“The Why” Beyond The Technical Skills, Understanding The other Side Of Healthcare

D917_35_013_0004_600

Some Time’s A Patient Needs Someone To Be There And Listen…Not To Fix Anything Or Do Anything In Particular, But Just To Let Them Feel They Are Supported And Cared About

jessica

As patients, I think we all, when given the opportunity, want to get better. You lose your purpose in life when you lose your ability to function. You lose your sense of self. We have to be given permission and encouraged to change the dynamic and play an active role in our healthcare decisions by those that are involved in our care.

 Healthcare Consultant, Patient Advisor and Speaker

 I became ill in my senior year of college. Although I did manage to graduate with my class, my life looked completely different than my friends’ lives as they started their adult lives. Graduating from college is an exciting time for most, where you get to go off and chase your dreams.

When a person graduates from college, It’s like the beginning of a new era; you have your whole life ahead of you, it is a chance to chase your dreams and you embark on a journey to build the life that you have been working towards for years. It’s a time when maybe you go out and decide to start the career you’ve always wanted, or get married and start a family, it’s a happy time filled with exciting changes.

It was the latter half of my senior year when I began to get sick. I had been a professional horseback rider up to that point and would be graduating with a business degree.

And while everyone else was applying for jobs and making plans for their futures, I found myself scheduling doctor’s appointments, getting medical testing, and seeing specialists.

As I grow and learn to deal with what my life has given me, I think the thing that I get the most emotional about still is the social losses that a young person with a major medical condition suffers.

It becomes an even deeper issue when you have no family support –

It is highly appearing From different perspectives, including psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience, biochemistry  that our health and healing is in some ways strongly dependent on other people.

Natasha (Tasha) Turner, Allied Health Medical Assisting Program Director Is Implementing New Educational Standards In Her Medical Assisting Program

time for change

“If you can change the way Students think. The way they see what they do. The way they see their Profession. You can change Lives

To paraphrase Steve Jobs “A lot of people in Healthcare haven’t had very diverse experiences. So they don’t have enough dots to connect, and they end up with very linear solutions without a broad perspective on the problem. The broader one’s understanding of the human experience in healthcare, the more solutions we will have.”

I was asked a question: If you could change one thing about healthcare, what would it be?

I would change how patients are treated. I feel that health care has become a one size fits all model, a factory. I would change the perception of how we heal patients. That’s just one of many things I would change.

Many may ask why I am an advocate of Allied Health Professions.
The answer is easy everyone has to start somewhere. Not everyone can afford to go to Medical School, not everyone will get into a nursing program, you have to start somewhere, anywhere, just don’t give up and don’t sit still.

E-Learning: The Future Healthcare professionals Education Experience

Imagineering_template
elearning

Will this brave new world of e-learning make face to face education a thing of the past? This is unlikely to happen. In the future we will use different formats that help us achieve different outcomes: Evidence based learning resources to help doctors develop excellent applied knowledge; interactive case histories to help them develop problem solving skills; and multimedia or simulation based resources to engender healthy attitudes and professional behaviours. Face to face education will continue – in the form of interactive lectures and networking events – and so a blend of learning resources will help us develop healthcare professionals with the right balance of knowledge, skills, and behaviours. There will undoubtedly be more high users of e-learning but there will also be those who prefer face to face education and who will make strategic learning choices as to the formats that they prefer in different contexts and at different times.

Attempting to predict the future is never a completely straightforward exercise – but in the case of e-learning the trends over the past ten years will very likely continue for some time to come. It will be up to us as healthcare professionals to ensure that we use e-learning wisely and harness its many advantages to help use deliver better care for patients and populations.  Read more

We all have purposes. Mine is using my experiences to encourage other women to achieve excellence, put forth all they have to succeed and to remember, life is too short to sweat the small stuff.

Melanie Staub Story “Out of the ashes”

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein

ashes

Eighteen years following Brian’s death were filled with very tragic times, i.e., an abusive marriage, raising 7 kids (3 his, 2 mine, 2 our’s), six years as a single mom, working and raising my two youngest sons, completing my college Design Degree, my best friend Jeannie being murdered by her husband, my mother passing. Read more

To quote Bill Crowder in his booklet, “Out of the ashes”,

“How do we respond to our inevitable suffering and loss? With fatalism? Realism? Doubt? Despair? A combination?

