Skills

Focus on maintaining and building your skills, particularly in key areas such as respiratory failure, severe sepsis, pneumonia, or chronic heart failure.

Problem Solving

Concentrate on what you can fix rather than the limitations and prepare accordingly. Flexibility and adaptability are important factors when treating patients with acute conditions.

Teamwork

Build strong relationships and partnerships with fellow staff. Clinicians naturally share a heritage of self-improvement and collaboration. Dynamic teams are essential to saving lives.

Simulation

Incorporate simulation exercises with colleagues and/or hospital teams. This practice helps clinicians prepare for common scenarios, plan ahead, and coordinate more effectively.

Palliative Care

Integrate palliative care practices into your routine. Often, critically ill patients need symptom control and end-of-life care, clear communication with family, and options for dignity in death and decision-making power

Self Care

Clinicians are undoubtedly dealing with high doses of human pain and emotional demands. Choose to be kind to yourself and practice self-care daily. Remember to always make time to relax and do something each day that brings you joy.
