        In S3 E9 I am delighted to welcome Dr Daniel Murphy, MD to the podcast.  Dr Murphy is a Professor of Pediatrics(Cardiology),Emeritus . He is  the co-Director, Department Wellbeing Directors Council and the Course Director, Stanford WellMD Physician Well-being Director Course at Stanford University School of Medicine.   Our paths first crossed when I was a participant on the  Stanford Wellbeing Directors course in 2021.  After this virtual meeting I was delighted to be able to meet him in person this year at the CWO course and learn more about him and his leadership work at the  WellMD Center.         Dan has been affiliated with the WellMD Center since its inception, working primarily with the Department WellBeing Directors.  He is a member of the Clinician Wellness Working Group of the American College of Cardiology.  He also remains involved in clinical quality and process improvement at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.     In this conversation we discuss in more detail the Stanford conceptual model of professional fulfilment, exploring each of the domains ( The Individual, Culture of Wellness and Efficiency of Practice) with a leadership and Wellbeing 2.0 lens.    Dan tells me about his own experiences  of cultivating a mindfulness and self-compassion practice.  We explore team culture from a leadership perspective, how to build coalitions in healthcare  and the role and value of connections made through commensality groups.          With extensive expertise and valuable perspective in a number of clinical and non-clinical leadership roles Dan shares practical wisdom, marrying both art and science, on what wellness-centred leadership looks like at its best.  In their recent paper on this topic ( linked below) the WellMD team, emphasise three key prerequisites :1.Care about People Always2.Cultivate Individual and Team Relationships3.Inspire Change   It is will be very evident to listeners that this is Dan's approach.  I throughly enjoyed our conversation and know I will re-visit it several times gaining a new pearl, depth and perspective each time.

       In S3 E8 I am delighted to speak to Dr Adrian Plunkett, Consultant Paediatric Intensivist at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Founder of the incredible Learning from Excellence ( LfE) platform about his work and the evolution of the platform to date. As testament to the global impact of the  "philosophy, practice and social movement", he has created, I am equally delighted to introduce my Emergency Physician Colleague at Royal Hobart Hospital, Dr Ray Siauw. Ray is our co-DEMT and recipient of the 2018 ACEM Wellbeing award for his work establishing the LEX platform inspired by Adrian's work at LfE. ( full Bios in episode)      This conversation is a wonderful testament to the power of momentum, inspiration and building coalitions and communities of practice to make positive change in healthcare.     Adrian and Ray discuss the practicalities and challenges of "making things happen" and organisational change and innovation in healthcare.    Adrian is also the co-host of the fabulous Being Better together podcast with Dr Chris Turner, founder of Civility Saves Lives, my guest in S3 E5( link below) and we continue our discussion of safety 2 thinking and practice in healthcare and the use and application of appreciation inquiry.   I was keen to discuss Adrian's past, present and planned future research work adding to the qualitative and qualitative evidence to support positive feedback and appreciative practice in healthcare.    I thoroughly enjoyed re-listening to this conversation and whilst acknowledging that we did perhaps only scratch the surface, there are undoubtedly pearls for pause and thought here I will return to again and again. Links/references/resources discussed in this episode:Learning From Excellence ( LfE) website and platform:https://learningfromexcellence.comThe Mind Full Medic Podcast with Dr Chris Turner https://www.buzzsprout.com/1091279/10743593-the-impact-of-behaviour-on-individual-and-team-performance-and-why-civility-can-save-lives-in-healthcare-with-dr-chris-turner.mp3?download=trueBeing Better Together Podcast https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/being-better-together/id1603984431?i=1000549511577https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/being-better-together/id1603984431?i=1000553324059Dr Adrian Plunkett on Lfe SMACC Dublin 2017https://smacc.net.au/2017/02/learning-from-excellence/Dr Ray Siauw ACEM wellbeing award video 2018https://acem.org.au/News/July/A-Ray-of-SunshineDisclaimer: The content in this podcast is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

