Alternatives to defensive medicine.

Abstract

The ethics of defensive medicine, as distinguished from unnecessary testing for reasons other than fear of malpractice suits, and the usefulness its practice affords the physician in court are sharply questioned. Physicians, patients, and society are all adversely affected by its practice. Alternatives are recommended that physicians and organized medicine can employ to minimize malpractice problems.
