Anesthesiologists offered insights into leadership training and anonymous reporting at the American Society of Anesthesiologists' Practice Management 2019, Jan. 18-20 in Las Vegas, according to Anesthesia Business Consultants President and CEO Tony Mira

Three takeaways:

1. Kansas City-based University of Kansas Medical Center's anesthesiology department developed a program called Leadership Education and Development to teach anesthesia residents and faculty about emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, billing, team-building, risk management and more. The 18-month program incorporates lectures, discussions and presentations designed to help participants acquire new leadership skills.

2. Stanford (Calif.) University researchers developed an anonymous perioperative incident reporting system after finding that only 43 percent of anesthesia residents had utilized hospital incident reporting systems.

3. Stanford residents submit reports anonymously through a password-protected website, and the newly created House Staff Quality & Education Committee then gathers, analyzes and disseminates information about adverse events in a way that protects findings from forced disclosure.
