The Doctor Sparkle toolkit
DOCTOR SPARKLE TOOLKIT
How can a doctor provide the best care, if they lack the opportunity to care for themselves? What if we could help doctors transform their everyday practices to find their passion again?
We interviewed 6 doctors at different stages of their profession, from medical students to a retired surgeon, and understood their paths from sparkling and fully enjoying their work, to sleep-walking through their daily chores; what were the key milestones throughout their careers that either motivated or frustrated them? We are using the insights to develop a toolkit for doctors to offer reflection and peer support in the form of a conversation that addresses the high rate of physician burn out.
