Putting the CARE in Healthcare
Who teaches us how to care? As health professionals we learn the “health” side of healthcare from textbooks, and lectures, and reviewed practice. BUT has anyone ever taught you the Care side? Or has it just been assumed that you have it, or worse, not considered at all? I’m joined by Ben Lynch of Clinic... The post Putting the CARE in Healthcare appeared first on The Art of Healthcare.

How to challenge a Nocebo belief without destroying your therapeutic relationship
Nocebo beliefs are those beliefs that a person holds around a particular treatment, diagnosis, or health challenge that lead them towards a negative outcome. There are a variety of reasons these beliefs exist. AND part of our role as health providers is to challenge these without destroying the therapeutic relationship we have with this person,...

High Performance Healthcare
Can healthcare be high performance?….. Yes Should Healthcare be high performance?…… Most of the time What do you think about when you think about high performance healthcare? If you’re anything like the me who started out their healthcare career the first thing that pops to mind is probably a really high level of clinical skills....

When we are designing health programs, how often do we incorporate the lived experience of people who we are providing a service to? Less often than we should I’d wager. Both at the individual interaction level and across the wider health system. We’re the experts right? What we think is best, is probably best isn’t...

Clinical bravery and person centered care
The future of healthcare is person-centered care! What does that mean? And how do we do it? It involves having some clinical bravery. Bravery to understand the philosophy of how we practice and stay true to it. Bravery relinquish clinical control to others Bravery to continually reflect on how we could do better Bravery to consider that we aren't the expert in this situation Claire Killingback (amazing physio name) joins us to discuss how she is shaping the physios of the future to practice this way, and how we can do it too. In this chat we talk through; Setting up university physiotherapy program for physios of the future The philosophy of person centered care How person centered care is different from patient centered care Clinical bravery The role of systems and environments in shaping care The continuum of person centered practice Learning when to stop people Assessing as a narrative as opposed to a list The philisophical underpinnings of how you want to practice Using your philosophy to shape your career path Reconceptualising physiotherapy identities Letting go of control Understanding who the expert is Physiosplaining Reflecting on our practice The post Clinical bravery and person centered care appeared first on The Art of Healthcare.

Improving your communication with journalist turned physical therapist Jasmine Marcus
Most of us been thinking and communicating health information for our entire adult lives. Some of us (including me) since before our brain was fully developed. We'd like to think that we're doing a good job of conveying information to everyone else who hasn't had the depth of learning we have. I'm sure a lot of the time we do a really good job, BUT can we actually be sure? Jasmine Marcus is a journalist turned physical therapist who still remembers living life as an adult without knowing this stuff. She couples this with her communication expertise as a journalist and joins me on the podcast this week. We talk through Understanding what it's like to be an adult not working in the health industry The challenges of not having something tangible to show for your work The value of recording and acknowledging your wins That it's normal to question our abilities Glorifying our ego by oversharing what we notice is "abnormal" Why we should normalize "abnormal" findings How to shift the direction of dominant narratives Why you should question what you take for granted Trying to make yourself more skeptical How to challenge nocebo effects The power of celery water Why you should consume professional education on social media The post Improving your communication with journalist turned physical therapist Jasmine Marcus appeared first on The Art of Healthcare.

The importance of creativity and preparation
Creativity and preparation may seem to be strange bedfellows. After all one seems fluid while the other is rigid.

Today we talk through How everyone has a creative streak How to cultivate your creativity The role creativity plays in communication Why you should seek out new experiences outside your profession Brain books Creating a disaster folder Bringing a buffer zone into your day Using the concept your future self effectively Preparing to be your best, in the worst situation The real reason Tyson has that ear ring Bobcats fighting rattlesnakes Everyone has a favourite super hero The post The importance of creativity and preparation appeared first on The Art of Healthcare.

Why you fail your patient if you only think of them as their health problem
One reason for so many of our Healthcare advancements is our reductionist thinking about health. Tackling one small aspect at a time and solving it. It’s why we’ve got better at keeping people alive. One reason that healthcare doesn't adequately address many of the health challenges facing our societies at the moment is reductionist thinking (to not be reductionist here, there are also a lot of others). Human beings are complex systems, living within complex systems and environments. Our symptoms are (sometimes) caused by a biological response, but the drivers for that biological response are often complex and varied. Reductionist thinking hits the biological response (which is helpful) but not the drivers of the response (which is not). Alex Murray joins me for a conversation on Complex systems theory, non specific effects, practical stuff we can do with our patients in the face of these, and the bastardisation of the concept of the Art of Healthcare.

