With all the useful information available on Physicians Practice, it is easy to become overwhelmed.

With this in mind, the tip of the week is a chance to reflect on some of the wisdom found all across the site. In the May 2021 article on effectively managing medical practice staff, Carol Stryker writes the following:

1). Training - Provide staff with references that help them stay on track. An operations manual, checklists, and forms help standardize routine activities.

2). Direct supervision and leadership - Cut out all extraneous details to abridge your timeline. And don't try to squeeze everything you know into one speech. Instead, have an overarching theme and support it with three to five sub-points.
