In Health Care, before you can take care of someone else you need to be able to take care of yourself. I am envisioning a place where Health Care Students can go to and take some time to focus on themselves, get study tips, find updates on medical advances and find a place to cope with stress. Alas, this Health Care Student Break Room is the purpose of my blog.
I am a student in the Provincial Instructor Diploma Program and also an Instructor for Health Care Aides. I view the spectrum from both ends and so, I have a couple sections dedicated to my PIDP community and also a place for instructors to view some information on technology in the classroom.
As a nurse, I strongly believe that health is more than the physical being free of disease. Health and wellness encompasses 5 determinants of health; being the individuals intellectual, emotional, physical, spiritual and social well-being. Rick Hanson once said ” I realized back then that my biggest disability was my attitude.”
So, My Dear Reader, hopefully somewhere in the blog we can enrich at least one of the 5 determinants in your life and keep you inspired.
