GLMS TO HOST WORKSHOP ENCOURAGING JOY IN PRACTICE New Zealand anesthesiologist Robin Youngson, MD, will lead a physician workshop at The Old Medical School Building with his wife, Meredith Youngson, on Tuesday, April 21 at 7 a.m. In honor of the Mayor’s Give a Day Week of Service, GLMS President-Elect, Bob Couch, MD, MBA, joins Denise Puthuff, MD, and the GLMS Foundation Missions Committee in hosting “Rediscovering Joy in the Practice of Medicine,” a free workshop for all GLMS members and their staff who are interested in enhancing the quality of their work. Recent studies have shown that U.S. physicians suffer more burnout than other American professions. Increasingly complex medical practice regulations and administrative burdens have vastly contributed to this negative trend. An editorial published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine reported burnout rates range from 30 to 65 percent across specialties, with the highest rates incurred by physicians in front-line specialties such as emergency medicine and primary care. The Youngsons are co-founders of Hearts in Healthcare and will lead this unique workshop designed to help physicians and their staff resolve conflict, reconnect to a deeper sense of purpose, and rediscover joy in their work. Dr. Youngson is the author of “Time to Care - How to Love Your Patients and Your Job.” He has also served on the World Health Organization’s International Steering Committee for Patient Safety Solutions. GLMS and the GLMS Foundation invites you and your staff to visit The Old Medical School Building on Tuesday, April 21. Join us for a continental breakfast and reconnect with what drew you to the practice of medicine. To RSVP (by April 16), email [email protected] or call 502-736-6366. *Limited to first 125 registrants. Parking available at the downtown YMCA garage, 555 South 2nd Street.
