    High trust in doctors, nurses in US, AP-NORC poll finds

    Washington — Most Americans have high trust in doctors, nurses and pharmacists, a new poll finds.

    Researchers say that trust could become important in the push to increase COVID-19 vaccinations, as long as unvaccinated people have care providers they know and are open to hearing new information about the vaccines.

    At least 7 in 10 Americans trust doctors, nurses and pharmacists to do what’s right for them and their families either most or all of the time, according to the poll from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

    The poll shows high levels of trust among both Democrats and Republicans; men and women; and white, Black and Hispanic Americans.

    When people get treatment or a service from a doctor or a nurse, they start building trust and then tend to return to those providers when they need more help or have questions about a health issue, said Michelle Strollo, a senior vice president in NORC’s Health Research Group.
