Profiles In Leadership: Lessons from the Aftermath of the Boston Marathon Bombings.

559 views 4 days ago
Today marks the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. While this horrific event affected all of us deeply, few had the immediate and hands-on experience of this tragedy as did the health care providers at Boston's numerous trauma centers. One NASS member in particular—Dr. Mitch Harris of Brigham and Women's Hospital—rushed back from a trip to be at the hospital to help assist his colleagues with the management of these innocent victims' injuries.

In this ten minute mini-documentary, Dr. Harris and other members of the Brigham trauma team share their experiences of the immediate aftermath of the bombings. While we felt it was important to commemorate the event and the efforts of all those who did so much to help the victims that day, this video was also commissioned as part of the Leadership Initiative of the NASS Governance Committee as a means of illustrating leadership traits that occur during times of crisis. The lessons learned from the activities, the behavior demonstrated during the crisis and how the members of the Brigham trauma team came together to solve problems on April 15, 2013 can be applied in many ways. This video will help the viewer better understand the mindset of a strong leader, cultivate personal leadership skills, lead effectively during crisis situations, and develop a personal action plan necessary to have a positive impact on any organization.

NASS sincerely thanks the personnel of Brigham and Women's Hospital for speaking to us about their experiences. We hope that, through this video, the lessons they learned can aid others who may be faced with crisis management situations in the future.

The North American Spine Society (NASS) is a multidisciplinary medical society representing over 8,000 members dedicated to fostering the highest quality, ethical, value- and evidence-based spine care for patients through education, research, and advocacy. With members from multiple specialties worldwide, NASS is your link to health care professionals invested in advancing spine care. Learn more about NASS membership at www.spine.org.

NASS Advocacy Play

Recognizing the need to influence the debates that shape health care policy, NASS established the National Association of Spine Specialists— an IRS-designated 501(c) (6) trade organization—as its advocacy arm. The Association was founded in 1999 and continues to be administered by the North American Spine Society. The Association advocates in the legislative and regulatory arenas for public policies that protect members' ability to practice medicine and give patients access to the specialists, technologies and treatments they require for quality spine care. All members of the North American Spine Society are members of the Association (unless they opt out), with a portion of member dues allocated to advocacy efforts. The Association relies on its members to advocate on behalf of the spine care field and patients.

The Association is governed by the NASS Executive Committee, with the NASS Advocacy Committee overseeing NASS' advocacy program.
