Karen Appold, a writer for The Rheumatologist, offers advice from medical professionals regarding the most effective way to conduct a meeting within their medical practice.
Mary K. Crow, MD, chief of rheumatology at Hospital for Special Surgery, offers insight into how she conducts a productive meeting with her staff. Dr. Crow discusses the importance of agenda setting, brainstorming, action planning, and handling conflict.
