22. A physician must refrain from taking advantage of the professional relationship established with the person to whom he is providing services.
More specifically, the physician must, for the duration of the professional relationship established with the person to whom he is providing services, refrain from having sexual relations with that person or making improper gestures or remarks of a sexual nature.
The duration of the professional relationship is established by taking into account, in particular, the nature of the pathology, the nature of the professional services rendered and their duration, the vulnerability of the person and the likelihood of having to provide professional services to that person again.
