A short post this afternoon. We have been really busy tackling the complex, mind-boggling concepts being taught to us during the haematology lecture series. Our Haem and Oncology block is pretty difficult and no doubt lots of my peers and myself are feeling the pressure and stress.
This is a timely reminder to look after each other and ourself and to provide assistance to our mates in distress.
My thinking stemmed from a recent podcast that I listened from ABC Radio about mental health and doctors. I encourage you all to listen (a bit of change from our usual podcast). Let us know what you think and how you feel medicine is affecting your physical and mental health. If you are at all distressed talk to your peers or seek professional help.
You can listen to the podcast – Doctors in Distress