"Nutrition in medicine is a human factors issue" Dr Maryam Makowski In S3 E 7 I am delighted to welcome Dr Maryam S. Makowski, Ph.D., FACN, NBC-HWC to the podcast. Dr Makowski is a clinical assistant professor in the Stanford University Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, the Associate Director of Scholarship and Health Promotion of the Stanford Medicine WellMD & WellPhD Center, and a nutrition and physician well-being coach at Stanford University.            Prior to joining Stanford, she served as a scientific associate at Toronto General Hospital-University Health Network in Toronto, and as an advisor to Air Canada rouge pilots and cabin crew on optimal nutrition for fatigue mitigation. Over the course of her career, she has authored many highly cited scientific papers on nutrition and well-being.    In this conversation we discuss her career and research trajectory particularly looking at how  nutrition, hydration and other lifestyle factors including how sleep  might influence cognitive performance initially in pilots and most recently applying this to doctors and in healthcare. We discuss in more details what Maryam refers to as the four pillars:  hydration, meal composition and timing and strategic use of caffeine and how we might optimise these and mitigate shift work related fatigue, We discuss the specific challenges and barriers to these that doctors encounter in their practice.  Maryam describes the complex interplay of nutrition and hydration with stress, sleep and mood/cognitive performance.       Whilst acknowledging the growing research evidence is increasingly substantive in this area it is not conclusive and no one size fits all.   Knowledge of circadian rhythms and individual thresholds is essential in tailoring interventions and strategies discussed.         I find Maryam's work fascinating, highly relevant and am impressed by the organisational change her team have been able to advocate for on the back of research.  I encourage you to think about you own approaches and how you might optimise these and also advocate for you colleagues in your own place of work.

           Welcome to this very special mash up podcast edition with my previous guests Dr Andrea Austin MD and Dr Dan Dworkis MD on RECOVERY.Dr Dan Dworkis MD  Emergency Physician Host of The Emergency Mind Podcast and Author of The Emergency Mind book ( full bio S2E8)Dr Andrea Austin MD  Emergency Physician Simulation Educator and Host of The Revitalising Doctor Podcast. ( full bio S2E14)"There is no performance without recovery"        This is part 2 of a three part series recorded across our podcasts with a focus on recovery. In part 1 we explore "micro"-recovery and opportunities for brief and short term recovery and reset 'in the moment' on shift. In this episode we look at what Dan has aptly termed "meso-recovery" discussing how we might approach recovery pre, post and between shifts to allow us to maintain and sustain our performance and our wellbeing.  We discuss what this has looked like for us in the past, where we are at present and what it might look like at its best. I'm conscious I am speaking to relative experts in this space who have put significant time, energy, attention and intention into the "work" of recovery.  I think despite this however all of us would concede this is still very much a work in progress.       Both Andrea and Dan have valuable perspective to share from their personal journeys to date and whilst we acknowledge that this is going to look slightly different for individuals, there are some great pearls, tools and strategies to take to your next run of days ON and OFF.In the final part of the series we look at longer term cycles of "macro"-recovery in our approach to periodisation of work, play, rest and optimising performance, wellbeing and longevity of practice.           This recording and connecting with two incredible clinicians and now friends on their side of the planet, was a life highlight for me and this topic is Mind Full Medic Podcast core content.

