March 21: Who Can Patients Trust?: Legal Responses to the Loss of Medical Professionalism

Trust between patients and health professionals is vital for patient well-being, managing health care costs, and maintaining medical professionalism. Yet the United States ranks 24th out of 29 countries for the percentage of adults who agree that doctors can be trusted. Moreover, new models of health care delivery that emphasize teamwork and coordination of care over time are changing the relationship between physicians, non-physician health professionals, and patients, raising concerns about who is ethically and legally obligated to act in the patient’s best interest. This lecture explores the role of law in promoting patient trust and the changes in the law that are necessary to protect patients in the emerging health care environment.
