Dr Olivia Ong – The Heart-Centredness of Medicine
Luke and Susie speak to Dr Ong about how to combat burnout as someone who knows full well what burnout and fatigue is like after a severe car accident in 2008. She was told she would never walk again as a paraplegic, but beat the odds.
This medical mentor and pain physician has released a new book, The Heart-Centeredness of Medicine, which includes mind, heart, body and external self-care strategies for burnout prevention and recovery.
“We need improved communication, relationships and leadership to protect our healthcare industry from severe retention decline and a dramatic healthcare system breakdown” she says.