Our hearts and minds are often torn between these options. Sometimes we despair in fatalism, sometimes we affirm our faith in the midst of screaming doubts. Holding on to our confidence in the reality and power of God, especially when circumstances defy our understanding, can lift our experience of hardship to something more. Something higher, something of worth because He is there”.

The Meaning Of Healing: Thomas Egnew, Behavioral Scientist, Tacoma Family Medicine, Educating Physicians To Become Healers In Clinical Medicine

Cure, not care, became the primary purpose of medicine, and the physician’s role became “curer of disease” rather than “healer of the sick.

Why Every Profession In Healthcare that cares for patients should have an in-depth understanding of the meaning of Healing.

The Meaning Of Healing?

Medicine is traditionally considered a healing profession, but it has neither an operational definition of healing nor an explanation of its mechanisms beyond the physiological processes related to curing.

Medicine is traditionally considered a healing profession, and modern medicine claims legitimacy to heal through its scientific approach to medicine.1 The marriage of science and medicine has empowered physicians to intervene actively in the course of disease, to effect cures, to prevent illness, and to eradicate disease.2 In the wake of such success, physicians, trained as biomedical scientists, have focused on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.3 In the process, cure, not care, became the primary purpose of medicine, and the physician’s role became “curer of disease” rather than “healer of the sick.”4,5 Healing in a holistic sense has faded from medical attention and is rarely discussed in the medical literature. – Thomas Egnew Read more

Bottom Line: Why is One of the Most In-Demand Jobs In Healthcare So Low Paid?

Bob Goddard(AKA Yang) Editor of the  CNA Edge 

Recently Published: 60 Caregiver Issues: PHI and the Caregiver Shortage

  

I worked in long-term care for 35 years, 25 of those as a caregiver. While I’ve witnessed a great deal of progress in that time, I believe there is still a long way to go. From my perspective, the biggest problems in long-term care are created by the unreasonably heavy workloads and grossly inadequate pay of direct care workers.

Becoming The Person You Want To Be!: Secret Thought Life!

“The soul becomes dyed with the colour of its thoughts.”
― Marcus Aurelius

Anxiety, uncertainty, feelings of inadequacy…that three headed beast from within pops up from time to time in an attempt to block me from progress when life gets difficult. The first step to battling that monster is to become aware of it; to recognize that those feelings are not based in truth. – Corey Rotella

CNA’s In Healthcare,Their Perspective, What They Experience,What They Feel, Their Image, What’s Needed.

The Caregivers Seldom Spoken Of In Healthcare

A voice from the trenches of long term care

According to the National Network of Career Nursing Assistants, more than 4.5 million caregivers provide direct, hands-on care to ill and elderly patients in nursing homes or other facilities each day.

CNA_Edge

Alice, CNA Edge Contributor

I am a CNA. Certified Nursing Assistant. I’ve always felt that the title is misleading, like a “diet” nurse. Maybe that’s because I have always worked in long-term care in an assisted living facility. We don’t even have a nurse on staff. I’ve always preferred to think of myself as a caregiver. It’s amore fitting title. While there are elements of my job duties that are definitely nursing related, there are also elements of psychology, grief counseling, body mechanics, physical therapist, and advocacy. I am an advocate at heart. We have a difficult job in an impossible system, but the value of this career and the purpose it has brought to my life cannot be overstated.

Yang, CNA Edge Editor

I worked in long-term care for 35 years, 25 of those as a caregiver. While I’ve witnessed a great deal of progress in that time, I believe there is still a long way to go. From my perspective, the biggest problems in long-term care are created by the unreasonably heavy workloads and grossly inadequate pay of direct care workers. Meanwhile, the system routinely squanders precious resources in an effort to paper over the profound gap that exists between the realities faced by front line workers and the lofty expectations of those who set and enforce standards.

