  1. Terminating the physician-patient relationship.

    Article - En anglais


    This continues our series of articles addressing the many medicolegal aspects that impact the practice of dermatology.

    Because the physician-patient relationship is the cornerstone of every medical malpractice action, the proper termination of that relationship is very important.


    A format of an initial discussion of legal concepts followed by hypotheticals and a review of actual cases was chosen to enhance interactive learning.

    The subject matter is based on a review of medicolegal literature and actual recorded case law.


    Once a physician-patient relationship has been established, improper termination of that relationship may constitute abandonment.
