August 2003 AAOS Report

AAOS Board seeks member comments on expert witness issue

The AAOS Board of Directors wants to know how members think the organization should respond to the issue of inappropriate orthopaedic expert witness testimony. During the coming week, members will receive either a fax, or a letter with background information and a short, three-question survey. The background information will include a summary of AAOS actions to date, as well as the costs and legal ramifications of three different assessment and disciplinary systems. Members will be able to respond in three ways: online, or via fax or mail. A unique identification number (not your member ID number), will be provided to you in the fax or letter and is required to access the survey online.
