How well do you understand the values your patient holds? What do they care about besides just getting their problem fixed?

We can “fix” their problem AND not actually improve their lives or their health. BUT if we understand what matters to them then we are better able to fix their problem in a way that not only improves their health, but also improves their lives.

I’m joined by Eva Villalba for a conversation all about values based healthcare. We chat through

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 about your value Why you're doing your patients a disservice if you don't value your skillset Why you are an "expert" How to set and meet expectations  Why practice doesn't actually make perfect ...

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. ...

Making sense of the rules of health

How do people make sense of their health? And how does that inform their health behaviours? Two questions that this week’s guest Ben Darlow has been pondering for quite some time. How do we as health professionals help people make sense of their health, all the health information that is out there, and hopefully nudge them towards healthier behaviours in the long run. Today we talk through The spectrum of beliefsWhen rules around healthcare are helpful, and when (most of the time) they’re notGoing from population based health information to applying it at an individual levelExploring health beliefs – our patient’s and our ownSome of the beliefs that get in the way of recoveryEquipping someone to make their own @[email protected] about health“Some of it’ll be in your body.
