Oct 17, 2023 • E155 • 00:19:00
Today’s guest is Ceena Jenkins, sharing a patient’s perspective on healthcare on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver. This is interview 44 in the Guinness World Record Setting patient’s perspective interview marathon. Ceena is from the sweetest place on earth, Hershey Pennsylvania. She brings her perspective as a patient and as a state employee empowering people with disabilities. Her openness is powerful and refreshing.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Ceena Jenkins gave us a patient’s perspective on healthcare:
- All healthcare workers are “Healthcare Heroes”. There is not one name that jumps to mind as standing out above the others, each of them plays their own role in serving their community.
- Quality healthcare involves providers taking the time to understand the patients need, considering alternatives, and involving the patient in developing the treatment plan.
- There is still stigma that surrounds mental health concerns. Medical professionals, and the community at large, need to be more understandable and empathetic for people experiencing mental health challenges.
