Clinical 30/30/30: Management of High-Risk Patients: It’s Not Just the Therapy!

Describe your session in a tweet.

Frank conversations, filled with compassion, are key elements of success when managing high-risk patients in the community.

What is the most important thing you want attendees to take away from your session?

Regarding conversations with patients with a history or current IVDU, it's important to have a good conversation with the patient who comes from a place of love and caring and centers on their value as a human being. Make it a point to acknowledge their addiction struggles, talk about the risks without lecturing, and emphasize their worth as a human above all else. Always acknowledge with the patients--the temptation to misuse the line and addiction is super powerful. As someone who doesn't share their struggle can't truly understand, but can try. Remind them of how much they are worth as a person & how devastated everyone would be if something bad were to happen because of line misuse. Ask them to remember our conversation & these affirmations of their worth if they are tempted.

Excluding your session, what other topics are you passionate about in relation to the home and alternate site industry?

I love that we bring the infusion suite to the comfort of the patient's home.

What are you passionate about outside the home and alternate site infusion industry?

Away from work I enjoy time with my "hockey" family, as my daughter plays 15U hockey.

What is your superpower?

Multi-tasking at it's finest!

What additional superpower would you like to have and why?