  Welcome back to S3 E6.  Returning further inspired, motivated and equipped with more knowledge, tools and specific training from my trip to California for Stanford's Chief Wellness Officer Course last month, I am delighted to speak to Dr Joanna Sinclair, a clinician leading the change and charge in organisational wellbeing in healthcare on this side of the planet.        Dr Sinclair is an Anaesthetist living and working in New Zealand with a career-long interest in doctors’ health and wellbeing. Since early 2020 she has been the Senior Medical Officer Wellbeing Lead at Counties Manukau Health, working with the Organisational Development Team, and is the hospital lead for the Health Roundtable Workforce Wellbeing Improvement Group. She works to improve the wellbeing of healthcare workers at an organisational level, and has been instrumental in bringing Schwartz Rounds to her organisation to further support staff and promote compassion in healthcare.   Jo has undertaken additional training in coaching and mentoring, critical incident stress management, and communication. She is co-chair of the ANZCA Wellbeing Special Interest Group.      In this conversation we discuss why investing her time and energy in improving  her colleagues' wellbeing has become a professional mission.   Specifically we discuss :         - The role, scope and purpose of a wellbeing organisational clinical lead         - Building the business case and "buy in" to appoint this leadership role.        - The importance of local data to drive local solutions         - Bridging silos, "asking, listening and empowering" and building coalitions of colleagues         already doing great wellbeing work     Jo tells us about some of the initiatives, in their overarching strategy, which have worked well  including Schwartz rounds, an initiative with focus on building community and cultivating self-compassion for all healthcare staff.  I hope that much of her important work is no longer viewed as novel in the coming years as we embed these roles into our healthcare systems of the future.  Clinician wellbeing is a key strategic priority and ultimately patient safety and care demands it.

In S 3 E 4 I am delighted to welcome  Dr Chris Turner to the podcast.  Dr Turner is a consultant in Emergency Medicine at University Hospitals of Coventry and Warwickshire in England.  He is also the co-founder of Civility Saves Lives ( https://www.civilitysaveslives.com ) a grass roots organisation dedicated to raising awareness of the impact behaviour has on individuals, teams and organisations.  He has given two TEDx talks on the impact of rudeness on teams and his work has resonated widely and globally.   He is also the co-host of the podcast Being Better Together, a collaboration with the Learning from Excellence team (https://learningfromexcellence.com)      In this conversation Chris relays his own professional journey and experience as healthcare leader and a safety and quality lead.  His story of a very challenging start to his consultant career, the powerful impact of a trusted mentor and critical friend, and the evolution of skills and expertise from this experience to his future work is powerful.  He joins the dots in retrospect here.      He describes the spectrum of approaches to improving safety and quality and mitigating  risk in the challenging, complex, every-changing healthcare environment.   These span the traditional Safety I approach of focussing on what and why things go wrong through to the safety II approach ensuring as much as possible goes right.        His own work in this area focusses on the impact of behaviour on individuals teams and organisations. He explains the "science of civility" which forms the basis for much of this work.   He emphasises that, with few exceptions, we do not set out to behave badly to each other and misunderstandings can arise when we "listen to be right not to do right"   He describes and explains his use of  Appreciative Inquiry in his work more recently as a tool to engage colleagues and drive innovation and positive change.     Chris shares some great examples and lessons from his own leadership journey to date.  I left this conversation with many pearls and with an optimistic resolve to remain curious, listen with intent to understand and start small but continue to dream big.

In S3 E4 I am delighted to welcome Dr Mark Shapiro MD to the podcast.Dr Shapiro is a Hospitalist in full time clinical practice in Sonoma Vally, California. He is board certified in internal medicine, attained in University of California, San Diego. He has a BA in history from University of California, Los Angeles and spent some time as a sports journalist as an undergraduate.        Notably he is the creator, producer and host of the fabulous Explore the Space Podcast, a show focused on bringing healthcare providers and consumers together through conversation with leaders across a diverse spectrum of disciplines, expertise and interests. Mark is also a TEDx speaker and delivered his first TEDx talk in March 2021 on using compliments as a lever in health care ( link below).   Dr Shapiro is an active voice on Twitter, a fan of the TV show Ted Lasso and inspiration behind the #MedLasso movement. He is also an avid home coffee roaster and Peloton bike rider.     In this conversation Mark takes me on a ride of wit and wonder as we explore his own creative career in healthcare. We discuss his professional role as a hospitalist and the increasingly rarity and value of generalist skills in modern healthcare.        He tells me about his passion and purpose as a podcaster and inspiration behind the Explore the Space show and arc of the podcast to date. With his obvious talent as a podcaster and a background in sports journalism, I am keen to glean tips and explore his own thoughts on the place for media training in medicine.               We discuss the place of social media platforms in medicine and potential podcasting affords to create connection, community and forge friendships in challenging times.  I am particularly interested to hear about the momentum and  inspiration behind the #medlasso movement which has gained considerable traction in our healthcare community.      Mark discusses his TEDx  experience and talk on using compliments as a lever in medicine.This conversation takes some delightful side trails into endurance running, the art and science of coffee roasting and why #medgrind has gained traction.     I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation and did feel I was getting some "coach Shapiro" schooling in the art of  podcasting and rhetoric.

