Release Date:
February 10, 2014

This activity requires an access code. At the present time, CME offerings in ethics that require an access code are available only to AMA members. We hope to make them available more widely in the future.

Objectives

At the end of this activity, physicians should be able to:

  1. Discuss ethical content in the updated opinions contained in Chapter 7 - Research & Innovation.
  2. Participate meaningfully in House of Delegates proceedings related to the Code modernization process.
  3. Describe how to use the Code of Medical Ethics as a resource for resolving ethical dilemmas in medical practice.
  4. Identify key ethical values in individual ethics opinions contained in Chapter 7 - Research & Innovation.

Target Audience
This activity is designed for all physicians, medical students, residents and fellows who are members of the AMA.

Statement of Need
There is a need to provide education on how physicians can utilize the AMA's Code of Medical Ethics for guidance in resolving ethical problems and professionalism dilemmas faced in clinical practice. Further, adoption of the modernized Code by the House of Delegates depends on AMA members' and delegates' understanding the changes made to this important document. This session will help physicians understand what and how the changes (substantive and non-substantive) in Chapter 7 - Research & Innovation were made so that they can participate in the process of adopting the new Code.
