Can Physicians Really Have It All? Work-life Balance in the Modern Era of Medicine | HospitalRecruiting.com

Can Physicians Really Have It All? Work-life Balance in the Modern Era of Medicine | HospitalRecruiting.com | Physician Articles, News, and Humor | Scoop.it
Whether or not physician work-life balance is possible, it is highly coveted. Younger generations of doctors (those 35 years old and younger) and an increasingly female workforce have spearheaded this movement towards balance. Women make up about half of all medical students and residents and many - along with an increasing number of their male colleagues - value raising a family and pursuing other life interests. While older generations accepted that the calling to become a physician would limit other areas of life, and the medical profession overall has a poor record of self-care, times are changing, and this newer generation is looking for a change.

Trick Question: What’s the Answer to Drug Abuse? | by Gerard DeLio, MD

Trick Question: What’s the Answer to Drug Abuse? | by Gerard DeLio, MD | Physician Articles, News, and Humor | Scoop.it
From thousands of years ago to now, we harvested the opium poppy and eventually the morphine molecule to give the LC some competition. The LC tones down the pain signals initiated by injury, but narcotics, when they fill the opioid receptor site's on neurons, block the pain signals from registering at the brain level, and the LC’s response doesn’t even happen.

Why Is EHR Interoperability So Difficult? | HospitalRecruiting.com

Why Is EHR Interoperability So Difficult? | HospitalRecruiting.com | Physician Articles, News, and Humor | Scoop.it
The point of the blame game isn’t to persecute the players, but to understand the dynamics of interoperability issues, in order to create solutions. Of the stakeholders, only policymakers have a clear, strong interest in promoting interoperability. They should ensure that cross-vendor interoperability isn’t prohibitively costly for EHR vendors and providers. Once the business case for interoperability outweighs the business case against it, both vendors and providers can pursue it without great harm to their bottom lines.

What are My Options if I’m Tired of Medicine? | HospitalRecruiting.com

What are My Options if I’m Tired of Medicine? | HospitalRecruiting.com | Physician Articles, News, and Humor | Scoop.it
There are many op-eds stating how you can leave medicine and make almost as much money doing other jobs. I don’t find this to be true at all. Yes, there could be a few jobs that meet the level of income from practicing medicine, but they are few and difficult to get. Be realistic about the loss in income when you leave medicine. Plan ahead for this change. If it were easy to leave medicine and retain the income, a significantly higher percentage would be leaving.

Self-restraint is one of the most-practiced and valuable skills in my repertoire. I stood in the exam room with her, hands in the pockets of my white coat. I was expressionless and silent while she ranted. I did not, (almost-irresistibly) tell her that this was not the behavior of a woman who was ready for motherhood.

While there is not much that can be done to change the work day of a physician — how the provider copes with or responds to these stressful work conditions, can mean the difference between life and death. Maybe that is too extreme. However, what you do on your time off could determine whether you experience burnout or job satisfaction. Making the most of your days off can also contribute to the maintenance of mental stability and the avoidance of a nervous breakdown.

Golden Hoops – Considering the True Costs of MOC and CME | HospitalRecruiting.com

Golden Hoops – Considering the True Costs of MOC and CME | HospitalRecruiting.com | Physician Articles, News, and Humor | Scoop.it
I hold out hope that education requirements for doctors will also adapt and consider the cost of continuous and life-long learning. Expensive doesn't mean better, and the data on the impact of CME requirements and practice competency are lagging. It seems that legislative imperatives and public opinion have found their way into state-mandated education for healthcare professionals. While there may be value, consideration of the real cost for those jumping through these hoops would be appreciated.
