교회활동으로서 의료사업의 역사적 고찰
Christian Ideals in the History of Medical Care
Tae Jun Lee
Catholic Medical College, Korea.
Probably because the Renaissance period tended to be overglorified, people have even come to equate the "Middle Ages" with the "Dark Ages". But some writings have recently expressed positive views on the "Middle Ages" in history. The Christian teachings from the Middle Ages concerning the sick and the poor have undoubtedly contributed to forming the ideals of modern medical care. Today's medical facilities run especially by churches are expected to continue their services based on a biopsychosociomedical model rather than on a biomedical mode.
Key Words: Church, Diaconia, Medical care empathy, primary health care, Biomedical model, Biopechisocionedical model
