TMA OFFERS NEW WHITE PAPER ON PATIENT-PHYSICIAN RELATIONSHIP
Physicians’ legal responsibilities to their patients begin with the creation of the patient-physician relationship and continue as long as that relationship exists. A physician is potentially liable for medical professional liability only where there is a patient-physician relationship. To help you better understand your risks and responsibilities, TMA’s Office of the General Counsel has published a new white paper, “Creation of the Patient-Physician Relationship.” It’s available for free for members only on the TMA website.
