In Education & Quality Improvement, Mentorship by Fareen Zaver MDLeave a Comment

The first annual Emergency Wellness Week is coming to a close. This week we featured wellness initiatives that you can use to boost wellness in your emergency department, talked about the importance of debriefing, heard an amazing story of a Canadian Emergency physician and her personal account of depression, and shared ways to improve wellness in just 30 minutes! Through the collaboration of CanadiEM, CAEP, ALiEM, ACEP and HippoEM – we hope that you have learned some techniques to improve your own wellness and that you will carry some of the techniques with you through the rest of the year!

Now to highlight some of the amazing initiatives throughout the country!
