How to deal with burnout. With Ami Foster. Episode 94
Jun 04, 2024 Episode 94

Burnout affects many professionals in healthcare. In this episode, Ami Foster and I discuss how to spot when you are in the middle of it, and what can be done about it. Better than dealing with burnout would be prevention. We talk about how as doctors we are constantly on sympathetic system over-drive, but actually we need to invest in our wellbeing for the sake of the future including our own career success and longevity. The reality is that the world will always want more from us, so it is for us to put in some boundaries and strategies to help set us up for short-term and long-term success.  It's not selfish to practice self-care, and you can be both patient focused and interested in your own wellbeing.
