Message from Your ACHE Regent
Summer 2018

Dear ACHE Colleagues,

I hope you are having an enjoyable summer. It seems until just recently the intensity of the year followed us through July. Now August (the "Sunday night" of summer) is well upon us. These times require the highest levels of leadership performance from setting vision, aligning systems and engaging teams around the mission of healthcare delivery. I’d like to bring a few resources and opportunities to your attention.

Leading a Culture of Safety: A Blueprint for Success

Creating a culture of safety in healthcare settings is a challenging endeavor. Until now, there have not been clear roadmaps for organizational leaders to take in developing such a culture. So, we collaborated with leaders of progressive healthcare organizations and globally renowned experts in leadership, safety, and culture to develop the resource, Leading a Culture of Safety: A Blueprint for Success.

ACHE’s leadership development expertise coupled with the IHI/NPSF’s in-depth insight on safety practices, offers healthcare leaders the foundational tools to measure, build and sustain a culture of safety in the workplace.

FACHE: more than letters after your name, it’s a commitment to be a part of a learning community of peers. Become Board Certified
