Abstract:   (11400 Views)
Observing patients’ rights in health care services plays an important role in improving and adjusting the doctor-patient relationship and is therefore of great significance in health systems management. Considering the role it plays as an important philosophical part of modern ethics in ethical and social functions, empathy has received much attention in various areas of research such as psychology, behavioral studies, neurosciences and psychiatry. The present study will first offer an overview of the history of empathy and its positive effects on the interactions between doctors and patients, and then move on to propose strategies to promote empathy in doctor-patient relationships. Empathy plays a significant role in patient empowerment and satisfaction, and therefore studying its effects on teaching medical ethics as a factor that can positively influence the doctor-patient relationship can provide all, including organizations such as the Ministry of Health and psychology and counseling centers, with valuable guidelines to promote mental health, from prevention to treatment.
