As MSPs, maintaining an organized, productive staff office is an essential part of the job. Disruptive behavior by physicians can pose a threat to the functioning of your hospital, and dealing with instances of such behavior is a struggle for anyone working around it. Dealing with disruption in the workplace can be confusing, and it is important to be prepared if you encounter it in your hospital.
The American Medical Association (AMA) has recently released a free learning course addressing this topic. This 30-minute module will show you how to define appropriate, inappropriate, and disruptive behavior and present guidelines for dealing with these behaviors. Additionally, you will receive your own downloadable copy of the AMA Model Medical Staff Code of Conduct that you can integrate into your own medical staff bylaws.
You can access the module here. The course is designed for physicians and hospital administrators as well as medical staff, so please feel free to share within your facility.
