AMA definition of disruptive behavior: personal conduct, whether verbal or physical, that affects or that potentially may affect patient care negatively. AMA Policy E-9.045(1). The AMA disruptive behavior definition includes, but is not limited to, conduct that interferes with one’s ability to work with other members of the health care team. AMA policy, however, expressly excludes, from the definition of disruptive behavior, physician criticism “that is offered in good faith with the aim of improving patient care.”
