ACCME 2019: Spring Forward

Published Date

>>SHANAFELT: Interaction with the amazing altruistic people in the field has always been one of the things in the fabric of our professions that have held us together. The people at your table with you are amazing, dedicated, hardworking, committed individuals, and they remind you of why we do this work. This can actually be an energizing force that reconnects people to meaning, reconnects them to team, builds community, and improves the environment.

>>SAXBERG: What do you expect people to decide and do differently? What question will I change my behavior based on the answer to it?

>>LOVELL: And there is something, there are lots of things that we can do, especially all of you in this room. No matter who we are, what we do, what our profession is, it doesn't really matter. We all can play a role in helping to stem this crisis.

>>LEIFMAN: Because we're working together to make structural change, and that's what it's going to take. If we continue to stay in our own lanes, in our own silos and just do our own jobs, nothing is going to change with this issue.

>>SHANAFELT: And CME can be part of the solution. All of you will be the ones who imagine what that really could look like and make it real. I think it's a journey, and that's the challenge before us.
