Health System Literacy

Our health care system is struggling.  To be part of the solution, we must first understand the context within which we work and provide care to our patients. 

Emotional Intelligence

How we relate with others translates into how others perceive us.  Do we inspire people to want to work with us, or would they rather we step aside?
