Filling the Post-Operative/Procedure/Visit Void


Colin, this sadly, is all true. There used to be discharge planning meeting that were patient-centered. The scope of these meetings, if they still occur, has changed. Socio-economic issues are never a consideration and often the planning participants are talking over the patient & family’s head. There are ways to change this; we just have to be mindful of the problem.

Rouse House – Christope Rober HervouetBlog post by Colin Hung

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC) Annual Meeting. It was the first time at this conference and I was excited to be going. I was anxious to see the latest innovations for patient self-care at home and the latest evolution of aging-in-place technologies. I should have read the prospectus better.

The target audience for the NAHC15 event wasn’t patients at all. The 2,500 attendees were mostly from organizations that provide in-home care to patients. Many were from companies that send clinicians, nurses, caregivers and social workers to paitents’ homes. Because of that, many of the vendors in the exhibit hall had tools and technologies that were designed to help manage this type of mobile and remote workforce.

Although I was initially disappointed, I found NAHC15 to be eye-opening. Being a newbie, I spoke…

My Social “Secret Sauce”


These are great tools. and from my POV, Suzi’s sauce is a really good recipe. The only one I haven’t tried is ManageFlitter bu I certainly plan to check it out. You should too.

Social Media, etc.

As a Social Strategist I do a lot of work with clients on building up their brands and executing various types of initiatives and relationship-building. But, as a lot of you know, I also spend a good bit of time building up my own “personal brand”. Now before I go any further let me make it clear that this post is not designed to be a “How to Build Your Personal Brand” post. If I was going to do one of those it would be super short: “Your online persona should be an authentic representation of your offline self.” *mic drop*

The way that I go about building my personal brand may not be how you should do it. A blog, for example, might not be the best fit for you. One of the biggest things that I’ve learned is that you have to be honest with yourself before you…

An A-Hole dentist shoots #CecilTheLion and Social Media Erupts


RichSimmonds

CLIkY6GUwAA1ajYThey say hunting is the only sport where your opponent does not know they are in the game! When real arseholes like Dr. Walter J. Palmer kill Cecil the collared Lion, you have to start questioning what type of person hunts? We already know that they are not just men who are poorly endowed, but also women who think they were born to be men with small members – honestly, hunting may have good conservation reasons, but the killing of animals that form part of our heritage just because you have too much money is a real shame. Perhaps these hunters should be dismembered first, and then allow them to decide if they still have enough energy to hunt in the first hour after their dismemberment, then give them a spear and let the opponent smell their blood. The idea may be barbaric, but it would certainly make hunting a fair sport.
