6 Medicine is of all the Arts the most noble; but, owing to the ignorance of those who practice it, and of those who, inconsiderately, form a judgment of them, it is at present behind all the arts. Hipocrates

8 Dear Colleagues The monograph Challenges of the Current Medicine-4 Edition is a collection of works written by authors from many different medical centers. The chapters concentrate on some problems of therapeutic and interdisciplinary care in patient care and improving the quality of life, or the role of medical personnel in health promotion and health education. We believe that the reader will trigger the conviction, expressed words of Gordon Thomas: "In order to understand the other person, you need to understand it as if to be in its interior. You should look at his eyes, so as to see how the world is and how it sees itself. Instead of watching him from the outside, as if it were a scientific specimen should be able to stay in his world, to go into it in order to feel from the inside, as it looks for life. " For thus we should treat our patient. We should cure him, not the disease. The members of the therapeutic team must move concentration point from physical or mental symptoms of what is happening in the life of a sick person, also asking ourselves questions: whether the patient is carried out in different spheres of life? What is his attitude towards yourself and others? How to respond to their complaints? Is full of optimism and faith take the effort to recover health or reveals discouragement, sadness, mental suffering? According to Albert Camus - The disease is a monastery, which has its own rule, his asceticism, his silence and his inspiration. We hope that all readers of this monograph will find interesting topics on Medical Problems in Palliative Care, Problems of Social Medicine, Threats in Workplace' and Health Education. Prof. Elżbieta Krajewska-Kułak MD, PhD Prof. Wojciech Kułak MD, PhD Cecylia Łukaszuk PhD Jolanta Lewko PhD Emilia Sarnacka PhD
