NCMB recently revised two position statements, including The Physician-Patient Relationship, which sets out the Board's expectations for meeting professional obligations to patients.

Updates to The Physician-Patient Relationship include new language that addresses circumstances specific to physicians who are employed by hospitals or other health organizations, such as notifying patients of the physician's departure and providing contact information if the physician leaves the group.

The Board also approved revisions to its position on Medical Testimony that incorporate the most recent version of the AMA Ethics Opinion on medical testimony. Updated versions of the position statements are available online.
