The uniqueness of our organization is cooperation of several professions in different academic degrees from different countries, specially with patients organizations. This multidisciplinary form of SOSORT can give us hard and long work but on the ether hand it will raise the issue to a high level. We will take into consideration The internal ethical code of each group. To find our original code for mutual organization work. For example: We can have a rule which the benefit of the patient is preferred in any case although professional competition is legitimate but is dune with integrity and cooperation as consultations when needed.
