Duties: As a Member of the Profession to the Public

Advocating for a Safe Health Care System

A health care system that balances safety, caring and effectiveness is the best way to ensure patients receive high quality care. To improve the quality of care that the system provides, physicians should work collaboratively with other professionals to reduce the incidence of medical error and adverse outcomes.

Physicians should also collaborate with others for the effective management of health care resources.
