Genuine sharing of what we do know, with how we collectively manage the unknown can't be understated during these uncertain times.  Thank you for the support!

I think emphasizing what patients can do themselves to feel like they have a measure of control (as outlined in step 4) is a big part of what we will help with them when they are out of our line of communication! We can help them feel reassured when we are directly with them (even remotely) but once they're on their own, our education and reassurance should help them face their moment-to-moment fears with greater confidence.

I appreciated the suggestions and recommendations.  It is important to be emotionally present for the patient when we are dealing with our own set of stressors within a changing health care approach.  Best wishes to all.

Thank you. It is excellent. Not only right now but to have something like this should be taught to all health care workers in school and on orientation to their job. Can I please share with my students.

Those were some great helpful tips. Sometimes when your on the phone with patients it's hard to remember all the information we are getting in our emails on a daily basis. And this was 4 simple steps that could make even a little difference to patients lives right now.

I think this presentation says it all.  WE are all in this together.  We need to point out the extreme time that our President and his cabinet, that FEMA, and that lab techs and Physicians, etc., etc. spend fighting this demon called Covid 19

I hadn't thought that responding with emotion to an emotion was a good idea, but the way it was presented makes sense.

This helped me to understand the emotional vs unemotional response. I will use this to guide me not only with patients/families but also my own family. 
I would like to add something that seems to be helping locally, is communicating specifics info regarding safety, protection, & preparedness at the local cancer clinic. 
Thank you

Thank you for this. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to deal with the increasingly abusive patients. My providers and I have chalked it up to Covid related stress, but have come across more and more abusive patient behaviors towards all of our staff (including the providers). If there is another video related to this question I will be happy to watch it and share with staff.

Thanks for the video and I really feel it is helping. Patients are very anxious about covid and he news is making the matter worst and these patients do not know how to deal with anxiety and worries. Some of their worries are mostly due to lack of information and they are looking up to us for knowledge. I feel we should be able to address their worries and reassure them by updating them on update information and encourage them to remain safe. Also teaching them the 4-7-8 rule for anxiety will help. Finally we should inform patients about the serenity prayer as it can help with theirs worries. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things that I can and the wisdom to know they difference. This will help them realize that they should not really spend their time worrying about what is happening in the government, politics  or the news. All they can control is their lives, remaining safe and protecting themselves and their loved ones. Also I cannot reassure patients of the covid 19 vaccinations as I have received it and I have not had any side effects.
