Legal Advisor - Ethical Boundary Violations and How to Avoid Them is organized by Massachusetts Medical Society (MMS).

Release Date: May 29, 2017
Expiration Date: May 29, 2020

The Massachusetts Medical Society designates this enduring material for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 

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.
