Want to give your patients something fun to dream about that also helps with self-care management?
Benefits to Your Patients
Providing your patients with something of value that they need—a journal to help them organize their own self-care—may lead to better health outcomes
The art project will make it more likely that your patients will want to learn self-care techniques... because it's fun!
Creative expression is a powerful contribution to the healing process
Art can offer a reprieve from any overwhelming emotions associated with illness and help reduce stress
The art project is easy to manage in-house with no messy art supplies—you'll just need colored pencils and the journals
Cost effective; your art dollars will reach more patients and patients can participate by following art prompts on each page instead of needing a lesson from an instructor
The journal allows patients to participate in the art project in their own time, when they are ready (versus asking patients to leave their room to go to a specific location at a specific time to create art or having an art instructor come into their room at a time when they might not be feeling up to it)
Patients can feel connected to others who are going through similar experiences by looking at artwork on this website
The art project is beneficial for isolated patients and can help reduce germ exposure (because of less time spent in group art events)
You'll have solid participation numbers for end-of-the-year assessments (the number of books you purchase = your direct reach). If you also hang artwork on your walls or post on your websites/social media, more people will be inspired indirectly.
Creative self-care management is a simple solution that may lead to better health outcomes.
