Monday, August 05, 2013 - BHIP's Quality Manager Chosen as Treasurer of American Holistic Nurses Association

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – Barry Gallison, regional manager of Quality Management, Epidemiology, and Patient Safety at Broward Health Imperial Point (BHIP) was recently elected to serve a two-year term as treasurer of the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA), a non-profit professional membership organization.

In this role, Gallison will oversee the finances of the AHNA and all levels of fiscal accountability.

A certified holistic nurse with 18 years of practical experience in both clinical and nursing operations, quality management, and performance improvement, Dr. Gallison has made holistic healthcare a focus of his career.

“Holistic health means understanding your mind as well as your body,” he says. “I’m a lifelong learner, and discovered long ago that education helps me keep consistently moving forward. At day’s end I always ask myself what I’ve learned, and if I’ve learned nothing new that day, I get out of bed.”
Holistic nursing is recognized by the American Nurses Association as an official nursing specialty with both a defined scope and standards of practice.

Over the past 32 years, the AHNA’s primary mission is to advance holistic healthcare by increasing awareness, education and both professional and personal community-building among nurses, other healthcare professionals, and the public.¬¬¬¬ AHNA currently services almost 4,500 members through 130 local chapters/networks both in the U.S. and abroad.
