Dr Frank Meumann is a GP with 40 years’ experience and a senior medical educator with General Practice Training Tasmania. He received the 2010 GPET Medical Educator of the Year award for excellence in GP registrar training, and he is the past president of the Balint Society of Australia and New Zealand.

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;

Book mentioned in the podcast = "Skills for Communicating with Patients, 3rd Edition", Jonathan Silverman, Suzanne Kurtz, Juliet Draper
