Assessing Competency & Credentialing Concerns in Early- & Late-Career Practitioners

Medical staff leaders are obligated to assess each practitioner’s capacity to perform all requested privileges. Yet, who wants to tell a colleague that his or her ability to care for patients may be waning with age? To avoid singling out practitioners, some medical staffs have begun implementing policies that spell out stricter vetting and monitoring processes for older practitioners. Other medical staffs worry that these policies themselves are what single out the practitioners in question. During this 90-minute webinar, attendees will receive guidance to determine if an age-related policy is right for their organizations, identify resources for fitness-for-duty screenings, and discuss legal issues that could arise from over-vetting or under-vetting late-career practitioners.
