Developing knowledge and understanding of the proposed temporal model of care. This will support health care professionals to focus their conversations on what is important to the person. This may be their lived-through past, their experienced present, or their anticipated future.

I recently completed a 4-session course with Denise Harris; I can tell you it was extremely worthwhile. She and I have been doing essentially the same interventions with MND patients, but she had it organized and structured in a way that was highly beneficial. She also provided new insights which will facilitate improved interactions with my patients. Her articles are invaluable for continuing in this field. It is rare to find someone with such an understanding of the needs of these patients and I expect to maintain an ongoing relationship with her.
