While not a new occurrence, the reported rise in intimidation, threats and attacks toward physicians and others in the medical field has been increasing over the last decade—and has become even more prevalent during the COVID-19 pandemic. A recent study published in JAMA posed the questions: how frequently do physicians experience mistreatment and discrimination by patients, their families, and visitors; how does this vary by physician characteristics; and more. At this program jointly hosted by three Sections, hear from one of the study's authors and from three Section physician leaders who will discuss how violence against physicians is being felt and addressed in a variety of practice settings including health care systems, hospital medical staffs and private practices.
