Boundaries for Physicians: The Code of Medical Ethics American Medical Association
This e-learning module incorporates animation, infographics, and scenario-based learning to help physicians identify and understand how to maintain proper boundaries with their patients and to articulate and understand the underlying importance of those boundaries to the practice of medicine. Data on physician self-reported behavior and physician disciplinary actions, including the AMA’s own Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs’ disciplinary function, suggests that maintaining professional boundaries remains a significant challenge for physicians in practice, despite existing and longstanding ethics guidance on the matter. This CME will highlight key areas where establishing professional boundaries may be particularly challenging. Topics include identification and practices for maintaining professional boundaries with regards to sexual and romantic involvement with patients, former patients, key third parties, and medical trainees; identification and practices for maintaining professional boundaries with regards to treating family, self and colleagues; and identification and practices for maintaining professional boundaries with patients in the areas of political communications, receiving gifts, soliciting contributions, and social media
