Presented by: Chris Searles, MD

  • Frontline physicians in the US are frequently working harder than ever to provide the best care possible for their parents, sometimes at a significant cost to themselves. In this session Dr. Searles will describe the challenge that burnout poses to not only individual physicians, but our healthcare systems as a whole. He will provide you with the tools to identify red flags that might indicate burnout not only in others, but in yourself. This presentation will focus on providing specific tips for physicians, MSP’s and other healthcare professionals to develop their own “Resilience First Aid Kit”. In addition, Dr. Searles will emphasize the shared responsibility between front-line physicians and the organizations in which they work to prevent burnout, and support wellness.

  • As we all know, harassment is a Big Deal…whether physical, sexual or emotional harassment, as an MSP you must know what to do when one of your physicians is accused of or the victim of harassment. The need to provide a safe working environment, free from harassment of any kind has led to an increase of reported incidents. In this session Glenda and Geoff will discuss the investigation process of these incidents, when they are actionable and the types of actions that can be taken. At the end of this session, attendees will be able to understand the Medical Staff’s responsibility and authority to follow-up on allegations of harassment. Attendees will participate in discussion regarding actual case examples from two industry leading attorneys to include lessons learned and what to do and not do.

Presented by: Sarah Benator, JD, Arent Fox LLP

  • In a perfect credentialing universe, appointment decisions would be a simple “yes or “No”, but we don’t live in that universe. This session will focus on applications where appointment decisions are not clear cut. Sarah will provide attendees with tools their organizations can proactively adopt to guide them when facing “red flag” applications and discuss strategies for efficiently addressing those applications head-on in order to make reasoned, rational and informed credentialing decisions. This session will provide you with strong credentialing tools/strategies that will help you in guiding your Medical Staff Leaders when facing the “on the bubble” applicant.

  • We all hear how there is a need to be transparent with our customers “i.e. patients” but does that include using social media or google to screen licensed independent practitioners. With the ever changing impact of social media in our society, MSP’s can no longer ignore the implications it may have on their job. Come learn from Glenda what you as an MSP need to do to stay on the forefront of the social media movement. This session will focus on the impacts of social media and how they may have an effect on medical staff membership and/or privileges of physicians and AHP’s. Glenda will tackle the big questions like “should we google all new applicants?” “Do we need to address criticisms that patients post online about a provider?

Presented by: Ruby Wood, Esq. Partner Hooper, Lundy and Bookman PC and Alicia Macklin, Esq., Associate, Hooper, Lundy and Bookman

  • Every MSP and physician leader has questions regarding the sharing of peer review, “what can be shared, who can it be shared with? Sharing peer review information is an area rife with questions. Knowing what, when, how and with whom to share often sensitive information is critical knowledge for both medical staff professions and medical staff leaders. This session will provide practical guidance for answering those key questions in a manner that best supports confidentiality and immunity protections. In addition, Ruby will analyze information relating to the Well Being Committee and what protections lie within that committee.

    Target Audience: Seasoned MSP’s and Physician Leaders

Time: 3:15pm Thursday - 4:45pm Thursday

Presented by: Erin Muellenberg, Esq., CPMSM, Principal Polsinelli, LLP

  • Learn from a former MSP, turned Medical Staff attorney the basic credentialing requirements, including what to do with those files that have “red flags” and learn from one case of credentialing gone wrong. In today’s fast moving environment, with the pressures to quickly process applications, red flags may be over looked and only discovered when the problem practitioner is already on staff. During this session we will take a deep dive into a variety of red flags and discuss how they should be addressed and when leadership should be involved. Learn from the story of Christopher Dunstch, who was recruited to Baylor Plano Medical Center as a skilled young neurosurgeon and how things went wrong very rapidly. The goal of this session is to give you the credentialing tools to prevent future cases of “Dr. Death”, because as an MSP you are the first line of defense.
