Training Healthcare Providers
Dealing with the complexity of patient care is at times overwhelming for doctors as well as other care professionals and requires specific set of skills. An interdisciplinary training environment is needed to guide them through the complexity, with the patient being a key partner in his/her wellbeing.
We are specialised in training health professionals in Theraputic Patient Education (TPE) accompanying chronic patients to better manage their illness and improve their health. By closely working with the patients and creating individual health plan we further empower this partnership.
Doctors as other health professionals need to count on their patients as care partners. How about empowering your staff with patients empowerment skills?
Our four training programmes are listed below:
Providing care requires the skill to understand and identify the patient’s difficulties & needs. The next step is setting patient’s health learning needs and setting goals, with empowering the patient for self-care & self-management. The last step is evaluating patient’s learning process.
A team caring for people living with chronic conditions – eg. Diabetic patients needs a specific set of skills: team collaboration skills, being able to provide patient self management support, lifestyles counseling ability.
A care centre or organisation managing chronic patients needs a robust structure for complex system management. The right tools, techniques and strategies such as optimizing patient health record and introducing care pathways are essential. Implementing collaborative interprofessional team work alongside training of trainers (TOT) helps to build a more sustainable model.
Self-Care is every action you take to care for yourself. It is not a new concept as it has been practised since ages in every culture around the world, with development of traditional remedies to keep body healthy, give strength and help it thrive.
Self-care is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the ability to take actions to improve self health and wellbeing.
Health is your most valuable resource. It is our responsibility to do our best to preserve it through implementing best health practices leading to wellbeing and happiness. This is achieved by knowing your health needs – do you know what keeps you healthy? Are you fully informed while making your health choices? How confident do you feel in dealing with acute disease when you are ill with flu, migraine or backpain? What skills would you need to manage your chronic disease such as diabetes, asthma or high blood pressure? What support from your care providers do you expect in accompanying you in your chronic disease care journey? Do you know what health resources are available in your community?
Our workshops focus on the four main elements, listed below:
Identifying your health needs to stay healthy, prevent disease and manage illness is a fundamental base on which health actions can be taken. As such, you need to establish a health care plan for your life, that should be adapted regarding the stage of life journey you are in.
Keeping active and eating healthily is essential to body healthy functioning. There is a need for organizing dedicated time for physical activity. Exercise needs to be about: balance, strength and endurance. Food plays a large role in keeping it healthy. There are food building block (carbs, fats, protiens, nutriants and water) that need to be balanced to create a health eating plan.
There is no physical well being without piece of mind. And the body cannot rest if the mind is suffering, as both are closely interconnected. How to have a “healthy mind in a healthy body”? Identify your mental wellbeing with the impact of stress & emotions, rest & sleep and toxic load.
Our environment has a great role. Access to clean air & water and healthy food will all determine our health. Toxic elements of our environment including pesticides, preservatives, antibiotics in our food as well as in daily care products & cosmetics use have a negative impact on our health.
