Extremely well done. Thank you. One of my favorite chapters so far!

C. David B., M.D. -

Agree. Well done. I recently did a talk for WV ACEP about well-being IN the ED. Most wellness talks are about how we can eat, sleep, etc outside the ED. These are crucial but we also need to concentrate our research on what makes us happier AT work. There is a ton of positive psychology (though I caution this literature is also colored by some new age woo woo stuff), social psychology (which I personally believe is the deepest pool for us to learn from), behavioral psychology, and behavioral economics.
My takeaway from years of reading the literature/philosophy and 36 years of practice is to chose your peer group as if your life depends on it, which in many ways it does. We are inherently deeply tribal. Your tribe feeds you or it can drain you. Learn to make your patients part of your tribe as much as possible.

Well said! Tribalism (rightly so) gets a bad rap because it creates a chasm between 'us' and 'them'. The upside of the tribe, as you allude to, is that these are the people who truly understand what you do. There's no need to explain.
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Very meaningful talk! Thanks for this. I’m on my third time listening to this and it is still inspiring.
