Stories of Health for Life: Guided Imagery
Well, we've reached another milestone: the VA is now officially including guided imagery as a laudable practice for vets, after decades of VA patients and line practitioners using it anyway. (Over 90 VA hospitals and Vet Centers have been ordering guided imagery from Health Journeys since the early 90s. They always knew it worked, it was inexpensive, and it was easy to use - especially for vets who had trouble coming in for appointments.)
So, let's hear it for the VHA Office of Patient Experience and Cultural Transformation, for stepping up and acknowledging what's been going on anyway. The giant wheels of big bureaucracies turn slowly, but we're delighted they move at all.
