A big shout out to all who attended our crowdsourcing event and dotmocracy held at Crown Isle in January! We had 65 physicians, partners, and spouses attend and reviews were exceptionally positive.
Through the evening, participants had an opportunity to review current MSA projects, explore local challenges and barriers in the provision of care, socialize, and most importantly, relax with the comedic efforts of Mrs. Julie Kim and the Vanier Senior Jazz Band. Ideas and conversation flowed freely and we are happy to report that a number of new initiatives and projects have developed with notable mention going to our next PESCCi event: Family Ski/Tube Day and a Presentation by Dr. Reed Holden at Mount Washington on February 23, 2019. This event was born out of the dotmocracy where the top themes captured by the audience included; a hunger for hospital based CME and multidisciplinary collaboration, a need for more family time, and a movement to drive physician wellness.
Again, a big thank you to those who attended New Year’s 2.0. Your contributions are invaluable to the efficacy of our MSA. Moving forward, PESCCi and its executive will use this information to shape our 2019 operations, with particular openness to Physician Wellness and family.
