Washington—There is a gap in understanding between medicine and the law, and it needs to be bridged, said John Eisenberg, MD, director of the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality, at a roundtable workshop held by his agency and the Institute of Medicine. "Here we are, experts in medicine on the one hand and in law on the other, and we are divided, as are the British and Americans, by a common language," he told participants, who met to explore their differences and seek common ground.
