With hospitals making ever increasing investments in physician recruitment and employment in preparation for health reform and to deal with market competition, physician engagement has become increasingly important. It is no longer sufficient to recruit and onboard physicians in organizations that are moving toward the creation of integrated systems that require significant physician engagement. In this webinar, Dr. Barber will provide the science behind effective physician engagement as well as share his experience of engaging physicians. He will explain the inner workings of the physician social network in a medical community and explore how it can be used to engage physicians.

Question of the Week: Physician Stress and Burnout
Do you have a suggestion for a Question of the Week?
ASPR is looking for more topics! Send your questions and possible answers to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you to those who responded to last week's question of the week. We had 52 responses to the question, “Does your organization have any programs in place that address physician stress and/or burnout?”
Have You Referred a New Member Lately?
Have you heard? ASPR has a Member Referral Program! It’s been in place for many years, but we’re not so sure you know about it! Here’s how it works. Whenever a new member joins ASPR, they are asked how they became aware of our organization. If they were referred by an ASPR member, the name of that member is requested.
For every member referral that ASPR receives, $10 is placed in a “pot”. Every time YOUR name is listed as someone who referred a new member, your name is entered into a raffle for a chance to win the “pot”. If the “pot” gets large enough (and it usually does), we divvy it up into two or more cash prizes. The raffle drawing takes place at the ASPR Annual Business Meeting to reward a few lucky members for their referrals. Prizes are typically in the $250-$275 range….that’s no chump change!
Refer someone to ASPR today (and every day) and make sure your name is entered for a chance to win the 2012 drawing! The more referrals, the bigger the “pot”, and the more chances you have to win! Thanks for the referrals! Keep ‘em comin’!
