Disclosing specialty bias may facilitate more patient trust: 3 findings
from Becker's ASC Review
Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences published a study which found patients were more likely to view their providers as trustworthy if the physician disclosed their specialty bias. A specialty bias refers to a physician's preference of recommending surgery in their field of expertise, according to News-Medical. In the study, researchers analyzed 219 conversation transcripts between surgeons and male patients in four VA U.S. hospitals.
