SEATTLE, April 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- TheHappyMD.com is pleased to announce the release of the Pandemic Survival Guide for Physicians. This online video training program, specifically for doctors, teaches the skills to navigate the multiple layers of the COVID-19 crisis to a safe landing in the new normal, however long that might take. The training is open for individual enrollment and volume admission packages are available for medical associations, societies and physician employers.
This is clearly one of those moments we will all look back on and say, "Remember 2020, when everything changed?" Physicians are no exception. The healthcare industry has been split in two by the pandemic - half in a life and death battle with the virus, the other half throttled back or furloughed, with red ink, pay cuts and layoffs everywhere. The old normal is gone and chaos rules: the hospitals, the economy, the small businesses on Main Street, social distancing. Nightly death tallies and political mudslinging only add to the suffering.
Doctors are at unique risk. They learn to put the patients first and lack basic self-care skills - especially at times of crisis. Navigating this dark passage will depend on learning new tools to find and hold their center, their health, their focus and happiness even when the way forward is not clear.
The Pandemic Survival Guide makes sure physicians …
Don't FREEZE like a deer in the headlights
Don't keep staring at a crystal ball that has gone dark
Don't allow themselves to get hijacked and overwhelmed by fear, frustration, anger, uncertainty and longing for a past that will never return

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM DR. DRUMMOND:
Recovery from burnout is an act of survival and a personal and professional rebirth ... the same process of survival and rebirth this pandemic is forcing on each of us. Burnout is a crisis of spirit, an internal meltdown that mandates a change of focus, direction, actions and awareness.
This pandemic is also a crisis of spirit, this time caused by an external meltdown unlike anything in our lifetimes. The layers of impact are unprecedented - infectious disease, practice disruption, economic devastation, denial of the simplest of human interactions.
It is clear that each of us must change focus, direction, actions and awareness to survive this pandemic and navigate to a far shore that is yet unseen.
