Anger Management for Physicians and Healthcare Professionals

Hospital personnel including physicians can have a style of behavior or behaviors that undermine a culture of safety which interferes with patient care. Certain physician behavior compromises patient care which can increase risk of lawsuits making a costly liability. Behaviors such as intimidation of staff, patients and family members, along with loud or offensive comments, are considered to be detrimental to patient care. Since professionals are oftentimes very knowledgeable and experienced, it would be more cost efficient to correct the behavior rather than terminate the physician or healthcare professional. This customized anger management program will meet the need of the professional who:

  1. Wants to reduce interpersonal conflict in their workplace environment;
  2. Desires to improve communication and anger management skills;
  3. Has been referred by either human resources, or risk management departments.

From the outpatient clinics to the intensity of ICU and operating rooms, high levels of stress, frustration and conflict have become mundane. Behaviors undermining a culture of safety may be the result of either lacking interpersonal skills or experiencing problems that are more severe including substance abuse or depression. Anger management for physicians and healthcare professionals will help providers who have contributed to a conflicting and unsafe working environment.

Cognitive-Behavioral approach is used helping to counter hurtful thinking that interferes with relations at work.
