Leadership in health care change: If not physicians, then who? Release Date: May 3, 2013 End Date: May 3, 2014
Target Audience This activity is designed for physicians leaders, physicians in training, medical students and medical society staff.
Statement of Need There is a need to help physicians better understand the role they can play in shaping the evolving health system and in improving quality and value of patient care. Hospitals are better positioned to lead this effort and hospital-led quality and value would take on a different shape than physician-led quality and value. In addition, there is a need to spotlight physicians who have already successfully led change within their communities and practice settings so others can learn from those successes.
Statement of Competency This activity is designed to address the following ABMS/ACGME competencies: interpersonal and communication skills and system-based practice. Receiving Your Certificate of Participation In order to receive your Certificate of Participation, you must complete an evaluation.
