END MORAL INJURY
Let's get healthcare back to caring.
MoralInjury.healthcare was created to help all of us change the conversation about healthcare.
This is NOT about burnout.
It is about taking care of ourselves by taking care of patients.
Awareness: To let others know the human costs of practicing in today's health care environment.
Assembly: A place for physicians and others to come together in meaningful numbers.
Advocacy: Fostering change in how medicine is practiced.
MEET THE TEAM
WENDY DEAN, MD
A psychiatrist by training, Dr. Dean left clinical medicine when generating revenue crowded out the patient-centered priorities in her practice. Her focus since has been on finding innovative ways to make medicine better for both patients and physicians--technologically, ethically, and systemically.
SIMON TALBOT, MD
Dr. Talbot is a reconstructive plastic surgeon who routinely sees the most challenging clinical cases requiring a combination of surgical skill, judgment, and a strong doctor-patient relationship. He is regularly confronted with obstacles to providing the best care for these patients, and recognizes the consequent moral injury of healthcare.
