Crisis in doctor-patient relationship

Making sense of the trust deficit between doctors and patients

In December, 2017, I wrote an editorial for Medical Dialogues imploring on reasons for trust deficit and what can be done to bring the trust between doctors and patients back. The four broad themes include:

1. Time Value: Utilising the small amount of time available for consultation
2. Encouraging transparency
3. Emphasis on prevention
4. Encouraging follow up
