Learn about a paradigm that can transform health care.

Keynote Address, 36th Annual Pacific Northwest National Conference on Advanced Practice in Primary and Acute Care - November 1, 2013

While healthcare costs are going up, we are seeing little to indicate a good return on our healthcare dollar. The opportunity is ripe for healthcare professionals to take the lead in healthcare transformation! Learn more about a paradigm that can transform health care and bring back both "health" and "care" into your practice. 

Notes to user: The speaker makes references to a subsequent presentation that is listed separately as "Evidence-Based Medicine."
