Featuring: David A. Shore, Director of Trust Initiative and Associate Dean, Harvard School of Public Health, and editor of The Trust Crisis in Healthcare: Causes, Consequences, and Cures (2007); with comments by L. Stephan Vincze, Vice President, Ethics and Compliance Officer, Privacy Officer, TAP Pharmaceutical Products; and Heidi Li Feldman, Prof. of Law, Georgetown Law Center; moderated by Sigrid Fry‐​Revere, Director of Bioethics Studies, Cato Institute.

When patients lose trust in their physicians and physicians lose trust in the organizations they work with, the tendency is to think that the only solution is government oversight. Dr. Shore concludes that government intervention will aggravate the U.S. trust crisis even further and that there are private solutions that can not only stave off unnecessary regulation but also give prudent health care providers a significant market advantage.
