Patients really do trust their Doctors!
A social research campaign through The Medical Board Of Australia confirmed that the patient/doctor relationship is in a good place.
This study was designed to help the board understand what the public expects of their doctor and what practitioners need to do to maintain their skills and knowledge. After gaining knowledge from 3,000 doctors and 1,000 members of the community they found that 90% of community trust doctors and nurses, Doctors and the community agreed effective communication was the most important thing in this relationship.
Additionally 39% of doctors and 72% of the public think doctors’ practice should be reviewed at least every five years and 40% of doctors and 5% of the public think doctors should only be reviewed if there are concerns about their practice.
