The Relationship of Doctor Ethnicity and Doctor-Patient Ethnic Concordance to Patient-Provider Communication in Nairobi, Kenya

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In order to examine the role of ethnicity in the patient-provider communication in Kenya we surveyed 221 participants and conducted 8 focus groups with low- and middle-income urban women in both urban and rural locations. Findings indicated that in the view of patients doctor ethnicity was not a major factor in shaping doctor-patient communication. However, additional research is needed to elaborate on findings regarding negative implications of patient-provider concordance.
