From the Foreword:
This publication marks the birth of a new era in health care. It ushers in a new consciousness of the deep dimensions of health and healing. At the core of this new consciousness are relationships and caring. What is special about this publication is that it offers practical models to guide practitioners in transforming care delivery-from the inside out.
Since the national Pew-Fetzer report(Tressolini, 1994) on health care reform and relationship-centered care, there have been myriad efforts, activities, publications, research initiatives, newsletters, and practice incentives designed to re-establish relationships and caring as the basis for transformation of health care practitioners, systems, and delivery models.
In this book, to transform specifically means to change the condition of what currently exists. According to the authors of this book, transformative change requires three things:
- Leaders at all levels of the organization who are committed to the change;
- Adoption by the organization of a methodology for the change it desires; and
- Clear communication of goals-conveyed comprehensively and persuasively enough to inspire all who are actively engaged in
