What Goes Where? Bylaws, Policies, R&R, DoP Forms
August 6, 2019 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm (ET)
Topic: What Goes Where? Bylaws, Policies, R&R, DoP Forms
Faculty: Joshua Hodges
Designing medical staff governance documents is an art, not a science. Drafters must endeavor to create documents that are not only reflective of the latest legal standards, but also supportive of the pursuit of excellence in patient care. Documents should be there to guide new medical staff leaders handling difficult situations, to afford them the best legal protections available, and to embody the culture and values of the medical staff.
In this audioconference, we will share with you our underlying “blueprint” for effective organization of medical staff documents. We’ll explain the roles and functions of documents such as bylaws, organization manuals, rules and regulations, and delineation of privileges forms. Along the way, we’ll touch upon topics such as:
- emphasizing collegial interventions as a crucial part of performance improvement;
- avoiding inconsistency when drafting multiple policies;
- understanding the “hierarchy” of medical staff governance documents;
- crafting companion documents that support the medical staff bylaws; and
- other key factors to take into consideration when drafting.
Listen live on August 6, 2019. Or, purchase the recording (MP3 or CD) of this audio conference to share with medical staff members at an upcoming meeting or throughout the year.
Designed to be informative for any medical staff member, Grand Rounds 2019 should be particularly helpful for medical staff leadership: Medical Staff Officers, members of the Medical Executive Committee, Department Chairs, Chairs of the Credentials and Peer Review Committees, and the Chairs of other key medical staff committees.
If you have new members in any of these important positions, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for direct education that we guarantee will be helpful to them in their new roles.
Upon completion of this audio conference, participants should be able to:
- Analyze the distinctions between bylaws, rules and regulations, delineation of privilege forms, and other policies;
- identify (in broad and general terms) the topics that are most commonly addressed in medical staff bylaws; and
- reduce the risk of having document revisions derailed by an overly stringent amendment process.
