How Should Physicians Respond to Colleagues Who Disseminate Misinformation


This webinar will explore how we should respond as individual clinicians and as a profession to colleagues who provide misinformation to their patients for religious, political, or other reasons. Discussion will include what actions can be taken to decrease mistrust in the profession, while still allowing individual clinicians personal autonomy and freedom of expression.
