How do you define disruptive physician? They are not always the loud, intimidating, abusive physician but also the one unwilling to return phone calls timely or properly chart a case. Dr. Charles Samenow, psychiatrist in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates joins host Dr. Bill Rutenberg to discuss a recent paper he co-authored, Disruptive Physician - A CME Course Aimed At Addressing Disruptive Physician Behavior. Better communication programs and more teaching of self-awareness can help to decrease inappropriate behavior. We must also become a healthcare community that does not tolerate this type of behavior.
