Join us for a peer review virtual workshop and get your current peer review challenges solved!

During this 2.5-hour workshop, peer review experts Robert Marder, MD, and Marla Smith, MHSA, will provide attendees with solutions to peer review issues specific to their organization. Attendees will have the opportunity to anonymously share their organization’s peer review challenges by completing a brief questionnaire in advance of the program; Marder and Smith will use this questionnaire to help attendees develop solutions. Attendees will walk away not only with solutions to their own struggles, but also with insight into how other organizations have solved their pressing peer review issues. Marder and Smith will additionally present case studies on organizations who have successfully worked through bias, culture, or logistic issues regarding peer review.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Design a peer review process that supports physician improvement and reduces bias
  • Identify and communicate physician improvement opportunities fairly and collegially
  • Create policies to enhance accountability for providers and physician leaders involved in the OPPE and FPPE process
