March 8, 2021 | The Doctors of BC podcast, DocTalks, recently featured Surrey-North Delta Division member Dr Lawrence Yang talking with psychiatrist Dr Jennifer Russel about how the COVID-19 pandemic has placed unprecedented demands on doctors, resulting in increasing reports of burnout.
Dr Yang and Dr Russel share what methods they’ve adopted for personal coping strategies, implementing leadership and QI methodology, and advocating for system-wide enhancements. Other topics include how to stay well, both in your personal and professional life, and what supports are available to doctors that can really make a difference.
Dr Yang is a member of the Surrey-North Delta Physician Wellness Committee, a physician-led initiative aimed at providing a supportive environment to openly discuss physician wellness, and to identify opportunities for positive change at the system, practice, and personal level.
