In legal matters concerning client medical records, attorneys have continually been reliant on healthcare professionals to provide both testimony and medical information, often leading to disagreement. These disagreements frequently concern the scope, timing and costs associated with legal requests. In an effort to better facilitate the interaction between healthcare professionals and attorneys, the two communities have collaborated to establish the Colorado Interprofessional Guidelines. These guidelines set forth courtesies and expectations for legal and healthcare professionals. In the recently published article, “New Interprofessional Guidelines for Lawyers and Healthcare Professionals,” Thomas J. Wolf, together with Kari M. Hershey, Francis V. Cristiano, Nicholas Ghiselli and Richard P. Holme, discuss the origination and benefits of the Colorado Interprofessional Guidelines. Read the full article here.
