The Advisory Board Company’s Bad Advice
The Advisory Board Company is proud of its “40 years of making healthcare better.” Yet the big consulting firm, which shapes how countless medical providers operate, is now actively making healthcare worse. Look no further than its recent “identity and inclusion” propaganda booklet for hospitals and doctor’s offices.
An anonymous doctor sent us a copy of the booklet (published in January), which is officially titled “how to address conflict related to identity and inclusion in a team setting.” It’s advertised as being a “tool for healthcare providers worldwide,” yet by page two, it’s painfully clear that no one in medicine should use this ideologically driven farce.
Here’s what the booklet says under its “how to use this tool” instructions. It’s designed for managers responding to the following situations:
- “A team member uses exclusive language, knowingly or unknowingly. Listen for words or phrases that emphasize differences between privileged social groups and targeted or marginalized social groups.”
- “Someone acts in a harmful way that can make others feel excluded. For example, a team member may speak or act out against a new diversity, equity, and inclusion initiative.”
Did you catch that? This booklet is meant to force doctors and nurses to buy into the divisive woke concepts of “privilege” and “intersectionality,” among others.
What’s more, bosses should use it to stop medical professionals from criticizing diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives – even though such efforts tend toward racial discrimination risk more division and frustration by physicians.
There’s no telling how many medical providers are using this so-called “tool.” The Advisory Board Company should be ashamed of pushing it out, and hospitals and doctor’s offices should keep it out of their practices.
