We aim to evaluate whether provider trust in the patient will vary by patient race/ethnicity in a family planning setting. We will evaluate whether provider trust in their patient is associated with perceived quality of care as rated by the patients themselves (see Conceptual Model). We hypothesize that it will differ by race/ethnicity and that higher trust will be correlated with higher patient-perceived quality of care.
