Ethics and Boundaries (Hoffman, online 2020)
From Sexual Misconduct to Gross Negligence, Dr. Hoffman shares his personal experiences of over 35 years as a practicing chiropractor running multiple clinics, to over 26 years coaching doctors through the challenges of Malpractice and Board Disciplinary actions as one of the largest providers of Malpractice Insurance in the country.
Through real world stories and experiences that doctors deal with every day, Dr. Hoffman will address:
- The Differences between Ethics and Boundaries and Risk Management
- Responsible Communication with Patients and Staff
- The Physician/Patient Relationship
- Risk Management
- Informed Consent
- Balancing Philosophy with Reality
- Real Life Examples of Issues
- Patient Boundaries
By the end of the seminar, you will be better able to:
- Have a greater level of awareness rather than fear of safeguarding your practice and license
- Manage patients and staff ethically
- Set a world class standard of ethical excellence in your office and in the public’s eye
- Understand that the responsibility of sharing chiropractic in the real world is more than just adjusting the spine, and what you as an individual chiropractor do in your office is a reflection on every chiropractor and the profession as a whole
