LEARNING TO WORK w/PATIENT'S PREFERENCES!

OUTLINE:
 
Secrets To Upgrade Communications
w/Underserved Population
 
 
---Get to know the Needs + Preferences of the subject. Most Needs are provided in the Hospital setting. It is in the Preferences where the uniqueness comes out. If one assists another with getting at least some his Preferences met regularly (and, since we are putting NEEDS in a GIVEN category)…one is well on his way with knowing about that person.

---We ALL have Needs + Preferences. How these are met usually denote the QUALITY OF OUR LIFE. If these are met regularly we are probably doing pretty well. If these are NOT known AND are not addressed at all then the person can easily feel disenfranchised and disconnected. We are trying to state how important and significant these conditions are. And, once again, we assume that the Needs are addressed in a hospital setting. Needs in general have to do with food, clothing and shelter. It is the preferences we are focusing our concerns.

---In the world of desire systems we know that one does better if he truly has NO DESIRE. The less desire would next be preferable. In the world where most of us realistically dwell…N’s + P’s are much as I have stated. A preference that is met and satisfied far outweighs one that is NOT met and left to exist in ALL its UNMET GLORY. A goal in this could be to refine preferences overtime to be things that the subject really enjoys participating.


---One is truly more at home with himself if his life is set up to meet his preferences in the course of his regular day. If someone enjoys what he does and has his Needs + Preferences met in the natural course of his living…he, as we have previously stated, is probably doing pretty well. The other side of that coin would be - if one N’s + P’s are left unmet and hanging loosely, one probably does NOT enjoy living to a great extent at all.


---The behavior of the subject will be ‘nicer’ and ’gentler’ through this. He will be happier and firing on more cylinders. You will see more niceness gushing forth. A greater degree of satisfaction will permeate all he does. This tends to ‘upgrade’ his general mood and lightens the load which he is carrying.

---If ALL is done intelligently…one learns how to massage his interaction with subject to get the maximum response from him. The goal is to get him thinking and doing for himself...being as independent as possible. Depending where the subjects starts, but great strides are very possible if done correctly. (The right tool for the right job!)

OUR JOY COMES IN SEEING THE SUBJECT TRULY ENJOY HIS OWN LIFE.
