We are humbled by the responses to the Ghost Busting in Healthcare essay series. In particular, we are overwhelmed by the feedback from care providers, middle management and patient advocates. Because of this feedback, we have decided to create another series of essays dedicated to these three groups. They are important voices that bring a balance of the current reality and signs of hope for the future.
We want all of the front line providers, middle managers and patient advocates, to consider these questions and would like to invite them to co-author a 500-word essay and include what you see as the Ghost of Healthcare Consciousness.
What will it take for us to achieve a new dynamic wholeness in the healthcare system?
What will it take to build a system that is cohesive, flexible, interconnected, cost-effective, orderly and that values the patient voice?
Deadline date for submissions is April 23, 2013. All material submitted is subject to editorial review and acceptance by Longwoods. We will be in contact with those chosen to collaborate on their essay submissions. Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
