Statement of Need :
The Doctor-Patient Relationship is a specially privileged relationship in our society. As a result, physicians are afforded access to information and confidences by patients that are not available to anyone else. Along with this privilege comes a series of professional responsibilities for physicians. More is expected of physicians than from most other professionals in our society.
The practice of medicine is governed by several important ethical precepts, including: confidentiality, beneficence, respect for patient autonomy, truth telling and the highest degree of professionalism. Physicians work within the guidelines of these principles. Yet medical practice can also be challenged by these principles, particularly when two or more of them are in conflict. This expertly taught intensive course – liberally employing case presentations – focuses on applied ethics, from boundary issues to billing practices.
Conference Objectives :
• Describe the meaning and importance of medical professionalism
• Discuss how conflict of interest may compromise professionalism
• Identify three significant boundary issues and proper limits in relation to each
• Discuss the few exceptions to the principle of confidentiality
• Describe two important ethical issues with respect to operating a practice
• List three elements that help to distinguish between “Usual and Customary” and “Health Care Fraud”
• Describe errors physicians frequently commit with regard to informed consent
• Explain how autonomy and beneficence can easily come in conflict
• Describe two issues of particular concern when prescribing controlled substances
• Explain how patients behave in two or three typical drug scams and outline appropriate provider countermeasures
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
