Health Cyberletter Global Study on Patient-Doctor Communication Edition – April- May 2011


In this Issue of the Cyberletter – Health, Healthcare and  Lifestyles, we are presenting findings from a Global Study on patient-doctor communication across the World. This study was carried out by WIN-Gallup International in 23 countries across the world during 2010. In total 22,581 adults were interviewed who had an experience of medical consultation in the last 12 months. Gallup Pakistan conducted the survey in Pakistan as the Pakistani member of WIN-Gallup International Global Team.
This Study brings unique insight into Patient-Doctor Relationship i.e. how patients perceive the communication skills of doctors, how loyal are patients to their doctors, do they trust them for choosing the right treatment for them etc. We will mainly present findings from Pakistan and compare them with the Global Average wherever appropriate.
