Learning Objectives:
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Analyze legal dilemmas to facilitate appropriate patient care.
  • Recognize legal implications of treatment alternatives.

You are online in a social internet site and one of the other people starts to discuss the treatment of his unusual skin condition. You simply can't resist giving advice. Unfortunately, your advice is grossly incorrect. What is your liability? You want to expand your practice and find an internet site which offers to refer patients to you for a nominal fee of $20 for those patients who actually show up in your office. Would acceptance create any legal problem? These and other legal dilemmas will be discussed by a panel of MD/JDs, all of whom are practicing dermatologists.
