Meeting the Challenge: Managing Difficult and Noncompliant Patients
Healthcare providers often accept patients into their practices, but later regret these decisions based on the emergence of difficult or noncompliant patient behaviors. Identifying the potential for these behaviors and learning how to manage them is key to successful provider–patient relationships. In rare but severe circumstances the safety of the staff may be put at risk. This program provides participants with information about managing difficult and noncompliant patient behaviors by addressing situational circumstances, provider/staff issues, and patient factors and proactively planning for escalating situations.
The educational design addresses the needs and issues of healthcare providers including physicians, nurses, physician assistants, healthcare administrators, and office practice managers.
This activity is planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the Oklahoma State Medical Association (OSMA) and PLICO.
