Physician Policies: A Practical Guide to Governance Issues
following the webinar. Look below for more information about the book.
When a physician owner or partner speaks negatively about his or her peers or refuses to comply with policies, both the practice’s reputation and its patients’ safety can be at stake. In fact, nearly 80 percent of physician executives reported in an MGMA survey that disruptive physician behavior is under-reported, due to fear of reprisal, or is only reported when a serious violation occurs. What can be done with a disruptive physician?
In this FREE 60-minute webinar, Ken Hekman, MBA, FACMPE, co-author of MGMA’s newest book, Physician Policies: A Practical Guide to Governance Issues, will show you how to recognize disruptive behaviors and create a positive solution for your organization. Hekman will explore the causes and costs of disruptive physicians, identify methods to prevent and manage the damage, and offer intervention tactics to implement when physician behavior gets out of hand.
This webinar will provide practical solutions that focus on recognition, early intervention, coaching and career counseling, all designed to enhance physician satisfaction and reduce negative behaviors.
Following this 60-minute webinar, you will be able to
- Identify a disruptive physician and recognize the risks of his or her behaviors to patient care
- Describe how to prevent disruptive physician behavior and intervene when it does occur
- Recognize the costs of not intervening
- Discuss the importance of early intervention, coaching and career counseling
