In this enlightening episode, we delve deep into the pressing issue of physician burnout with expert Dr. Will Border, Chief Physician Wellness Officer at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and Professor of Pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine. Highlighting the pervasive prevalence and potential perils of burnout in healthcare, Dr. Border considers it as a potential upcoming healthcare crisis.
Dr. Border and Host Holly Wayment provide an informed and compassionate discourse on the contributing factors to physician burnout like administrative burdens and high stress levels. He views it as a 'dynamic', rather than static state and proposes solutions that include open conversations, emotional support, and eradicating stigmatization to alleviate the problem.
Additionally, this episode exposes alarming disparities in burnout rates, particularly higher prevalence among women physicians and more pronounced instances after about a decade in the profession. Steering away from the debilitating pursuit for perfection, the healthcare industry's transformation and adoption of more accommodative work environments and self-compassionate approaches are underscored as potential remedies.
Preserving Self-compassion in Healthcare Service Delivery
In the midst of stress and burnout accompanying healthcare services, this episode emphasizes the necessity of self-compassion by practicing mindfulness, extending self-kindness and promoting common humanity. Drawing upon the teachings of self-compassion expert, Kristin  Neff from the University of Texas, this episode offers insightful inputs and tools for navigating the intricate emotional facades in healthcare delivery.

In this enlightening episode of Pediatrics Now, Host Holly Wayment introduces us to a founder of pediatric palliative care.  This talk, by renowned Harvard pediatrician, Dr. Julie Hauer, highlights the complex world of managing chronic pain in children with severe neurological impairment. Featuring real-life case studies, Dr. Hauer guides us through the intricacies of identifying and treating chronic pain in these specific pediatric cases and attempts to shed more light on the often underrepresented field of pediatric palliative care.
A substantial portion of the conversation revolves around the significance and interpretation of behavioral changes, and the importance of observations in diagnosing pain in neurologically impaired children. We delve into comprehensive screening methods and effective interventions that can contribute to helping the child attain a calmer state.
Steering the conversation beyond known problems, this episode introduces the concept of neuropain, a type of affliction where inflammation and injury of tissues can lead to pain, and discusses how to tackle associated chronic issues via a combination of pharmacological and complementary methods such as music and massage therapy.
Additionally, Dr. Hauer discusses the various tried and tested drugs and their uses for managing neuropathic pain in children, emphasizing the necessity of expertise in handling such medications. She also sheds light on indicators of escalation despite treatment, and shares possible countermeasures.
With a strong commitment to improving the lives of neurologically impaired children, this discussion emphasizes the dire need for an integrated, multipronged approach, taking into account all possible sources of pain, the role of various drugs, constant monitoring, communication with the family, and adjustment of treatments as necessary. This comprehensive episode serves as a much-needed guide to healthcare professionals who strive to provide the best care to this special pediatric population.

OVERVIEW:
This episode of Pediatrics Now with host Holly Wayment brings on renowned neonatologist and infectious disease expert, Dr. J.B. Cantey. The focus of this gripping discussion is the recent measles outbreak in 15 U.S. states, with specific attention on Florida. The conversation illuminates the dire outcomes resulting from insufficient vaccination rates across multiple communities. Dr. Cantey provides expert insights into the highly contagious nature of the measles virus. He warns about the grave implications of low vaccination rates and emphasizes the immediate need for increased education on the effectiveness and safety of vaccines.
 
In an effort to arm all listening pediatricians tackling anti-vaccination, Dr. Cantey offers practical advice whilst highlighting the essential role vaccines play in child health and what to say to patients. He outlines the importance of calm, consistent, and positive communication while providing fact-based, impartial information about the advantages and secure safety records of vaccines.
