How To Coach And Nurse Patients Perfectly

I am a nurse and I have a degree in business management and social work. Five years ago I finished my training at International Coach Academy (all virtual) to become a certified trainer. My first thought was to help people in the healthcare industry, but my clients come from many different professions, and I was soon known simply as Coach. I recently had an experience that made me pause and possibly call all the nurses that I know say they miss an opportunity to partner with a deep level with their patients, families, colleagues, staff and personally. It all began in December 2009 with my mom friends. I noticed how everything I had done during the past 30 years came together just in time to learn a life lesson, I think you will enjoy.

My best friends mother is 81 years and has 50 years of diabetes. One can only imagine the difficulties he encounters in his body on a daily basis. UTI in December when he was hospitalized and is doing well now. During this period of illness and healing, we met wonderful nurses, doctors, social workers and home nursing. This was an experience quite well in this difficult time. Of course, had a frustrating time for everyone when we tried together with his mother and the life time of non-compliance.

To all the nurses out there who want to improve their knowledge in their profession, I recommend you check out Life Coaching. I have been to many conferences and learned a lot about my field, laboratory results, technology, and so on. Even attended seminars to learn to deal with difficult people. Coaching is one of the most effective communication tools available today and is designed to place-making, accountability, results, and celebrations with the people they belong also to our patients and their families. I hope you find it interesting.

A nurse who was trained as a coach will be able to hear what is said about a very different level. You know how we could fix things, right? When you exercise, you become a partner in a unique way with the intention of going along with the patient and / or family and help them develop the results they want. We are already doing in different areas of care. The ability to do much more in a way that honors our patient is interesting and easy to obtain.

My friend encouraged her to live with them during the first months of recovery. Mom was given a few lessons on how to eat like a diabetic and a basic review of medication and insulin use. After 50 years, whether or not! I asked to speak with mom and see if there was anything he could do to help the family in general. RN professional coaching, I found the real break came when simply asked: What is important to you now She said I feel well enough to visit my children before dying. The questions begin. Help me understand what it means to feel good. She wanted to have blood sugar that could predict if you feel scared all the time. Began a dialogue that describes your fears, especially at night. Later in the morning I feel I have a hangover and can not get out of bed.

Looking at your data that could reverse some units of insulin levels increase blood sugar, always within normal limits. The fear, the night was a great surprise, the family really had no idea. We talked about what she was afraid, but more importantly, what would help them feel safe. Only occasionally, he said, I do not know.During this process are the opportunities to establish what was important mother especially because we know that people tend to do those things that are important to them.

According to the family for the first time in 15 years Mother is taking steps to improve their health and their relationship with their children. Since these areas are addressed family said she was walking, using his cane, helping in the bathroom and left in place for much of the day. Before she moved to join her son, she asked what he thought should be given to the daughter and son-in-law is preparing to receive at home. I liked his response prompted me to encourage nurses to consider adding to your coaching practice. She said, Desiree, it was as if suddenly, people understand that I have to ask what I am willing and eager to do and what happens with my answer. It makes all the difference. You know, the nurses want you told what to do because I want to improve, but sometimes do not match our goals.

The most natural trainers are actually nurses. I see people from all professions are a life or health and wellness coaching and development in nursing appears to be increasing slowly. He is our next natural step to meet the patients and their families where they are, respect their decisions, but with them everything that we need to improve their quality of life that defines the improvement and quality.
