Making The Most Of Your Relationship With
Medical Staff Services Professionals

November 3, 2020


Faculty:      

Susan Lapenta and Ian Donaldson

Topics:

In honor of National Medical Staff Services Awareness Week (the first week of November, as proclaimed by President George Bush in 1992, pursuant to Congressional House Joint Resolution #399), November’s installment of the Grand Rounds Audioconference Series will focus on the role of the Medical Staff Services Professional (MSSP):

  • Should the MSSP be invited to attend all Medical Staff committee meetings? Should the MSSP be a member of some committees? A voting member?
  • What role should the MSSP play in a Medical Staff Bylaws revision?
  • Can the Medical Staff leadership rely on the MSSP to make determinations of eligibility for applicants – and communicate those determinations to applicants?
  • In the most functional Medical Staffs, how do Medical Staff officers and committee chairs collaborate with the MSSP?

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this audio conference, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe strategies for making the most of the relationship between Medical Staff leaders and MSSPs, to achieve better outcomes in Medical Staff matters and create greater efficiencies for leaders.
    *
