Pete Fifeld: Connection

Posted By Pete Fifield, Wednesday, February 8, 2012

The Collaborative Family Healthcare Association (CFHA) has connected me with other professionals, colleagues and now friends who have a common interest in integrated care. As a member of the CFHA, I am in contact with other providers working in the burgeoning field of integrated behavioral health; a very rich, diverse collection of professionals all passionate about improving health service delivery.

Through my membership I continue to foster relationships with other's out there, who are not only thinking, researching and writing about, but are also acting to perpetuate the practice of collaborative healthcare. CFHA is made up of Doctors of medicine, philosophy and education, nurses, dentists, nutritionists and the like all transcending the limitations of their individual guilds and discipline boundaries joining together to practice the core tenets of collaboration; working together for a common cause.

From the beginning of my career in Behavioral Health Science I have believed that patients don’t make excuses, they make choices and the decisions patients make regarding their personal health maintenance are often difficult due to their very complex lives. In the healthcare setting, this is where integration and collaboration prove their worth and I believe the CFHA lays at the heart of it all.
