摘要：This article represents one of the first cross-cultural explorations of ethical ideology among physicians.The study involved a total of 1,109 physicians from six countries (Canada, China, India, Ireland, Japan, and Thailand) who responded to the Ethics Position Questionnaire.A comprehensive Bayesian Confirmatory Factor Analysis demonstrated robustness of the ethical dimensions of idealism and relativism as fundamental across cultures, with noteworthy cross-cultural variation.In particular, a four-factor construct was revealed and suggested more complex ethical dimensions for Chinese physicians.
