Was wonderful to see that we are focusing on the patient's emotional well-being not just the physical aspect of healing.

The current study identified time as the biggest barrier to dealing with CIs. Inpatient units often scheduled meetings, debriefings, and Healing the Healer classes at shift change. Some participants reported it difficult to step away from patient care, while others mentioned the challenges of coming to work early, staying later, or coming in on a day off. Training should be done fairly to cover this important topic.

Emotional presence, reassuring words/touch, and encouraging coaching are all vital to excellent nursing. This article highlights the benefits of each. Emotional well-being is essential to physical well-being and I hope this treatment plan is implemented across all practices.

I cannot see how this article would not be helpful to any caregiver (RN, LNA) in a variety of settings. Pts need to feel heard and comforted, and they will have increased participation in their own healing.
