The psychiatrist and medical disciplinary jurisdiction

F.A.M. Kortmann

Recently a study was published of all disciplinary decisions about professional activities of psychiatrists in the Netherlands between 1989 and 1997 (De psychiater in de medische tuchtrechtspraak 1989-1997). This article is a comment from a psychiatrist's point of view. After a broad analysis of all cases it goes into more detail: on sexual activities in psychiatric practice and on the assessment of driving ability. Finally some conclusions and recommendations are given.
