Safe and Equitable Healthcare for All: SNMMI’s Position on the Doctor-Patient Relationship

July 8, 2022

SNMMI believes that physicians must be able to provide safe, effective, and accessible evidence-based health care to patients without the threat of non-medical outside interference. We condemn any interference with the doctor-patient relationship outside of public health measures and acknowledge that such interference can disproportionately impact historically and economically marginalized and disadvantaged populations. Physicians, legislators, regulators, and patients must work together to ensure safe and equitable health care for all.
