Live Well: Physician Resiliency in the Face of Patient Death

Event Time: Wednesday April 26, 2017 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Justin Jordan MD, MPH
Description: As neurologists, while specific vulnerability differs by subspecialty, death is an inescapable part of caring for patients. In order to sustain quality and empathy in patient care, while simultaneously protecting one's personal health and sense of worth, neurologists must be intentional in their efforts to preserve their own wellness and resiliency; critical to this balance are the avoidance of both professional burnout and compassion fatigue.  In this proposed 30-minute discussion, I intend to provide a primer for neurologists on providing empathy to patients in a self-preserving manner, strategies for coping with professional loss without depersonalization, and ultimately prioritizing physician wellness as well as patient wellness.
