Ethical Requirements for Expert Witnesses
|Experts should testify only about those aspects of care for which they have direct knowledge, specific educational background, and clinical experience||Limits the likelihood that generalists will provide testimony outside their areas of specialization or expertise|
|The testimony should be based on a complete review of all the facts of a case||Decreases the chances that the medical record will be misinterpreted as a result of bias or incomplete study|
|The testimony must be scientifically up-to-date and its conclusions must be verifiable using evidence-based scholarship||Prevents the witness from relying on subjective impressions, ideas, or personal experiences|
|The payment that the witness receives must not be contingent on securing a victorious outcome at trial||Limits the motivation to alter testimony purely for financial gain|
