Behind Closed Doors: Gender, Sexuality, and Touch in the Doctor/Patient Relationship

Synopsis

An examination of the sexual aspect of doctor-patient relations. The authors' aim is to alert doctors to their own behaviors and attitudes, including ways in which they may inadvertently cause harm to their patients, and to provide doctors with new skills that will allow them to care for their patients more safely. They discuss sexual misconduct, a "patient protection protocol," and six factors for safe practice. Includes a list of recommendations for further reading on the subject. Annotation c.
