Book Review

Physician Sexual Misconduct

James W. Lomax

Published: September 1, 2001

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

This fine book provides a nuanced and balanced approach to understanding a significant problem in health care delivery: the undermining of patient care through physician/patient sexual involvements. The book may be even more timely and helpful now than at an earlier time because of the diminished emphasis on the physician/patient relationship in many psychiatry residencies and because of the increasing focus on productivity that potentially leads to deprofessionalization. The comprehensive scope of this volume makes it a useful overview sufficient for most practitioners and a helpful beginning point for those who wish to develop specific treatment programs or to initiate a legislative agenda.
