The fact that professional identities are strongly rooted in the social values also means that attitudes of the professional role bearer have significance in their professional practice, apart from transferable specialist knowledge. Decisive issues such as responsibility for health and illness are distributed between sufferers and practitioners, depending on the history and tradition of the occupations in different countries. For example, in modern societies, a trend toward more self-responsibility and a changing attitude of patients, physicians and caregivers can be observed. In some upcoming countries, in particular, the expectations and attitudes towards a job are even more fundamental.
