diversity in healthcare

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • Physicians and doctors faced with stressful work without adequate recognition, reward and support are at risk of exhaustion (physical and emotional) and a developing detachment from their work. This accumulates and is frequently accompanied by decreased engagement, worsening concentration, increased frustration and emotional outbursts. Motivation wanes and the clinician no longer functions at their best. One of the risk factors is being a black female doctor.

    We will be discussing important issues like bias, race, and discrimination in healthcare, how leadership positions put BIPOC in a unique but sometimes uncomfortable position.

    According to the “Diversity in Medicine: Facts and Figures 2019” from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), it showed that two-thirds of physicians are male. The same report also includes a breakdown of active physicians by race and ethnicity, which shows that 56% of practicing physicians are white and only 5% are black.

    We will be also discussing the importance of diversity in medicine. The lack of diversity in the physician workforce impact black patients’ health and well-being. Black patients may feel more easy discussing health with black doctors, which can help increase their compliance and adherence to medical advice. A recent study found that even when white and black doctors used the same communication style and words, black patients were more receptive to a medical advice by the black physician (Saha, 2020).

physician, thou art thy healer - what if health care professionals lead by example

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • This message is to really call upon health care providers to be really mindful of their own health. It is so much easier to advise our patients if we are ourself acknowledge our humanity but still recognize that our health is important. So, if physicians and healthcare providers, and the systems in which they work, did a better job and recognizing the importance of a balanced healthy life, then perhaps physicians wouldn’t have the highest rates of suicide amongst professionals.

    Physicians have an increased risk of death due to their profession. It is estimated that 400 medical students and physicians commit suicide annually in the U.S. The suicide rate is up to 3.8 times higher for male physicians and 4.5 times higher for female physicians compared to the general population (Farmer, 2018).

    Physician give so much of themselves to others that they don’t get a chance to pay some much-needed attention to themselves. Not taking care of yourself affects your ability to care for your patients, increasing your patient’s and coworkers’ dissatisfaction.

    Apart from affecting yourself, your patients, and your coworkers, burnout has a more significant effect on your place of employment and the healthcare system under which you operate.
