Tuesday, December 11, 2007

By American Academy of Pediatrics

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), an organization of more than 60,000 pediatricians, passed a resolution encouraging closer and more frequent collaboration between legal service and medical professionals, and specifically promoted medical-legal partnership as a strategy to improve the health and well-being of children. The AAP is the second professional association after the American Bar Association to formally endorse medical-legal partnership, and the first health care association to do so.
