Providers

Help is on the way: Join us Wednesday!

October 22, 2022

Friends,

About 4 times per year I offer a free workshop to our community. This fall’s workshop is happening tomorrow, Wednesday, October 19th, 2022 at 6 pm PST. The workshop, We’re Really NOT OK: 5 Steps to Address OverwhelmToday, is specifically for physicians, NP’s, PA’s, nurses, and BHC’s. Here’s what we’re going to address:

  • Differentiating between stress and overwhelm — it’s a game changer!
  • Understanding the compounding stressors that have contributed to burnout 
  • Breaking down factors of medical complexity in patients 
  • WHAT TO DO with ourselves 

Friends, this is what a physician said to me last month:

It’s just really hard right now. Patients are angry. People are tired of waiting. I’m tired. We’re all still wearing masks all day and struggling with staffing and rescheduling people all the time. And now, our patients are sicker b/c of delayed care and they’re so complicated. It’s like there’s this massive pile up of all of the unmet mental health needs for everyone. SIGH. I just don’t know what to do. This all feels like so much. 

She was definitely feeling overwhelmed. Is everything feeling heavier right now?  

Pre-pandemic physicians and healthcare providers were ALREADY overwhelmed to the point of burnout. Add in medical misinformation, vaccine hesitancy, vicarious trauma from loss, and the moral injury of this constant feeling…COULD I BE DOING MORE? 

It’s too much.   

Please join us for an evening discussion about complexity in the medical world right now. In our one-hour workshop, we’ll explore factors that have led to this feeling of overwhelm, why patients are so darn complex right now, and what to do about this before we’re all burned out. 

And we’re going to dive deep into what I really think is going on right now: A TRAUMA RESPONSE. 

But wait, before you run away…take a deep breath. You’re not alone. Other physicians and healthcare professionals are already saying, “Yeah, if I’m honest, that’s me right now.” So, please don’t miss this opportunity to be in community with other professionals. 

If I’m good at anything it’s tools – that’s where the magic happens. A lot of people can tell you WHAT is going on…I’m going to share with you WHAT TO DO with all of this uncertainty.  

Won’t you join me? Oh, and a small gaggle of your peers! 

See you soon! 

And I know what you’re thinking…I don’t have time for this – None of us have extra time right now. We have to make it by focusing on being in community and saying “YES” to help and support right now. This is for you. See you soon.

With compassion,

Dr. Amy
