Culture and Doctor-Patient Communication in China: The Doctor’s Perspective

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



Abstract:

Most of the existing studies on doctor-patient communication are conducted in Western countries and marked by a Eurocentric bias, such as the assumption of individualism, autonomy, and rationality. Presented here is an exploratory study of doctor-patient communication in China. Interviews and surveys of twenty four doctors in China show that doctors consider themselves as both saviors and victims. This conflicted professional identity affects how doctors perceive doctor-patient relationship and how they communicate with their patients. By exploring the dialectical tensions in doctor-patient communication, this study demonstrates how doctor-patient communication in China is situated within the larger social and cultural context of the country and how the mismatch between the culture of the newly privatized medical system and the traditional culture of China is a major cause of the strained doctor-patient relationship in the country.
