1.       According to functionalist theory, good health and effective medical services are way of progress in society. The people which are legitimately are considered sick should play the role of sick and give detailed information to doctor. The sick people should not consider own self responsible of disease because everybody do not want to be ill. There should be a hierarchy between doctor and patient but friendly environment is also essential.  Doctor should give advice and patient should follow the instruction of their physician.
