Today we are excited to share with you our sixth episode in our podcast series A Medicinal Mind: Wisdom and Well Being, a conversation with my dear friend, Jonathan Bartels. Jonathan has over 31 years of professional experience in the healthcare field. In 2009, Jonathan started a practice that helped transform how death is approached in healthcare both nationally and internationally. This practice is now known as “The Pause”. In this practice, healthcare providers are invited to silently honor the loss of life as a shared community that embraces diversity in unity through silence. Jonathan is a lecturer, educator and innovator dedicated to improving how healthcare and first responders care for their patients and themselves.
In our conversation you will hear Jonathan’s amazing background and how “The Pause” came to be. We will discuss the importance of cultivating resilience in medicine through the deliberate practices of self care, meditation, ritual and communal conversation. You will hear a thoughtful discussion on how organizations like the University of Virginia School of Nursing’s Compassionate Care Initiative are tackling burnout in its students at an institutional and community level. Lastly you will hear our opinions regarding the role of interprofessional activities to improve health care workers’ well being and collaborative care for patients and their families.
