Winter 2018
By James Flinn, ACHE Regent

Now that the holiday seasons are behind us and we are getting back to the rigors of our industry and chosen professions, I wanted to draw your attention to a wonderful offering I read in the latest volume of The Journal of Healthcare Management entitled “Caring for the Caregivers,” by Stephen J. Swensen, MD. This article reveals that even our own patients want us, as caregivers, to take care of ourselves and each other.

Intuitively we all recognize that after the holidays our minds are recharged and focused (even if our bodies may be a bit lethargic). However that feeling of a clear and focused mind can sometimes give way to the mountain of unfinished business from the year’s end, with an extra helping of new budgetary and strategic initiatives that can overwhelm us all.

Give the article a read if you can. The conclusion is that taking care of ourselves and each other (creating a culture of esprit de corps) is a very worthwhile investment. The whole idea is to reduce the effects of burnout on our leaders and staff. This time of year is a great place to start. Additionally, I can think of no better way to take care of your “professional” self than to join us at the 2018 ACHE Congress in March. Registration is available on line at ACHE.org. I hope to see you there.

Best,
