Dr Nicky Baillie - The Art of Caring. When to Act, When to Sit Still
Many of us come into the health profession because we care and because we want to make a difference to people’s lives. What blocks and what nurtures the art of caring? How can we care in a way that fosters each of our clients to grow and heal? How do we look after ourselves and sustain our own wellbeing in this process?
With the escalation of more complex and varied diagnostic tests, interventions, pharmaceuticals, herbal medicines, and supplements, what we can offer our clients nowadays can be overwhelming. How do we navigate through the options, and choose wisely? How do we take the best of our training, and our knowledge, to diagnose, prescribe and ‘act’? When is it better to sit still?
Nicky will delve into the caring relationship we have with our clients and how it can make a meaningful and significant difference to wellbeing. She will also take a closer look at diagnostic tests and their applications and limits, and share stories from her clinical practice.
