We all have some ability to regain health, but expert care creates the best possible environment for healing. A highly effective nurse understands complex interactions which produce particular patterns of disease, expertly guiding patients towards optimal health.
Home Care Options
A Registered Nurse (RN) led team helps clients recover at home — as much as possible — after major health events.
Intensive home care to improve thinking (e.g. problem solving, speech & short-term memory) as well as emotional control after brain injury.
Supporting patients & families to reduce the cumulative impact of illness, worry and health-related depression on daily life.
Our Work: Building a new kind of nursing.
As COVID-19 continues to spread internationally, there is an urgent need to review evidence-informed approaches to symptom self-management. There are currently 4 pillars of symptom self-management which may enhance the likelihood of successful recovery from COVID-19.
The 4 pillars of symptom self management for COVID-19 are inspired by the evidence-based Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) principles, which have dramatically improved post-surgical recovery times using a supportive care philosophy.
Empathy is not easy when we feel rejected by the other party, or when there is conflict. However, it remains a critical skill required of professionals in almost all meaningful health care interactions. The Trauma-informed Empathy (TiE™) toolkit is published as an open-source set of tools to support empathy skills development from a neurobiological perspective.
While many health professionals associate empathy with active listening, listening alone doesn’t ensure understanding. Behind empathy are a set of critical skills (e.g. presence, safety and belonging) which open minds to deeper connection. Our goal in creating these tools was to utilizing the emerging science of connection to improve the quality of clinical interactions.
In 1859, Florence Nightingale founded modern nursing with a simplistic but evocative book. Her Notes on Nursing forged a new vision for the profession, bringing basic care back to the forefront of health. ConsortiaCare.ca was also founded with the bold idea of providing care that is equally evocative, bringing an attitude of discovery back to home nursing care.
