Subject: Nutrition and Wellness
Do you feel that you are emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, and nutritionally balanced at all times?
100% no. Wellness is an attribute that I am constantly working on. Some days my nutrition will be great but I had no intellectual stimulation and vice versa. My goal is always to balance out the components of my wellness. I find that when I try to balance them out I feel the best. If I overflow one cup then the others are empty. However, if I give a little to each cup I feel the most fulfilled.
What forms of non pharmacology would you use for pain management?
Prior to using medication there are several ways to manage pain. Creating a calming environment is key. This may be turning the lights down, the tv off, and perhaps relaxing music. Some patients need distraction from the pain. This may be watching tv, visiting with family, reading, etc. Positioning the patient for optimal comfort is also important. Get pressure off the area of pain. Ice,heat, and/or massage can also be used to reduce pain. All of these tactics should be considered prior to or in conjunction with the use of pain medication. It is important to understand that every situation is different and every patient is unique in their needs.
As a manager how would you encourage growth and development among your employees?
I would meet with each individual employee to understand their goals for their career. I would develop ways to foster those goals. This may be putting them on committees, providing education classes, or giving them extra responsibilities that pertain to their advancement.
