decision making

Help me study for my Psychology class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

 

The purpose of this assignment is to get students thinking about the importance of decision making in choosing a practitioner. Although most people would say that competence is the main criterion in this decision, research indicates that people tend to choose a medical practitioner on the basis of many other factors. For this assignment, you will be required to answer the following questions:

  • What other factors have you used to decide which physician, dentist, chiropractor, or other practitioner to visit?
  • Do you believe that the practitioners are competent? On what do you base your opinions about the competence of your practitioners?
  • Do you believe your practitioner is competent because she or he is friendly and appears to be caring?
  • How can people without medical training know the competence level of health care professionals?

Your submission should be 3-4 pages total in length (double spaced, Times New Roman 12 point font, one inch margins).
