Ethics & Legal

Your work as an emergency physician is affected by countless ethical and legal considerations. These can be difficult to navigate and take their toll on your practice and well-being. ACEP continues to work on providing resources to help you navigate complex and, at times, stressful challenges in these areas.

Standard of Care Review

ACEP members can request a review of questionable expert witness testimony regarding emergency medicine’s standards of care. Any member may request a review of egregious testimony. This may include a case you were involved in or one that you are aware of and can obtain the required documents.
