  • Using Emotional Intelligence In Leadership to Build Practice Resiliency

    July 8, 2020  12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
    Webinar

    Presented by Maryland MGMA

    Speaker: Susan Childs, FACMPE, 
    Evolution Healthcare Consulting

    As the practice leaders, we are dealing with new protocols and the balancing of our practice through this ever-transitional period. There has never been a better time to be more in tune with your staff, physicians and patients.

    We experience fear, pressure stress and anxiety, and any one of which alone can be overwhelming. Emotional intelligence offers the familiarity needed in the best way to respond to any situation accordingly.

    While it is our role in a professional setting to care for others we also have to think of ourselves in order to maintain a routine and level of sanity while providing patient care.

    This session will look at how, as a leader, emotional intelligence can help most with communication, operational and revenue cycle issues in these most challenging times!

    Description 
    THIS TRAINING IS INTENDED FOR PRIMARY CARE PROVIDERS (ex. doctors, nurses, physician assistants). The goal of Recognizing and Responding to Suicide Risk: Essential Skills in Primary Care (RRSR-PC) is for primary care practitioners and staff to learn current best practices in eliciting suicide risk when present and meeting the needs of their distressed patients. The RRSR-PC was developed by the American Association of Suicidology (AAS) with funding from the Irving and Barbara C. Gutin Charitable Fund to provide physicians, nurses/nurse practitioners, and physician assistants with the knowledge they need in order to include suicide risk assessments in routine office visits, to elicit risk where it exists, and work with patients to create treatment plans to reduce risk.

    During this training program, Primary Care Practitioners learn: 

    1. Why and how routine suicide risk screening should and can be incorporated into routine medical visits
    2. What constitutes appropriate risk management strategies and crisis response planning
    3. How to effectively document a suicide risk assessment in a medical chart
