Nursing students must enter healthcare facilities to meet the clinical component of nursing education. With the recent diagnosis of clients with Ebola on US soil and the CDC's changing guidelines, nursing educators are engaged in conversations on how this affects students. What are the students saying? With all the information that has been reported and debated in the media, there is no doubt that students may have concerns on how this affect them. Does anyone expect that a nursing student would be asked to care for someone diagnosed with Ebola? Do we have to re-think our approach to education on infection control? Let's have a conversation about that.
Nursing Homes are the great unknown. They are a part of the health care continuum that everyone wants to avoid and no one wants to talk about. The stigma of Nursing Homes is the main reason why families, caregivers and patients neglect to make importent level of care an importnat part of their extended care plan. Join us on The Fischer Report as we talk about Nursing Homes and how to get great care from them.

Our guest, Jim Bouchard, is the Director of Marketing & Development for Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice (AHCH). Your hosts, Burl and Merry, received compassionate support in caring for Burl’s mother, Mary Ann Hall, during the final months of her life from AHCH. In gratitude, we wish to share the empatheic and responsive care Mary Ann and we, as caregivers, received with our listeners.
AHCH “cares for the health, independence, and quality of life of Maine residents and their families in the comfort of their home and community. When a person is ill or homebound, the power to heal involves more than medical treatment. It's also the touch of a hand or the warmth of a smile.” The agency has a longstanding community service mission focused on building and sustaining a continuum of in-home services to address the acute, long-term and end-of-life care needs of individuals and their families.
Hospice emphasizes palliative rather than curative treatment; quality rather than quantity of life. The dying are comforted. Professional medical care is given, and sophisticated symptom relief provided. Hospice affirms life and regards dying as a normal process. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death.
We are especially moved by the final days Mary Ann and we spent at Hospice House, thoughtfully designed to be sensitive to the needs of patients and their families, "allowing family members to be relieved of the role of caregiver and focus solely on gathering together to support their loved one.”

Here at Because Hope Matters Radio, we often talk about the integral part nurses play in helping patients heal and connecting with their caregivers. CURE Magazine takes the time to recognize exemplary oncology nurses through an "Extraordinary Healer Award." The annual recognition attracts hundreds of essay submissions from patients, survivors, and caregivers across the nation.
We're thrilled to provide another spotlight for CURE's recent award winner, Cindi Cantril. Essayist, Ann Tallman, wrote about her journey as a breast cancer survivor. Her portrayal of Cantril's care through diagnosis, surgery and treatment caught the attention of Kathy LaTour, editor-at-large at CURE Magazine. The giving, nurturing, and inspiring nature embedded in Cantril's fiber goes above and beyond. She created peer-to-peer support for patients; the "WINGS" Program helps women with all types of cancer, and a secondary WINGMEN group helps men. Cantril's drive to provide healing programs doesn't stop there; she also operates women's cancer retreats and Equine therapy.
Among more than 750 of her peers and guest speaker, actor, producer, director and best-selling author Rob Lowe, and the cancer care community, Cantril received the distinguished award. She has provided more than 40 years of research, clinical care, program development and leadership in oncology nursing care. She has published over a dozen articles and authored several chapters of Building Legacy - Voices of Oncology Nurses. Cantril also received the Oncology Nursing Society's Distinguished Service Award in 2010, among other honors on her career path.
Join us for our quarterly feature with Kathy LaTour, as we delve into the heart of oncology nursing and go above and beyond an ordinary care-watch.

WHAT'S ON THE MINDS OF OUR READERS? Bonding Thru Books Festival, a totally online literary event, was created to start a national conversation about what we want our literary legacy to be. Each night, 8-10pm EST we will discuss how we can use the leaders, icons and storytellers of today, to create body of works that will assist emerging writers and authors in being more responsible with their work and positions.
Everyone has a story! But, does that story have a purpose? What will the people in your life say about you after you are gone? What does your story hold for future generations? Let's create a life, a story, a journey that others will want to emulate! You are important to this community and we want to hear from you too.
PURPOSE OF BONDING THRU BOOKS - Each year thousands of people - educators, concerned parents, community leaders, authors, poets and publishers - devote their time and resources to presenting the reader with great books! However, too many outstanding books do not get the attention and reader support that they deserve. We want to help with this state of affairs, so we encourage readers to purchase books to give as gifts 365 days a year.
