Legislation "escort" Chinese medicine development

Page view

From July 1st, China's first comprehensive law, the Chinese Medicine Law, which comprehensively reflects the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine, will be officially implemented. Chinese medicine experts called for speeding up the formulation of supporting policies and regulations 

 

Insufficient policy mechanisms, insufficient resources, weak grassroots development, unbalanced urban and rural development, and insufficient inheritance and insufficient innovation are the situations that Chinese medicine is facing. “Although the Chinese medicine resources rank sixth in the country, due to various reasons, the development level and service capacity of Chinese medicine are still far from the expectations of the people.” According to Dong Mingpei, deputy director of the Provincial Health Planning Commission and director of the Provincial Bureau of Traditional Chinese Medicine, The promulgation of the Chinese Medicine Law will play a milestone role in the development of Chinese medicine in our province, and we hope that relevant supporting policies will be introduced as soon as possible.

 

Emphasizing respect for the laws of traditional Chinese medicine

 

In the eyes of the industry, at present, the implementation of the principle of paying equal attention to both Chinese and Western medicine is not in place. The development of Chinese medicine is faced with bottlenecks such as Western medicine, Chinese medicine westernization, Chinese medicine western management, characteristic desalination, and weakening of advantages. "Chinese medicine takes the materialism and dialectics as the guiding ideology, emphasizes syndrome differentiation and treatment, and pays attention to individualization. Western medicine uses analytical reduction theory as the guiding ideology, emphasizes normative standards, and pays attention to standardization. Chinese medicine and western medicine are two completely different scientific systems, which cannot be followed. The same standard is managed." Dong Mingpei said.

 

It is understood that China's current laws and regulations specifically for Chinese medicine are only the "Regulations on the Protection of Chinese Medicine Varieties" and the "Regulations on Chinese Medicine." "Not only is the legislative level low, scattered, and not targeted. The key is the Western Medicine of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Western Medicine of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The laws and regulations applicable to Western medicine can not only protect Chinese medicine, but constrain its development." Liu Jian, Deputy Secretary of the Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine think.

 

As a result, the Chinese medicine industry has shown a shrinking phenomenon in recent years. From a nationwide perspective, there are no separate Chinese medicine departments in many comprehensive top three hospitals, or only outpatient clinics and no wards. According to a survey conducted by the Provincial Political Coordination Research Group on the development of Chinese medicine industry in Fuyang and Zhangzhou, the traditional Chinese medicine characteristics of Chinese medicine hospitals are not obvious, and the traditional Chinese medicine departments in general hospitals are weak. For example, Taihe County Chinese Medicine Hospital is the top three hospitals. However, the income of Chinese medicine is lower than that of Western medicine; the utilization rate of Chinese medicine in Chuanzhou Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital is only 15% to 20%.

 

"Traditional Chinese medicine legislation can affirm the important position of the Chinese medicine industry by legal form, thereby safeguarding and standardizing its development." What makes Dong Mingpei happy is that the "Chinese Medicine Law" clearly proposes to establish a management system that conforms to the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine. The pharmaceutical industry should follow the laws governing the development of Chinese medicine. "Legislation has achieved breakthroughs in five aspects, from policy support to legal protection, to solve the uncertainties of 'people's governance'; from problem-oriented to institutional innovation, to solve the path of scientific development; from Western to Central and Western, Solved the problem of 'walking on two legs'; from department management to industry power, solved the problem of development concept; from traditional medicine to great health consensus, solved the space problem of Chinese medicine development."

 

There are many "good" folk Chinese medicines.

 

"Respecting the laws governing the development of traditional Chinese medicine and establishing a management system that conforms to the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine, the breakthrough significance in the access of Chinese medicine practitioners and the management of Chinese medicine is particularly significant." Liu Jian believes.

 

The current Chinese medicine practitioners' management is based on the "Practitioner's Law" promulgated in 1999. According to this, Chinese medicine practitioners need more than 4 years of medical school qualifications to participate in the physician qualification examination, and the examination content is generally Western medicine content. "Traditional Chinese medicine education is different from Western medicine education. 'Teacher' is the biggest feature. Many people learn TCM knowledge through the way of teachers and family members." According to Liu Jian, many people who are active at the grassroots level and have a skill. Chinese medicine practitioners only have middle school culture, and they have been diagnosed and treated for a lifetime, but they are unable to pass the examination to obtain medical qualifications. They can only become illegal medical practitioners. This group has at least 150,000 people in the country. "In fact, the vast rural areas are the 'main battlefields' for Chinese medicine services. There are no shortage of high-caliber doctors in the country. Their strength in Chinese medicine cannot be ignored."

