Workshop 15 (ticket)
The Enlightened Medical Director: Understanding Performance Improvement and Making It Work

Child and adolescent psychiatrists in leadership positions need resources, support, and continuing education to build skills for effective medical leadership. This Workshop is the fourth in a series of programs designed for medical directors and perspective medical directors. It focuses on performance improvement, with emphasis placed on understanding process and microsystems, applying performance improvement principles to a case, and developing a plan for a specific performance improvement project. Through the use of specific cases, effective leadership approaches in the clinical care setting are illustrated; including patient violence, elopement, readmission rates, staff injury, and patient functional outcomes. Small groups are assigned a performance improvement project to determine an AIM statement and working plan for implementation and assessment. Participants are encouraged to share their leadership situation and candidly discuss their challenges.
