Berks County Medical Society Medical Record Summer 2018 - 15

* Be compassionate and show that you care about the physician
and his/her well-being. There is nothing more off-putting than
delivery of potentially devastating news in a brisk, matter-of-fact
manner.
* Put yourself in the physician's shoes - the information that will
be imparted to the physician may change the course of a storied
career, one that may have been decades in the making. Consider
the impact on the physician and expect some negative feedback
to the news you are about to deliver. The impact can be softened
with the next technique.

The LifeGuard program is a nationally recognized clinical
skills assessment program. LifeGuard conducts fitness for
duty evaluations for physicians and other providers who
have had medical events or concerns with cognition over
the last nine years.

* Provide viable alternatives and suggestions for change in
practice when applicable. Even if a physician cannot continue
practicing as a surgeon due to medical or physical concerns, for
example, he/she may be able to teach, conduct peer review, or
work in telemedicine.
Information regarding performance declines and change of
practice is difficult to give, but it is even more difficult to hear.
The devastation and heartbreak of such life-altering news may be
softened if the conversation is handled carefully, allowing a physician
dignity and fostering a sense of his/her continued value to the
medical community and the patients served.