         In S3 E 3 I am delighted to welcome Lincoln Quilliam to the podcast.  Lincoln is a Civil Engineer and Project Manager with a passion for adventure, travel and innovation.  He is the Founder and Race director of the Kunyani Mountain Run, Run director at the Kunyani Trail Series, Owner of Trail Ventures and Vice President at the Tasmanian Trail Running Association.  He is a recipient of a Winston Churchill Fellowship Tasmania and a previous graduate of the Tasmanian Leaders I- Lead programme.      In this conversation we discuss his leadership journey and various roles in the Tasmanian trail running community.    Lincoln speaks about his upcoming inaugural event the Kunyani Mountain Run in Hobart. He tells us about the journey of KMR from its inception to the present date and I am interested to how and why he has succeeded where others have stumbled.  He reflects on his professional skill set and training and experience to date, which have assisted in bringing a team of local stakeholders and dedicated volunteers, including, fellow running enthusiasts, together to make this event happen.          In particular I am also keen to explore his passion and deep respect for his birth city and local land and the various ways he has helped to cultivate community and connection to the trails.      Lincoln has been awarded a Churchill Fellowship and will finally venture overseas in the second half of 2022,  after pandemic-related travel setbacks, to study the global trail running scene in more depth. He hopes to return with new insights to help progress his vision for his local trail community in Tasmania.      I throughly enjoyed this conversation and an opportunity to speak about my beloved trail running.  Lincoln could easily lead a public health campaign promoting the physical, mental and social benefits of getting out walking and running in natural settings with a group of fellow humans. There are many pearls and we revisit themes of purpose, leadership, and the importance of connection to people and place.

         In S3E2 I am delighted to welcome Dr Sarah Dalton,  B. Med MMgt (Hlth) FRACP GAICD, to the podcast. Dr Dalton is the Director of Clinical Engagement at eHealth NSW,  a Paediatric Emergency Physician and a professional Coach offering services to health executives and clinical leaders through Capstan Partners in Sydney.        In this wonderful conversation we explore Sarah's clinical and non-clinical roles and career trajectory punctuated in her words with happenstance, curiosity and a determination to make things happen.  Sarah has a long-standing interest in leadership development with a wealth of experience in systems leadership roles and we explore her leadership journey to date in the first part of the episode.  She suggests that the most valuable lessons are to be learned on the job and also credits the opportunity to receive  executive coaching herself early in her leadership career. We discuss definitions and styles of leadership, change management, imposter syndrome, embracing vulnerability and the incorporation of leadership skills, training and development into clinical training.       In the second part of the episode we explore her coaching journey  from coachee to coach. I am interested in her perspective as both physician and coach.  We discuss coaching for "positions and transitions" in medical careers, motivation, indentity and much more.  Sarah discusses the The ABC framework ( Autonomy, Belonging and Contribution) of our core work needs in healthcare and the role of coaching can play to improve our wellbeing.     Sarah tells about recent research work in collaboration with the Black Dog Institute on the value of short 30 minute coaching sessions for doctors.  This conversation could easily translate to an entire podcast "Coaching Conversations with Dr Dalton", you read it here first. I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation  with Sarah and look forward to many more in the future.

