other than quality assurance deal.
Stay the patient numbers. First of all, the therapy would need to be arranged still medically. Secondly, it May be that the Numbers would rise. But would that be necessarily bad? You could look at it instead from a cost point of view, from the patient's point of view – this is in the discussion almost. The sooner a family doctor, a gynecologist, a pediatrician notices that someone needs help, the better it is for the person Concerned. Uses a therapy of late, it is more complex – and thus also for the General public to be more expensive. It high follow-up costs will incur such as a hospital stay. Perhaps the new model would be so only in the short term more expensive.
mean More independently on the basic insurance settlement at the end of the psychotherapist for the patient more freedom of choice. Nothing can be wrong. Because then, the trench not more between the Professions, but good psychiatrists and psychologists as to run here, bad psychiatrists and psychologists.
