education & careers Central Michigan University has opportunity to achieve 30,000 enrollment President George E. Ross delivers State of the University address Central Michigan University President George E. Ross said now is CMU’s “time of opportunityâ€? as he challenged the campus community to achieve a total enrollment of 30,000 students during his 2014 State of the University address recently. “Maintaining 20,000 students on campus is the first challenge we face together,â€? Ross said. “Reaching 10,000 students through Global Campus is the second. These are our challenges. And reaching 30,000 students is our opportunity.â€? Ross said shrinking numbers of college-age students in Michigan threatens to lower the university’s on-campus enrollment to 17,500 by 2020. That would represent a loss of about $50 million in annual revenue. However, by rallying together as it did the past year, the campus community can hit the 30,000 target, he said. Ross credited the efforts of all CMU employees, students and alumni in turning around three years of enrollment declines, with a nearly 27 percent increase in this year’s fall freshman class. CMU also saw increases in international students and on-campus graduate students. “As we celebrate this success, we also need to be inspired by it,â€? Ross said. “We must wage a ‘forever campaign’ to recruit students ‌ and to retain students once they’re here. We must be innovative in the education we deliver. “Faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends and trustees of CMU, make no mistake: we are part of an incredible university,â€? Ross said. “Make no mistake: When we continue our collective and concerted efforts, we will keep our on-campus enrollment at 20,000.â€? Ross noted the growth opportunity of CMU’s Global Campus, with a No. 1 ranking for undergraduate online programs from U.S. News and World Report and its pioneering efforts in delivering degrees at remote locations. “Today, CMU’s Global Campus enrollment is nearly 7,500. And I have to say: We are missing a golden opportunity if we don’t take a serious look at how we grow our Global Campus enrollment to at least 10,000,â€? Ross said.

Ross cited a $95 million Biosciences Building, classroom renovations with the latest technology, and an expanding College of Medicine presence in Saginaw as reasons to celebrate. Yet, he credited the university’s 2,600 faculty and staff for building indelible connections with students and inspiring their success. “We have stayed true to who we are for 122 years,� Ross said. “Our brand — the CMU brand — happens when

we deliver academic excellence with hands-on, personalized learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom. It happens when we put a spotlight on CMU’s unmistakable maroon and gold and when we deliver that great sense of community as we nurture student and alumni success. “CMU is a university that students choose because it prepares them for leadership and success in their careers, in their lives and in their communities.� provided

Nurse’s Viewpoint

By Alison Lazzaro, RN

Hospital Newspaper Correspondent

Lifting the Stigma: Reforming Mental Health Mental illness affects 61.5 million Americans. One in 17 Americans lives with serious mental illness such as schizophrenia, major depression or bipolar disorder. The American Medical Association describes mental illness as the nation's number one health problem. It currently sends more people to the hospital than cancer, lung, and heart disease combined. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among people ages 15-24. Every day, 22 veterans die from suicide. Sadly, suicide is the second leading cause of death in college students. Serious mental illness costs Americans $193.2 billion in lost earnings and productivity every year. Not addressing the lack of access to mental health care can lead to higher rates of high school dropouts, unemployment, incarceration, hospitalization, and homelessness. Since mental illness does not discriminate between gender, race, age, or socioeconomic status, support for mental health legislation should equally cross party lines. Two current bills are in Congress regarding mental health reform: “H.R. 3717, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act,” and H.R. 4575, “Strengthening Mental Health in our Communities Act of 2014.” Some highlights of the bills are federal resources for jail diversion, increased resources for suicide prevention, and grants for tele-psychiatry for treatment of mental health disorders. Additionally, the bills provide protections for access to psychiatric medicines through Medicare and Medicaid and financial incentives for substance abuse treatment programs. Opposition to this bill includes those who do not believe mental illness even exists or that it requires the same status of treatment as medical diseases. There are no easy biomarkers that can be tested for in the laboratory in order provide a positive diagnosis of depression. There is no easy recovery for every individual with mental illness. However, to say that there are no chemical imbalances in the brain and that these medications do not make life livable for the population is an outrage. People living with mental illnesses like depression face a negative stigma, hiding their illness to disguise what society thinks might be a personal weakness. What happens when people with depression do not have access to medication and treatment? These people cannot just “snap out of it.” Why is it acceptable to take medication and seek treatment for stomach pain, knee pain, and diabetes, but treatment for the brain is seen as illegitimate? Right now it is actually easier to obtain access to a gun than it is to get access to mental health treatment. There is little legislation for preventing illness from escalating to crisis. As nurses, I urge you to back these mental health reform bills because the consequences of non-treatment are devastating to avoid homelessness, incarceration, episodes of violence, suicide and fiscal losses of non-productivity. Nurses have the ability to enact political change and ensure positive steps to mental health reform. Be an advocate for your patients suffering from mental illness - speak up, disband the negative stigmas, and support policy changes to improve access to mental health treatment.