Welcome back to Season 3 Episode 1.   I am delighted to introduce Dr Todd Fraser. Todd is an Intensive care specialist and aeromedical retrieval physician currently living and working in the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia.  He has held director and senior leadership roles wearing both of these hats. Todd is also an experienced medical educator and supervisor of training.  He is the co-founder of digital platform Osler Tech.        This conversation explores Dr Fraser's  expertise and particular interests at the intersection between teaching, training and supervision, patient safety and clinical governance.  We discuss his own career trajectory and journey to date, the inspiration and impetus which led him to co-found Osler several  years ago and the evolution of the platform to date.       Familiar themes are revisited, including the art of our practice and  teaching and training for technical and non-technical skills. I particularly found value in our discussion of longevity of practice and maintenance of skills and performance as specialist.     Todd shares his perspective as medical educator and supervisor and explores the role of the supervisor,  utility of the portfolio, feedback and art of honest self-appraisal.    We discuss patient and clinician safety, risk and error and medicine, the sequelae of adverse outcomes and the role technology like Osler might have in future healthcare practice for organisations and individuals.  I left this conversation with much to ponder for myself and my profession but hopeful for a future where we use smart and innovative technology to benefit our patients and each other.     Episode links/references:Dr Todd Fraser https://twitter.com/Sunnydoc72https://www.linkedin.com/in/todd-fraser-ab9a8925/Osler Techhttps://oslercommunity.comhttps://osler.app.link/yGBv7k3dtnbhttps://osler.app.link/gMWAvRgaYgbRate/review/subscribe:https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-mind-full-medic-podcast/id1513559414https://www.themindfullmedicpodcast.comDisclaimer: The content in this podcast is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

Season 2 / 2021 wrap up.  Thank you to listeners and our growing global community.  Another opportunity to review the year and season that was and to give particular thanks to my incredible guests for generously and enthusiastically sharing their time, expertise and perspective. I am very proud of the space we are creating.  I discuss this paper by Dr Tait Shanafelt which articulates the future of sustaining the wellbeing, performance and longevity of practice of physicians.

    In S2 E15 I am delighted to welcome Dr Eve Purdy to the podcast. Dr Purdy has a fascinating skill set as both Emergency Physician and Applied Anthropologist. She completed her emergency medicine residency in Kingston, Ontario in Canada whilst concurrently studying for her masters in anthropology in Utah. Today she combines her passion and expertise using her skills to research and evaluate culture and team dynamics in emergency medicine and resuscitation.        In the first half of this episode Eve introduces her research work and methods to explore the values, beliefs and practises defining culture in emergency medicine. I was first introduced to this through the video she produced "Welcome to the ED family".  This resonated widely in our emergency medicine community and was inspired by research work using a simulated emergency department to produce an environment of "cultural compression" to study our core values, beliefs and defining practises in emergency medicine.  I particularly like Eve's take that Emergency Medicine is well characterised as "navigating uncertainty together."   We go on to discuss a second study, the subject of Eve's thesis, looking at trauma team dynamics using simulation and she summarises key findings and characteristics of high performing teams.    In the second part of the conversation Eve tells me more about her work on cultivating psychologically safe teams in medicine. She explores the what, why and how of psychological safety in clinical settings. Eve  highlights the importance of small moments and opportunities throughout our working day to optimise safety for staff ( the means)  and ultimately positively impact quality of care for our patients ( the goal). Such moments include the team huddle, after-action review and onus on senior clinicians to set the tone.  I left our conversation with some very practical and actionable strategies and pearls to take to the clinical floor tomorrow.I learned a lot from Eve and look forward to following future applied research from Dr Purdy and her team.

