trust

 [trust]
a concept involving both confidence and reliance; to trust someone is to become vulnerable and dependent on the other person's intentions and motivations. Important trust relationships in health care are between patients, family members, the public, and providers. Health professionals have three obligations for being trustworthy: (1) acting consistently for the good of the patient, (2) having high levels of judgment and skill competence, and (3) fulfilling special roles such as the fiduciary one.



In health care, it is essential that patients be able to trust in the discretion of health care workers. It is impossible to specify moral practice in terms of rules or rights alone. It is difficult to separate knowledge and skill competence from moral competence (concern for the patient's well-being) in the professional's behavior. Trust must be earned and merited by performance and fidelity to its implications.

Trust

Medspeak-UK
A semi-independent statutory body within the National Health Service (NHS), which serves a particular geographic region in the UK. Trusts are governed by a board which provides acute services, mental health services, secondary services for the local population and, depending on its size, either commissioned tertiary services, or develops specialist services for a wider, regional, or even the national population.

Some trusts are attached to universities and help train doctors and other health professionals. Acute hospital trusts may provide services in the community—e.g., through health centres, clinics or in people's homes. Trusts employ most of the NHS workforce including nurses, doctors, dentists, pharmacists, midwives, health visitors, allied health professionals (e.g., physiotherapists, radiographers, podiatrists, speech and language therapists, counsellors, occupational therapists and psychologists), and support staff (including receptionists, porters, cleaners, IT specialists, managers, engineers, caterers, and domestic and security staff).
