Traditional Healthcare training focuses on “how” — cultivating knowledge and skills through memorization and practice. It has largely ignored “WHY!”

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 an 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.

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

Syniad is Welsh for “idea.” Oliver Wendell Holmes said that a mind “once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.” What new ideas can we explore to stretch learners’ minds?

" I can get know-how out of a subject matter expert's head and transform it into a valuable learning experience for others".
