Life After:  When the Doctor Becomes the Patient

Life After: When the Doctor Becomes the Patient

Doctors are accustomed to being caregivers, not care “receivers.” What is it like to change roles and be on the receiving end of treatment?
There is an old adage that doctors make the worst patients…is that true?
Also, we’ll explore the types of support that are most helpful. When our colleagues experience a serious illness what can we say or do help them feel supported and appreciated?
Please join our panelists as they discuss Life After…