Empowering patient partnerships
The paradigm of (most) Healthcare professionals as the "fixer" is outdated. (Don't get me wrong I very much appreciate the surgeons who have put me back together when I've busted myself). If we want to support healthier communities, then us as the health professional need to empower our patients to take control of their health, make the healthy choices, and live their healthy lives. Jennifer George joins me to talk about how we can do that by entering into empowering patient partnerships. We talk through; Therapeutic relationships How to create partnership Engaging patients that are seeking for us to "fix" them What happens when patients aren't empowered Flexing our empathy muscles Why compassion, empathy, and communication are harder than a clinical skill, plus what to do about it Why we need to believe in our patients The post Empowering patient partnerships appeared first on The Art of Healthcare.

Personalizing Healthcare to every patient is hard work right? Yeah it is AND It's only harder in when you get started, once you get used to it, it's no harder than not personalizing the care you give. Plus you get better outcomes for your patients, and enjoy yourself more. Dr Nick Kimber joins me for a conversation about personalizing Healthcare. For our patients and clients. We talk; Barriers to progress when care is not personalized Benefits of a personalized approach Some tips to begin to personalize your approach Becoming a key person in someone's life Why science is never 100% conclusive The problem with scientific theory when we don't extrapolate it out into practice The post Personalising healthcare appeared first on The Art of Healthcare.

Delivering Authentic Healthcare
I'd imagine most healthcare professionals view themselves as a giving person. After all, we're looking after patients day in day out. Most of us didn't get into it for the cash - although some may have. We can just keep giving. Giving to our patients, giving to our colleagues, giving to systems that haven't been fully set up to support us. Giving can feel good, we feel like we're doing something worthwhile. BUT if we just keep giving without question where does that lead us? We follow a career progression not of our own choosing. We give to a system that isn't designed to value us. When one patient goes another comes in to take their place and we start over. We stop giving to ourselves. Nurse Jacqui O'Connor joins me on the podcast to talk about how we can do healthcare more authentically. We talk through - Burnout - Setting our values - Learning the tools of boundaries - Rubbing off on others - Moral injury in healthcare - Enabling the system not to change - Shame and gu…

Building vulnerability into your practice
Connecting with our patients is often the hardest part of our job as health providers. Often the pathology is straightforward but we just can't seem to be able to communicate with the person in a way that elicits a positive change. My mate Heather Watson reckons that to improve that connection we need to be more vulnerable. She joins us today to talk about how to build vulnerability into our practice, and our lives. We talk through What vulnerability is in a Healthcare interaction What can happen when we practice with vulnerability The barriers that pop up if we aren't vulnerable Fear of being wrong Fear of blame Iterative process in health improvement Being creative and curious in practice Starting to understand yourself better Actually SEEING your patients and their challenges, not just their diagnosis The post Building vulnerability into your practice appeared first on The Art of Healthcare.

What’s your real value?
We all got into Healthcare to help people, and we do get to help a lot of people. AND A challenge for a lot of Healthcare professionals is that we don't understand the value that we deliver to our patients and clients. We undervalue ourselves, and in turn are undervalued by others - which makes us grumpy. We all need to start to understand the value that we can provide to patients. This value isn't just in a monetary sense, although it's often easiest to think about it that way. Victor Ahipene joins us to help us understand and articulate our value whether patients pay you, or you get funded by insurers or through the public system. It's great for us, and plays a huge role in how we connect with our patients and how we can assist them to get better. We talk through Why being a "people person" isn't enough to really connect with a patient What primary rapport is, and what secondary rapport is Why you don't need to ask someone about their cat Different ways you can think ab…

Is healthcare curable?
Anyone who has worked in healthcare long enough will recognise that there are parts of it that leave a bit to be desired, parts of it that are slightly broken, parts of it that are a bit sick. BUT can they be cured? Travis Christofferson is a health researcher and author of "Tripping over the truth" "Ketones, the fourth fuel" and "Curable" With that last title, Travis investigates some of the areas that are broken, and some of the ways we can "cure" the healthcare system. Strap in as we chat through - Why we get into trouble if we soley rely on intuition - That we're not as rational as we think we are - How bias shows up in our decision making - The incentives we respond to, even when we think we aren't - How we can apply checks and balances to our intuition going awry - Capping the downside of health problems - What best practice is and how we can find it - Moneyballing Medicine - Advanced healthcare for the future - Solving Zebra problems - DIY fecal transplants -…

The neuroscience of resilience
Patients come to see us in the middle of a health challenge. Their resilience is tested as they try to navigate it, and often ours is too.

Our Language shapes our landscape
Most people don't speak medicine This is a problem for us Health professionals because we've been trained to only speak medicine.
