T1: I think it might be interesting to hear about the lived experiences of those dealing with mental health issues. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:16:31 PST 2011

s_eller

The most compelling part of that chat was the personal stories - #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:17:32 PST 2011

RNchat

@thebusynurse I agree. Would there be specific Dx that we may need to be more cautious about? Say, PTSD? If so, how to handle? #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:17:47 PST 2011

westr

T1 RA, MS, Lupus, etc? #rnchat autoimmune are interesting

s_eller

@westr - I like your suggestions. Was also thinking of: sickle cell, obesity, fibromyalgia, migraines or chronic pain issues #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:20:37 PST 2011

s_eller

Something that tells us how the patient feels navigating through the system - insights and tips for providers. #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:21:15 PST 2011

T1 using this medium to talk to #cancer patients re: their experience might be a great means for psychosocial support #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:25:36 PST 2011

s_eller

@sarahbethrn - I also like that idea -transplant patients would be a great population to learn more about as well #rnchat

@rawarrior - Exactly - anything that gives us better patient perspectives can hopefully improve the experience for pt & provider #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:28:06 PST 2011

Ashleigh_RN

Interesting, was approached by a group of transplant RNs 2day asking re: means 4 pts 2 talk via social media! s_eller @sarahbethrn #rnchat

--> lurking, great T1, I love hearing from any & all kinds of patients. I think each person has a story #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:28:54 PST 2011

Ashleigh_RN

transplant seems to be a big one- is there any forum currently out there to support this group via social media? #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:30:12 PST 2011

DonnaPetko

Good evening @rawarrior Agree, better care can be provided through knowledge, insights, perspectives #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:30:17 PST 2011

renee_berry

I think there are many aspects to a patient experience beyond their condition & would be interested in hearing from fam advocates #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:30:27 PST 2011

RNchat

@s_eller Well @renee_berry is officially no longer "lurking". ;) #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:31:46 PST 2011

westr

Good point! RT @Ashleigh_RN: T1 using this 4 #cancer patients re: their experience might be a great means for psychosocial support #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:32:14 PST 2011

s_eller

@renee_berry - Great suggestion about hearing experiences from family advocates as well - this > importance as pt gets sicker #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:33:04 PST 2011

thebusynurse

@Ashleigh_RN I just googled & found transplantbuddies.org. It looks like a peer support forum. Might be worth checking out. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:34:34 PST 2011

renee_berry

@s_eller yes, I think health advocates can be helpful in most areas of health to have another set of ears #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:34:53 PST 2011

s_eller

@thebusynurse @Ashleigh_RN - nice use of google Andi #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:36:32 PST 2011

T2 Repersonalizing Medicine: We have Patient-ized people. How do we rescue personhood from clinical mechanics/routines? #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:37:22 PST 2011

s_eller

T2 - well part of repersonalizing is in listening to the stories as mentioned in T1 ;) #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:38:30 PST 2011

DonnaPetko

Agree RT @s_eller: T2 - well part of repersonalizing is in listening to the stories as mentioned in T1 ;) #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:39:38 PST 2011

NurseTeeny

T2 I also think we should pay closer attention to the whole person when collaborating with/reporting to each other #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:40:49 PST 2011

renee_berry

@rnchat T2 we could start w/refraining from using language about patients being consumers #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:41:17 PST 2011

NurseTeeny

T2 Take note of psychosocial issues, family dynamics, the stories, etc rather than dismissing these things as irrelevant #RNchat

T2: This is one of the main points of the End of Life scenario I assist with at the University of Windsor with 4th yr Student Nurses #RNChat
Thu Jan 27 18:41:48 PST 2011

renee_berry

T2 Think it really helps when healthcare staff take a sec to introduce themselves to pt/fam & say their role in care #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:42:27 PST 2011

T2 individualized approach, taking time out, sharing, caring for the human spirit, holistic approach, including family #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:43:27 PST 2011

thebusynurse

T2: maybe remind ourselves that what may be routine/common for us to see & do, is not so for the patient experiencing it. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:43:31 PST 2011

#RNchat T2 Have pt direct care goals/needs for the shift. Try work fit into their day.

@rnchat Dont care very much what we are called personally if we are spoken to w/ kindness. And give a chance to respond. #RNchat T-2

renee_berry

@rnchat fascinating perspective, I tend to think of everyone as a patient #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:44:58 PST 2011

danasaur82

@rnchat @renee_berry Great start. They have names! #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:45:09 PST 2011

RNchat

@rawarrior I agree - but those two women asked that specifically. My opinion? Just use names & proceed from there. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:45:29 PST 2011

NurseTeeny

My nursing school preferred the term "clients". Their argument was that "patient" implied passive receipt of services. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:45:29 PST 2011

renee_berry

& also understand that while experiencing serious illness, that I would just want to be a person, not defined by my illness #rnchat

@rnchat @rawarrior yes & look people in the eye rather than staring @ charts, always ask abt understanding, embrace shared decisions #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:49:14 PST 2011

renee_berry

T2 I think terms become less important when people are treated like people #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:50:02 PST 2011

InfusionNurse

LOL RT @chemosabe: T2 dont mean to b flip but some of this sounds like ur restaurants w/ "hi my name is candi and Ill b ur server" #RNchat

renee_berry

@rnchat: @rawarrior agree - compassion & language are really important #rnchat

NurseTeeny

I have to say, community health nursing has a lot to offer in teaching how to provide personcentered care :-) #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:55:27 PST 2011

thebusynurse

T2: cultural or spiritual considerations should be addressed to personalize care, especially when they differ from our own. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:55:34 PST 2011

thebusynurse

T2: not that anyone is defined by their culture or religion, but it can be a big part of their life views & effect health. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:56:50 PST 2011

danasaur82

T2 Ask what brings meaning to their life. Can it be included in care somehow? Music, art, family etc. #RNchat
Thu Jan 27 18:56:52 PST 2011

renee_berry

I think the best way to embrace individualized care is to ask each person, embrace their goals of care, support the whole person #rnchat
Thu Jan 27 18:56:57 PST 2011

JoshGriffin

@thebusynurse I agree. Is very important to learn those differences if you can. Were u in 1 of groups we talked about that last yr? #RNChat
