Posted by Dike Drummond MD


Date night secrets for the busy physician

Let me ask you a quick question. When was your last quality Date Night? If it was more than two months ago, this post is specifically for you.

One of the key factors in preventing physician burnout is a strong primary relationship with your loved ones. None is as important as your relationship with your spouse/significant other. 

Unfortunately a Date Night is often something that gets left out of our busy weeks. When I train groups of doctors is is not uncommon for half the hands to go up when I ask the question, "How many of you have not had a date night in the last two months." 

Date Nights are a key tool to prevent physician burnout

Here are five Date Night Secrets we teach all of our private coaching clients

Physician burnout, stress and performance - Video Training

The Relationship Between Physician Burnout, Stress and Performance - Video Training

In the Burnout Proof Live Training I always field the question, "Isn't stress a good thing too?". Here's the answer ...

It depends

Stress can motivate or destroy performance. It can drive a physician to do the best for their patients becoming the personification of the Hippocratic Oath ... or leave them curled on the floor in the fetal position too burned out to take another step. It does all of these things depending on where you are on the Stress vs. Performance Curve.

Here is a short video training on the relationship between Physician Burnout, Stress and Performance

LEADERS TAKE NOTE:

Physician EMR Strategy - five ways to get home sooner this week

Posted by Dike Drummond MD

Prevent Physician Burnout with our five-part EMR & Documentation Strategy - Video Training

Any time you survey physicians on the workplace stresses that are causing physician burnout - EMR / EHR and documentation chores will be listed as three of the top five stressors. This happens for obvious reasons.

(Download the EMR Quick Take and Action Plan Here)

 

1) You were taught to diagnose and treat disease and take care of patients - not hunt and peck at a keyboard. You were never meant to be a master of data entry and fancy keystrokes, but somehow this has become a critically important aspect of your job. 

2) You think EMR is a Problem. It is not. It is another example of a Dilemma. Watch this video first to understand this fundamental distinction.

What you need is a Strategy to deal with your own personal EMR and Documentation challenges.

Watch the following video for our five-part EMR Strategy.

Implement any one of these this week and you will be getting home sooner before the weekend.