            In S2 E14 I am delighted to welcome Dr Andrea Austin MD, FACEP, FAAEM, CHSE to the podcast. Dr Austin is an Emergency Physician and Simulation educator based in Southern California.  She graduated medical school from the University of Iowa and completed her emergency medicine residency at Naval Medical Center San Diego ( NMCSD) Dr Austin was the first female emergency physician to be stationed at Navy Trauma Training Center ( NTTC) at LA County + USC, one of the busiest trauma centers in the United States.  As the emergency medicine physician and simulation director at NTTC, she trained hundreds of military medical personnel in the latest trauma advances to prepare them to provide medical care in austere environments. In 2016 she deployed to Iraq as part of a Shock Trauma Platoon. Andrea will also be familiar to many listeners as the co-host of The Emergency Mind podcast with previous guest Dr Dan Dworkis. Her voice has kept me and many anchored through this challenging time. Her most recent endeavour the Revitalize Women Physician Circle combines her experience with executive coaching, mentoring and leadership development.                                Dr Austin makes active, meaningful contributions to a number of key areas of medical practice including medical simulation education and training, military medicine, veterans’ health, equity in medicine and female leadership, mentoring and advancing physician and healthcare worker wellbeing conversations and strategy.                   In this conversation Andrea allows me to explore her professional and personal journey wearing these hats. This conversation spans simulation as teaching tool, female leadership, coaching and mentoring through finding her voice as a podcast host.  Specifically, she reflects on her own experiences of career burnout, the role coaching has played in helping her to determine and align her values in the workplace to ultimately cultivate sustainable career satisfaction.  Regular listeners will be familiar with many of the themes we discuss and Andrea gives truly valuable perspective.         Andrea first introduced me to Ted Lasso and the #Medlasso movement inspired by Dr Mark Shapiro from the Explore the Space Podcast and no discussion of leadership and team culture would be complete without some #medlasso critique!Contact /Links/References:Dr Andrea Austinhttps://www.andreaaustinmd.comhttps://twitter.com/EMSimGalRevitalize Women Physician Circle https://www.peoplealwayshcc.com/revitalizePodcasts https://www.emergencymind.com/podcasthttps://feminem.org/women-in-medicine/ https://www.annemergmed.com/article/S0196-0644(17)30059-8/fulltexthttps://www.susandavid.com/about-emotional-agilityhttps://www.explorethespaceshow.comDisclaimer: The content in this podcast is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

            In S2 E13 I am delighted to welcome Melissa Clarke to the podcast. Melissa is a political reporter with the ABC, working at Parliament House in Canberra. It’s a job she has had, with a few interludes, for more than a decade. She reports on politics, parliament and national affairs across a range of radio and television programs, as well as ABC digital news site. Melissa’s reporting experience spans beyond politics though, having been a foreign correspondent based at the ABC London bureau, reporting from Pacific nations, and reporting in-depth on issues including the environment, national security and justice - and the occasional bushfire. Away from the work, Melissa is a dedicated runner who has experienced a brief period of success at the high performance level, but has had a lifelong passion for running, endurance challenges and the great outdoors.      In this conversation we discuss and explore Melissa's work as a reporter and I draw some parallels with my own profession and day-to-day work in the emergency department, particularly with respect to the need to respond to ever-changing circumstances and crises.  As both doctor and amateur podcaster, I was keen to glean some tips from an expert on interview skills and communicating under pressure.        Indeed through this conversation I found some additional parallels but also broadened the lens and perspective through which I viewed her role and indeed modern media more generally.      Melissa is an avid reader and we explore how she navigates the need to read widely and consume all forms of media as part of her work with both a professional and personal yearning to cultivate deeper work and reading.       Naturally as fellow runner and lover of endurance pursuits and the outdoors, we discuss her why of adventure racing and how she cultivates time and space for self-care outside a job which could be 24/7, if she let it.           Links/ references: Melissa Clarke Twitter @Clarke_MelissaDart Center for Journalism an Traumahttps://dartcenter.orgMelissa's recommenced reads:We Were Not Men Campbell Mattinsonhttps://www.harpercollins.com.au/9781460713150/we-were-not-men/Power without Glory Frank Hary https://www.penguin.com.au/books/power-without-glory-9781741667615 Why Die?

