In my clinical training I was often frustrated by the requirement to comment on both “mood” and “affect” in my patient evaluations. It’s not that I didn’t get the distinction. “Mood,” it was explained, was like weather, fickle and changeable but current; “affect” was climate, the more-or-less characterological outlook of a patient. (Since I worked predominantly on inpatient wards, the weather was usually stormy). From time to time, it’s always useful for an organization to review is vision and mission statements. These are, after all, de rigeur in the modern organizational environment. In the current political weather pattern, which promises to bring climactic change to American healthcare, I think that it is appropriate for us to re-examine our mission and vision to see if they will assist in charting the direction ahead.
