Horty Springer: How to Craft and Use a Transition Plan to Successfully Navigate Major Medical Staff Policy Changes_Enduring
After a Bylaws Committee, MEC, and Board have spent months (and sometimes years!) drafting, scrutinizing, reworking, and adopting Bylaws, policies, or other procedures and regulations – the real work begins! That’s right – just as many leaders breathe a sigh of relief – the work of implementing new policies and procedures gets underway. This phase of any major policy change is often the least considered, though arguably the most important. Often, there are forms to be developed or revised, policies to be reviewed for consistency, new committees to be formed, leaders to be elected, new criteria to be enforced, and more!