May, CNA Edge Contributor

I am a CNA in a long-term care facility. I am also someone who believes in the power of communication. Communication between the floor and the office; between the long-term care industry and the world in general. All too often CNAs are seen as people who can’t do any better than a dirty job and I would like to change that. In my years as a CNA in a nursing home, I have met so many intelligent and compassionate aides who do not receive the respect they deserve for the hard job that they do so well. We are the ones who take care of the residents. I don’t think it is said often enough: our voices are important. Our stories matter too.

Effective Communication

The president of a university should be seen as a thought leader on campus, which means that his or her ideas and insights must be effectively communicated to faculty, students,

A Blessed Christmas Tragedy. A Christmas Story. Dedicated To Phoebe (aka ‘PuppyDoc’)

Healing The Hidden Pain of despair and hopelessness!

A PHYSICIAN’S PLEA.

A junior doctor. A simple question.

“How am I supposed to go on caring?”

At the time, suggestions abound.
Work-life balance. Self-care. Hobbies.
Remembering our initial calling.
Remembering we still make a difference.
Remembering our love for medicine
and the privilege we have as caregivers.

Then the realization-
I don’t know the answer.

I only know that I have witnessed around me-
at every stage of training and practice-
evidence of emotional exhaustion.
Dissatisfaction.
Disillusionment.

Burnout.

So this is my plea.

A plea-
to students,
to colleagues,
to practitioners,
but–even more–
to myself.
A plea as we
embark further into
the world of medicine.

A plea-
never to lose the satisfaction
we experience in caring for others–
the thrill savored
when we supported our first patient,
the warmth felt when families embrace us,
entrusting us with their care,
their health,
their lives.

A plea–
to preserve our love,
our burden,
our heart–
for mankind.

That despite challenges faced,
we refuse to lose what we have gained.
That despite the obstacles
in an ever-changing environment–
despite the self-doubt, criticism, personal struggles–
despite the constant immersion into death and suffering
and the consequent self-preservatory layers
of emotional shield–

Despite everything.

That we would continue
to feel,
to love,
to enjoy–
Medicine.
Our patients.
Our calling.
Life.

Because this is my hope for the future.

That we would never lose the simple joy of helping others.

HER STORY

steth-final

Smiles. Laughter. Tears. Groans. Hugs. Hope.

Poetry & Medicine

•      •      •

“So how does it really feel to be handed someone’s life…to fight for that life…only to lose the very thing you were aiming to save…?”

Over the last couple of years, I have often encountered these sorts of questions… questions regarding my days and nights living and working as a physician. I had initially created this blog as a way to share my experiences through a medium that I felt could only begin to do this complex profession and all of its players some degree of justice. It was my way of capturing, assimilating, and articulating some of my feelings… the moments of joy, contentment, frustration,guilt, loss, and acceptance…that I have experienced since my introduction into the whirlwind realm that is the art of medicine and patient care.

However, over time, Musings has evolved to become less a simple portrait of the days spent as a caregiver, and more simply a reflection of all that lies beyond the white coat—the tears and chuckles, fears and hopes of life—in other words…a beating, human heart.

With love,
Phoebe (aka ‘PuppyDoc’)

How do you Measure Excellence In the Medical Assisting Profession?

spirit_of_excellence2

“Excellence is the Result of Caring more than others think is Wise, Risking more than others think is Safe, Dreaming more than others think is Practical, and Expecting more than others think is Possible.”
Ronnie Oldham

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as a Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, ‘Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

This Medical Assistant Walks The Talk In Humble Compassion With Gratitude For Being Able To Serve Others

What Others Say about her

Sachin Gupta, Physician at Kaiser Permanente

I knew Patricia from her work in the Fremont Pulmonary Hypertension clinic. You won’t find a more organized, easy to talk to, team oriented person than her. The clinic thrived during her time working there!

Beth Newman, Rheumatology Specialist at Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals, Autoimmune & Rare Disease

Patricia went above and beyond her job responsibilities in order to understand a rare disease. She attended programs & studied the different types of medication available to the patients for this rare disease all on her own personal time. She has a passion for learning and providing the best possible care for patients. Thanks, Beth

George Lai, Physician

I knew Patricia since she was one of my medical assistants when I worked in Fremont Kaiser. Not only we Patricia friendly to myself and our patients, she went beyond her duties in anticipating what I needed for the patients. She is a great asset for any organization.

