    Unfortunately, the Joint Commission did not determine any standards what -so- ever relative to intervention for “disruptive behavior”. Untrained Life Coaches, Substance Abuse Counselors and on-line Anger Management Counselors can offer on-line programs or formal Psychoanalytically oriented psychiatric treatment for “disruptive physicians”.
    The three largest and oldest programs in the nation are the PACE Program at the University of California at San Diego(This is a two day program without an assessment), The Distressed Physician Program at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine.(This is also a two day program without any type of diagnostic assessment)
    The third program is Anderson & Anderson Emotional Intelligence Coaching for “disruptive physicians”. This model include a Pre and Post Emotional Intelligence Assessment(EQ-i-2.0), six months of coaching and a structured EI coaching curriculum. Services are offered with a combination of face to face and phone sessions including client workbooks, DVDs and ancillary coaching material.
