Abstract: Much attention has gone into the study of ethical issues that arise in clinical encounters in the inpatient setting - for example, issues that arise in end of life, with allocation of scarce ICU resources. Issues that arise in outpatient medicine, such as firing of disruptive patients, prescription of controlled substances or how physicians interact with the pharmaceutical industry, are often less studied and discussed even though the majority of medicine occurs in this setting. We seek in this hour to shed light on these issues and encourage discussion on how to address these issues.
