My Approach to Care
As an advanced illness management nurse practitioner, I have the privilege to work with patients suffering from chronic unsolvable diseases. I help them understand the nature and pathway of their illness so they are able to make timely informed decisions concerning their own care. As one of the team members, my job is to try to improve patient’s quality of life by managing symptoms and assisting them to have a clear understanding of all options. I see the patient beyond the disease and help the person find their new normal, to not become the disease, and most important to feel back in control of their life.
