Understanding Disruption in Distressed Physicians & Medical Organizations

Historically, disruptive behavior in the workplace was attributed to an individual’s difficulty with anger management. In fact, the problem is more complex and includes organizational as well as team/department factors. Nevertheless, individual difficulties with self-regulation, conflict resolution, risk management, reputational awareness, and diplomacy are critical to successfully negotiating the risks of interdependent collaboration. Adaptive self-regulation in the face of organizational dysfunction is a matter of clinical-professional competence. As the delivery of medical services changes, clinicians need to be informed and adapt to these changes in order to thrive.
