Episode 57: Update on FSMB’s COVID Misinformation Policy

Katie Templeton, Chair of the Federation of State Medical Boards Ethics and Professionalism Committee, shares details on FSMB's full policy on "Professional Expectations Regarding Medical Misinformation and Disinformation." She shares that addressing misinformation shared by practitioners is not something new - it falls under the professional duty and ethical responsibilities to be honest and truthful in all patient interactions and when speaking.  She highlights the recommendations in the policy related to boards having a mis/disinformation policy, boards retaining their authority to handle their licensees without legislative overreach, addressing issues of mis/disinformation under the purview of professionalism and ethical duties, considering education or other rehabilitative measures to correct the conduct, and feeling confident moving forward with such cases based on sound regulatory considerations for public protection on the basis of ethical duty.
