Residency Education on the Prevention of Physician-Patient Sexual Misconduct
Despite ethical prohibitions and legal sanctions, physician sexual misconduct continues to occur at alarming rates. Even in psychiatry, which historically addresses topics such as boundary issues for psychiatrists in residency training programs, little education exists about preventing physician sexual misconduct. The authors propose an outline for education in the prevention of sexual misconduct for psychiatry residency programs.
