The American Medical Association on Nov. 15 adopted a policy to combat health disinformation disseminated by healthcare professionals.
Under the new policy, the AMA will work with health professional societies to tackle disinformation spread by healthcare professionals across all forms of media, according to a news release shared with Becker's. The organization will also study the effect disinformation disseminated by health professionals has on public health so it can better design a strategy to prevent it.
