Interviews

Casey FM

Sharee Spoke with Henry Grossek on Casey FM recently.

The 2 part series was originally aired on the Viewpoints Program, Friday 3 November.  Sharee discusses the release of her new book The Thriving Doctor – how to be more balanced and fulfilled working in medicineThe Thriving Doctor seeks to help doctors build the skills they need to take better care of themselves and each other. It also reminds those who employ and work with doctors that they are an incredibly valuable resource that we need to care for. It might even help the public understand what it is like to work as a doctor.

“If we do not do something to support our doctors, the healthcare system will fall over. Doctors cannot continue to work as they do, nor should we expect them to”. “We need a paradigm shift” she says. “Instead of patients first we need to be thinking about safety first so we can get some balance back into our healthcare system. Burning out doctors and developing systems that prevent them from having a life outside of medicine is unsustainable.

NGrowth

Sharee discusses Leadership And Human Connection – The Power of Mindfulness with Jim Hotaling on Iron Sharpens Iron podcast.

Mindfulness is a particular way of paying attention, moment-to-moment without the constant critical commentary of our thinking brain.  Having more mindfulness in our way of “being” allows us to grow our focus and attentional capacity.

Key leadership takeaways:

  • Build your skills to manage stress while you work in a complex environment.
  • Grow your people skills and improving your self-care
  • Focus on mindfulness, unconscious bias, deep listening, and the power of maintaining empathy, expanding compassion, preventing burnout.

Doctor Wellbeing needs to be a Priority

Decision makers in healthcare organisations will find this webinar useful in terms of their employees’ health and that of the organisation.

Compassion & Mindfulness

Compassion and mindfulness are innate but the world of medicine has many ways to leave you bereft of them both. Constant technical training and updates, artificial intelligence, electronic medical records, evidence based practice, lack of time, cognitive and emotional load, the juggle of work-life balance are just some of the ways the system can deplete you.

In this webinar we will pause long enough to review the evidence for human connection, self compassion and mindfulness practice. Review the current evidence for the benefits of these practices to patients and providers and take away some practical ways you can integrate them into your medical world of work.
