Coaching: Lessons Learned Through Harsh Experience (E) (No CME)
This session has been identified and designated as Credit to Address Regulatory Mandate for Ethics.
Moderator: John B. Hanks, MD, FACS, Charlottesville, VA
Co-moderator: Gerald B. Healy, MD, FACS, Boston, MA
Many areas of surgery are fraught with tension and stress, not solely related to clinical issues. Resolution is often difficult among peers and superiors. Older surgeons often learned lifelong lessons through such encounters. Our panel will consist of senior surgeons; a chair and a program Director; younger surgeons; and a chief resident and junior attending. Three to four cases of situational ethics will be discussed: Anger management by a senior surgeon, falsification of clinical data by a chief resident, and harassment of operating room personnel. Discussion will include how to communicate concerns and resolution.
