I am really interested in the psychology of Us – how our brains work (or not on occasion). I really believe that there is a lot we can learn from the lower points of our careers – the times when things go wrong, often through no fault of our own.
So I am planning to do a series of confessional interviews with my colleagues where we discuss these moments and then dissect them – try and get to the bottom of what went wrong, the common errors and how we might change our practice as a result.
The first “Lesson Hard Learned” comes from Dr Tor Ercleve – Emergency Physician, Cartoonist, LITFL contributor and Excel Enthusiast.
I am a GP working in Broome, NW of Western Australia. I work as a hospital DMO (District Med Officer) doing Emergency, Anaesthestics, some Obstetrics and a lot of miscellaneous primary care. Also on the web as @broomedocs | + Casey Parker | Contact
