For an ethics the medical and social-education assistance and intervention for persons with disabilities (English version)
In the present study we aimed at presenting the image that the present-day Romanian society has formed on the way in which disabled persons correspond to the ethical norms, in view of their integration and normalisation within society. The group of subjects considered in the research was composed of higher education graduates: 250 specialists (doctors, psycho-pedagogues, social workers) that work in institutions for the recovery and rehabilitation of persons with various disabilities (intellectual, sensorial, motion disabilities) and 250 non-specialists (engineers, economists). The questionnaire used during the research comprises five insulating negative items and five integrating positive items. The results of the study showed differences between the specialists’ and non-specialists’ perception on the application of ethical norms in the medical and social-educational activity (hospitals, recovery institutions) as well as in the educational activity (schools) in the treatment of persons with disabilities, while the factors and means for improving the interaction with these people showed direct correlations in the subjects’ view. The conclusions of the study emphasised a better perception of the specialists compared to the perception of the non-specialists concerning the application of ethical norms in the medical-educational activities involving persons with disabilities. The perception of the subjects regarding the methods and the factors for improving the interaction with the persons with disabilities indicates on top position the development and the realisation of some joint programs, considering that every member in the community has to be actively involved in the successful integration of these persons.
