Legal Advisor - Ethical Boundary Violations and How to Avoid Them is organized by Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS) and will be held during May 29, 2017 - May 29, 2020. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
Course Overview :
Ethical boundaries are the borders and limits of appropriate behavior between health care providers and their patients. Boundary violations encompass a wider spectrum of conduct than those most obvious improprieties. This CME activity explores ethical boundary violations such as relationship, prescribing, sexual misconduct, confidentiality, gift and social media boundaries.
Learning Objectives :
• Restate the Board of Registration in Medicine's role in investigating patient complaints against physicians.
• Assess the way in which physicians can measure their own activities in relation to ethical boundaries.
• Discuss some of the different types of boundary violations that can present themselves in the ordinary course of practice.
• Review the ways in which social media can be beneficial or harmful for a medical practice.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
