Advanced Illness Management begins with Serious Illness Conversations
(My message aligns with the Conversation Project but there’s no affiliation)
Best practice for advanced illness management balances medical treatment with holistic coaching. This often requires a team approach, but who’s the coach? The physician, the patient, the POA, or the higher power? While primary medicine is provided by the physician, holistic coaching comes from the heart.
Like a TEDx speaker, my holistic medical coaching is a call to action that
promotes the best interest of the person in advanced illness management.
My holistic philosophy best aligns with hospice companies that want to support advanced illness management and need physician referrals. Nurses affectionately refer to me as “Dr. Hospicehorst.”
We all feel the need to treat others humanely at the end of life because this will ultimately be us one day. Thus, we need to LEAD with holistic coaching and FOLLOW with hospice care in matters of the heart. Permit me to help your company impact the hospice industry similar to my TEDx presentation “Real Serious Illness Conversations with Parents.”
