Solidarity, Trust, and Christian Faith in the Doctor-Patient Relationship
In this article, we first give a normative account of the doctor-patient relationship as: oriented to the good of the patient's health; motivated by a vocational commitment; and characterized by solidarity and trust. We then look at the difference that Christianity can, and we believe, should, make to that relationship, so understood. In doing so, we consolidate and expand upon some claims we have made in a forthcoming book, Ethics and the Healing Profession (Curlin and Tollefsen, 2021).
