Doctor-Patient Trust Day
Doctor-Patient Trust Day is observed next on Sunday, March 17th, 2024 (19 days from today).
Doctor Patient Trust Day is held annually on March 17 every year to affirm the important role in the relationship between doctors and patients. The doctor's relationship with the patient should be based on trust. The patient is diagnosed by a doctor and prescribes a treatment plan. Patients rely on physicians to save their lives in some cases. And on what basis do patients give their lives to doctors? Compassion? Doctor's talent? Or anything else. Anyway, Doctor Patient Trust Day was also established to highlight patients' trust, faith in doctors.
A doctor, a respected profession in all societies and all times, is the one who brings faith and joy to life, alleviates physical and mental pain for patients, and can take back the lives of many people from the hand of death. Therefore, there is no reason for patients to doubt genuine doctors. They are the people who have tried their best to restore and maintain the health of the sick. On Doctor Patient Trust Day, people around the world are telling their own stories or their loved ones' stories of how they were cared for by dedicated doctors, of how they felt hopeless in front of the door of the emergency room until the doctor opened that door like a ray of hope and informed them that their loved one was out of danger. Part of Doctor Patient Trust Day is to show confidence in the team of doctors, to thank them. For doctors, there is no source of motivation, no professional joy like being trusted by patients.
