E 137 After Alder Hey: Trust and Mistrust in Contemporary Healthcare


Doctors, like clergy, are in some ways symbolic of trustworthiness. So when the medical profession is thought to be untrustworthy, the consequences spread far into society.

This study looks at some significant cases in the light of a model for understanding trust. Out of this, it suggests key principles for rebuilding trust, and the distinctive contribution made by the church and theology in this task.
