The program for the next Symposium for Physician Executives is available!
If you are a physician executive, you know that it is impossible for you to avoid all conflicts, but you can certainly hone your ability to anticipate them and introduce good strategies to minimize their negative impact. This is what you will learn at the QMA’s 4th Symposium for Physician Executives where numerous speakers will address the topic of conflict prevention, from confrontation to collaboration, on Friday, November 30, 2018, at the Hôtel Vogue in Montréal.
The preliminary program (in French) is now available on the symposium Web site.
Dr. Hugo Viens will open the morning conferences with a post-election presentation on the new and current political issues that affect physician executives and their work environment.
Mylaine Breton and Luc Provost will then present efficient medical organization models and an analysis of modern clinical governance issues. This conference will enable physician executives to better define the manoeuvring room they have in order to manage their team.
To help physician executives decode their political context in order to have more effective influence, Pierre Lainey from the Department of Management at HEC Montréal will give a presentation on Le sens politique : être stratégique dans l’exercice de l’influence (political sense and being strategic when exercising influence).
Sometimes it is possible to avoid a conflict or reduce its intensity by taking action in advance. Andrée Cyr, a coach and trainer, will start the afternoon with a conference on the warning signs of a conflict. This presentation will be followed by a working session that will enable participants to identify and prioritize the strategic actions to take to head off a conflict.
Workplace conflicts can also occur because of a team member who has so-called toxic behaviour. Jean Poitras, from the Department of Human Resources Management at HEC Montréal, will help participants protect their team from toxic personalities by sharing a few strategies to take back the power to influence their work environment.
The registration cost is the same as last year at $370. Because space is limited, it is recommended that you register quickly if you wish to attend.
