Today we cover an important but often overlooked topic - health professionals reconnecting and supporting each to manage the often difficult natures of our/their jobs, improving doctor-patient relationships and enhancing self-reflection and communication skills. this seems particularly relevant to the current bushfire and drought crisis in Australia. One well-established format is Balint Groups, and more can be found here; https://www.balintaustralianewzealand.org/
Book mentioned in the podcast = "Skills for Communicating with Patients, 3rd Edition", Jonathan Silverman, Suzanne Kurtz, Juliet Draper
