February 2020 newsUpdate - Issue 124

 

Welcome to our February NewsUpdate

As February is traditionally the month of love, I’ve been contemplating this theme – not the romantic expressions of St Valentine’s Day and Leap Year marriage proposals – but on the themes of care, compassion, valuing the individual and providing person-centred care, which are so integral to complementary therapies. I’d like to take this opportunity acknowledge the great care that our CNHC Registrants provide to the public, as well as their continuing commitment to Stand Up for Standards.

Please do take some time to check the many volunteering and job opportunities currently advertised on our website for CNHC Registrants at hospitals, hospices and other organisations. These show the demand for complementary therapies and the recognition of the positive impact such interventions make on people’s lives.

This month CNHC exhibited at the Integrated care for people with multiple long-term conditions event at the King’s Fund. Staff attending were both moved and inspired by hearing first-hand accounts of patients’ lived experiences of multiple long-term conditions. While Social Prescribing and other group-based interventions within communities, typically provided by the voluntary sector, are already becoming part of the solution, my hope is that the next steps are to recognise the benefits to the public and integrate 1-to-1 interventions such as those provided by complementary therapies into mainstream healthcare provision.

Sugar Awareness Week blog post

 

 

For Sugar Awareness Week, one of our CHNC Local Champions who is a Nutritional Therapist, Nathalie Gudgeon, wrote a blog post offering tips on cutting down on children’s sugar intake. This has proved very popular with our audiences on social media, particularly as it contained a delicious recipe for chocolate energy balls.

CNHC exhibit at the Kings Fund

 

 

On 4 February CNHC’s CEO, Margaret Coats, and Communication Manager, Sharon Robinson, exhibited at the Integrated care for people with multiple long-term conditions event at the King’s Fund. There was an opportunity to network with health and social care commissioners, service providers, charities, and people with experience of long-term multiple conditions.

The King’s Fund did a fantastic job of putting patients’ voices at the centre of their event and presenting the great work done by the Taskforce on Multiple Conditions, a cross-sector partnership between the Richmond Group of Charities, the Royal College of General Practitioners and Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity. The Taskforce was set up to examine the nature and scale of the challenge of people living with multiple condition, how it affects people’s lives and why the system struggles to respond.

CNHC Local Champion appears on BBC 2’s Trust Me, I'm a Doctor

CNHC Local Champion Vidhi Sadana can be seen delivering Yoga Therapy to patients with cardiovascular conditions and anxiety in Series 9, episode 5 of BBC 2’s Trust Me, I'm a Doctor.

Broadcast on 12 February, the programme saw Dr Michael Mosley run an experiment to discover the effect of yoga on blood pressure. Vidhi collaborated with the BBC and the London School of Topical Medicine and Hygiene and the results showed that gentle yoga over a period of one month lowered blood pressure as much as vigorous exercise, with added benefits for mental health.
