Workshop-How to Manage Disruptive Physicians

HOW TO MANAGE DISRUPTIVE PHYSICIANS


Disruptive physician behavior often includes unhelpfulness or rudeness but in some cases may deteriorate into abusive or even violent behavior. When doctors intimidate or disrupt their peers, or other staff members, medical errors may occur. It also contributes to poor patient satisfaction and increases the cost of care. It is also a major factor in high nurse turnover. It is widely recognized that patient safety and the quality of care depends on good relationships, good communication and teamwork. 


It is always best to prevent disruptive behavior before it occurs. While 3-5% of physicians and healthcare staff may demonstrate significant disruptive behavior, it is estimated that 30-50% have poor communication skills. This workshop teaches physician executives and administrators how to improve communication skills in their teams and avoid disruptive events before they occur.