William Dalsey, MD, FACEP, chairman of the Department of Emergency Medicine at Capital Health, was named 2014 Distinguished Emergency Department Director. The award is given by Blue Jay Consulting, the Emergency Medicine Foundation, and American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). The award is given to an outstanding emergency department director who demonstrates collaborative efforts to improve healthcare. Dr. Dalsey’s passion for emergency medicine has been recognized outside of Emergency Medical Associates on numerous occasions. He received the 2013 Outstanding Physician Assistant Educator/Mentor Award from the New Jersey State Society of Physician Assistants. Dr. Dalsey also has earned the NJACEP Heroes Award, NJ-ACEP Clinician of the Year Award and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus’ “Caring For and About People” Humanitarian Award, among other accolades. " In a very short period of time, Dr. Dalsey has been able to work with the existing medical staff, allied health staff, ED nurses and support departments to successfully improve our quality metrics and patient satisfaction scores,” said Larry DiSanto, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Capital Health. “We’re proud of the nationally recognized work that Dr. Dalsey and his colleagues are doing to im-

plement innovative strategies at both of our medical centers to help patients receive the best, most efficient emergency care possible,” said Eileen Horton, vice president of Patient Services and chief nursing officer at Capital Health. “Dr. Dalsey has been with Emergency Medical Associates since 2001, and during this time I have seen repeated examples of his ability to work collaboratively with nursing and other departments to improve processes in the emergency department. The outcome of his work consistently leads to improvements in quality and patient satisfaction,” explains Ray Iannaccone, MD, FACEP, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of Emergency Medical Associates. Dr. Dalsey, a partner of Emergency Medical Associates, was instrumental in helping make drastic improvements to the emergency departments at Capital Health’s two hospitals. “He possesses the distinct skills needed to be a collaborative leader, and his ability to nurture and grow pertinent relationships is truly remarkable. His leadership style is clearly based on a belief system that any organization is only as effective as the sum of its parts, and to that end endorses a team approach toward goal achievement,” said Dr. Iannaccone. “These skills continue to contribute to an atmosphere that inherently improves quality.”

