Tell your colleagues which interesting articles

you recommend, and find the content most

“I find the AAO Online Community to be extremely

helpful to me. The online message boards and

groups provide an easy-to-use ‘sounding board’ for

difficult or interesting cases to share with fellow

physicians, and the community really helps me to

stay connected with the academic world while

maintaining my private practice in a more rural

area of the country.”

— Eric Thomas, MD

“I like the ability to separate social networking

into the personal (Facebook) and the professional

(Academy Online Community). I’ve also had a few

conversations via the Academy Online Community

with residents I’ve never met. I would not have

‘friended’ someone I don’t know on Facebook, but

I’m happy to connect to a fellow ophthalmologist

here.”

— Ruth Williams, MD, Academy President-Elect

“I urge you to explore AAO.org and the new

interactive networking features. As someone

who highly values the opinion and input of my

ophthalmic colleagues, I know that my professional

experience will be vastly improved by the ability

to communicate and collaborate with peers in this

kind of dynamic, secure environment.”

Ethics

ethical ophthalmologist series

The Ethical Ophthalmologist Series is a CME credit-bearing online educational activity addressing practical ethical issues in everyday practice.

Case studies illustrate common ethical dilemmas and possible resolution with emphasis on serving the best interests of each individual patient.

The courses are available on the ONE Network in an interactive format. Each individual course may be taken once in a 10-year MOC review

cycle and may be repeated in following years.

Code of Ethics

All members of the Academy agree to abide by

the Code of Ethics as a condition of continued

membership. Learn the principles and rules

governing the ethical practice of ophthalmology to

ensure that the best interests of patients are served.

The Code of Ethics is now available in Spanish:

El Código de Ética de la Academia Americana

de Oftalmología

2009

To download this free information, visit

www.aao.org/about/ethics.

Bettman Ethics Lecture Program

The Academy’s Ethics Committee offers a unique

ethics lecture program, developed as a practical

educational tool for both residents and practicing

ophthalmologists. In addition to providing a

practical view of everyday ethics, the lectures

generally qualify for ethics-specific CME credit for

certification and recertification and state licensure,

and they satisfy ACGME ethics requirements for

resident education.

To download information, visit

www.aao.org/about/ethics.

Online Ethics Courses

Three ethics courses are available in an engaging

interactive format that require user responses to

ethical dilemmas before moving forward.

Published Oct. 2010; expires Oct. 2013.

To access ethics courses, visit www.aao.org/

ethicscourses.

The American Academy of Ophthalmology

designates this online activity for 1 AMA PRA

Category 1 Credit . Physicians should only claim

credit commensurate with the extent of their

participation in the activity.

Earn up to 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit per

ethics course.

Commercial Relationships,

Compensation and Advertising

For economic, social and political reasons, modes

of ophthalmic practice have changed drastically

in the last few years. Commercial relationships

of all varieties now abound. Many factors affect

levels of compensation. Advertising is seen as

a primary practice-building tool. What are the

threshold principles for the ethically responsible

ophthalmologist?

Informed Consent, Doctor-Patient

Relationship and Delegated

Services

Obtaining informed consent, engendering

physician-patient trust and delegating

duties appropriately are the traditional ethical

underpinnings of good health care. These ethical

concerns are central to the best interests of

the patient, and quality of service suffers if

these issues are not addressed.

Research, New Technology and

Collegiality

It is important to recognize the ethical issues

unique to research and the definition of innovative

therapies and standards of practice. At the same

time, promoting collegial interactions between

physicians helps the profession define and maintain

performance standards. How does the ethical

ophthalmologist do all this and focus on the best

interests of patients?

The Profession of Ophthalmology:

Practice Management, Ethics, and

Advocacy

Executive editor: David A. Durfee, MD

Insights and practical information to help practicing

ophthalmologists and ophthalmology residents

deliver care efficiently, ethically and effectively

are provided. Essential topics not often covered in

medical school are discussed, including financial

management, marketing, information technology,

professional development, real-life ethics

practice studies, how legislation affecting the

practice of ophthalmology is made and how each

ophthalmologist can make a difference. All chapters

have been revised to reflect recent changes,

including the gifts-from-industry case study and

advocacy topics such as scope of practice, pay

for performance and the association between the

Academy and state societies. This downloadable

PDF features easy navigation, search, hyperlinks to

references and websites, and a printable format.

Reduce Your Medical Malpractice

Risk!

Outdated patient education materials and

informed consent documents can increase the risk

of a medical malpractice suit. Why take the risk?

The Academy and OMIC urge all ophthalmologists

and practice administrators to conduct an annual

audit of these materials and documents. This is

a simple yet effective risk management strategy

that can help you prevent or minimize the impact

of a malpractice lawsuit or claim.

How do you know if your materials are

current?

• Download a patient education checklist from

www.aao.org/patiented/audit.

• Visit the Academy website at www.aao.org/

patientedproducts to review a full line of

peer-reviewed patient education materials.

• Visit OMIC’s website at www.omic.com to

ensure that you have the most current OMIC

informed consent documents.

education products, send an e-mail to patientinfo

viewed and modified using any Web browser.

EyeWiki has expanded significantly since its

inception in July 2010, with more than half of the

site’s visitors living outside the United States. Four

hundred registered users have made more than

8,000 edits to the ever-growing library of articles.

Contributing articles to EyeWiki is an easy

way for you to give back to your profession and

provide quality ophthalmic information for other

ophthalmologists, medical students, patients

and researchers around the world. Join other
