Ethical Issues Are Too Often Ignored By Medical Experts

By: Francois Sestier, MD, PhD, FRCPC, FACC, CIME

Medical experts are sometimes perceived as mercenaries, selling their opinion for money. This has been favoured by the adversarial judicial system in North America with medical experts on both the sides of the Court Room.

Ciprofloxacin remains one of the primary treatment options for cystitis. It is used routinely for inpatient treatment of pneumonia and many still consider it part of the first-line treatment for diverticulitis. But in the last few years, questions about its safety profile have led to growing concerns.

Failure of Medical Stress Tests

By: Dr. Sajid Khan

When evaluating a patient, we rely on a good history to help us form a differential diagnosis. We use our physical exam skills to refine that list. A bedside ultrasound or ECG can further guide our decision-making and save precious time. Beyond these, we rely on seemingly failsafe data: radiographs, blood tests, and urine samples. But sometimes these reliable tests aren't so reliable.

Is IME Preparation Useful?

By: Dr. Chasby Sacks

Recently we were asked to attend an IME and was struck by how unprepared the client was for the exam. Throughout the IME this person gave answers that we believe could potentially be detrimental to his case. The client spoke up in an effort to be helpful and forthright. These answers were volunteered without prompting by the examining doctor. It was difficult to sit through the IME as an observer and not ask the client to only answer the questions asked and not volunteer information that could be misconstrued by the IME Physician. The position must be taken that IME physicians may be no less susceptible to secondary gain issues than some clients.
