La médecine du sommeil sous-représentée dans les curriculums des programmes de médecine : quelles implications éthiques pour les témoignages et la production de rapports médico-légaux?
In 2008, the American Medical Association Journal of Ethics dedicated an entire volume to ethical issues in sleep medicine. Texts published in the “Educating for Professionalism” and “Law, Policy, and Society” sections of this volume serve as theorical starting points to establish a correlation between lack of medical training in sleep disorders and ethical dilemmas encountered by expert witnesses during trials related to problematic automatic behaviours that occurred during REM sleep.
