employee recognition

Appreciation is a fundamental human need. Employees respond to appreciation expressed through recognition of their good work because it confirms their work is valued. When employees and their work are valued, their satisfaction and productivity rises, and they are motivated to maintain or improve their good work.

Mark Valenti, Director of Practice Transformation Describes The Why Of Team Based Care In The Allegheny Health Network

team based

Today, many fundamentals of the healthcare landscape are rapidly changing, organizations are finally looking beyond clinical care to dramatically enhance health outcomes. 

Teamwork in healthcare is vitally important to patient treatment, care and safety. The better the members of a healthcare team are able to work together, the better they are able to provide the best quality patient care possible. ... Teamwork in healthcare uses that sort of constant communication.

The Why Of Team Based Care

Why does the integration of team-based care with patient-centered care warrant attention? Two primary areas of concern and inquiry have emerged in response to the transition to team-based primary care: (1) the structures, processes, knowledge, and supports that are needed in the primary care practice to create and sustain effective teams; and (2) the potential effects of this transition on relationships among team members, and between patients and those who provide care.

As primary care practices adopt a team-based model of care, a significant challenge is identifying and providing them with the structures, processes, and other types of support (such as training) they need to facilitate and sustain effective communication among provider team members and develop and maintain good intra-team relationships. Effective communication is essential in ensuring that care is continuous and patient-centered, as well as coordinated and coherent; it is the pathway through which team members become aware of each patient's needs, culture, values, and preferences, and understand one another's role in delivering care to the patient.

The science of medicine has wrought miracles in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease. But the art of medicine remains the medium through which illness and suffering are relieved and becomes paramount when biomedicine runs its course and has little to offer the patient. By practicing the art of the consultation, you just might rediscover and nourish the altruistic motivations that called you to be a healer of which you are, though you may not recognize this truth.

Thomas_Egnew_Episode

Thomas, believes Educators should explicitly address patient suffering and create on going curricula with improved clinical teaching, faculty role modeling, and student evaluation.

Life is about creating your self

LaTasha Brize grew up in Champaign, Illinois, raised by a single mother who struggled to keep food on the table by working at an industrial factory. Her mother always encouraged her and her two younger siblings to get a higher education so they could pursue better opportunities. Motivated by her mother’s hardworking example and sage advice, Brize eventually earned a bachelor’s degree and started her own health care staffing agency. She wrote Armed with Persistence to tell the story of her arduous, yet rewarding journey.

LaTasha recounts her own story of struggling to complete her bachelor’s degree only to find that she can’t find employment in her chosen field—health care—because she doesn’t have enough work history or on-the-job training.

The Why And How the role of the Medical Assistant will expand

Elizabeth Thompson2

Elizabeth Thompson, medical practice administrator, Indiana University Health – Southern Indiana Physicians, believes that professionalism amongst MAs is increasing as a result of expanded roles in her organization. “The expectations are higher, and medical assistants are meeting these. As medicine moves to be more Lean, medical assistants understand that their role is vital because they are not as expensive as LPN/RNs, but very vital to making ambulatory patient care work well.”

Your knowledge and aptitude landed you a good job. But those likely weren’t the only assets that got you hired. Chances are your enthusiasm and attitude played a role, too. In an economy with lots of job seekers, employers are looking for people who can bring first-rate skills to the table, with a personality to match. In health care, this is especially true — a positive attitude in health care really counts. Your attitude, as the care giver, can make a difference in how your patients feel. It’ll help them feel they are being cared for with compassion. A positive attitude can be infectious!

A positive attitude in health care professions can also impact your actual job performance. From dealing with stressors of the job, to crafting creative solutions to problems, to managing your interpersonal relationships with co-workers, having a positive demeanor is advantageous on many levels. We tend to be more productive and inclined to do our best when we have a positive attitude—even towards undesirable assignments. What employer doesn’t appreciate that? Read more

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.

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.

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

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”.

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

If it wasn't for my best friend teaching me the fundamentals about on how to take care of someone I'm not sure where I'd be - Ashley Reed

The Voice of Medical Assisting” Podcast will introduce you to impactful, at times, deviate from the conventional, and present personal experiences, ideas, people that affect and Influence the profession and You.

“If you can change the way people think. The way they see themselves. The way they see the world. You can change the way people live their lives. That’s the only lasting thing you can create.”  ― Chuck Palahniuk, Choke 

What we Believe is listening and empathizing can have a profound effect on biological and functional health outcomes as well as patient satisfaction and experience of care. Further, communication on all levels among healthcare team members influences the quality of working relationships, job satisfaction and has a profound impact on patients.

It is highly appearing that our health is in some ways strongly dependent on other people. Social support and social interaction have a positive influence on human beings’ physical and mental health. It lowers occurrence of stress, depression, anxiety and also highly affects our endocrine-immune system. 

From different perspectives, including psychology, sociology, philosophy, neuroscience, biochemistry and health policy. What has emerged in the course of the years is that not only should health professionals learn technical skills, but they also should develop appropriate social skills to better interact and communicate with their patients.

 I take care of people for a living. Taking proactive steps forward does not mean minimizing the emotions that are derived from those actions. It means walking through them and using the experience to grow.
