Feels like a good week. The Europe wide research study our department is participating in connects us with a bigger picture and higher purpose, nourishes social engagement and provides a channel for physical action.
Also protected some 1:1 time with ED Quality Improvement Project registrars. Helped them understand the difference between medical research and quality improvement. Reinforced the importance of a moral compass – looking deeply and understanding where our (project) volition comes from.
Personal positive – concentrated most of my time and energy on my sphere of influence. Action and agency.
Personal area to grow – meeting people where they are, and not where I want/expect them to be ! Balancing the real life time pressure of delivering on research and departmental change while still providing young minds a safe space to learn.
Compassion in practice.
