Market-oriented Health Care Reform and Patient Trust in Physicians in China: A Survey of Beijing

Synopsis:

The Chinese health care system has experienced profound changes like retrenchment of state financial support in the past decades. These changes and the subsequent adverse consequences have prompted the Chinese media and some academics to suggest that patients have a relatively low level of trust in physicians in today’s China. In this seminar, I report the results of my survey of patient trust in physicians in Beijing’s public hospitals. The survey was conducted between November 2009 and January 2010, and 434 patients were interviewed. The survey asked the respondents their degree of trust regarding the following three dimensions: physician agency, physician competence, and information provision. I will also discuss the major determinants of patient trust in physicians.