 In  S2E12 I am delighted to welcome Dr Alice McNamara and Dr Charlotte Durand to the podcast.      Alice is sport and exercise medicine registrar in Melbourne, Australia. She is also a dual world champion rower with over a decade of experience on the Australian women’s rowing team. She qualified for the lightweight women’s double for the London Olympic Games and attended the Beijing games as an alternate.    (Full Bio in episode. )     Charlotte is an emergency registrar working in Darwin, NT. She is also a triathlete and competed for Australia in the 2018 ITU world triathlon finals.  (Again full bio in episode.)     In this conversation we discuss their respective backgrounds and careers to date in both sport and medicine and use as a platform to explore the themes of optimising performance and supporting wellbeing for doctors ( and indeed anyone looking to do this in their life).  Alice and Charlotte use their experiences in sport and apply the performance lens to their medical training. They cover periodisation, deliberate practice, visualisation, coaching and mentoring and setting boundaries and recovery goals, topics familiar to listeners to this podcast. We explore parallels, similarities and differences between the athlete and doctor-in-training experience.  Alice explains the concepts of physiological overreaching and the pathological overtraining syndrome and we compare and contrast to the profession syndrome of burnout.         In the second half of the conversation Alice speaks about her research with the AIS exploring female athlete heath and we discuss the Relative Energy Deficit in Sport ( RED-S), introducing concepts of energy availability in both female and male athletes, elite and recreational.   This leads on to a more general conversation about fuelling and hydration for shift work and attention to self care and basic needs at work in the clinical environment.      The central themes of performance and wellbeing weave through this entirely of this conversation and both Alice and Charlotte share valuable perspective including many pearls and takeaways from their considerable experience and expertise.     I learned a lot from this conversation and it is a joy to listen to Alice and Charlotte share their authentic lived experience of performing and integrating sport, work and life as both athletes and doctors with a medical and sports science and psychology framework.

           In episode 11 Season 2 I'm delighted to welcome Luke Pryor BPsych (Hons) MPsych (Clin), MAPS.  Luke is a clinical psychologist based  in Queensland.  He is also an impressive ultra runner.      Luke has a background in human movement, sports and exercise science and has worked with elite and recreational athletes and teams.  He found himself increasingly drawn to the mental aspects of performance which led him to undertake extensive further training leading to a Masters in Clinical Psychology in 2012.  Over the past decade Luke has worked in public and private practice and has experience in several areas including anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction and sports psychology and performance.  Luke uses evidence-based therapies including cognitive behaviour therapy, motivational interviewing and has particular interests in compassion focused therapy and mindfulness, which we discuss here.       His professional background and interests make him very well placed to work with runners, athletes and individuals aiming to get and stay active, providing assistance with the mental and psychological aspects of the their sport, health, and exercise and performance.Most recently Luke and his partner Kara Landells, who is strength and conditioning coach, have combined expertise and their passions for trail running hosting Resilient Runner Retreats.                 In this conversation Luke takes us on his professional journey to date.  He describes the challenges of working as a mental health clinician through a global pandemic, a time when our collective stress and anxiety has increased and his services have never been more in demand.  Luke discusses the practises, tools and advice he has prioritised for his clients and patients through this period.  We explore self-compassion and mindfulness based strategies and a practical approach to self-care in challenging times.           In the second half of the conversation we discuss Luke's why, where and what of running and explore the mental aspects of running and sporting performance.  Luke uses running as a metaphor for life and we visit topics including motivation, self-awareness, identity, purpose and authenticity.  It is perhaps no surprise that runners attending the resilient runner retreats come away feeling they have explored much more than their sport.   I throughly enjoyed our conversation and am looking forward to attending a future weekend!Find our more about  about Luke Pryor :https://www.linkedin.com/in/luke-pryor-48b28176/https://www.instagram.com/littlemadrunner/Resilient Runner Retreats:https://linktr.ee/pryorl/Other Links discussed here :  Mindful Self-compassion Kristen Neffhttps://self-compassion.orghttps://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/resilience-project-from-page-to-podcast-to-home-school/id1513559414?i=1000513818626Dr Sophia Shih's Bruny Island Tiny Home:read an article about this idyllic escape with air bnb and video tour link noted at the end.Disclaimer: The content in this podcast is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

