Meeting Notes from January 15th

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:52 pm by chads

For those of you who could not make the meeting yesterday, this is what you missed:

  • The systems thinking revolution has potential to be as impactful as the abolitionist movement was. Read “Bury the Chains”, and watch “Amazing Grace”.
  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has”- Margaret Mead.
  • We hope that, by strengthening the CST network, we will have a lasting impact on the world.
  • Some resources for study-
    • Atul Gawande- “making systems work” and BBC’s “century of the system”.
    • David Bishai on “wicked problems” and “collective impact”.
    • Helen Bevan’s tweets.
  • Hand-washing and briefly saved lives- NPR. Remember that HOW we approach affecting change matters. Ignaz Semmelweis knew WHAT to change, but may not have known HOW . We need both. Be tactful and diplomatic.
  • Dr. Swanson will act as a “guide on the side, not a sage on the stage”. Students need to take initiative, be proactive.
  • Vision: Make an exceptional, significant, historic impact in the way the world views health systems.
  • Mission: Catalyze or Contribute to a Premier Health Learning and Collective Impact Collaborative Network in the World over the next 20 Years.
  • Simple rules: be nice, accountable, bold, relentless, view everything with a CST lens, strengthen the network long-term.
