May 26, 2022

“If a physician is empowered to turn to their highest strengths, whatever they are, if it’s teamwork or creativity, they are empowered to be themselves in their practice, which can kind of manage burnout too. Because burnout can happen if we’re completely pushing down all of the qualities that uplift us and energize us naturally. - Ryan M. Niemiec, Psy.D.

For today’s episode, Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer welcomes psychologist, Dr. Ryan Niemiec. Dr. Niemiec is a leading international figure in character strengths and is the Education Director of the VIA Institute on Character. So what are character strengths?

171: What Healthcare Organizations Need To Do To Keep Their Doctors

May 16, 2022

“The shifts that they needed to make were not as hard as their overwhelmed and burned out brain was telling them it was going to be. They just needed support and a new way of thinking and some new ideas to walk them through the process when they were at that level of feeling so overwhelmed and burned out.”- Master Certified Life Coach Jill Farmer 

In today’s episode, Hosts Dr. Jen Barna and Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer come together to discuss the overwhelm and burnout that is plaguing the healthcare industry and what healthcare organizations can do to keep their devoted doctors, nurses, PA’s and care team staff from leaving the practice of medicine. 

 

At DocWorking, our mission is to provide critical ongoing coaching and community support to the whole care team. We specialize in providing dynamic coaching by an experienced team, to guide each member of the healthcare team to design a life based around what they value most and to accelerate a path to get there.

Our coaching, community, courses and other tools help to protect and strengthen resilience, to retrain the brain to deal with stress in the heat of the moment, and to make the most of our most limited asset: time. We understand the unique challenges you face and our goal is to support you in your life changing work while helping you to prioritize your dreams and ambitions.

We hope this episode will help you to recognize and claim joy multiple times each day, and feel the freedom in contentment.

168: Battling False Science: How Physicians Can Help Patients Discover the Truth with Dr. Mark Hoofnagle

May 5, 2022

“Real experts are wrong and will admit that they’re wrong. Actually one of the ways that you can identify an expert is, you can search them admitting to being wrong at some point in time. Because, you know, people who are never wrong aren’t experts, they’re jerks.” - Dr. Mark Hoofnagle 

In episode 168, Master Certified Coach Jill Farmer welcomes Dr. Mark Hoofnagle to the podcast. Dr. Hoofnagle is assistant professor of surgery in the section of Acute Critical Care Surgery at the Washington University in St Louis. He has been writing about critical thinking and science denialism since 2007. In this episode, he explains the many ways that the public is duped by misinformation, why people are so susceptible to misinformation and what, as doctors, we can do when our patients believe something other than the correct science. He also gives us tips for meaningful communication with patients or anyone in our lives who may be misinformed.

Mark Hoofnagle MD/PhD trained at University of Virginia School of Medicine for medical school, University of Maryland Medical Center for General Surgery and University of Pennsylvania for Trauma and critical care and is now assistant professor of surgery in the section of Acute Critical Care Surgery at the Washington University in St Louis. He researches Deep Venous Thrombosis in trauma and gun violence at Washington University, and has written about critical thinking and denialism since 2007. His essay on “What is Denialism” on Scienceblogs from 2007 created framework for understanding the public dissemination of anti-science narratives, has been cited in the International Journal of Public Health and Nature, and provides context for understanding current disinformation and misinformation campaigns.

166: A New Way for Physicians To Lower Stress Starting Today with Dr. Zibin Guo

April 28, 2022

“Knowing your vulnerabilities makes you able to yield before breaking down, so that is the whole idea of Tai Chi.” - Dr. Zibin Guo

For episode 166, Master Certified Coach, Jill Farmer welcomes Dr. Zibin Guo to the podcast! Dr. Zibin Guo is a professor in medical anthropology at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and a Tai Chi Chuan Master. He specializes in Applied Medical Anthropology with a focus on applying traditional healing knowledge to develop intervention programs to promote physical and psychological well-being among vulnerable populations. In this episode, he shares about the benefits of Tai Chi for our busy physician audience. As he mentions in the podcast, you can experience the benefits of Tai Chi without dedicating a bunch of time or learning any difficult exercise regimens. He suggests learning two Tai Chi movements and integrating their practice into your life. Tune in to this episode to learn the amazing benefits of Tai Chi and how it can help you. 

Dr. Zibin Guo is a professor in medical anthropology at the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and a Tai Chi Chuan Master. He specializes in Applied Medical Anthropology with a focus on applying traditional healing knowledge to develop intervention programs to promote physical and psychological well-being among vulnerable populations. 

 

In 2005, Dr. Guo developed a form of wheelchair Tai Chi Chuan (TCC) program making a traditional healing/martial art accessible to people with ambulatory limitations. A key feature of this innovative program is that it integrates wheelchair motions with the flowing movements of TCC to transform the wheelchair from an assistive device to a tool of empowerment and artistic expression. Dr. Guo’s program was debuted at the 2008 Paralympics.  

 

Since 2016, funded by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, Dr. Guo has been implementing the Adaptive Tai Chi for Veterans program across the country. As of September 2021, Dr. Guo and his team have provided the training to over 600 VA healthcare providers at more than 80 VA Medical Centers/facilities across the United States and territory
