“Suffering something similar in my career, I know the detrimental impact of not having a voice or being heard in the medical community. Medical professionals do not want to appear weak, so they continue until something breaks.
As a pain physician, I understand where the frontline health care workers are coming from. The intense pain and suffering that they are experiencing. I want to help those that feel this pain before it becomes too much. In my writings, I reveal my own personal journey from burnt out to balanced life in medicine and the advice that helped me. I hope it will help you too.
You are not alone.”
Olivia Ong is a pain and rehabilitation medicine physician in Australia.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “The unspoken pandemic in frontline health care workers.”
