Caregiving as a Spiritual Gift

Each of us, at some point, will become a caregiver to a loved one, parent or friend. Many of us can point to this kind of experience as the catalyst to our careers. The benefits that come from being a caregiver are many and I've learned that my work caring for my clients is not separate from my spiritual practice — it is one.

Some of Florida’s most vulnerable residents — the frail elderly and poor or disabled adults — will be ushered into a new era of healthcare over the next five months that will change the way they receive their taxpayer funded long-term care from Medicaid, the federal-state program for the poor and disabled.

The federal government requires that by September 23 medical practices need to have added the new patient rights privacy notices to the hand outs that they give all of their patients or they will not be in compliance with government regulation.

The simple description for pneumatic compression therapy is: the application of a pneumatic garment, usually a leg wrap or arm wrap, to an extremity. The garment is attached to an air pump which inflates and deflates the garment in a specific, calibrated, timed sequenced manner for the purpose of achieving a variety of therapeutic effects. Most people think of this modality as a treatment for lymphedema only, but this is not the case.

This is 2013, and it’s not your father’s compression therapy anymore. There are three distinct types of compression currently available, indicated for several different types of therapy: lymphatic, vascular and arterial. The purpose and scope of this article is to familiarize the reader with each of these modalities and their applications, so that when the need for compression arises, access of the equipment is rapidly facilitated and not delayed due to confusion or lack of understanding.

  The Pedagogy Philosophy

Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching, instruction, and training. It is the goal of Pedagogy to offer the most current course content, with the highest possible quality, using a variety of education methods and strategies. Attainment of licensure and formal education is not the end of education. Professionals, both practitioners and educators, are responsible for continually developing their knowledge and skills. Through continuing education and self-directed professional growth, health care providers are better prepared to deliver quality care to their patients.
