Show Notes

This is a very unique episode that is part of 3 part series on recovery from clinical work in medicine. Part 1 is on micro-recovery and is on The Emergency Mind podcast hosted by Dr. Dan Dworkis. In this initial discussion,  Dan, Cheryl, and Andrea explore the what, how, and why behind micro recoveries during clinical work. For instance, how do you know when to take a micro recovery or break? Does it have to involve leaving the floor, or could taking a few deep breaths at your computer be effective?

In part 2, we hop over to Dr. Cheryl Martin's podcast, The Mindful Medic. We discuss meso-recovery, which we define as recoveries that occur after clinical work. This spans in the hours post-shift, and may extend into the few days before another shift.

In part 3, in this week's episode of The Revitalizing Doctor, we explore when to take a longer break, to recover. This spans from vacations to sabbaticals, and we also cover cutting back on clinical work, but not leaving all together.
