Orthopodcast 16 - Developing Resilience as a Surgeon

30 Jan 2019

Surgeons are expected to be resilient without ever learning how. They are expected to achieve perfect outcomes, deal with acute and chronic stress, but without necessarily having the appropriate skills. Liggy Webb is a best selling author and leading authority on resilience. She works with the United Nations as a consultant and has helped big organisations from universities to councils to supermarkets. More recently she has worked with NHS staff including groups of doctors. During this Orthopodcast, Liggy introduces us to the concept of resilience and how trainers and trainees can develop their ability to bounce back.
