I’m going off-schedule, just a bit, because of that little cross-country move that’s coming up this week…
I’ll close out June by resurrecting something I was told many readers enjoyed in the past. At the end of each month, I’ll choose 3 medical/ surgical/ critical care publications, 1 leadership/ management publication, and share what books are on my nightstand with you. So, what have I been paying attention to lately?
- This is an incredibly timely topic for all of us to consider- how are we really doing with regard to treatment of racial and ethnic minorities in surgical training? Short answer? We have miles to go before we can sleep.
- What factors can impact leader effectiveness with teams in healthcare? If we’re not sleeping, they’re not sleeping either. Action item: STOP the evening emails and minimize after-hours expectations. Please.
- While we’re on the subject of sleep, this systematic review highlights risk factors for sleep disruption in the ICU. Hint: Many, though not all, are modifiable.
- We are all going to make mistakes- they are an inevitable occurrence if we’re learning and growing. If that prospect scares you, here are some ideas on how to manage your fear of making mistakes.
- As for what I’m reading, I’m in the process of finishing these two books (both of which I would definitely recommend!):
More next week from the 406!
