The Human Side of Fear

Type: 
Article
Description: 

The article details why most people fear procedures, i.e. colonoscopy, endoscopy and other invasive diagnostic tests. As the author, I believe that fear is a significant barrier that can influence outsomes. If a patient is fearful and and has a "bad" experience with the procedure, then the patient will not likely return any time soon for following-up testing. I outline the signs and symptoms of fear so that medical professionals can identify those people who are at risk, and intervene to prevent a "bad" outcome for the patient.

In the Final Analysis: More Wisdom From People Who Have Faced Death

Type: 
Article
Description: 

Seventeen adults who experienced a life-threatening situation were interviewed to ascertain what they had learned about life from their confrontation with death. Interview questions focused on participants' philosophies of life, their personal regrets, and priorities, and their advice to others. Interviews were analyzed using qualitative grounded theory and discovery-oriented techniques. Among the most common themes, the participants advocated less materialism, more spirituality, and more caring for and serving of others. After their confrontation with death they worried less about mundane issues and became more optimistic about the future of humankind. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
