increased use of cell phones as families’ only phone and the use of telehealth, you could easily be practicing out of your state of license authority on any given call or email. Remember YOU are responsible for your own practice. As wonderful as technology can be for those of us in active practice, let us also be mindful of those without access to these resources, particularly as we care for our elders. (This is especially important if they do not use a computer or do not have a network of computer literate/supportive family and friends that can assist them.) Take the time to ensure they have important phone numbers and printouts of their hospital or clinic course, but also – and most importantly – make sure that they know how to find and read each handout. I have had patients pick up their drugs at major pharmacies and, even though the drug information was stapled to their bag, they did not know to read the information, nor did they understand what drugs they had, nor why they needed to take them! I hope you will continue to utilize technology and exercise your political power to show the importance of case management in all areas of healthcare. When you act as the expert, you are seen as the expert. Impart your daily learning not only to the clients and caregivers, but to all those you meet along the way. Take the time to remember to use your gift of knowledge to continue to make our world a better place! ■ REFERENCES 1. Wordiq. www.wordiq.com/definition/Politics 2.
