This 2-part series is part of the ongoing collaboration between AHLA’s Medical Staff Credentialing and Peer Review Practice Group (MSCPR) and the National Association for Medical Staff Services (NAMSS).  Each year, the MSCPR and NAMSS webinar series takes on medical staff hot topics with a particular focus on how attorneys and medical staff professionals work together effectively to address these challenging issues.  

Our topics for this year are: 

Physician Burnout and the Physician Well-Being Committee (PWBC) (May 23)

How does physician fatigue and burn out contribute to quality/safety issues, disruptive conduct, impairment and other medical staff challenges?   This Webinar will address the legal and practical challenges arising from physician burnout, and what gets hospitals and physicians into trouble.  It will provide practical pointers on the design and operation of a Physician Well Being Committee as a means of addressing these issues on the medical staff. 

Diversity/Implicit Bias on the Medical Staff – How to Raise Awareness and Implement Best Practices for Your Medical Leadership Team.  (June 13)

Medical staffs are increasingly diverse – gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation and disability set some physicians apart from their medical staff peers.  How does implicit bias impact how physicians are credentialed, peer reviewed and promoted into medical leadership positions?  What are the legal risks and exposures that hospitals should be attuned to – both for employed and independent staff physicians?  We will discuss policies, training and best practices to address these issues on the medical staff.

On-Demand Webinars

Offerings designated as “On-Demand" differ from those designated as “On-Demand+CLE" in that they are CLE-ineligible. However, CLE credit may be obtained by applying directly to the attorney's state accrediting body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said accrediting body and subject to its rules and regulations. Please refer to the Distance Learning CLE State for details regarding specific state guidelines.

Other, Non-CLE Credits

AHLA On-Demand+CLE webinars are only approved for CLE credits unless otherwise stated. To obtain other credit types (Continuing Professional Education, Compliance Certification Board, Nursing Home Administrator, etc.) participants may apply directly their desired licensing body, but approval is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of said licensing body and subject to its rules and regulations.
