Update from Ankara, Turkey

Update from Ankara, Turkey

Ankara, Turkey – February 2017

January 2016 – After an initial thought in 2010 and a journey of patience, tolerance, determination, courage and trust, the JF publication Lifting Your Spirits: Seven Tools for Coping with Illness (LYS) is now published in Turkish!

Speech and Language Therapist, Reyhan Hosgor Erguden MSc, who initiated this project, tells us she has shared LYS with members of a book club in Izmir (February 2016) and with hospital personnel, patients and their relatives at Tepecik Training and Research Hospital last May at the invitation of the hospital administrator Prof. Dr. Gokhan Akbulut. She reports that both presentations were greatly appreciated.

Recently, she worked with a young cancer patient and her parents, using exercises from LYS at Medicana Hospital, Ankara, with permission from a nurse, who has now started to use LYS with patients. To encourage and facilitate this, Reyhan has given LYS and its commentaries as a gift to the oncology department.

We hope to hear more on this in due course.

Social Media Survey

Dear All,


Hope you have had an enjoyable summer. 


We are in the process of reviewing the Janki Foundation's social media content, which includes our website. 


Studies have indicated that different healthcare professionals have variable use of social media platforms, and they will make recommendations to patients or colleagues based on their confidence and reliability of information. In the current climate of healthcare crisis and information overload, we would benefit from an understanding on how spirituality-related information is accessed by healthcare professionals. This will enable us to focus our messages, events and outreach. 


We would greatly welcome your valuable thoughts through this survey. It is anonymous and will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 


Thank you.

Best wishes, 

JF Social Media Review Group
