Caring is complex: And it always has been.

Einstein once said, “Everything must be made as simple as possible, but not one bit simpler.” If the health care system continues to value and push oversimplified solutions to complex problems, we sacrifice context. We lose connection to the very system we seek to influence. We put at risk the very value Collaborative Family Healthcare Association (CFHA) was founded on–relationship. As CFHA celebrated its 20th annual conference as a change organization, we came together in Rochester, NY to reflect on two decades of work, innovation, and, above all, relationships–relationships with each other, with the communities we serve, and the health care systems we seek to improve. As Family, Systems, and Health pushes forward the field by taking on translational research, CFHA will as well. It has been CFHA’s willingness to acknowledge complexity, through its emphasis on systems, that has distinguished this organization. We strive to improve ourselves, by coming together as a membership, learning from one another, pushing each other to emerge as individuals, to improve the care we provide. I look forward over the next 2 years to delve into the fray with you all. To explore together and discover your approach to the complex problems we face. What we do is not rocket science; it’s far more complex! (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2019 APA, all rights reserved)