Ask An Expert Physician Collaboration Drives Cost Savings By Christopher J. O'Connor Executive Vice President, GNYHA Ventures, Inc., President GNYHA Services, Inc. and President, Nexera, Inc. Like never before, hospital leadership must employ every possible method to reduce costs, including the implementation of a supply chain management plan that is defined by solid, strategic physician relationships. Hospital leadership needs to identify physician stakeholders and educate them about their vital interest in the healthcare supply spend. One way to initiate these relationships is to invite clinicians to join your hospital’s value analysis team, or better yet, to lead it. Many clinical purchasing decisions, after all, are made by habit rather than by evaluating the evidence. When physicians are incorporated into the value analysis team and empowered with comparative data on the cost and efficacy of clinical products, they are much more willing to initiate product changes. Once physicians embrace their role on the value analysis team, they learn how their changes actually improve the bottom line while preserving the quality of care. In turn, hospital leaders must ensure that the necessary tools are in place to measure the success of the value analysis program and then make certain those results are communicated to stakeholders. Such collaboration enables physicians to see the positive results that are directly attributable to leaving their clinical comfort zones. Of course, value analysis is just one area in which to forge strategic physician relationships. Hospital leaders should pursue other opportunities to engage physicians in strategic processes to produce positive changes for their institutions, especially those focused on the quality of care. Quality improvement initiatives foster collaboration across disciplines, providing a forum where different members of the care team work together to solve problems. This same method of communication can and should be used to build strategic relationships between the medical staff and supply chain leadership. Strong physician relationships require regular, meaningful, two-way communication between doctors and senior management. It is critical for hospital leaders to be good listeners who work with physicians to craft solutions based on clinical needs. When the C-suite controls the dialogue and sets rigid parameters for the decision-making process, it furthers the divide between management and clinicians, making it difficult to resolve problems or take advantage of great ideas. I have a colleague who likes to say, “You need to be able to call a physician by his or her first name.” What she’s really saying is that hospital leaders must build relationships with physicians based on a foundation of trust and respect. Those relationships can then be used to move the facility’s supply chain strategy forward with full clinical endorsement so that it meets physicians’ needs while achieving purchasing economy. The bottom line is that successful cost-reduction strategies must move healthcare professionals—both hospital leadership and clinicians—out of a silo culture toward a culture of collaboration. The C-suite should be candid about the challenges of delivering quality care in the current environment and invite physicians to be catalysts of change, helping to find solutions for a healthier future for patients and hospitals alike. Christopher J. O’Connor is Executive Vice President of GNYHA Ventures, Inc., the for-profit arm of the Greater New York Hospital Association, and President of two GNYHA Ventures companies: GNYHA Services, Inc., an acute care group purchasing organization, and Nexera, Inc., a healthcare consulting firm. Mr. O’Connor is also Chair of the Association for Healthcare Resource & Materials Management (AHRMM).

ColumbiaDoctors of the Hudson Valley Cardiologist Dr. Joseph Lee offers tips on prevention of cardiovascular disease Dr. Lee speaks before AARP Rockland at monthly luncheon At a recent meeting of the Rockland chapter of AARP, held at the JCC in West Nyack, ColumbiaDoctors of the Hudson Valley (CDHV) cardiologist Dr. Joseph M. Lee, M.D., M.S., R.P.V.I, presented to more than 75 community members about prevention of major cardiovascular diseases. During his presentation, Dr. Lee addressed early identification of life-threatening conditions, such as heart attack, stroke, aortic dissection, acute limb loss, deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism beyond managing the traditional risk factors of high blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, and smoking. “Cardiovascular disease is currently the leading cause of death here in the United States and globally,” said Dr. Lee. “I’m here today to help bring awareness to “vascular” disease, which is often underdiagnosed and undertreated before it is too late.” Dr. Lee shared the tools he uses to detect a wide range of cardiovascular disease conditions, identify high-risk patients and provide treatment options that reduce the patient’s overall cardiovascular risk. In addition to

Dr. Lee also has achieved Level III proficiency in Adult Comprehensive Echocardiography and Cardiac Electrophysiology.

Lenox Hill Hospital opens new Exhibition and Study Center Lenox Hill Hospital officially opened the Kevin M. Cahill, MD, Exhibition and Study Center, a new study and exhibition space in honor of Dr. Kevin M. Cahill, director of the hospital’s Tropical Disease Center. The new space features Dr. Cahill’s collection of books, many of which are antiquarian volumes, a study center and an exhibition space. The first exhibition focuses on the connection between herbs and medicine. The New York Botanical Garden, Memorial SloanKettering Cancer Center and the Museum of Natural History have contributed material for this exhibit.

