both damming and dangerous and can never
be justified.
the utmost care and tact be maintained when

have been treated or handled by other doctors.
a doctor is urged to expose incompetent or corrupt,
dishonest or unethical conduct on the part of
members of the profession without fear or favour as
these are against the best interests of patients.

a practitioner in whatsoever form of

practice, should take positive steps to
satisfy himself that a patient who
applies for treatment or advice is not

another practitioner before he accepts
a practitioner should not accept as a
patient any patient whom he has
attended as a consulting practitioner, or
as a deputy for a colleague.

Physician belong to a profession that has traditionally functioned in an

extremely hierarchical fashion.
Consultations are encouraged in cases of serious illnesses, especially in
doubtful or difficult conditions.
The rights of the patient to ask for a second opinion should be respected.
With the rapid growth in scientific knowledge and its clinical applications,
medicine has become increasingly complex. Individual physicians cannot
possibly be experts in all their patients diseases and potential treatments
and they need the assistance of other specialist physicians and skilled
health professionals such as nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists,
laboratory technicians, social workers and many others. Physicians need to
know how to access the relevant skills that their patients require and that
they themselves lack.
The attending doctor may certainly suggest the names of the consultants of
his choice but even then, in the event of a difference of opinion between
him and patient or his relatives of the patient, the choice of the latter
should prevail.
In the event of irreconcilable difference of opinion between the two doctors,
the circumstances should be impartially and frankly explained to the patient
concerned. It is now up to the patient to decide which of these he will follow
or, indeed, whether he will seek further advice from a new consultant.

a cooperative model of decisionmaking has replaced the authoritarian

model that was characteristic of
traditional medical paternalism.
As members of the medical profession,
physicians have traditionally been
expected to treat each other more as
family members than as strangers or
even as friends.
The WMA Declaration of Geneva
includes the pledge, My colleagues
will be my sisters and brothers.

For example, where fee-for-service was the

principal or only form of remuneration for
physicians, there was a strong tradition of
professional courtesy whereby physicians
did not charge their colleagues for medical
This practice has declined in countries
where third-party reimbursement is
available. Besides the positive requirements
to treat ones colleagues respectfully and to
work cooperatively to maximize patient
care, the WMA International Code of
Medical Ethics contains two restrictions on
physicians relationships with one another:
(1) paying or receiving any fee or any other
consideration solely to procure the referral
of a patient; and (2) stealing patients from

The attendance of the practitioner should cease when the

consultation is concluded, unless the patient has dispensed with the
services of his first doctor and engaged those of another.
In no case should the consultant treat the patient alone or hand him
over to his assistant or admit him to a nursing home or hospital
without the knowledge of the the referring physician or injure the
latters position in any respect. (Emergencies form an exception to
this rule. In such an event, the consultant should inform the
referring physician at the first opportunity after the crisis has been
tided over.)
When a consultant sees a patient in his rooms at the request of a
medical practitioner, it is his duty to write to the latter, stating his
opinion on the case and the line of treatment he thinks should be
adopted. He should not see this patient again without a fresh note
from the first doctor.
A doctor called upon in an emergency must treat the patient, but
after the crisis, the consultant must retire in favour of the original
attendant of the patient.


the opinion of an appropriate colleague

acceptable to your patient if diagnosis or treatment is
difficult or obscure, or in response to a reasonable
request by your patient.
When referring a patient, make available to your
colleague, with the patient's knowledge and consent, all
relevant information and indicate whether or not they
are to assume the continuing care of your patient
during their illness.
When an opinion has been requested by a colleague,
report in detail your findings and recommendations to
that doctor.
Should a consultant or specialist find a condition which
requires referral of the patient to a consultant in
another field, only make the referral following
discussion with the patient's general practitioner except in an emergency situation.

In the Hippocratic tradition of medical ethics,

physicians owe special respect to their teachers.
The Declaration of Geneva puts it this way: I will give to

my teachers the respect and gratitude which is their due.

Although present-day medical education involves multiple
student-teacher interactions rather than the one-on-one
relationship of former times, it is still dependent on the
good will and dedication of practising physicians, who often
receive no remuneration for their teaching activities.
Teachers have an obligation to treat their students
respectfully and to serve as good role models in dealing
with patients.
Students concerned about ethical aspects of their education
should have access to such mechanisms where they can
raise concerns.

The obligation to report incompetence,

impairment or misconduct of ones colleagues
is emphasised in codes of medical ethics. For
example, the WMA International Code of
Medical Ethics states that A physician
shall... strive to expose those physicians
deficient in character or competence, or who
engage in fraud or deception.
On the one hand, a physician may be
tempted to attack the reputation of a
colleague for unworthy personal motives,
such as jealousy, or inretaliation for a
perceived insult by the colleague.

A physician may also be reluctant to

report a colleagues misbehaviour
because of friendship or sympathy
Despite these drawbacks to reporting
wrong doing, it is a professional duty of
physicians. Not only are they responsible
for maintaining the good reputation of the
profession, but they are often the only
ones who recognise incompetence,
impairment or misconduct.

Reporting colleagues to the disciplinary authority

should normally be a last resort after other
alternatives have been tried and found wanting.
The first step might be to approach the colleague
and say that you consider his or her behaviour
unsafe or unethical. If the matter can be resolved
at that level, there may be no need to go farther.
If not, the next step might be to discuss the
matter with your and/or the offenders supervisor
and leave the decision about further action to that
person. If this tactic is not practical or does not
succeed, then it may be necessary to take the
final step of informing the disciplinary authority

Medicine is at the same time a highly

individualistic and a highly cooperative
On the one hand, physicians are quite
possessive of their patients.
The weakening of medical paternalism has
been accompanied by the disappearance of
the belief that physicians own their patients.
Physicians will have to be able to justify their
recommendations to others and persuade
them to accept these recommendations. In
addition to these communication skills,
physicians will need to be able to resolve
conflicts that arise among the different
participants in the care of the patient.

Ideally, healthcare decisions will

reflect agreement among the
patient, physicians and all others
involved in the patients care.
However, uncertainty and diverse
viewpoints can give rise to
disagreement about the goals of care
or the means of achieving those goals.
Limited healthcare resources and
organisational policies may also
make it difficult to achieve consensus

Dr. C, a newly appointed anaesthetist in a

city hospital, is alarmed by the behaviour of
the senior surgeon in the operating room.
The surgeon uses out-of-date techniques
that prolong operations and result in greater
post-operative pain and longer recovery
times. Moreover, he makes frequent crude
jokes about the patients that obviously
bother the assisting nurses. As a more junior
staff member, Dr.C is reluctant to criticize
the surgeon personally or to report him to
higher authorities. However, he feels that he
must do something to improve the situation.

Dr. C is right to be alarmed by the behaviour

of the senior surgeon in the operating room.
Not only is he endangering the health of the
patient but he is being disrespectful to both
the patient and his collegeous. Dr.C has an
ethical duty not to ignore this behaviour but
to do something about it.

As a first step, he should not indicate any support for the

offensive behaviour, for example, by laughing at the jokes.
If he thinks that discussing the matter with the surgeon
might be effective, he should go ahead and do this.
Otherwise, he may have to go directly to higher authorities
in the hospital. If they are unwilling to deal with the
situation, then he can approach the appropiate physician
licencing body and ask it to investigate.
