Professionalism and Systems of Care: Challenges and Opportunities
Saturday, May 19, 2012 : 8:00am to 11:00am
Health Sciences Campus
This panel discussion will deal with Systems of Care which represents one of the core competencies and a topic full of implications for the future of medical practice and the attendant challenges to professionalism.
Society demands that the medical profession fulfill its part of the social contract by providing safe, high quality care. In response, a multitude of professional and accrediting organizations from the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) through The Joint Commission have adopted the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education’s (ACGME) six core competencies as essential elements to assess physician competency and performance, from residency and continuing throughout their careers.
One of the principal objectives is to provide residents and faculty with a contextual overview of the changing practice climate where professional values are and will be tested. This panel discussion will deal with “Systems of Care” which represents one of the core competencies and a topic full of implications for the future of medical practice and the attendant challenges to professionalism. Our panel of executives represents three different types of organization (Academic, Private Practice, and Managed Care) with the common challenge to provide ethical, high quality, affordable professional health care but with different approaches, missions, infrastructures, and cultures. The goal is to present a balanced view on how these leaders are addressing professionalism issues within the current health care market on both the micro and macro system levels. In addition, their perspectives on concrete means and methods to future professional success—and integration of professional principles within their systems—will also be explored.
Breakfast and refreshments will be provided. Free and open to everyone to attend.
