“I had sent an email to some key people in my organization about managing patients’ expectations and how that needed to be addressed differently on an organizational level. The truth of the matter is that I am powerless to change the way the system handles a lot of things. The more personally relevant issue is managing my expectations, both how I relate to the needs/expectations of those in front of me and my own personal needs and expectations of myself in delivering that care. Since we truly only have control over ourselves, the key question becomes how do I manage my own expectations better as a way of managing my own inner resources, namely, time, energy, and mental/emotional output?”
Anne M. Miller is a psychiatrist.
She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “Managing expectations in the face of COVID-19.”
