PHILADELPHIA, February 28, 2011 - "Honesty is a core
professional obligation and lying, even for a patient, is a breach
of that obligation," J. Fred Ralston Jr., MD, FACP, president of
the American College of Physicians (ACP) reminded all physicians,
including the organization's 130,000 internal medicine physician
and medical student members today.
ACP's statement was issued amid reported confusion surrounding
"sick notes" issued without a medical evaluation to some protesters
absent from work to attend rallies at the state capitol in Madison,
"This has most recently been discussed in Wisconsin, but it's
not a state-based issue, like a state law," said Steven B. Pearson,
MD, FACP, governor of the Wisconsin Chapter of ACP. "Rather it is a
universal ethics principle on which ethics policy is based."
"Society empowers and trusts physicians to serve the interests
of individual patients," Ralston said. "But physician authority and
privileges also come with responsibilities to the community, even
when individual patients want otherwise."
The 'sick note' situation is only one example of an array of
ethical issues addressed by ACP in its Ethics Manual. The
organization also develops policies and case studies providing ethical
guidance and recommendations to help internists and their patients
with many situations.
The American College of Physicians is the
largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest
physician group in the United States. ACP members include 130,000
internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists,
and medical students. Internists specialize in the prevention,
detection, and treatment of illness in adults. Follow ACP on
