I am  excited to let you all know about Creative Health Care Management‘s newest book publication!

It is called Advancing Relationship-Based Cultures, and I love both the content and the book’s authenticity regarding health care today.

Edited by Mary Koloroutis, and David Abelson, the book explores the  culture of health care organizations, what is  necessary for optimal outcomes, and strategies to achieve those outcomes.

Advancing Relationship-Based Cultures explains and expands a fundamental and often overlooked truth in health care: It is the confluence of relational and clinical competence that advances healing cultures.

A relationship-based culture is one in which a critical mass of people provides care and service with relational competence. In these cultures, the skills that foster relational competence are actively developed, nurtured, practiced, reinforced, and evaluated. While countless thought leaders have championed the importance of improving relationships, this book provides vision and strategies for system-wide culture transformation….and it does so with a depth and authenticity that is breathtaking.

Readers of this book will understand that a strategy that includes improving all relationships will improve all other measures as well. When you empower people, giving them the tools to take excellent care of themselves, one another, and the patients and families in their care; organizations thrive and patient-care is optimal.
