Yes the health profession should focus more on technological advances along with nutrition and less on treating every one with the drugs. Go the natural way and you can actually increase your health. Doctors don't spend enough time learning about nutrition. If they focused on both of these elements the standard of care would be pheneomenal.
Health professions education should focus more on basic care. This is the foundation of medical care and the part that is least likely to change in the future. There should be follow up training provided that will help keep medical professionals abreast of the latest in technological advances. Spending more of their primary education time on technology would be wasteful, as the technology they would be learning about would soon be outdated and require follow up training anyway.
No, health professions education should not focus more on technological advances rather than basic care, because we can only advance to technological advances once the car providers know how to do basic care. People will always want someone to provide care and concern at their bedside when they are sick.
I do not believe health profession education should focus more on technology advances rather than basic care. This sounds like a very dangerous proposition given the fact that many places vary on the technology they use. Basic care should always be considered more important, in my opinion. If you don't know the basics, how could you provide beyond them?
