For system integration to work, physicians must support and engage in a collaborative organizational structure and culture. This session, presented by Jim Beeson, MD, will require attendees to examine systems that result in physician loyalty and discover effective techniques to manage difficult physician behaviors. Participants will learn how to create accountable leadership structures, train physicians to execute an organizational vision, appreciate forms of communication in organizations, and understand what better performers do to engage their physicians. • APRN Certification Preparation Review.
