ForensisGroup Medical Ethics Expert Witnesses have many years of experience in healthcare risk management/patient safety with expertise in biomedical ethics, healthcare ethics, medical malpractice, physician clinical risk management, and regulatory standards.
Some of these experts are experienced vocational counselors with expertise in cases of personal injury, medical malpractice, product liability, workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability and SSI, and ADA compliance. Others are in the field of nursing with experience in medical record review of medical malpractice cases.
They testify in cases with issues of medical ethics and cite to the AMA (American Medical Association) Code of Medical Ethics, Opinions of the AMA’s Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs, and the AMA’s Principles of Medical Ethics. These issues can include patient-physician relationships; consent, communication, and decision-making; privacy, confidentiality, and medical records; end of life issues; organ procurement and transplantation; professional self-regulation; and interprofessional relationships. In addition, bioethicists are concerned with ethical questions stemming from the relationships among life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, and philosophy. They refer to the four basic principles of health care ethics when evaluating the merits and difficulties of medical procedures, and ideally, for a medical practice to be considered “ethical,” it must respect all four of these principles—autonomy, justice, beneficence, and non-maleficence.
