November’s Grand Rounds: Running Effective Medical Staff Meetings in a Virtual World
November 1, 2022 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm (ET)
As a Medical Staff leader, you are not only dedicating a significant amount of time to your patients, but you are also expected to dedicate significant time to your leadership responsibilities. And if you are like most leaders, this means lots of meetings! Traditional Bylaws often require monthly or quarterly meetings of departments and committees, but when we work with Medical Staffs on new Bylaws, we learn these meetings aren’t viewed as being very helpful or productive, which leads to low attendance. The option to attend meetings “virtually” through Zoom and Teams has made it easier for individuals to multi-task and participate in meetings remotely (sometimes while doing their dishes or taking Fido for a walk), but this practice does raise some issues, especially when confidential information is being discussed.
- Understanding the different types of meetings (information, working sessions, etc.) and how to make them meaningful.
- Understanding the role of the presiding officer (meeting preparation, leading discussion, etc.).
- Understanding the benefits and challenges of virtual meetings.
