Cause and Effect

May 26, 2011

I just watched an interesting presentation by the American College of Physician Executives on the Causes and Effects of Disruptive Behaviors.  It was a nice, short presentation that addressed the prevalence and the impact of disruptive behavior among physicians.  Interestingly, in their study, 99% of the individuals surveyed reported patient-safety implications secondary to a doctor’s disruptive behavior.

    Thank you.
