Do No Harm: Film Screening and Discussion

September 17, 2019

Physician suicide is increasing to epidemic proportions and is a problem fueled by a misinterpretation that suicide is always related to a mental health problem, as well as the lack of understanding of the severity of the issue and the subsequent resources needed in order to treat physicians in distress. "Do No Harm" is a film which highlights this issue as a means to educate staff on the subject of physician suicide and other related topics.

This activity will consist of the screening of the film followed by a panel discussion led by the film director, Robyn Simon. The panel will consist of representatives from the physician and resident community who have experience and/or expertise with severe burnout/distress, and/or who have had experience with colleagues or residents/students in distress.
