It’s a pharmacist’s perspective on healthcare from Christina Fontana on this episode of the Perspectives on Healthcare podcast with Rob Oliver. Originally from Long Island New York, Christina Fontana is now based in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. A member of the Millennial Generation (Generation Y,) she uses her education and training in pharmaceutical to provide a more holistic model of care for the people she serves.
Here are 3 things that stood out as Christina Fontana gave us a pharmacist’s perspective on healthcare:
- Patients represent more than a diagnosis, their needs must be met on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level. Additionally, it is important to address root causes and not merely symptoms.
- Quality healthcare is heart centered and includes empathy, understanding, and compassion.
- Trauma-Informed care considers patients’ past experiences and is sensitive to their psychological and physiological responses to stress.
