Prioritizing Physician Trainee Mental Health: Recognizing and Navigating Mental Health Crisis

Studies have shown that the prevalence of psychological distress amongst medical trainees is higher than in the general population. Programs need to be well equipped in managing mental health distress in trainees.

Through case presentations, we will highlight the importance of recognizing the signs of distress, the utilization of processes/protocols to navigate mental health crises in trainees, and having supportive mental health resources available. 

Objectives:

1. Recognize the signs of psychological distress in medical trainees
2. Understand how to manage a mental health crisis of a trainee through review of protocol and helpful tips.
3. Identify mental health supports and resources for trainees.

Wisdom and Well Being: Making Healthcare Work Better for Physicians and Patients

 

Tx Relax: Mindfulness and Self-Compassion in Clinical Practice

Everyday we are facing a clinical situations in which we may not be able to offer full alleviation to some of our patients. Patients with symptoms of chronic back pain, fibromyalgia, IBS, menopause, insomnia and others may have unmet symptom needs. There are non-pharmacologic approaches that have robust evidence of improving functioning and reducing symptom burden for these and other conditions: Mindfulness-based practices. These are practices that have also proven valuable in addressing clinician burnout. In this lecture we will separate the hype from what we know about Mindfulness-based interventions and related practices such as self -compassion, we will learn when and how these practices can be applied clinically and personally.

Objectives:

  • Define mindfulness and self-compassion
  • Describe key literature on the impact of mindfulness and self-compassion
  • Apply mindfulness- and self-compassion-based approaches in clinical practice therapeutically and as adjunct symptoms-management
  • Describe the use of mindfulness- and self-compassion-based approaches in addressing clinician burnout
  • Apply foundational mindfulness- and self-compassion practices

One of the most difficult aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic was the isolation many elderly patients encountered, whether in long-term care facilities, or even in their own homes. Between families’ genuine concerns about the well-being of their aging loved ones and the desire of many older persons to maintain independent lives, coupled with the increase in America’s aging population, it is anticipated that in the coming years, more patients will attempt to age in place: continue the aging process in their own homes.

Join us as a panel of physician and legal experts discuss the complexities of caring for elderly patients in the home setting, address the liability risks associated with this care environment, and offer strategies to mitigate the risks associated with caring for the patient aging in place.

At the end of this presentation, the participants will be able to:
• Recognize the complex issues that elderly patients and their families have encountered since the beginning of pandemic.
• Develop strategies to address some of the liability issues associated with at-home care.
• Identify the limitations of virtual care for at-home patients, and the importance of recognizing signs of elder abuse and/or neglect.

MLMIC is accredited by the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
