Episode 37: Charting Better with Dr. Sarah Smith Special Guest

Welcome to the Sustainable Clinical Medicine Podcast! In this episode, titled "Charting Better with Dr. Sarah Smith Special Guest" I have something a little different for you. I wanted to share with you a recent conversation I had with Dr. Megan Melo on her podcast, Ending Physician Overwhelm. It is a conversation that can help you in your journey towards sustainable clinical medicine. We dive into the world of physician overwhelm and the importance of redesigning our clinical days for a more sustainable approach.

This episode provides valuable insights and practical strategies to help physicians and advanced practice providers chart better and create sustainable clinical days.

Here are 3 key takeaways from our discussion:

1️⃣   The never-ending cycle of charting and paperwork can lead to immense overwhelm and burnout for physicians. It's important to acknowledge the impact it has on both our professional and personal lives.

2️⃣   I discovered that coming into work on Sundays, as suggested by many mentors, was not a sustainable solution. It was time to question the status quo and find a better way to navigate the charting process.

3️⃣   By building new habits and utilizing effective strategies, I was able to redesign my clinical day and create more time for myself and my loved ones. It's possible to have a fulfilling career in medicine without sacrificing our personal lives.

Join us as we uncover the secrets to ending physician overwhelm and finding balance in clinical medicine. Don't miss this enlightening conversation with Dr. Sarah Smith and Dr. Megan Melo.
