Welcome to the second episode of my new podcast, Do Yourself No Harm.
I’m Dr Claire Ashley, and I am a GP, burnout survivor and mental health advocate. For today’s episode I discuss the importance of compassion and humanism in medicine with Dr Laura Vater, a US based oncologist.
Humanism and compassion in medicine is not just about improving patient care and our relationship with patients, it’s also about enhancing and improving the clinician experience, and improving recruitment and retention. In this podcast we also talk about how COVID has changed our jobs, how the impact of sleep deprivation and lack of physical and mental rest affects us, and we also discuss the impact of poor staffing and issues with recruitment and retention. Dr Vater also shares her SMILE scale, which is an evidence based tool to help us prioritise our physical and mental health.
