The relationship between doctor and patients is highly personal, based on the patients trust in the doctor. However, , it is not uncommon for this doctor-patient relationship to give rise to conflicts, disputes, and even legal claims and demands against doctors. Throughout history, the doctor-patient relationship has evolved through three models: thethe Activity-Passivity Relation, Guidance-Cooperation, and Mutual Participation. From the perspective of Dignified Justice, both the Activity-Passivity (Paternalistic) and Guidance-Cooperation models are not aligned with the Principles of Equality, the Principle of Balance between Rights and Responsibilities. They are contrary to the goal of humanizing individuals (ngewongkewong). The model of Mutual Participation is considered the optimal phase of the relationship, where doctors and patients are on an equal footing and bound by the principles of contract law, known as the Therapeutic Contract. However, this model falls short of the Principles of Moral Justice, the Principles of Spiritual Justice, and the fundamental principles of Dignified Justice that elevate intellect, creativity, and empathy as the highest drivers of the doctor-patient. We propose a new paradigm for this relationship, emphasizing humanity, justice, respect for moral and ethical norms, a familial bond, virtue, and spirituality. This model embodies the Dignified Justice of a Relationship.
