Collaboration among your care team
The Mind-Body Medicine Department at CTCA at Eastern Regional Medical Center is completely integrated with the other clinical areas. In addition to meeting with each other each day to discuss your care, the mind-body team collaborates regularly with the other members of your care team at Eastern. The goal is to support your whole being.
In addition, three times a week, the mind-body team attends "endorsement" meetings with all the clinical disciplines. In these meetings, your mind-body therapist can consult with your doctors to determine appropriate interventions. For instance, your care team may distinguish a medical condition that is physiological in nature from a true mood disturbance.
The mind-body team also participates in “Comfort Rounds” two times a week for inpatients. During these visits, mind-body therapists join with your other CAM clinicians and support staff to discuss your physical, emotional, spiritual, financial, or other concerns.
