Self-Assessment Tools Can Address Problematic Physician Behaviors
a Family Practice News report.
There may be a disconnect between how a physician perceives his or her own behavior compared with the impressions of other clinicians, according to David Lubarsky, MD, an anesthesiologist who in September became CEO of UHealth Physician Practice and associate vice president for UHealth Practice administration at the University of Miami. In these instances, a program such as Physicians Universal Leadership Skills Survey Enhancement 360 can help.
The physician rates his own workplace behavior in the survey, Dr. Lubarsky said, and the team around him also completes surveys. The physician then receives specific feedback on both positive and negative behaviors.
"When they are confronted with this and told specifically what they are doing that isn't really working, and given alternatives about how to approach a situation – and they see their scores getting better — they get better, they feel better. The whole team operates better. It's a very positive experience," Dr. Lubarsky said.
