New release, fully updated! The American Medical Association Physician's Guide to Medical Staff Organization Bylaws, fifth edition, is an outstanding reference manual for drafting or amending medical staff bylaws. In addition to providing bylaws language that supports self-governance, this resource addresses the new Joint Commission Standard MS.01.01.01, as well as other emerging issues in health care that impact the medical staff.
Because medical staff bylaws are considered a contract and legally binding in most states, it is extremely important that they are current, well written and thoughtfully organized. The new, fifth edition makes that possible by offering practical guidance on bylaws development, model bylaws language, self-governance, credentialing, due process, corrective action, quality assessment and improvement, and emerging issues and recent trends in medical staff re-engineering.
