Moral injury is often mischaracterized, portrayed as just burnout among physicians. But there’s a lot of more to it. Without understanding the difference between burnout and moral injury, physicians and patients will suffer the consequences of the stress involved in practicing medicine.

Join us on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 to hear from Drs. Wendy Dean and Simon Talbot who will discuss how physicians are impacted adversely by their work thanks to a broken health care system. When physicians first choose their careers, many follow a calling, entering with a desire to help people. But throughout their careers, many physicians experience at least one “constellation of symptoms” in having to continuously navigate multiple competing allegiances in health care that pit against one another the needs of the patient, the constraints of the insurer, the demands of the healthcare system, and the sense of duty instilled during decades of training.

Cocktails at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6:15 p.m. and the presentation at 7:00 p.m.  Guest are welcome ($40 guest fee).  Questions?  Call Lara Knowles at 804-622-8137 or email her at lknowles@ramdocs.org
