Preventing Sexual Misconduct

The physician-patient relationship has always required mutual trust and confidence. Recognizing and avoiding any type of exploitation is always the responsibility of the physician.  With this in mind, it’s a good idea to review exactly what is meant by sexual misconduct, learn to recognize the signs, and understand how it occurs.

Physicians have an ethical and legal obligation to  avoid sexual misconduct and report it if you suspect a physician colleague or witness anyone else in the medical establishment behaving in an abusive way.

This course educates learners on what is considered sexual misconduct, understand ways to avoid the perception of misconduct, describes the practice of proper care and sensitivity during patient encounters, and describes five ways healthcare providers can reduce potential sexual misconduct liability.
