The article discusses the publication of the first Commitment to My Co-Workers, a statement of commitment to treating co-workers well, by the Creative Health Care Management in the U.S. Initially focused on nursing relationships, Commitment to My Co-Workers was soon discovered by people in other disciplines who loved the concepts. Since most of the users of the commitment statement are in health care, all the multiple versions have been consolidated into three: Health Care, Nursing and Interdisciplinary.
