3. Nursing and the power of touch
from By Keith Carlson
From Sept. 3:
Since the early days of nursing, touch has been an intrinsic tool used by nurses throughout the world. From an encouraging hand on a shoulder, to a cool hand on a feverish forehead, to Reiki delivered at the bedside, touch is a hallmark of caring, healing and compassion. Even as technology becomes more central to healthcare and nurses become overwhelmed with tasks, skin-to-skin contact is an art that must remain a central tenet of nursing care.