The new center is located in the hospital’s health sciences library which is an invaluable resource to our clinicians who use the space to learn about advances in evidencedbased medicine and the history of medicine in order to provide the finest quality healthcare. Lenox Hill Hospital, a member of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, is a 652-bed, fully accredited, acute care hospital located on Manhattan’s Upper East Side with a national reputation for outstanding patient care and innovative medical and surgical treatments.

Emergency Physicians need more resources to manage Ebola The arrival of the Ebola virus in the United States has prompted the nation’s emergency physicians to urge policymakers to provide more resources for personal protective equipment and training for emergency care workers as they manage the front lines of this deadly disease. “The response to Ebola should be regionalized, with emergency departments screening and identifying patients who are infected, and then transporting them to facilities specially equipped to care for them,” said Alex Rosenau, DO, FACEP, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). “Rapid identification of infected patients combined with a regional response will protect both patients and health care workers, in particular emergency physicians and nurses, from spreading the infection.” According to Dr. Rosenau, the top priorities should be increased funding for emergency department disaster preparedness, increased training and supplies of personal protective equipment for all health care workers in emergency departments. Additional resources are needed to train EMS medical staff, including paramedics and emergency medical technicians. “Emergency physicians are asking Congress to restore funding to the federal Hospital Preparedness Program, a program designed to help hospitals plan for emergencies,” said Dr. Rosenau. “Funding to this program has been cut by 50 percent since 2003. In addition, all emergency departments need rapid “yes/no” testing for the Ebola virus in labs dedicated to identifying Ebola patients. We also support the highest level of personal protection guidelines, such as those promoted by the Doctors Without Borders, and we are glad the CDC has strengthened the protocols. This is a Level 4 pathogen, and the experience of that organization with this virus is unparalleled. There also should be consideration for tightening travel restrictions.” In addition, ACEP is advocating for enactment of trauma systems and emergency regionalization legislation, as well as funding of a national grid of bio-containment hospital annexes. Good Samaritan liability protection for first responders in a national emergency, such as in the Ebola crisis, is also a top priority for the nation’s emergency physicians.

“In this rapidly changing environment, we are in daily contact with our members and have convened a panel of emergency medicine infectious disease experts to provide advice on a continuous basis about best practices for managing patients with suspected and confirmed Ebola,” said Dr. Michael Gerardi, president-elect of ACEP. “Our upcoming annual meeting features three courses about Ebola being taught by leading experts in disaster medicine.” Dr. Rosenau said that emergency physicians are also urging the public to be candid with their doctors. “Tell emergency physicians the truth about where you have been and what your symptoms are,” said Dr. Rosenau. “Patients who conceal their travel histories or exaggerate their symptoms do themselves and the public a huge disservice. We are ready to take care of you, but we can only do that if you are completely honest.”

In addition, Dr. Gerardi said the best thing the public can do is to get their annual flu vaccine. “Many of the symptoms of flu are identical to those of Ebola, such as high fever,” said Dr. Gerardi. “In order to minimize the number of patients in doctors’ offices and emergency departments with these symptoms, we urge everyone to get the flu shot.”

• This disease is only spread through direct

Here are some important points about the Ebola virus:

ACEP is the national medical specialty society representing emergency medicine. ACEP is committed to advancing emergency care through continuing education, research and public education. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, ACEP has 53 chapters representing each state, as well as Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia. A Government Services Chapter represents emergency physicians employed by military branches and other government agencies.

• According to the CDC, symptoms may appear anywhere from 2 to 21 days after exposure.Those symptoms may include fever, severe headache, diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and unexplained bruising or bleeding.

• Ebola is NOT spread through the air or by water, or in general, food.

contact, specifically bodily fluids transmitted through broken skin or mucous membranes.

• Unlike influenza, a person with Ebola has to be symptomatic in order to be contagious.