Peter Hendler, Head of Clinical Engagement for the Americas. IHTSDO SNOMED

Patricia impresses me constantly with her intelligence, creativity and deep general knowledge. If first I was impressed with how little I had to explain to Patricia for her to know exactly what to do. Later I found, on a wide variety of subjects both medical and general, that she is an encyclopedia of accurate information. She is wonderful to work with, energetic, cheerful…more

Karen Pimentel, Physician at The Permanente Medical Group

Patricia is a very efficient and detail oriented medical assistant. She is an asset in any clinical setting.

Film Maker Perspective Of What Is Desperately Needed in Healthcare

Inside My Being

inside_my_being

Patient care is more than just healing — it’s building a connection that encompasses mind, body and soul. Empathy in healthcare is the capability to share another person’s emotions and feelings. The empathy we convey to our patients, families and to each other creates the culture of caring we continually work toward. See more at:

Accepting that healing occurs within the individual acknowledges that medical care alone cannot facilitate the patient’s capacity for restoration. So, to achieve the best outcomes, it is necessary to care for the whole person. That means engaging the humanity of the patient as expressed physically, emotionally, and spiritually. In addition, the physical environment in which Whole Person Care is delivered is critical to achieving its goals. By Susan E. Mazer, Ph.D. – See more at:

As a Caregiver ask yourself!

If you could stand in someone else’s shoes . . . hear what they hear. See what they see. Feel what they feel. Would you treat them differently?

What role can the Medical Assistant play in the future of healthcare?

Medical Assistants Can Be On Forefront Of Making Empathic Care A Norm In Healthcare

Creating A New Image Of The Medical Assistant In Healthcare

listening

Empathy falls under Social Awareness. This skill reflects a person’s ability to connect with others and to relate to them which is an essential skill in building and managing healthy relationships. Without the ability to understand what another is going through, our relationships remain superficial and without the depth and richness that occurs when we share an emotional connection. Opportunity is lost.

Without empathy, people tend to go about life without considering how other people feel or what they may be thinking. Each of us has differing perspectives. We all experience moods, pain and hurt, joy and sadness. And we are so limited when we only see our own perspective. Without taking a moment to assess another, it is easy to make assumptions and jump to conclusions. This often leads to misunderstandings, bad feelings, conflict, poor morale.

Creating A Healthcare Culture Enabling humans to show humanity

It is the responsibility of healthcare leaders and caregivers to create a culture where we retain our humanity.

Let’s be honest, Caregivers in healthcare put their heart and soul into their work, at times  long hours combined with tremendous physical and emotional demands and high-stakes work can make it a challenge to continue to tap a well of inspiration.

What many healthcare organizations have come to realize is that superior patient satisfaction requires an ongoing proactive approach from the full organization.

Research evidence indicates that there are strong positive relationships between a healthcare team member’s communication skills and a patient’s capacity to follow through with medical recommendations, self-manage a chronic medical condition, and adopt preventive health behaviors. Studies show that the ability to explain, listen and empathize can have a profound effect on biological and functional health outcomes as well as patient satisfaction and experience of care. Further, communication among healthcare team members influences the quality of working relationships, job satisfaction and has a profound impact on patient.

The Patient Experience

A New Opportunity For Medical Assistant’s

Could Medical Assistant's Be The Solution

Patient satisfaction is an important and commonly used indicator for measuring the quality in health care. Patient satisfaction affects clinical outcomes, patient retention, and medical malpractice claims. It affects the timely, efficient, and patient-centered delivery of quality health care. Patient satisfaction is thus a proxy but a very effective indicator to measure the success of doctors and hospitals. This Podcast discusses as to how to ensure out-patient satisfaction and a possible new role for Medical Assistant’s

The True Spirit Of Medical Assisting

Taking Medical Assisting One Step Beyond

Episode 50 The Spirit Of Medical Assisting
Proud to be a  Medical Assistiant Scribe 2

“I have realized; it is during the times I am far outside my element that I experience myself the most. That I see and feel who I really am, the most! I think that’s what a comet is like, you see, a comet is born in the outer realms of the universe! But it’s only when it ventures too close to our sun or to other stars that it releases the blazing “tail” behind it and shoots brazen through the heavens! And meteors become sucked into our atmosphere before they burst like firecrackers and realize that they’re shooting stars! That’s why I enjoy taking myself out of my own element, my own comfort zone, and hurling myself out into the unknown. Because it’s during those scary moments, those unsure steps taken, that I am able to see that I’m like a comet hitting a new atmosphere: suddenly I illuminate magnificently and fire dusts begin to fall off of me! I discover a smile I didn’t know I had, I uncover a feeling that I didn’t know existed in me… I see myself. I’m a shooting star. A meteor shower. But I’m not going to die out. I guess I’m more like a comet then. I’m just going to keep on coming back.”

