Whether we realize it or not, the stories we witness and the narratives we are privileged to co-author give meaning to our work as clinicians. However, stress and burnout prevent many from connecting with these stories. This session will provide the unique perspectives of three different speakers who will discuss storytelling, the “4Rs” (reflection, relationships, resourcefulness, and resilience), and fiscal health. From them, you will learn preemptive approaches for managing stress and promoting resilience as well as strategies to obtain non-medical income streams that could put you in position for a more optimal work-life balance. With these tools, you may find more bandwidth to engage with the stories of your patients and restore satisfaction in your work. 

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize that moral injury is highly prevalent in health care workers and respond to colleagues suffering from moral injury with empathy
  • Use narrative-based metaphors to discuss goals-of-care with patients
  • Describe strategies for reducing stress and cultivating resilience for mitigating burnout, fostering wellbeing, and promoting humanistic practices within patient care, education, and leadership
  • Describe the “4R toolkit” of reflection, relationships, resourcefulness, and resilience for enhancing wellbeing, flourishing, and vitality at work and in life
  • Look beyond conventional clinical practice to supplement your income and appreciate your potential to develop new skills for alternative careers as a medical professional
