Many times, we can get the impression that the Health Guardian avoids the rest of the medical world. In truth, it’s just the opposite. As a member of the Primary Care Team, the Health Guardian must maintain dialogue with other professionals. They should collaborate with others, and of course stay current by reading accepted literature. But, accessing data is one thing. Creating dialogue on the data is something entirely different and more productive when it comes to change and health improvement. Dialogue should aim for a joint understanding of health problems. Dialogue is a means by which Health Guardians, team members, peers at large, and loved ones can inform each other of their assumptions and their diagnoses.
Continually increasing health standards is key to pathology prevention, addressing chronic illness, increasing self-reliance, and quality of life. Of course, this implies that the Health Guardian is aware what the current standard is, and where the constraint to health improvement is. Addressing a health issue that isn’t the current constraint will produce no observable result. Also, the increased health expectations create dissatisfaction with the current level of living. As you may or may not have heard, change and health transition management involves many factors and is no small task. But the Health Guardian must begin somewhere, do what they can now, and continually research and implement this practice.
