New Prescription for Trust


Although most Americans (83%) still trust their doctors to tell them the truth about health issues, fewer than half have faith in healthcare CEOs, government leaders, or journalists. As trust declines, people are turning to less reliable sources of medical information. The result: 40% of those surveyed say they regret a health decision they made based on misinformation. Sharing evidence in ways the public can digest, listening respectfully to consumer concerns, requiring greater price transparency, acknowledging uncertainty, depoliticizing health and medicine, and empowering patients can rekindle the trust so imperative to good health outcomes.
