How do we recognize, acknowledge, and heal burnout, especially in healthcare?
Mamta Gautam, MD and psychiatrist to health professionals, has seen the Covid pandemic first hand through the eyes of the medical professionals she serves. The healthcare system, like our world, has been called VUCA – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous. For many of us, and particularly healthcare professionals, and especially women among them, this environment has created enormous burnout. Dr. Gautam describes the three stages of burnout and how to recognize them in oneself and others. She discusses her journey to creating wellness programs for doctors, as a leader in the field, and caps off the show with her 5 C’s of resilience – the steps we can take from burnout to joy, by reframing what we do have control over. We are not victims of our environment, but rather have control over our emotions, interpretations and actions, even in what seems like an uncontrollable situation. Visit https://peakmd.ca.
