About this book

This book offers an easy-to-read, yet comprehensive introduction to practical issues in doctor–patient relationships in a typical low- and middle-income country setting in India, examining in detail the reasons for erosion of trust and providing guidance on potential research areas in the field. It strikes a balance between empirical work and theoretical normative analysis, while adopting mixed-method research in exploring important constructs in the doctor–patient relationship, such as trust, solidarity, advocacy, patient-centeredness, privacy, and confidentiality. Since the concept of trust has direct implications for the ethical practice of medicine, the book is a valuable resource for academics and researchers in the field of medical, clinical, and applied ethics.