 

"For the above-mentioned problems, the "Traditional Chinese Medicine Law" has made a huge breakthrough." Liu Jian said that the new rules for the study of Chinese medicine practitioners and those who have expertise in many years of practice have opened up the Chinese medicine practitioners through practical skills and performance assessment. New ways of qualification, and simplify the industry access procedures. After the “Langzhong” of the private sector has obtained the qualification of a Chinese medicine practitioner, it can start a Chinese medicine clinic and other practice activities by filing with the relevant competent authorities. This will strengthen the grassroots Chinese medicine service team and upgrade the grassroots Chinese medicine service. Ability is of great importance.

 

"Difficulties in unilateral preparations" have always been a bottleneck restricting the development of Chinese medicine. “Since ancient times, Pills and Dantang are all indispensable for the treatment of diseases in Chinese medicine. All Chinese medicine preparations used in clinical practice are required to obtain approval numbers, which is a great pressure for Chinese hospitals at all levels. The clinics opened are even more difficult to cross the 'threshold'." In the interview, many experts in the Chinese medicine industry said.

 

According to the current medical and health management methods, the approval of preparations must go through several procedures such as research, experiment, and audit. It takes at least three to five years for a preparation to be produced, declared, and approved for production. The cost is high, the cycle is long, and the difficulty is large. A medical institution at or above the county level needs to invest 8 million yuan to 10 million yuan to establish a preparation room in accordance with GMP standards. "Most hospitals and individuals can't afford it, which directly leads to the severe shrinkage of clinically important preparations in recent years, and many prescriptions have been lost." Liu Jian believes that after the implementation of the new law, Chinese medicine preparations will be changed from "declaration registration system" to related drugs. The “recording system” filed by the management department will effectively improve the flexibility and timeliness of formulation development, greatly reduce the development cost and promote the development of traditional preparations.

 

Perfecting the rules is a top priority

 

As an "old Chinese medicine practitioner" who has been engaged in clinical work for nearly 30 years, Liu Jian said frankly that "with the new law, the waist plate is more straight and more emboldened." The development of Chinese medicine has been incorporated into the national development strategy, and there is more law to follow. The society will also have higher recognition of the Chinese medicine industry. Previously, the "Healthy China" 2030 Planning Outline and the "Outline of Chinese Medicine Development Strategy Plan" have also been released, highlighting the new opportunities for the Chinese medicine industry and entering a new period of development. He also said that the difficulties in the development of Chinese medicine alone are not enough to cure drugs. National legislation is a manifestation of the rule of law in Chinese medicine. However, in actual implementation, specific supporting policies are equally important. It is necessary to issue implementation rules and strengthen enforcement in a timely manner. During the interview, many experts called for a number of existing policies, laws and regulations that contradicted the new law. It is necessary to carry out a comprehensive and systematic clean-up as soon as possible, and the content that does not comply with the new law should be abolished and revised in a timely manner.

 

“It is very important to support development and industry supervision.” Liu Jian believes that it is first necessary to strengthen supervision over the scope of practice and qualifications. With the implementation of the “reporting system” of practice, the number of practitioners and Chinese medicine clinics in the Chinese medicine industry will increase. It is inevitable that there will be fishermen and fishermen. Therefore, it is particularly important to strengthen the assessment and strict law enforcement. How to guide the healthy competition of Chinese medicine clinics also requires the height of the competent authorities. attention. Secondly, it is necessary to strengthen the supervision of the whole process of the source, quality, circulation and storage of Chinese herbal medicines. At present, the implementation of standardized cultivation of Chinese herbal medicines is still not in place, and the use of pesticides and fertilizers is still unscientific. The phenomenon of doping and shoddy is still prohibitive. Therefore, it is urgent to implement the relevant provisions of the Chinese Medicine Law and promote The Chinese medicine industry "brings good medicines, produces good medicines, and builds good medicines" to provide safe and effective Chinese medicine for the health of the people.

 

Liu Jian believes that the industry must be rational and treat the "Chinese Medicine Law" and cannot be fully blamed. Although the new law is difficult to give a perfect solution to all problems, it is a good start. All Chinese medicine practitioners must learn, use, and disseminate this law to promote its continuous improvement.From July 1st, China's first comprehensive law, the Chinese Medicine Law, which comprehensively reflects the characteristics of traditional Chinese medicine, will be officially implemented.
