Me & my speech.

More here continuing from #21- Improve Medical Assessments & Limit Legal Hassles  But there is NO way the doctors have used to relate to me that they can use in making accurate assessments. That’s not a complicated or difficult step to take it just requires taking time to care, keep records, and process them PLUS working to learn outside of your own present knowledge. Let your patient’s speak so you understand them.

Getting Patient COMMUNICATION is Necessary to Help Eliminate More Problems

For me my problems have been made worse with the lack of accurate measuring, the lack of accurate record keeping, and the lack of my own care in recognizing the issues that caused injury before I felt pain which was delayed until infection resulted weeks or months later.  That’s why when I find my pain is totally reduced with use of ANTIBIOTICS the fear of relational problems with infections are added to my reasons to pursue future courses of action against doctors and medical services.

And unless the doctors and medical services work with the patients there will not be good assessments.  Rhapsodie’s Ideas for the Relational Corresponding PAIN Chart works in harmony with the Picture PAIN Diaries with timelines, also somewhat described below as well as being fully demonstrated in the previous posts under Rhapsodie’s Visual PAIN Diary starting on this site at present from #11- 2013 and continuing into #18- February 2018.

This can assist both patients and doctors to have pain measures that are more accurate in making assessments with averages of pain gathered through time.  This could require that the doctors give patients a way to form diaries of pain and it can help patients to make their own pain pictorial diaries more relational for doctors.  BUT the pain diaries will not be useful if the doctor doesn’t take the time to look and read through the charted information of the patient.

PLEASE REMEMBER these assessments with the ratings can shift and vary as well as the pain types BUT the doctor’s may gain some more accurate information if the details are related in a way that they will understand more accurately.  These are only ideas for tools to assist them with their care.

For Patient’s BETTER Pain Assessment Preparations can correspond to Better CARE

As previously mentioned the question of ‘How much pain are you in? Followed by the rate your levels from 0 to 10,’ by doctors and medical people isn’t good enough for accurate assessments of pain. We need more accurate understanding like:

  • Savage’s information, previously shared, about getting relational pain assessments.
  • General Visual Charts like shared by the National Institute on Pain Control (NIPC) information would produce a better chart for time and pain by patients.
  • The Visual Detailing PAIN Diaries with timelines of pain in a form like flipbooks or picture runs could help the doctors to be more accurate in making diagnosis’?
  • Using a Relational Corresponding Pain Chart to relate individual pain assessments of 0 to 10 ratings that is more than personally understood by doctors.
    • Rhapsodie details this more below.

The points above are areas that can be used to improve all pain assessments, but how can a relational corresponding pain chart be built to improve present systems?

Work For Medical People & Doctors

BUT the doctor’s may gain some more accurate information if the details are related in a way that they will understand more accurately.  These are only ideas for tools to assist them with their care. These ideas can work together with allowing doctors more understanding of their individual patient’s pain values AND showing them images they may miss in just ‘seeing’ a patient for 10 minutes every 3 to 36 months.

1st- Visual Detailing with Picture PAIN Diaries with timelines
  • Patients-
    • What is hugely beneficial with that is the fact that the instant you suffer you can start making up a relatable visual for doctors to flip through or see in assessments,

b. Picture Diary Example

  • Doctors & Medical People-
    • this will be greatly assisted by doctors providing you a method to use as a time & feeling pain diary-
      • especially if you have a prepared action outline for your patient’s to use, so
      • you’ll have an easier time seeing what they share.
    • Visual testing-
      • For testing like with an ultrasound of that arm it is likely to cause minimal pain, it is safe, and it is non-invasive.  Also it is cheaper than an MRI or a CT scan, but you can waste time and money if you are not looking correctly.
      • It’s easier to get an accurate test if you, doctors are accurate in asking for what you are testing AND your testers/ technicians/ radiologists are looking at the correct places in reviewing the pictures..

Visual testing can improve if there are relatable pictures from the feelings you and I have with the actual areas and parts of our problems that the doctors & medical people don’t accurately get with generalized assessments.

2nd- Relational Corresponding Pain Chart

A 2nd idea could be useful in fixing the issue with pain ratings, is having a combined medical Relational Corresponding PAIN Chart Part A & Part B, for the doctors to use while the patients are also doing their work with their Picture PAIN Diaries with timelines.  There are some ideas that just require doing a little bit of work and there are aspects that involve more work and this is one of those things needing more work because it comes with Part A & Part B

Rhapsodie has written about these issues for multiple reasons:

1) To have a shared written record, that’s useful. 2) To provide info to others to assist them in planning to deal with the horrid medical system of the U.S. 3) To hopefully impact doctors & health carers to do more work than just using reports which may be false.
