This training will teach you how to prepare for a medical staff professional review adverse action hearing, including what steps are necessary to afford the respondent practitioner due process.

Why Should You Attend:

It sometimes becomes necessary for the medical staff to recommend to the governing board that the medical privileges of a practitioner either be removed or denied. Before such an adverse action is taken, it is very important that the practitioner is afforded due process. That requires planning.. It is extremely important to have set the stage properly.

This session will provide the perspective of a hearing officer as to what steps should and must be taken before a corrective action is taken and how to prepare for the hearing. Specifically, actions that should be taken and should not be taken will be discussed.
