Product description

About the Author

Ruth Stella MacLean is a retired registered nurse with a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from Mount Allison University. She is a retired Certified Management Accountant and obtained the designation of Canadian Heath Service Executive before leaving her position as Director of Ambulatory Care at the Moncton Hospital in Moncton N.B. Canada. Among her responsibilities as Director of Ambulatory Care, was the management of a Pain Clinic that dealt with treatment of chronic pain. Ruth Stella MacLean writes from the unique perspective of a person with chronic pain as well as a nurse and hospital manager for over fifteen years. She understands the medical system and how it works. This knowledge helped her manage her pain but did not go far enough in assuring her complete rehabilitation from a life of pain to a life of fulfillment and happiness. Living Successfully With Chronic Pain has real solutions offered by someone who has lived life not only as a healthcare professional managing a pain clinic, but also as a person who has received the best care the medical profession has to offer people with chronic pain. Yet it was not enough. This shortfall between what the medical model has to offer, and what the individual with chronic pain needs, is the focus of this book. She maintains a website for those interested in issues around chronic pain. During her professional life as a hospital director, and later as published author, Ruth Stella MacLean gave speeches, workshops, radio and newspaper interviews, and continues to do speaking engagements and workshops whenever the opportunity arises. She’s a published fiction author under her pseudonym, Stella MacLean. She is presently under contract for two more Super Romance Books to be published by Harlequin.
