Perceptions of Healthcare Providers on Trust in Physicians
- 48 Downloads
Trust in physicians is perceived differently by the community compared to healthcare providers themselves. While the community laid more emphasis on communication, behaviour, comfort, personal involvement and competence, the healthcare providers emphasized on competence and minimizing errors are the priority. This reflected the difference in thinking about physician–patient relationships among physicians and the community. These aspects are described in this chapter.
