Are You Leading for Safety?
Healthcare leaders are guided by the highest calling—to care for those who entrust their care to us. This means that we must keep our patients and workforce safe. Improving healthcare safety requires leaders who are committed to take a stand.
 
That is why ACHE has partnered with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement/National Patient Safety Foundation Lucian Leape Institute and other safety experts to help healthcare leaders take a stand.
 
Join us and commit to leading for safety by signing the We Lead for Safety pledge online at ache.org/Safety. While you are there, you can find resources, tools, self-assessments and best practices to help your organization measure, build and sustain a culture of safety.

Attend a Local Prep Course for the BOG Exam
A new review course is available to help ACHE Members prepare for the Board of Governors Examination. The BOG Exam Prep: Brought to You by ACHE and Your Local Chapter includes a thorough content review of the 10 knowledge areas addressed in the Exam, practice test questions and test-taking strategies. Participants may earn up to 12 hours of Face-to-Face Education credit when they complete the review course.
 
Three ACHE chapters recently piloted the BOG Exam Prep, and course revisions are being made based on participants’ feedback. The national rollout for the course is planned for September 2018.
 
Members who would like to take the new review course through a local ACHE chapter should contact their chapter leadership to learn more and express their interest in preparing for the Exam.
 
BOG Exam Prep is also available as an On-Location Program. Contact Katherine M. Stack, FACHE, manager, program development, Division of Professional Development, at (312) 424-9304 or kstack@ache.org for more information.

 
Share Your Professional Announcements
Improve your visibility in the healthcare field and build your professional brand by sharing career updates with ACHE. Have you started a new job or been promoted recently? Are you planning to retire? If the answer is yes, then get yourself listed in the "On the Move" section of Healthcare Executive magazine! All you have to do is email the job title, organization and location of both your former and your new job, as well as a high-resolution headshot, to he-editor@ache.org
 
 
Offering a Postgraduate Fellowship? ACHE Can Help
