Overcoming Barriers to High-Reliability Care & What Your Patients Really Want

Oak Lawn, IL US
April 27, 2017
Evidence-based medicine is becoming more important with each passing year. Despite mounting support that evidence-based clinical guidelines save lives, lower costs, and improve quality—care variation persists. Although the vast majority of physicians now agree with clinical standards, fewer than half of physicians use guidelines—even when they are available.

Physician leaders are uniquely qualified to help their organization solve this urgent adoption problem. To be most effective, physician leaders need to know how clinical guidelines are designed, how to champion their implementation, and ways they can support the medical staff in making clinical guideline adherence more likely. This onsite gives physician leaders the insights, strategies, and skills they will need to succeed in those efforts.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for physician leaders at Little Company of Mary Hospital and Health Care Centers.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, the participants should be able to:

  • Understand the common barriers to clinical guideline adherence;
  • Embrace best practices for designing, prioritizing, and implementing clinical guidelines;
  • Provide ongoing support to other physicians to increase the likelihood of guideline adoption.
