Good Communication

Clinicians are part of your clinical team. If you are in a peripheral facility, methods need to be developed for good communication and at least yearly meetings.

Communicate with the district hospital/clinic concerning all chronic patients,
even when treatment is initiated at the first level facility.

Coordinate care with appropriate clinic/clinicians.

Refer patients back to clinicians as appropriate.

"L'Approche SALT a bouleversé ma vie"

Je menais ma vie normale, je fesais tout ce qui me passai par la tête, je menais les activités de terrain en qualité d'expert, consultant et je considerais comme quelqu'un qui connaissais tout, j'écoutais difficilement les autres...........

Dans les années 2005 - 2006, quand j'ai pris contact avec l'approche SALT, j'ai senti que ma vie a changé et elle est devenue bouleversante dans ce sens que je commences à planifier mes activités familiale et professionnelle et surtout savoir…

SALT and appreciating strengths

Last week, I reflected on whether by appreciating STRENGTHS we failed to appreciate the individual or the community in all of their diversity. Here are some thoughts that have been developing during the week.
I wish that I had learned many years ago about the power of appreciating strengths. I think that it is fair to say that it has transformed my life. I want to be clear about how I understand the idea. It is not that I move away from analysing weaknesses. It is not that I seek to balance…

Rape....When Will the Victim get Justice

Gender-based violence affects millions of women and girls whose lives have been uprooted by conflict and displacement. Rape is used as a weapon of war; women and girls seeking refuge are often coerced into sex in exchange for food or safe passage. Forcing women or girls to submit to sexual acts has been described as a form of gender-based violence against women. Reports say that rape causes severe physical and psychological pain and suffering. Rape also can…

Touching Life with Dialogue

It is easy to create new things, change places or do something different. To keep that sense of newness that creates enthusiasm is more difficult. The secret of newness in life is not to do new things constantly, but to see everything you do with new eyes, new insights and a new perspective. Do not waste your time behi...nd people who do not have the capacity to sustain your newnesss of life.

Dialogue is about what we value and how we define it. It is about discovering what our true…

why do i love you? Let me count the ways

I have written of how smitten I am about the ACP tools, Like all lovestruck person, i do not have the words to tell you why...but i could make attempts:
1. the tools doesnt have zero in it, which means that anyone,ANYONE has something that he/she can share. has goals, a lot of people (including me) sometimes get caught up with the immediate needs and concerns that we lose focus on what it is that we really want. Goal no.5 in the tool, gives a somewhat good…

Exploring SALT visits and SALT behaviours....part 2

With SALT, we 'appreciate strengths'. Why do we appreciate STRENGTHS? Why don't we appreciate individuals for all of their traits, weak or strong? Are we failing to appreciate the full glory of our humanity by focusing on strengths?
A story.
When my children were growing up in England, I was one of the coaches in the local football team. Each year, for each year-group we selected the best players to make up 2 teams and that was it. Those best players became the players in the…

Exploring SALT visits and SALT behaviours

I would like to explore some aspects of a SALT visit (and SALT behaviours) that intrigue me and that puzzle me. To some extent this is a personal exploration, but I would be very intrigued to hear the thoughts of others.

I want to explore the power that comes from letting go of hierarchical relationships during a SALT visit. When a group of visitors merges with a group of visited so that the distinctions between them (us) fade away, the opportunities to learn from each…
