    66. Cooking = Rehab with Derek Miles

    What if we told you one of the ultimate keys to growing as a clinician could be found from the field of…Cooking?
     
    Today, we are joined by one of the BIGGEST influences on the Level Up and CALU community, Derek Miles.
     
    Derek is one of those people that is loaded with wisdom, and his unique background in cooking provides some ripe opportunities for analogies and incredible lessons that transcend the kitchen and take us into the clinic.
     
    While he is famous for his cut rate IG series “cooking with adhesions,” this discussion is focused on a totally different set of key messages to be gleaned from the culinary field.
     
    I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation, and think you will too! So give this episode a listen and make sure you are following Derek (@derek_barbellmedicine)Please be sure to give our podcast a rating if you find it helpful, and share it around!

    In this special episode of the clin ed series, we bring you the audio cast of a free lecture recorded and housed on our CALU YouTube.
    This presentation was originally created for a local DPT program, but it serves as the perfect piece for this aspect of our clin ed curriculum.
    In this podcast you will:
    Appreciate the inherent uncertainty embedded in clinical care. Understand why embracing uncertainty allows for more authentic communication skills and clinical confidence. Explore how to cultivate humility and why this is critical for doctor-patient relationships and meaningful professional development. We hope that after listening to this, you will have more guidance, direction, and confidence with your clinical communication skills and critical thinking!

    64. Clin Ed Series: Reconciling and Establishing a Rock Solid Orthopedic Foundation

    Have you ever felt:
    The things you learned in school don't matter? Paralyzed by the nocebo overlords on how to communicate exam findings in a way that doesn't nocebo your patients? Well then, this episode is most definitely for you. But this episode will benefit anyone who is dedicated to growing as a clinician and looking to provide best care.
    In this next portion of the clin-ed series, we take some time to discuss one of the most critical elements of being a competent clinician AND communicator, which is....having a rock solid orthopedic foundation!
    The problem is, this foundation absolutely needs to be broadened and reconciled if you really want to provide that A1 care!!!
    What we learn is school is so important, but if we leave it at that, it is often incomplete, and has the potential to be harmful to our patients.
    In this episode we clarify more on:
    New Grad Nihilism Crisis aka “nothing matters” phase Differential Diagnosis Prep Work informing solid history taking “The Diagnosis Dilemma" and the importance of context when discussing exam findings. The Power of Prognosis  How to communicate "uncertainty" with conviction How to expand and reconcile a rock solid orthopedic foundation. ____________________________________________________________
