The Ethics of the Doctor – Patient Relationship "Trust"
The doctor–patient relationship is a vital part of health care and the practice of medicine. This understanding and the relationship forms one of the foundations of contemporary medical ethics. The most important part of a consultation/ treatment procedure is where the patient express immense confidence in the competence of their physician and must feel that they can unburden in him or her. For doctors, the formation of a good rapport with a patient is important for carrying out the diagnosis.
