  Medical engagement--the active and positive contributions of doctors within their normal working roles--is positively associated with the organizational performance of hospitals. In practice, positive medical engagement is an outcome of the complex interplay between individual and organizational dynamics.

     Peder Ahnfeldt-Mollerup, MD, PhD, GP, has been studying patterns of medical engagement in the Danish Healthcare System (DHS). In the first part of the session, Ahnfeldt-Mollerup will discuss the importance of medical engagement to the well being of the DHS and how administrators and leaders can facilitate engagement at all levels of their institution. 

     A panel discussion on medical engagement at the Stony Brook University School of Medicine, facilitated by Latha Chandran, MD, MPH, and featuring members of the School of Medicine leadership team and Ahnfeldt-Mollerup will follow. Opportunities for facilitating engagement at both the physician and organizational level will be discussed. 

     This session is for hospital administrators, leaders, faculty, and anyone interested in the importance of positive medical engagement to the well being of the healthcare system.