He works with collaborators world wide and has published over 500 academic papers in leading journals across multiple scientific fields.            I first listened to Brendon on another podcast and was fascinated by his work and translational research to help clinicians and patients in clinical practice.        In this conversation Brendon speaks about his own career journey to date. He summarises his encyclopaedic knowledge on this topic of movement and physical activity for our  mental wellbeing looking at prevention, adjective treatment in the common mental health disorders and the underpinning neurobiological, genetic and psychosocial factors contributing to why movement is such a powerful tool.  Brendon refers to the magic of movement and we learn how it can quite literally change our brain.             As both academic researcher and  practising clinician, Brendon is very familiar with the challenges of, not only, doing high quality research in his field, but also in translating this into practice. He shares some practical applications and advice for clinicians, patients and indeed all of us looking to incorporate more movement into our lives.         We discuss the current recommendations for movement physical and mental health and how less can be more particularly getting started.  I throughly enjoyed this conversation and encourage you to follow Brendon and his work on the links discussed here and listed below.More about Dr Brendon Stubbs and key links :https://www.kcl.ac.uk/people/brendon-stubbshttps://twitter.com/brendonstubbshttps://www.instagram.com/brendon.stubbs/Book: Exercise Based Interventions for Mental Illness by Dr Brendon Stubbs and Dr Simon Rosenbaumhttps://www.elsevier.com/books/exercise-based-interventions-for-mental-illness/stubbs/978-0-12-812605-9Other Links :https://www.penguin.com.au/books/the-joy-of-movement-9780525534129Subscribe to the podcast :https://www.themindfullmedicpodcast.comhttps://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-mind-full-medic-podcast/id1513559414Disclaimer: The content in this podcast is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.

        In S 2 E 8 I am delighted to speak to Dr Dan Dworkis MD PhD FACEP.  Dan is an Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at LAC and USC and is based in Santa Monica, California. He is notably the founder, creator and inspiration behind the Emergency Mind Podcast http://bit.ly/emindpod and most recently the Emergency Mind book  http://bit.ly/emindbook.       In this episode I have the opportunity to delve into his emergency mind.We discuss the evolution of his own journey as an Emergency physician and his passion for the subject of application of knowledge under pressure and how we might seek to improve this as any learned skill.        In the Emergency Mind podcast Dan explores this, taking experience and examples from experts in the ER and other fields and disciplines. This has allowed him overtime to develop mental models and cognitive frameworks that we might use and apply ourselves. In this conversation Dan explores some of the concepts, as relayed in the book in more detail. ( Sangfroid, Wabi-Sabi, Train your Tired Moves, Humans not Robots) He uses his own pursuit of mastery and love of martial arts  as an example to demonstrate the application and art of practice in performance science and psychology.       This is the book he wishes he had had as a trainee emergency physician but I feel it has continued applicability across the professional journey and indeed in general as we seek to improve our ability to respond to the challenges of our lives.         "Absorb what is useful, Discard what is not, Add what is uniquely your own"Bruce Lee Links to the Emergency Mind:https://twitter.com/TheEmergMindhttps://www.emergencymind.comBook: http://bit.ly/emindbookPodcast: http://bit.ly/emindpodThe Mind Full Medic Podcast website : https://www.themindfullmedicpodcast.comSubscribe, rate and review the podcast on iTunes here : https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-mind-full-medic-podcast/id1513559414Disclaimer: The content in this podcast is not intended to constitute or be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment.
