For more than two decades, I have given keynotes in front of hundreds of people, a TEDx Talk for a worldwide audience, and talks in a room of only a few dozen people. But when I feel most helpless is when I receive a call from a friend, family member or stranger who is experiencing a health crisis and needs support when navigating specific situations.
I don’t feel helpless because I don’t think I can help this person. I feel helpless because I want to help even more people⏤and now I can.
As a 25-year cancer survivor then caregiver to my husband, Wesley, during his year-long illness and double-lung transplant, I provide expert trainings for providers, patients and caregivers who are navigating even the most complicated medical experiences.
Endorsed by leading physicians throughout the country, I conduct a customized course aimed at equipping providers, patients and caregivers with what I have termed Empathetic Healthcare Practices™⏤the tools needed for positive outcomes throughout healthcare experiences.
Had I not learned about effective patient communication and provider expectation, I wouldn't have known how to intervene and help change the outcome of my mother's uncertain fate when she was misdiagnosed with a fatal illness or teach our dad how to lead her care in the months ahead as she faced setbacks along her complicated path to a full recovery.
I couldn't have known that the medical events in my life would lead to a career as an author, inspirational speaker and a patient advocate educator. Honestly, there have been many times when I have considered a major transition out of the space of educator as it applies to healthcare, but I continue feeling called because even though being an expert in this field has proved heartbreaking and exhausting over the years, it’s also been incredibly rewarding and has created a needed balance in my life after losing my husband by helping others who are enduring similar experiences.
The course allow me the opportunity to allot the time needed to help the people I can help while I also move forward in my life and seek joy and fulfillment outside of the medical crisis’ my family has faced.
Upon completing the Empathetic Healthcare Practices™ course, you will become empowered in your communication and expectations, whether you’re a provider, patient or caregiver, and you will gain multiple tools for navigating complicated, and even routine, healthcare experiences.
