Ethics Vignette XIV: Refusal to Care for Patients
Ethics Vignette XIV: Refusal to Care for Patients discusses reasons (acceptable and unacceptable) a physician might refuse care to patients, the legal definition of the patient-physician relationship, distinguishing risks vs. direct threats, and how to respond to and identify occupational risks. The intended audience is physicians, residents and fellows, and is also relevant to technologists.

AANEM ethical vignettes utilize true clinical scenarios to highlight common ethical situations confronted by neuromuscular physicians and technologists. Specific application of AANEM's Ethical Guidelines are discussed throughout each vignette. This vignette references Ethical Guidelines' section The Patient-Physician Relationship in Neuromuscular and Electrodiagnostic Medicine and subsection Medical Risk to the Physician.

The AANEM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
