So, it’s morning and it’s time to get out of bed. The kids have to go to school, and you and your spouse have to get ready to go to work. But there’s a problem, you don’t want to get out of bed. Instead, you would rather be in bed all day long, underneath your warm covers hiding from the world.  I’ve been there. I know how it feels to dread hearing your alarm clock go off in the morning signaling that it’s time to get on with the day. It’s not a good feeling especially when you know you have to get up. If you are a mom, you can agree that if you don’t get up the entire h...

By GREG HAMMER, MD Burnout among healthcare professionals is at an all-time high. Its drivers include longer work hours, the push to see more patients, more scrutiny by administrators, and loss of control over our practice. We seem to spend more time with the electronic medical record and less time face-to-face with our patients. I have faced burnout personally. My son passed away at the age of 29, which was beyond painful. At the same time, I felt burdened by the growing number and complexity of metrics by which I was judged at work. Days in the operating room and intensive care unit seemed more and more exhausting,...

Conclusion Learning how to pay attention to our attention (meta-attention) can be transformative. Using principles from cognitive science, we can create a comprehensive approach (attention capital theory in medicine) to reclaim the meaning and joy that has been depleted from our profession. Increasing the difficulty of our work to match our skill level, delegating low-level tasks to help us focus on critical steps in our physician zone, creating rules to eliminate distractions, and noticing both the wonder and suffering around us may be more important than resilience training or wellness modules. Although well-intention...

AbstractParenthood remains one of the most gender-typed social roles in adulthood. Given gender inequality in parenting, it has been very surprising to find that parental burnout affects both mothers and fathers in equal proportion. The aim of the present study was to properly test gender effects in the nature, average level, antecedents, and consequences of parental burnout. Data were collected from a strictly matched sample of about 900 French- and English-speaking mothers and fathers. We found measurement invariance across genders and a higher average level of parental burnout among mothers than fathers. We also found t...

We report on a 56-year-old male who was found dead on railroad tracks, equipped with overhead high-voltage power lines (15,000  V AC). Apparently, the body had been hit by a passing train and completely severed at the mid-abdominal level. Based on this apparently unequivocal finding, the police initially assumed a fatal railway accident or suicide. However, close examination of the deceased’s clothes revealed heat damag e to at least four overlying layers of clothing in different locations. The rubber soles of his heavy leather shoes showed small holes in blackened areas underneath the toes. Furthermore, bo...
