Professor Dr. Renata Tewes of Dresden, Germany was one of our international attendees at the Relationship-Based Care Symposium last month. 

Here are some thoughts she shared with us about the event.

What did I expect? Of course, an interesting conference, good discussions in the workshops and nice meetings with old and new colleagues during the breaks.

Nobody prepared me for what else happened on the RBC Symposium in Minneapolis. The name of the company organizing this event is Creative Health Care Management. The word creative could have been a sign, that it will not be a usual conference. It was not just interesting presentations and workshops.

It was experiencing, how it feels, when a conductor tests different leadership styles, while sitting in the middle of the orchestra. It was feeling the deep respect between a CNE and a CME while they have been explaining the importance and success of their honest relationship to each other. It was sensing the inspiring group dynamic of 400 people working with the method Appreciative Inquiry.

At the end of the conference I felt deep gratitude for being a part of this innovative process – when the participants build new relations, shared their true desires and helped in understanding – showing that building positive relationships in healthcare makes a difference. Needless to say, the empirical results of hospitals that establish Relationship-Based Care (RBC) speak for themselves.

Do I really have to wait another 4 years for the next RBC-Symposium?

Initial conversations about the next Symposium are already underway, and feedback like this is very helpful. We’d love to hear from you as well!
