Educational Need

Healthcare providers may celebrate victories with one patient and go on to deliver devastating news to another. Therefore, it is no surprise that practicing medicine can take an intense emotional toll on providers, affecting clinical performance and patient care. Countless internal and external factors may influence the emotional state of a healthcare provider, and providers must acknowledge their emotions and have the competence to take appropriate measures to protect themselves and their patients.

Target Audience

DMU faculty, staff, students, residents, and the medical community.

Objectives

  • Discuss emotional responses in medicine and throughout medical training.
  • Describe the myriad of ways these emotional responses can be triggered while working as physicians.
  • Recognize personal emotional responses and how they can impact academic performance as well as patient care.
  • Describe potential methods to reduce burnout, including improving work-life balance, self-efficacy, self-regulation, and resiliency.
