How corporations and other workplaces can / should be treating people with serious illness or caretakers. What is the patient experience like, what are the elements of treatment, how can the workplace adapt so that the employee can feel engaged and appreciated at work, etc.
I've been a social worker by training ... counseled many through illness, ran a hospice. Now, I work to promote the idea that illness at work Should be discussed openly. "Patients" want to be treated as "whole" human beings who just happen to have an illness ... NOT as just people who are sick.
My company is The ReGeneration Group. I founded it and I am it. As stated above, I speak at conferences, conventions and inside corporations. My overall focus is on companies re-generating, re-purposing, re-inventing. This newest phase falls under that umbrella. I also coach at the executive level -- turning managers into leaders ... creating workplace environments that honor and appreciate their employees.
To offer information as an advocate for patients and also to meet corporate level individuals that would be interested in having me involved with transforming their company's conversation about illness and caregiving in the workplace.
