The Zen of Relationship-Centered Measurement and Engagement

3/15/2020
A conversation with Ellen Schultz. How can we best commit to improving what’s vital in our local health care system? Commitment is will, resources, and time. Measuring can’t take more effort than improving. Engage people at the center: patients, clinicians, and the people that support them. Focus on relationships. Measure consistency and sustainability. As in any health effort – exercise weak muscles. Blog subscribers: Listen to the podcast here. Scroll down through show notes to read the...

Mind Body Spirit. Empathy and Social Justice.

3/1/2020
In Ecuador, I found there were the traditional indigenous views of health melding with Western medicine. So, your physical and melding with Christianity as well. Your physical, spiritual, and mental health felt much more interwoven. You might see a shaman and pick up some medications from your doctor on your way to the church to say a prayer.

Bioethics: Autonomy. For Me, On Behalf of Me.

2/9/2020
Bioethics, the term first coined by someone (who is a controversy) in 1971, includes four principles – respect for autonomy, nonmaleficence (do no harm), beneficence (for me, on behalf of me), and justice. Ken Goodman spoke about two of the four principles autonomy and beneficence. As with much when you start peeling back the layers, bioethics are not simple, not black and white, rather shades of grey.

Accessible Yoga: Honor Your Body

1/26/2020
Melissa Reynolds talks Yoga. With chronic pain and fatigue, there's such a variation. Some people are always at high levels of pain. Some people vary. There are various stages within fibromyalgia and chronic pain and chronic fatigue. Plus, you have other things going on. Some people also have arthritis where their chronic pain comes from. Or there are other complexities. You can't say, “this is how you do yoga for chronic pain.” Key is letting people see that they have choices, so there's...

Trust: Willing to be Vulnerable. Worth the Investment.

1/19/2020
Best health builds on trust – trust in people, institutions, information, and solutions. I trust my primary care doc. I trust my chiropractor. I trust my instincts. I trust my gut. I do. I trust my wife. She trusts me. Trust doesn’t mean blind following. Rather trust leads to more control or feeling more in control. I need trust when I’m in a crisis and can’t think clearly. I listen to my immediate family and my two lead docs (in that order). I’m likely to do what they recommend. Trust is...

Employed Family Caregivers – The Difference Collaborative

1/12/2020
My compatriot, Geri Lynn Baumblatt, consults and advocates on the overlapping worlds of employees, family caregivers, employers, and support, especially in nursing. In short, bread winners also caring for family and friends with acute and chronic illnesses and disabilities. I picture these overlapping worlds as balloons mashing up against each other trying not to burst. If you’re a nurse, an employer, a boss, or a caregiving staff member, this chat about the Difference Collaborative is for...

Chiropractic – Operating at Peak Performance

1/5/2020
I depend on my team – laypeople and professionals - to help me understand my body, abilities, circumstances, moods, and reactions. Profound understanding promotes self-appreciation – loving myself as I am. On my professional team, my primary care doc, chiropractor, massage therapist, neurologist, optometrist, physical therapist, and acupuncturist are the strongest and most important professionals for me. I’ve learned which of their skills help me, how they communicate with me, and what work...

Engaging with Sax – Good as I Am – Merry Holidays

12/22/2019
Sometimes I wish I had fallen in love with the flute. It would be easier than carrying the 40-pound sax up and downstairs. But it motivates me to keep doing my squats and increasing upper body strength as my lower body function diminishes. So, engaging with sax is perfect for me. Using different parts of my brain, learning every day, keeping me humble, and spiritually strong. Are you still playing the baritone sax? is a spot-on personal health outcome for me. So merry holidays everyone. I...

Impact Learning: Own our decisions. Do the work every day.

12/8/2019
As a person who owns my journey, my learning journey, in this case, I explore the options, the resources that are available to me. Then I direct myself to make the right choices and learn what I need to learn. At the same time, it's learning by doing. That's a very important part because we can learn a lot of things in theory. But can I communicate that knowledge? Does it bring us benefit? It doesn't help us with our life unless we put this knowledge to work. So, I believe in learning by...

Gratitude, Podcasting, Best Health

12/1/2019
I'm not a religious person, but I am spiritual. I’m at one in my relationship with a higher power, God, if you will, when I recognize and feel gratitude.

Teachable Spirit. Patient Family Advisors.

11/24/2019
Careful what you wish for. Health equity and participatory medicine depend on the widespread meaningful use of patient family advisors. The trickle of such advisors should be a stream. Unfortunately, even if the supply could meet demand, health care administrators, researchers, entrepreneurs lack skill in making good use of patient family advisors. Libby Hoy leads Patient Family-Centered Care Partners, a small organization with a large vision for improving the quality, safety, and experience...
