How do you handle the professional who repeatedly treats others with disrespect? Violates best practices and safety protocols? Refuses to comply? Leaders often tell us they are conflicted in addressing those who persist even when made aware.  In response, Vanderbilt Center for Patient and Professional Advocacy (CPPA) is hosting a Professionalism National Roundtable on October 20-21, 2017 in Nashville. Leaders from health care systems and organizations from around the country will gather with experts in professionalism to discuss challenges and opportunities in addressing variations in performance and will identify best practices related to the people, process, and systems needed to provide the greatest likelihood of restoring these individuals to full practice. The roundtable will include case reviews, group discussions, a “trade show” with experts in the field to explore which elements are most critical for success, and a shared creation of a set of best practices that can be used in participants’ home organizations.
