The Institute for Medical Quality's ""Stepping Up to Leadership"" program slated for March in San Diego will feature keynote speaker Nancy Dickey, M.D., family practitioner and the first female president of the American Medical Association. “Dr. Dickey is a dynamic speaker with real-life experience; she’s unquestionably a leader and a problem-solver,” said IMQ President Jill Silverman. “She walks the walk.”
The Stepping Up to Leadership program was created by the California Medical Association (CMA) Institute for Medical Quality (IMQ) in partnership with the University of California at San Diego PACE Program in response to a commonly expressed need for better, more practical hands-on training for medical staff leaders.
The program covers effective staff leadership, credentialing and privileging, assessing the needs of the organization, using CME effectively, resolving on-call issues, improved communication skills, using quality measures effectively, legal considerations, and managing disruptive or impaired colleagues. The combination of administrative, communicative, and quality-oriented skills and solutions is intended for medical staff leaders from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences, and entire medical staffs are encouraged to attend.
The 2014 Stepping Up to Leadership program will take place March 6-8 at the Loews Coronado Bay Hotel in San Diego. For more information, visit www.imq.org/Education/ConferencesWorkshopsWebinars.aspx.
