Physicians Heal Thyself – How to Live Your Life in Balance, Mind, Body & Spirit and Prevent Burnout

1-hour CME conference or ½ Day to 1 Day CME Workshop

Overview

About 2 out of 3 physicians practicing medicine and 3 out of 4 medical students and residents in training are burned out. Physicians have the highest rate of suicide than the general population.

In order to be a better healer and avoid burnout, there has to be a perfect balance between the mind, body and spirit. The ultimate success of any given treatment will depend on the effectiveness of the joint effort between the healer and the patient. This includes the healer’s personal health and the patient’s receptivity. Otherwise, it will be detrimental to both.

The aim of this course is to provide healers with the knowledge, skills and the necessary tools to assist them on the path to self-healing and actualization in order to decrease and prevent the risk of burnout.

Integrative Healing Techniques for the Busy Practitioner: How to Prevent Burnout and Increase Patients’ Satisfaction and Decrease Malpractice Claims.

½ Day to 1 Day CME Workshop

Overview

Physicians are burning out because they can’t provide the quality of care they want to. Patients also are fed up and demanding better care and personal attention. They are tired of dealing with a healthcare provider who is too busy staring at the computer and writing, while barely acknowledging their suffering and need for human connection. 

Studies have found it is not the amount of time spent with patients but the quality of that time which leads to their feeling validated and understood– many people are sick because they are longing for human touch.

Many conditions also require testing such as blood work, x-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, MRI or other modalities. Taking the time to schedule these appointments can be time-consuming while the patient continues to suffer. 

Audience

This course is designed for physicians, NPs, and PAs in all settings.

 Course Objective

The purpose of this presentation is to provide healthcare providers with the knowledge they need to learn about alternative and complementary therapies, how to integrate them into their treatment plans, and provide hands-on care their patients are yearning for.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the course, providers should be able to:

  • Have a complete understanding of the following modalities:
    • Healing touch therapy
    • Guided imagery
    • Visualization
    • Tapping
    • Affirmations
    • Mindful breathing exercises
  • How to use specific modalities to alleviate patient suffering from conditions such as stress, headaches, anxiety, panic attacks, irregular heartbeat, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, chronic pain, gynecological issues, autoimmune conditions, cancer, etc.
