In the doctors’ profession, the codes of ethics are very highly leveled and this has resulted to trust among doctors and patients. However, clinical codes of conduct are civil codes of behavior that are considered acceptable by the professional members for the benefit of the profession and patients (Alan, 2006). Trust surpasses the inscribed words and causes the patients to anticipate for the doctors’ possession of high principles, clinical capabilities, expertise and impeccable manners. The necessity for the patient’s belief in the doctors is the foundation for the codes of conduct.
A fresh physician entering the medicine profession joins an alliance devoted to serve human beings. He/she is expected to lower his/her own interests to his patients’ interests and when working mutually with their fellow colleagues they will be able to elevate the community’s health standards thus achieving the objectives (Joseph, 2007). The doctors take over professional conduct traditions which should be based on their personal conducts. The doctors should also be trustworthy and honesty and should distinguish his/her limits in their professional activities.
