Conference Brochure

The Program for Distressed Physicians is organized by University of Florida (UF) College of Medicine and will be held from Oct 09 - 11, 2019 at UF Springhill Health Center, Gainesville, Florida, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 47.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.

Target Audience:

The Program for Distressed Physicians is a three-day CME course (with three additional 1-day follow-up sessions) developed to address the specific needs of physicians whose workplace behavior has become problematic. This course combines didactic presentations, role-play with focused feedback, group feedback from peers and colleagues, plus review of workplace/family complaints. Participants will receive training in alternative behaviors and explore cognitive distortions that relate to their problems. The course will focus on the problems identified by specific complaints. The solutions are reinforced by role-play, feedback, testing, and group accountability.

This three day course includes components examining:

• Teach new skills in the recognition and expression of emotions that lead to disruptive behavior.
• Provide a syllabus of selected readings and resources for the distressed physician.
• Teach the range of disruptive behavior.
• Provide strategies for the prevention of inappropriate behavior.
• Provide follow-up and support in maintaining behavior changes.
• Evaluate the effectiveness of the course based on feedback from the workplace monitoring system.

Upon the completion of this program, the participant should be able to:
• Know and understand the issues around disruptive behavior and promote prevention treatment of physicians.
• Discuss healthy boundaries and appropriate expression of emotions among staff colleagues and patients.
• Identify the risk factors and development of the distressed physician.
• Understand the socialization of physicians and medical school and residency that contribute to maladaptive behavior patterns.
• Identify family or origin issues that may contribute to behavior problems.
• Identify personal risk factors by completing assessment instruments.
• Identify relapse prevention strategies.
• Discuss disruptive behavior from the viewpoint of staff, patients, colleagues, and administrators.
