Trust –in the physician – is defined as a bizarre relationship between the two partners where the trusted person is willing to accept his own vulnerability in front of the behavior of the one in whom he invests trust. Trust arises from highlighting the credible and benevolent behavior that we recognize in the person we invest with trust (Doney & Cannon, 1997). The level of trust expansion is correlated with the patient’s dependence on the physician as a professional service provider (De Wulf, Odekerken-Schröder, & Iacobucci, 2001). From the perspective of the patient-centered model, Chin (2001) emphasizes the legitimacy of the patient’s personal experience with a high degree of respect for his autonomy.
Patients are empowered to take responsibility for their own health, and the results are generally positive. From the part of physicians, the model highlights qualities such as: sensitivity, empathy and care. Trust in the doctor increases the chances of therapeutic adherence, and the opinion is expressed in this respect that some patients require confirmation of treatment received from other specialists, from their prescribing physician, before accepting the proposed treatment. The central element of the patient’s relationship is therapeutic education but it should not be based on the author’s expert opinion but rather on a double knowledge of mutual trust of the doctor and the patient where each patient is treated as a separate individual.
