In this episode, we speak with George Tewfik, an anesthesiologist, about the importance of recognizing and addressing knowledge gaps in anesthesia residents. George discusses how new residents may arrive with a sense of false confidence that can quickly become a liability, and how educators must earn the trust of their trainees to ensure patient safety. He shares strategies for promoting open communication and collaboration within the team, and emphasizes the importance of recognizing limitations and seeking help when needed. George also discusses how educational institutions and residency programs can better prepare trainees for independent practice by stressing the importance of patient safety and continuing education.
George Tewfik is an anesthesiologist.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Earning trust in anesthesia: How recognizing limitations can improve patient safety.”

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.
At Nuance, we are committed to helping physicians do what you love – care for patients – and spend less time on clinical documentation. The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
Rediscover the joy of medicine with clinical documentation that writes itself, all within the EHR.
