November Grand Rounds Audio Conference Faculty:
Nick Calabrese and Ian Donaldson Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2022, Title: Running Effective Medical Staff Meetings in a Virtual World as a Medical Staff leader, you are not only dedicating a significant amount of time to your patients, but you are also expected to dedicate significant time to your leadership responsibilities. And if you are like most leaders, this means lots of meetings! Traditional Bylaws often require monthly or quarterly meetings of departments and committees, but when we work with Medical Staffs on new Bylaws, we learn these meetings aren’t viewed as being very helpful or productive, which leads to low attendance. The option to attend meetings “virtually” through Zoom and Teams has made it easier for individuals to multi-task and participate in meetings remotely (sometimes while doing their dishes or taking Fido for a walk), but this practice does raise some issues, especially when confidential information is being discussed. Join Ian Donaldson and Nick Calabrese as they discuss how to run Medical Staff meetings more effectively, including the benefits and challenges of using virtual options.
