The Prescription for Long Life
A CME Dinner Series brought to you by Maimonides Medical Center, Charles B. Wang Community Health Center,
Chinese American Medical Society, Coalition for Asian-American IPA, Inc., and Healthfirst
Longevity represents a long-standing goal of Chinese culture and of medicine. Reports of physician burnout and suicide show important gaps in physician knowledge, competence and practice in managing challenges of modern practice. Understanding these principles will also help with educating patients and caregivers.
In this series of lectures, the overall goals will be to summarize what is known about how burnout, resilience, nutrition, exercise, mindfulness and sleep affect physicians, and explore the relationships between these problems (e.g. Kemper 2015). These relationships can be explored further with the speakers as they develop their lectures, and provide a way to reinforce the information in each of the lectures, and serve as a lead in from on lecture to the next lecture.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
Objective 1: Implement strategies to prevent and treat burnout
Objective 2: Practice supportive behaviors between physicians, staff, and patients
Objective 3: Implement recommendations to get adequate sleep
Objective 4: Perform physical activity assessments and provide exercise counselling
Medical directors, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, health professionals and practice leaders that serve high-risk populations.
