As a CEO of a participating organization, I can tell you that EXTRA has been a great investment. It has already made changes in the way my senior leadership team approaches projects and how we work together with patients and families. With EXTRA you have a better quality program, better quality training and I can’t see an equivalent anywhere. It’s not that I haven’t looked, we’re always looking to improve our knowledge.
