Risk Management

Research or the practice of medicine?

OMIC policyholders regularly contact our confidential Risk Management Hotline for help deciding if what they are doing is research or the practice of medicine. They may want to use a drug or device outside of clinical trials before it has been approved by the FDA, or off-label after approval. Some want to offer their patient a novel surgical technique. Research or Practice of Medicine provides useful guidance.
