Perfect for health care providers Apr 15, 2006
During the season of Lent I started a new part-time job as a congregational health nurse. My husband is also a health care provider. This book was an ideal daily devotional, with the perfect mixture of laughter and tears. Patterson eloquently expresses the struggles we face each day. We're ordering additional copies for our friends and co-workers.
Best help for busy health professionals! Dec 21, 2005
Nurses and other health care professionals work under stress; of that there is no doubt. Knowing that vulnerable patients' lives are in your hands is an awesome responsibility and, combined with the pressure of cost-consciousness, challenges even the most committed professional. As an ordained minister and head of the association of parish nurses this articulate writer has collected a series of meditations and prayers to support dedicated professionals as they go about their work of caring for others.
The book is divided into two sections: meditations and prayers. The meditations are thought-provoking mini-essays that use vignettes of real-world experiences to illustrate the author's points. Some topics are handled lightly with an astute sense of humor; others are more contemplative. The section of prayers is more specific, targeting individual situations, such as a prayer for those facing surgery or death or for the healer who is overwhelmed. All help the busy professional gain insight into his or her life and work, thus enhancing the care giver's ability to tend to others. This book is an invaluable aid to those who work in the helping professions.
