Trust is a key factor in health care

Description: High levels of trust in healthcare have been associated with many benefits, including a perception of better care, greater acceptance to recommended treatment and adherence to that treatment. Trust is identified as one of the essential components of a doctor-patient relationship. Patients are more likely to open up and disclose information if they trust their healthcare professional; the quality of interaction may improve, resulting in greater patient autonomy and shared decision-making.
