Don’t Be Like Steve!

This humorous presentation put the profession on trial, indicting old, outdated policies, methodologies and thinking. Steve is a manager entrenched in the old ways. Some of his staff want more for themselves and their patients. Some just like having a beer with Steve on the weekends. Don't be like Steve!
