New Podcast Episode: System Change Starts with You!

In this week's episode, I talk to Dr. Joan Chan about change within your practice. Dr. Chan shares that system change starts with you, even the smallest changes you make will have a ripple effect. Dr. Chan talks about how changes that you make within your practice serve your patients as well. Her message is that you are not responsible for your patients' thoughts, feelings, actions, or even outcomes. We offer, we influence, and we support but ultimately, we must understand what is not under our control. This is more empowering for the patient AND you!

Meet Dr. Joan Chan

Joan Chan is a mother of two sons, a wife, a superfan of Ru-Paul's Drag Race, and a family physician of a thousand patients in Guelph, ON. She also serves her medical community as a restorative medical educator, using courses, workshops, and coaching to facilitate the reconnection of medical practitioners with their humanity. She loves working with burnt-out clinicians to build sustainable and even enjoyable experiences of medical practice - and believes this is the key to saving our healthcare system as a whole.