Resistance: The Self-Sabotaging Voice Within

Resistance The Self-Sabotaging Voice In your Mind

Becoming the Person You Want to Be

 “Often, it’s not about becoming a new person, but becoming the person you were meant to be, and already are, but don’t know how to be.” ― Heath L. Buckmaster

That voice very convincingly says things like: “Why don’t you just forget your workout today and sleep in, you deserve it”; “Forget your plans to take that first step on the new project today – you can start it tomorrow”

I’m not talking about “hearing voices” as a person with schizophrenia might – some people may experience this as their own voice in their mind, or as a thought, a doubt, or a strong impulse to not do what they had planned to do or would like to do. Do you know what I’m talking about?

We all have it, and depending on who you are and what your weak spots are it will speak to you in different ways.

If you have low self-esteem, it might tell you that you’re ugly when you look in the mirror.

WORKPLACE CONFLICT

Adversely Affects Your Professional and Personal Life

Conflict within an organization can cause members to become frustrated if they feel as if there’s no solution in sight, or if they feel that their opinions go unrecognized by other group members. As a result, members become stressed, which adversely affects their professional and personal lives. Organization members may have problems sleeping, loss of appetite or overeating, headaches and become unapproachable. In some instances, organization members may avoid meetings to prevent themselves from experiencing stress and stress-related symptom.

This Medical Assistant Opened 5 Rural Health Clinics: The Patricia Malphurs Story

Patricia Malphurs Story: The Fruit of Love “SERVICE”

ruralhealthclinic-jeua

In the mid-1960’s, the physician shortage in rural areas had reached a crisis. The supply of physicians had become insufficient to meet the demands of many communities, particularly in small, isolated rural areas. A new breed of caring, purpose driven people were needed to serve the needy of the unwanted rural communities. This is the story of one such person, Patricia Malphurs. Patricia worked in the rural health medical field with her former Physician Assistant husband for 22 years. Together they opened five Rural Health Medical Clinics.

Psychological Homeostasis and You!

Episode 38 Debbie Ruston

Psychological Homeostasis is a neural and physical process that maintain the equilibrium of mental states or equanimity.

It is incredible what a different effect is produced upon the mind by thinking for oneself, as compared with reading. It carries on and intensifies that original difference in the nature of two minds which leads the one to think and the other to read. What I mean is that reading forces alien thoughts upon the mind—thoughts which are as foreign to the drift and temper in which it may be for the moment, as the seal is to the wax on which it stamps its imprint. The mind is thus entirely under compulsion from without; it is driven to think this or that, though for the moment it may not have the slightest impulse or inclination to do so. Arthur Schopenhauer, On Thinking for Oneself[189]

Jessica Deary, MBA, President (AdvocarePA) , Healthcare Speaker & Trainer and Patient Advocate:

What if doctors prescribed community support resources with lifestyle changes instead of just medicine? What if your referral was to an outside group or program rather than to a specialist?

There are many entities outside of the health system that can act as ambassadors for health promotion and maintenance, and when utilized appropriately, can prove beneficial for patient, provider and health system alike. Linking clinical, community and public health system can create a win-win scenario for all involved, yet, despite sharing common goals, most entities that promote/maintain health systems continue to work independently of each other. This poses the question of why don’t more healthsystems inform their patients and take advantage of the many resources outside of their own system to provide support to their patients.

My passion lies in improving the patient experience by sharing my first hand knowledge and truly unique perspective of healthcare, derived from experience as a business strategist, legislative professional, healthcare provider, patient advocate and, most importantly, a long term patient, with healthcare providers, aretakers and other patients.
