|English term or phrase: power|
|doctors use their power to convince patients|
"Power" is always a tricky one to translate. Here is a good solution, from the Oxford 3-in-1, for your context:
3 (influence) influence f (over sur); I have no power over the
committee/over how the money is spent je n'ai aucune influence sur le comité/sur la façon dont l'argent est dépensé;
Thus, your sentence would read:
Les médecins se servent de leur influence pour convaincre/persuader leurs patients.
