Boulder Creek, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2011
If your hospital is driven to stay ahead then you may want to follow the data coming out of the HeartMath® Best Practices Conference. Todd C. Linden president and chief executive officer of Grinnell Regional Medical Center, Grinnell, Iowa, will be posting a daily blog with highlights from the 19 panels and presentations during this three-day conference which starts May 17th.
“I’m delighted to share my thoughts on a progressive approach to stress management that many hospitals are now providing to their employees,” Todd said. “The conference presentations include hospitals that have employed HeartMath’s research-based approach, which depicts the stress and performance relationship through science. The program helps to explain the debilitating effects of mental, emotional and physical stress, and provides proven techniques and methodologies for enhancing employee performance while reducing healthcare costs.”
The goals of the HeartMath Best Practices Conference are to create a sharing, learning and networking event to deepen the understanding of lessons learned in implementing HeartMath programs in hospital settings.
Todd’s blog will be available on three websites including his own (http://toddlinden.blogspot.com), the HeartMath website (http://www.heartmath.com) and The Health Care Blog (http://www.thehealthcareblog.com).
