“Good intentions, and kind impulses do not necessarily lead to wise and truly humane measure…Nowhere is wisdom more necessary than in the guidance of charitable impulses. Meaning well is only half our duty; thinking right is the other and equally important half.”
Mindful of the importance of thinking right, Family Lives advises its members – patients and families, nurses and therapists, staff, supervisors, and administrators – to be lifelong learners. To this end, the Organization recommends to its members reading articles and books, viewing films and television programs, and attending presentations, series, and workshops that illuminate the nature of healthcare in the modern world.
A selection of recommended readings, viewings, and attendings follows.
Nurses and therapists who meet eligibility requirements for tuition reimbursement and wish to purchase recommended readings or viewings or to register for recommended presentations, series, and workshops may apply the benefit towards said purchases or registrations.
