At long last, a book devoted exclusively to the dilemma of physician (of all specialties) sexual misconduct.
Physician Sexual Misconduct results from years of work with physicians guilty of sexual misconduct and the patients they mistreated. With this comprehensive reference tool, users will come miles closer to understanding and preventing incidents of this unprofessional behavior.
With this resource available, no health professional need feel uninformed about the problem of sexually abusive practitioners. It provides insight into all of the dimensions associated with this terrible occurrence: legal, ethical, administrative, educational and rehabilitative, including:
Civil and criminal laws governing sexual misconduct
Problems associated with insurance coverage of sexual misconduct
The American Psychiatric Association's and American Medical Association's policies addressing this issue
The Medical Boards' role in policing the problem
Models for rehabilitation of physician-offenders
A sample outline for teaching medical students about the ethical problem of physician sexual misconduct
“The editors are to be congratulated on selecting an outstanding group of experts whose contributions are unusually even and excellent. Many chapters include vivid case vignettes. References are well selected and timely…the book’s organization makes it ‘user friendly’ as a reference. This well-crafted volume should be basic reading for training directors, physicians responsible for impaired doctors, and forensic psychiatrists. Physician Sexual Misconduct is an ideal resource to start research on any aspect of the topic and, therefore, belongs in all medical school and residency libraries. In addition, Physician Sexual Misconduct is a well-written, informative, and stimulating read for any psychiatrist who has thought about this psychiatric occupational hazard, so damaging to patient, doctor, and our professional image.”—David W. Preven, M.D., American Journal of Psychotherapy
“Physician Sexual Misconduct is an excellent collection of articles that examines sexual abuse by medical and mental health professionals. The articles, grouped by subject matter, cover virtually all the relevant issues. . . . This collection synthesizes the insights, experience and research of a diverse group of professionals and victims/survivors into a highly useful and readable work on a complicated subject.”—Psychiatric Times
“In Physician Sexual Misconduct, Bloom, Nadelson, and Notman give a clear-eyed and nuanced account of physician sexual exploitation. Ethical, legal, educational, and therapeutic quandaries brought on by erotic boundary violations are dissected with unflinching objectivity and uncompromising commitment to patient well-being. It is hard to imagine a person in a position of medical authority who does not need to read—and heed—this remarkable book.”—John Monahan, Ph.D., Doherty Professor of Law and Professor of Psychology and Law, School of Law, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia
This is a valuable resource for peer review entities, medical staff executives, compliance officers, human resource managers, practice managers, legal counsel and physicians of all specialties.
