Our Mission & Goals

Mission

Our mission is to promote more ethical health partnerships throughout the network of relationships that forms healthcare. By ‘ethical’ we mean relationships that are characterized by:
      Personal responsibility and accountability
      Respect
      Care and value of the well-being of the other as much as that of oneself
      Justice and fairness to all
      Integrity

      Collaboration (See What Is Relationship for more on ethical relationship)

Goals:

Through education, advocacy and legislative action, our goals are:

  • To contribute to the quality of healthcare, the safety of the patient, and more responsible and effective management of the costs of healthcare.

  • To empower patients both in their own healthcare and in shaping healthcare policy.

  • To promote policies which serve to strengthen the patient/physician relationship and the relationships with other healthcare practitioners involved in the patient’s care.
  • To value and protect the quality and availability of our healthcare by supporting the well-being of those who care for us while maintaining patient-centered focus.

  • To support the legitimate needs of third parties without permitting the damage or undue burden on patients and their doctors, nurses and other practitioners.

  • To make ethical partnership the guiding principle to achieve the goals of healthcare -- quality care to promote optimal health for the patient.

As always, I welcome your constructive comments and suggestions about the material on this website and how we can all be most effective in co-creating the kind of healthcare system we all want.
