Enhanced activation and restorative care

As the Canadian population ages, it becomes increasingly important for hospitals to address and implement programs and policies that ensure elderly patients are receiving the right care in the right place at the right time. Despite the vast majority of elderly patients being healthier than ever, it is important to recognize the rapid deconditioning that occurs when they are admitted to an acute care hospital. Although it is recognized that children need to be treated differently, we fail to recognize the same is true for older adults.

Our history: New pin for CHEs / Notre historie: Nouvelle épinglette

(Le texte français suit.)

The College's current
CHE pin.
“Achieving the professional designation of Certified Health Executive (CHE) is certainly a personal and professional accomplishment — and now it will be easier to distinguish those members who are holder of this “mark of distinction,” says David Richardson, CHE, and Chairman of the Professional Services Committee.

Mr. Richardson is referring to the new CHE pin which will be distributed to existing CHEs later this year and to those new CHEs who will be honored at the National Conference Convocation in June. He estimates that the pin will be given to approximately 1000 CHEs.
