Evaluating Disruptive Physician Behavior – Three Case Illustrations: What We Did; What We Learned; What Was The Outcome
The need for cooperation in healthcare is especially relevant in today’s medical settings. To meet the best interests of patients, physicians must cooperate with each other and other members of multi-disciplinary teams. Disruptive physicians compromise the safety of patients and co-workers alike. Patients identify being confident, empathetic, humane, personal, forthright, respectful, and thorough as ideal physician behaviors. Valuing teamwork, handling stress, punctuality, and self-motivation to pursue professional and personal growth are also ideal physician behaviors.
Kimberly Ware and R. Gregory Cochran, MD, JD from Nossaman LLP are presenting this 3 hour workshop.
