Ethicists Challenged to Respond to Physicians’ Inappropriate Behavior
Ethicists can facilitate physicians obtaining emotional intelligence training or some sort of counseling, with regular check-ins. Ethicists also can give input on disruptive behavior policies. “When behavior is unduly influencing decision-making, you want to be sure that principles of justice, nonmaleficence, and beneficence are being followed,” Binkley says.
