Trust and distrust between patient and doctor
MetadataShow full item record
To trust someone is to have expectations of their behaviour; distrust often involves disappointed expectations. But healthy trust and distrust require a good understanding of which expectations are reasonable, and which are not. In this paper I discuss the limits of trustworthiness by drawing upon recent studies of trust in the context of defensive medicine, biobanking, and CPR decisions.
