Vanderbilt Center for Patient and Professional Advocacy presents "Promoting Professionalism: Addressing Behaviors that Undermine a Culture of Safety, Reliability and Accountability"
Leaders of health care institutions often do not have training in, or strategies for, dealing with disruptive behavior. Without the proper tools, health care professionals seemingly tolerate a certain amount of unprofessional behavior in their institutions, threatening quality of care and patient safety, affecting staff morale, and increasing cost burdens. This program will give medical center leaders the needed tools and strategies to address disruptive conduct, providing a comprehensive plan adaptable to all healthcare organizations.
