Dr. Lund is a member of the Behavior at Work Collaborative Board and currently serves as organizational vice president. He has been involved in the Collaborative from its earliest formation in 2009 and has found this work of building respectful work cultures to be his passion since retiring from his radiology practice in 2006. Rob established HEI (Healthy Environment Initiative) as a program of culture change for his own practice and for the radiology departments in which his group provided services. The program has been very successful and continues to expand beyond radiology into other departments in the Fairview Hospitals.
Cynthia Dols Finn, MN, RN, CNE, PHN
Cindy has been engaged in promoting a healthy academic environment since 2004. She has been a member of the Behavior at Work Collaborative since its inception and is currently a board member. She is faculty at St. Catherine University in the Department of Nursing. Cindy has presented locally, regionally and nationally on promoting healthy academic work environments.
Cindy continues to be interested in the work of the Collaborative because of her belief that healthcare, nursing, and nursing education have opportunities for improvement when it comes to promoting a healthy workplace. A plethora of research exists identifying that many nurses have experienced harmful and negative workplace and academic cultures. Patient outcomes, high turnover rates of nurses, and increased costs have been clearly linked to a negative workplace culture. Therefore it is necessary to improve the healthcare environment to positively impact patient outcomes, improve retention of nurses, and reduce costs. Nursing is instrumental in contributing to the work place culture. Academia serves as one venue to promote healthy behaviors in nursing and to provide the tools to address harmful or negative workplace behaviors. Cindy is committed to giving nursing students the tools necessary to begin to identify and address harmful behaviors and promote healthy professional behaviors in an ever-changing healthcare environment.
