Synopsis:
Stories can be powerful medicine. Sharing experiences and feelings helps people make sense of their lives and process trauma and loss better. That's the concept behind Privileged Presence. This timely book uses real-world experiences from patients, nurses, doctors, and others in the field to illustrate what works and what doesn't, what increases or diminishes people's sense of confidence and well-being. From surviving ER trauma to navigating a byzantine health-care system to unexpected moments of loving comfort, these stories offer new ways of dealing with some of life's most challenging times. What is Privileged Presence?Privileged Presence. One title, two words, three meanings. Health care experiences are defining moments in people's lives- Health care professionals are privileged to be present with patients and families; patients and families are alsoprivileged to have the presence of health care professionals, who have training, caring, andcompassion; and readers can feel privileged to be in the presence of those who were willing to open their hearts and share their personal stories for this collection.
