Thread: Taking Coding to a Higher Standard?

    Default This is not "light hearted" nor "fun"

    AAPC: Back to School
    Your idea of "lighthearted and fun" seems inappropriate at the very least. My idea of "lighthearted and fun" is significantly different and does not imply that there is levity in mental health or other health related issues. Our chapter locally would not word the title of a seminar in such a manner.

    This is a professional organization and we must realize that the public consumer is watching at all times. Further if I, as an insider, find it offensive then we can assume a large contingent of the general population may as well. Fraternity house humor has no place here.

    Incidentally this IS an area where members may and should post queries, opinions and questions.

    Our local chapter is having a meeting entitled:

    "Is mental health driving you crazy?"

    Is that unprofessional? No, it is light hearted and fun.

    I personally think you guys are being a little over sensitive. And I realize that the original poster was offended by it, but couldn't you have just sent a message to AAPC instead of posting it here? was that very professional?

    I don't know, maybe I am the only one that feels that way

    Kimberlina25, the purpose of this forum is to discuss exactly these matters. As a paying member of the AAPC, and our practice pays for 10 employee memberships, I have every right to my opinion, and to discuss my opinion publicly. I did also call the AAPC and lodge a complaint.

    In any event, my post was effective, because it brought to light that many did not support the title of the webinar, and as a result, it was changed. The new title is "Colorectal Surgery".
