Poll finds high trust in pharmacists, nurses, and doctors

A new poll shows that most American have high levels of trust in physicians, nurses, and pharmacists. The poll, from the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy and the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, found that at least 7 in 10 Americans believe doctors, nurses, and pharmacists will do the right thing for them and their families most of the time.  

 

The high levels of trust for these health care professionals included Democrats and Republicans; men and women; and white, Black, and Hispanic Americans.  

 

“Public health officials should really look to doctors, nurses, and pharmacists to be the megaphone to deliver the message of the importance of getting vaccinated,” said Michelle Strollo, a senior vice president in NORC’s Health Research Group.  

 

The survey, which was conducted in June 2021, involved more than 1,000 adults using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak Panel.
