Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

Leadership and oversight of a nursing facility presents challenges to both the administrator and the medical director. The quality of the relationship between the administrator and the medical director can directly affect the function of the interdisciplinary team (IDT) and quality of care. In this session sponsored by the American Board of Post-Acute and Long Term Care (ABPLM), Dr. Edmondson, immediate past president and chair of ABPLM, will moderate a panel discussion on the quality of the relationship between the administrator and the medical director, and its direct impact on the function of the IDT and quality of care. Case studies will be presented that frame the discussion on leveraging a productive collaboration between the medical director and administrator as they drive needed change in a post-acute setting.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe benefits of collaboration between the medical director and administrator to facilitate implementation of a new electronic health record (EHR).
  • Identify opportunities for increased engagement between the medical director and administrator of the long-term care facility.
  • Discuss the impact of dysfunctional and productive relationships between the administrator and medical director on nursing, social services, and physical therapy.
  • Develop strategies to promote recognition of and adaptation to a dysfunctional relationship between the medical director and administrator.
