Description

Finding the necessary healthcare solutions for patients and caregivers in Australia can be a daunting task. Although the Australian healthcare system is world-class, its evolution has led to complexities, inequalities and frustrations for healthcare practitioners and patients alike.

In this book, you will learn:

  • why diagnosis and treatment need to adopt a more holistic view of individuals.
  • which practices and restrictions prohibit healthcare practitioners from delivering the best care for their patients, despite their best intentions.
  • where to find the help and support you need based on your unique circumstances.
  • how to navigate the existing healthcare system to achieve the best results.
  • how minor adjustments to the care and treatment of the ill, aged, disabled and disenfranchised can significantly improve patient outcomes.

It is time that our healthcare system provides people with the support they need, not just to recover from an illness, but to secure the best possible results for individuals and their families physically, mentally, emotionally and personally.

About the author
Anne Crawford is happily married and has a lovely daughter. She lives in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. Anne began writing after an accident caused her vision impairment and left her legally blind. During her rehabilitation, she decided to write a book, and this effort helped her enormously. She began her adult life caring for her severely disabled grandmother until she entered an aged care facility. The experience led her to follow her mother’s footsteps into nursing. After working for a while in an acute trauma hospital in Melbourne, Anne studied midwifery. She spent time in Launceston, Tasmania, as a midwife before returning home to study for her Master’s in Public Health. Back in Melbourne, Anne worked extensively across community healthcare both as a nurse and in research. It is this broad experience with healthcare, as a patient, caregiver and professional, that has enabled her to recognize the profession’s shortcomings and, rather than complain of them, suggest solutions to the problems she sees. As the premiere healthcare coach in Australia, she hopes to one day see many more in the healthcare industry embracing the benefits of including a healthcare coach as part of their patient care teams.
