Overview

Six components of curative care giving are discussed. The author discusses research findings that deals with healing Intervention (HEI) from which care givers can carve out healing practices.Maureen Uche continues to be passionate about the spirituality of healing. In "Caregiver as Healer” she presents major responsibilities of all health caregivers. Learn how you may become an healer. Being a healer is simply embracing the six components of healing interventions. When a patient is lonely and we reach out to touch them, or when a patient is thirsty and we offer a cool cup of water we are embracing healing interventions in healthcare. “The Caregiver as healer” encourages caregivers to use healing interventions (HEI) alongside mechanical hospital interventions (HOI). Read more to find out what hospital interventions are and how they may be harming your patients rather than healing.


"My critique of Hospital Interventions is this: They do not involve patients in focused experience with the spiritual, the emotional, and the cultural aspect of care giving which results in healing. Hospital Interventions keep medicine at the center of patient’s hospital experience. Hospital Interventions do not necessarily foster deeper spirituality, compassion, respect, or care for the transcendence, and Healing Interventions do.” -- Excerpts from the Preface
