Medicolegal and Ethics Can a doctor have a relationship with the patient?

Hello,

can the doctor have a relationship with his/her patient?

in cornard ficher ethics book it is written that all doctors - except psychatrists - can have a relationship with their patients once they end their treatment, while psychiatrist can't do that even if the treatment is ended

while in first aid and high yield for behavioural sciences it is witten that a doctor can never have a relatioship with the patient - regardless he is a psychiatrist or not

what do you think?
