  • Physician Wellness: What you can do for yourself, medicine, and more

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 10/21/2021 at 6:15 PM (PDT)

    “Never waste a good crisis” is a sensible, if sobering, bit of advice about an optimum time to make important changes. What changes would you like to make? How can you take advantage of actual opportunities offered by COVID, climate change, racial and political tensions, and other urgencies?

    Friday, October 21, 2021 | 6:15 to 7:30 PM
    Online Seminar | Free to all | CME Available 

    Recording will be available following the meeting

    We will start with the core — you — and then expand. You will have time to think about, your attitudes, the way you treat yourself and others, how you spend your time, your purpose, and resilience. Then we will look at the bigger picture: medicine as a profession at a crossroads and how you might contribute to its good future. An even bigger picture — your neighborhood and our country — will be next, as we consider major topics of concern such as ways to bridge differences, analyze information, and assure fairness. Join in this conversation about taking advantage of adversity.

    Learning Objectives:
    • Identify current professional, societal and personal issues that must be addressed to maintain good health for physicians and patients.
    • Employ effective ways to find calm and therefore give opportunities to think, plan and make good decisions about patient’s and personal challenges.
    • Identify an array of approaches to and solutions to frustrating or troubling concerns about the care of patients and self.

    Recorded October 29, 2020

    Knowledge of past series is not needed to participate in upcoming sessions. Part 1-3 is now available on-demand in the Learning Center, see below for further information.

    The situations we face in our communities have impacted us all on a personal level. We are learning to manage toxic stress, thinking more about self-care, and reacting with inherent resilience. And many of us are working to manage these same issues in the workplace as leaders - whether that is in a small practice or a large health system. How we communicate with others and how we employ trauma informed practices within those work environments has impact - on us, on those we work with and on the people we serve. Now more than ever, we need a dialogue about trauma informed systems: how we can drive culture change in health care settings to ensure that real healing can occur on all levels.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Re-examine the neuro-biology of trauma and how it impacts interpersonal communication
    • Consider the role of Adverse Community Experiences and how they can exacerbate individual experiences of trauma
    • Think about trauma informed communication where power plays a role
    • Examine guidelines for communication and behaviors for leaders and systems that are trauma-informed (i.e. Safety and Stability)
