Today I’m continuing my series on collaborative healthcare by branching out from what I have been doing in the past several episodes. If you’ve been following along in the series, you’ll know that each week I’ve been interviewing one of my colleagues from Brain and Body Rehabilitation Specialists (BBRS). However, I know so many people outside of BBRS that have experience in collaborative healthcare and I wanted you to have a chance to hear from them as well.
Today I’m interviewing my friend Kelly Haner who will share with us the unique perspective of what it’s like to be a parent in the midst of working with a number of healthcare professionals to ensure the best outcome for her child. Before her son was born 15 years ago, Kelly had no idea that collaborative healthcare even existed, but after he was born and diagnosed with cerebral palsy, she found herself in conversations with a variety of practitioners. Kelly had to take the information from various experts, who sometimes shared conflicting information, and then apply that to her son’s life and trust that at the end of the day, she was her son’s biggest advocate and had to decide the best course of action for his treatment and care. Kelly actually quit her full-time job in order to have the time and energy to research, ask questions, and advocate for her son’s best interests. After her son’s diagnosis, Kelly was introduced to the world of essential oils, and after doing her own research, found them to be an incredible complementary healthcare approach. In this episode, Kelly talks about the role of a parent in collaborative healthcare and shares about using essential oils, how they work, and what to look for when purchasing your own oils.
In this episode, we cover:
- Kelly’s experience as a parent collaborating with healthcare professionals
- Why the role of a parent in collaborative healthcare might be the most important one
- How Kelly got started with essential oils
- Using essential oils as a complementary healthcare approach
- Why high-quality essential oils matter
