Researcher Bulletin of Medical Sciences,
Vol. 27 No. 1 (2022),
Background & Objective: Doctor-patient relationship plays an important role in adherence of patients to treatment instructions. This study tries to examine the relationship between physicians and patients with type 2 diabetes in the treatment process by the grounded theory.
Materials and Methods: Eleven physicians and 9 diabetic patients in both sexes were selected from among all type 2 diabetic patients referred to physicians' offices in Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences and Health Services. A semi-designed interview was used to gather information.
Results: The factor influencing the physician's lived experiences in dealing with the patient and the patient's lived experiences in dealing with the physician was named as the "physician-patient discourse" factor. This factor included 9 categories in 2 central codes "physician-centered" and "patient-centered" in the physician's lived experiences with the patient and 4 categories in 2 central codes "awareness" and "confidence-building" in the patient's lived experiences in dealing with the physician.
Conclusion: A discourse in which the physician allocates adequate time to efficiently convey training and information, and to take a complete history of the patient, and to establish an effective, friendly, and respectful relationship ultimately lead to the patient's trust. These factors can persuade the patient to adherence to the prescribed treatment.
