Satpreet Singh and Dr. Carissa Smock will be presenting the KUCTEF model at the APHA 2023 annual meeting and Expo in Atlanta, GA. This will be the first time the model is being presented at a major public health conference.


In a significant advancement towards addressing social disparities and ethical dilemmas within healthcare systems, a groundbreaking conceptual framework for inclusive representation has been developed by Satpreet Singh and Dr. Carissa Smock at the National University. The framework, named “Knowledge, Understanding, Clarity, Ethics, Transparency, and Fairness” (KUCETF), aims to guide professionals across public and private sectors in effectively representing patients, departments, and society across various ecological and management levels.

Representation plays a pivotal role in bridging the gap between patients, departments, and legislation. This is particularly important in the healthcare landscape, where unique challenges emerge at each level. Patients’ needs and concerns, coupled with the complexities of regulations and laws, require a strategic and systematic approach. The KUCETF framework seeks to provide a comprehensive solution by focusing on key components necessary for successful representation.

The framework was meticulously developed through a content analysis of existing literature, which encompassed the perspectives of patients, leaders, departments, and individuals within the healthcare ecosystem. Several themes emerged from this analysis, including fair treatment, transparent processes, compliance with rules and regulations, ethical considerations, and the application of emotional intelligence in the representation process.

Satpreet Singh elaborated on the significance of the KUCETF framework, stating, “Our model recognizes the vital role that knowledge, understanding, clarity, ethics, transparency, and fairness play in effective representation. By incorporating these elements into the representation process, professionals can navigate complex situations with an emphasis on empathy, professionalism, and inclusivity.”

The framework doesn’t solely focus on theoretical concepts; it provides actionable steps for professionals to employ at every level of healthcare management and ecology. By integrating KUCETF, individuals can analyze, explain, train, and share best practices, fostering an environment that values fairness and promotes ethical behavior.

The potential implications of the KUCETF framework are far-reaching. Enhanced representation has the potential to not only create a more equitable healthcare system but also address prevalent gaps in service delivery. Furthermore, it’s anticipated that strengthening leadership through improved representation will contribute to resolving social and ethical challenges faced by healthcare organizations. The framework’s multifaceted approach might also positively impact mental health, contributing to a more harmonious and healthier work and life environment.

The development of the KUCETF framework underscores the National University’s commitment to advancing knowledge and innovation in the healthcare sector. As healthcare systems continue to evolve, this framework could serve as a guiding light for professionals striving to achieve the highest standards of representation, thereby fostering positive change on both individual and societal levels.
