Patient Modesty: Volume 41
I think I have tried to bring up this aspect of patient modesty in the distant past volumes. It has to do with the psychodynamics which lead to genital/female breast modesty in examination or procedures carried out by healthcare providers of the opposite gender. This modesty is particularly of importance if the modesty leads to failure to diagnose and failure to treat. Why is it that some patients have this modesty issue and some don't? Is there any relationship to childhood experiences which left some psychic trauma? Could it be somehow related to lack of self-confidence or even an expression of depression. Cultural and religious pressures may also play a role in some patients. Or should we say that patient modesty has no particular cause but is a stand-alone phenomenon of human behavior and should be treated as such and there should be no reason to dissect it for cause or causes? Just asking... ..Maurice.
