“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.

“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.
