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.
