Life isn’t easy—especially in healthcare. Burnout is a huge problem that has rightfully received a lot of attention. But what’s the solution?
Resilience is an antidote to burnout. It’s the approach the U.S. military takes when deploying troops to stressful, unpredictable and often dangerous circumstances.
Today, I’ll be discussing resilience at the Upper Midwest Oncology Education Network’s annual meeting. In a novel twist, we assessed attendees’s resilience in the weeks preceding the conference and will be challenging them to improve their resilience in the months that follow.
You can find my associated PowerPoint here.
Late-breaking news: Burnout in oncology pharmacists has been studied. Pharmacists had the highest rate of burnout—53%—in a large cohort that also included physicians, advanced practice providers and nurses.
Halloween means costumes, candy and the MARRCH Annual Conference!
This year, I’m presenting on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) for addiction. You can find my PowerPoint here. REBT connects well with SMART Recovery, the mutual help method/community.
Please also see the REBT Self-Help Form, which was a critical piece in my presentation.
I’m a long-time contributing editor to Today’s Hospitalist. My “beat” involves numbers—dollars, RVUs, burnout—basically anything that can be measured.
I considered a simple bedside calculator that predicts opioid overdose in my October 2017 commentary. Overdose risk is generally much higher than providers think because of ubiquitous risk factors like concomitant antidepressant use.
Readers who want to go deeper can find primary literature here, here and here.
Minnesota Monthly recently named me a “Top Doctor” in the specialty of Addiction Medicine. The list appeared in the October print issue and online. I’ve been recognized annually since 2014.
