2014 ASPR Board of Directors Nominations and Elections

http://aspr.org/associations/10362/files/ElectionsAhead.jpgThe ASPR Board of Directors elections are coming up! This year we will elect the Secretary, the Vice President - Engagement and the Vice President - Governance. The terms for these positions will begin in August 2014 and end in May 2016. The reason for the term ending in May 2016 is due to the transition of the ASPR Annual Conference from August to May. The official transition of Board Members occurs at the ASPR Annual Business Meeting which is held at the Annual Conference.

Active committee participation is defined as attending 75 percent of the committee meetings (a waiver may be granted in recognition of contributions made outside of committee meetings for those that may not meet the 75 percent requirement). Board Members must be willing and able to travel to leadership meetings and the Annual Conference (expenses reimbursed), attend monthly Board Meetings via phone, and carry out the duties and responsibilities delineated in the official job description.

Webinar Next Week – Screening Candidates and the Law

Register today for this FREE webinar on February 26 at 1 p.m. EST. Can’t make it?  View it later on demand!

Presenter: Anna Jarecki, AccuCheck

Sponsored by: PracticeLink logo

I can't ask that ... can I? Living in a litigious society means hospitals are vulnerable if patients feel an outcome is negative; but what about screening candidates? What if a candidate is dissatisfied with your process and outcome? Is your screening process compliant? Are documents up to date? Better check it out before you check them out or you could find yourself in legal hot water!

The world of background checks has changed considerably in the past 20 years. There is more information available but also more restrictions and regulations governing its use. How can you screen thoroughly and effectively without violating state or federal laws? Find out how different laws impact everything from the questions you are asking to what to do with negative information if any is revealed.

This webinar will cover the FCRA, the CFPB, the EEOC, FACTA, using Social Media and more. You’ll learn what you can ask, what you can uncover and what can you use during the screening process. Legally!

Learning Objectives:

  • Review internal process for compliance with federal regulations, applicable state statutes and/or local ordinances.
  • Review internal documentation for violations and exclusions/inclusions of prohibited/permitted language.
  • Examine content/scope of current screening results for adequacy, relevance and compliance.
  • Recognize areas of concern requiring updates and be able to provide input for improvement based upon sources and references provided in presentation.


Chat Monitors Needed

http://aspr.org/associations/10362/files/woman_working_computer.jpgThe ASPR Resource Library Committee is responsible for monitoring ASPR Chat to identify items that may be relevant for the Resource Library. The committee currently has a few openings in its monthly chat monitoring schedule and is looking for volunteers to help out. Volunteers are needed for April, May, September and December.

Being a chat monitor is easy and doesn’t require much of a time commitment. During the assigned month, chat monitors follow these guidelines:

  1. Watch ASPR Chat for documents or discussions that may be relevant and useful to add to the Resource Library.
  2. Send an email to the author of the document to obtain a release of information (when applicable).
  3. Monitor physician recruitment industry news for surveys, reports and data that can be published.
  4. Send all documents obtained to the co-chairs for inclusion in the next committee meeting.

If you would like to help the ASPR Resource Library Committee, please email one of the co-chairs:  Diane Collins or Aymee Quinn.


Reminder – Residency Education Presentations and Tools Available

http://aspr.org/associations/10362/files/NPs_answering_questions.jpgMany ASPR members provide educational presentations to help residents and fellows with their job search. We do this for two reasons – first to provide helpful information to trainees that they would otherwise not receive from their programs, and second, to get an opportunity to get face to face contact with them and hope that they may want one of our positions that we’re recruiting for!

ASPR is pleased to provide our members with resources to help educate residents and fellows on a variety of topics which will assist them with their job search as they transition from training to practice. These resources will help you empower residents and fellows as they launch and manage their job search. Our hope is that ASPR members will provide education at their local and regional training programs and refer residents and fellows to the ASPR website to connect directly with our members.

You will find the Resident Education Resources in the Members Only section of the ASPR website. You will find available several PowerPoint presentations geared toward residents as well as some geared toward Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. You will also find some additional documents that are available to download and share with residents that cover individual topics in more detail. Our "toolbox” also provides recommendations on how to use the resources and tips on gaining access to training programs.

Please use these resources and if the residents and fellows are not interested in staying in your area, please refer them to Physician Resources to access our member directory to connect with colleagues in other parts of the country and search our physician job board.
