The Human Centered Health Home (HCHH) is the broad model I’ve been developing with colleagues in our Center for Innovation in Family and Community Health (CIFCH). Many holistic skills and the relationship driven aspects of Family Medicine fit nicely into the HCHH.
The five senses connect the human dyad that assumes the patient-physician roles. The overlapping energy fields of the dyad allow further connection.
How do they develop and enhance the healing potential? What type of partnership evolves for the dyad that grows to neighborly proportions, powerful enough to protect the pair from the unsafe aspects of the Medical world? How does the pair allow exploration of new and unusual strategies for health maintenance and responses to chronic and sometimes fatal conditions? How do they learn to respect and honor each other in the context of their shared and respective life quests?
How can a human in the patient role quickly realign a physician into a mutually beneficial relationship? How will a person in the patient role know when they should sever a potentially harmful relationship with a physician?
I’ll blog about this the next couple days to circle the potential in the HCHH model for use by activists . I’ve written and spoken about holistic strategies for clinical survival for medical learners and holistic strategies for dealing with chronic pain for patients and practitioners.
Together, as humans, we can connect in a healing dyad of patient and physician, protected from the unsafe, financially destructive aspects of the Medical Industrial Complex.
Can this happen to help those with chronic diseases?
What do you think?
