Editorial: Wellness and resilience: Beyond buzzwords and BS
A friend recently quit after 25 years working in healthcare. His parting words were memorable and chilling: “When I started this job I was given a bag for cash and a bag for crap; both bags are now full, so I’m outta here.” This ICU doctor did not know whether to cheer or cringe, but I understood where he was coming from. Hopefully you cannot relate, but I suspect many can. If so, then it’s time for a proper chat. I’ll share a few dark secrets, in the hopes that you feel safe doing the same.
