New Legislation in Texas: What’s New and What’s Not When Obtaining Consent for Medical Treatment?
General internal medicine faculty physicians and allied health practitioners in inpatient and outpatient settings need to receive regular updates on current evidence-based guidelines for general internal medicine practice, effective transitions of care, and other systems-based practices. The series aims to reach the wider audience of general internal medicine practitioners at Ben Taub Hospital, the Baylor Clinic, the Harris Health System, the Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center, and the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center. The series also aims to address the challenges of developing and implementing quality improvement strategies and maintaining quality patient care as general internal medicine practices continue to evolve. Emphasis will be placed on the importance of professional development activities, such as teaching and scholarship, as a means to keep knowledge of evolving general internal medicine practices current.
Physicians, fellows, residents, medical students, and other health professionals.
