NCMB relies on professional opinions provided by independent expert medical reviewers to help determine the outcome of disciplinary cases that involve questions about the quality of medical care provided to patients. Independent expert medical reviews help the Board establish whether accepted and prevailing standards of care were met and, if not, how care departed from accepted standards. Expert reviewers are compensated for their time.
The Board’s Chief Medical Officer has prepared a guide to help reviewers provide thorough, consistent reviews that meet all of the Board’s needs. Access the guide here.
