We view seeking balance and a hand up when needed as a strength, not a weakness! At Boston Children’s Hospital’s Department of Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain medicine we recognize the rigors, demands and stressors of a life dedicated to the care of sick children. Our approach to wellness and burnout prevention hinges on three major foci; Education, Peer Support and Skills Building.
For our trainees, support is facilitated via a novel bridge between our robust Quality Improvement initiatives and our Advisor system, providing a catch net for trainees exposed to adverse outcomes. In order to establish life-long patterns conducive to a balanced, mindful and fulfilling career, we also meet monthly with our fellows to explore the personal and emotional impact of perioperative events and interactions, and to focus more heavily on the positive aspects of the day to day practice of medicine.
We believe that happy and balanced clinicians are more humanistic and effective clinicians, and we want to support that!
