IMPROVING THE TREATMENT ODDS: BREAST CANCER

Your patient comes at you bewildered asking dozens of questions. What is it?  What are the risk factors? What are the statistics?  What is the treatment plan? What does the future look like? Helping your patient make sense of breast cancer is a both challenging and necessary.

Chaumette Consulting provides you with the tools you need to optimize patient outcome.

ADDRESSING A TABOO SUBJECT: INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE

You are certain that the broken bones and bruises on your patient were not caused by "tripping" or a "falling". IPV varies in frequency and severity. It occurs on a continuum, ranging from a single episode which  might not have lasting impact to chronic and severe episodes over years and decades.  Having that conversation is uncomfortable but lifesaving.

Health care professionals can help solve the problem of violence against men, women and children if they learn how to ask about violence.  By knowing and identifying the signs of domestic violence or sexual abuse, you can help victims protect themselves. 

 

Chaumette Consulting offers trainings that can help you and your staff:

  • better understand Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and their impacts on health

  • develop policies, procedures and workflows to help patients develop personal safety plans

  • promote nonviolent relationships.  

 

You CAN do something and we can help.

INTEGRATING  THE CAREGIVER IN YOUR  PRACTICE

During the patient's appointment, you notice sign of over-burden and depression in the caregiver.  The Family Caregiver Alliance found that 40%-70% of caregivers have symptoms of depression. Your patient's caregiver is an integral part of the treatment plan.  If the caregiver does not put his health and welfare first, it has a direct impact on the patient's quality of care.

Learn how to optimize patient care by addressing the needs of the caregiver.
