Overview
 
What does an organization do when individual or group behaviors undermine the best attempts to create a safe and reliable environment?  You need a plan and the right people, processes and data systems.  The Vanderbilt Center for Patient and Professional Advocacy has conducted more than 20 years of research to help medical centers and physician groups make healthcare kinder, safer and more reliable. Our internationally recognized faculty have years of experience in healthcare leadership and professional accountability.   CPPA’s leadership training, “Promoting Professionalism” will provide practical tactics for attendees who wish to implement these tools in their own organizations.
