AomegaA and professionalism in medicine-continued

Richard L Byyny
Submitted: January, 2013

Lapses in professionalism provide important learning opportunities, both for the physician who has lapsed and for the medical community as a whole. Current interventions or remediation programs for lapses in professionalism in medical schools, residencies, and clinical practice vary widely. There are no recognized best practices. We defined an important list of topics to be supported and funded in the following areas: 1) How do we most effectively use existing data on professionalism and experiences with remediation? 2) How can we generate new evidence to guide interventions for those who have displayed lapses in professionalism? Time to focus on developing evidence-based best-practice interventions and remediation to deal with lapses in medical professionalism. Called for 2015 AOA conference.
