MSU study finds high level of medical mistrust among minority women impacts quality of health care
Date:2/5/2009

ina women and 9 percent for Arab-American women.

  • 44 percent of women who had never received a clinical breast exam agreed that health-care organizations have sometimes done harmful experiments on patients without their knowledge.

  • 64 percent of women who had not received a breast exam in the past 12 months agreed with the statement that they sometimes wonder if health-care organizations really know what they are doing.

    Williams said mistrust can come from a variety of places, most notably from personal and family experience, from how a patient is cared for by a doctor to how they are treated by a receptionist. What is vital is addressing and overcoming that mistrust, Williams said.

    "Everyone involved in the health-care experience needs to focus on respecting the patient and family, regardless of their race, gender, ethnicity, insurance or lack thereof," she said. "We need to provide everyone with the same gold standard regardless of any other factors."

    Williams plans to publish a paper on her research and explore whether interventions using community health workers can make a difference in decreasing medical mistrust.
