Knowledge provides the foundation. Discernment permits interpretation to create actionable information. Creativity formulates the information in new ways. Vision creates images of a better future that are attainable through focused, organized, and systematic work.
The Colloquium has profound knowledge in its expert members. The dynamic interchange between members refines information to make it actionable. Our flexible approach permits local adaptation. The vision of a better tomorrow for those with heart failure takes on various forms and has many faces. Within our adaptive organization lies a central theme: Relationship – Relationship care for those we name as patients and their families; relationships with each other we name as members.
To emerge successfully in meeting the needs of those with heart failure in the post health care reform era, it will take the profound knowledge of visionaries translated into real action by real people in real hospitals dedicated to service to their communities. It is that combination of knowledge, vision, and action that the Colloquium seeks. If you want to be part of meaningful change the Colloquium may be the crucible for change you seek.
