  • Today’s Red Flags: Some Things Change, Others Remain the Same
    Identification of “red flags”, or information that indicates that there may be a problem that should be noticed or dealt with, is an important step in the application process.  Some red flags are easy to identify, and others are more subtle.  Some issues that were an indication of a potential problem in the past are not always an issue today due to administrative changes in the way medicine is practiced. This program will discuss how to identify potential red flags, follow-up of these issues, and appropriate documentation of this follow-up. 
  • Epic Fails: Avoiding Credentialing and Privileging Errors
    Utilizing case studies from such notables as Christopher “Dr. Death” Duntsch, and John Anderson King, we will delve into mistakes made in the credentialing and privileging process, lessons learned, and ways to avoid making these same mistakes. A brief discussion of negligence in credentialing will be included.

Noon – 1:00 p.m.      Lunch

1:00 – 4:00 p.m.

  • The Aging Practitioner: Protecting Practitioner Rights While Guarding Patient Safety
    The issue of the aging physician and when to cease practice has been controversial for many years. The natural aging process and specific diseases have the potential to adversely impact a clinician’s capacity to perform some or all of their requested privileges. When this occurs, medical staffs must assess the impact on the practitioner’s ability to perform requested privileges. In this program, we will discuss options for dealing with this issue from the standpoint of protecting practitioner rights while guarding patient safety.
  • Understanding the Peer Review and Performance Improvement Processes
    The quality assessment/performance improvement and peer review processes are often misunderstood. While closely intertwined and sometimes overlapping, they are two separate processes. This program will discuss the differences in these processes as well as how they intersect in the evaluation of practitioner competency.
