Keynote Address  Friday, May 29 — Day 1 8:15-9:15, 9:20-10:20

Burned out or fired up: transforming medicine from the inside out  Dan Diamond, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor, Elson S. Floyd School of Medicine, Washington State University, Bremerton, WA, USA

We can all agree that health care professionals want to experience the joy of medicine as they deliver great care. Although a host of barriers exist, the real issue is that joy cannot be restored through programs and policies alone. Real change fuels the individual, inspires the team, and transforms the organization. This means that the way to make lasting change in health care is to start from the inside out. How do we do that? By starting with a “thriver’s mindset”.  Learning Objectives • Analyze the four mindsets frequently seen in people under pressure • Define the two dimensions that determine mindset • List the two pivotal questions that can shift mindset and empower teams

Be uncomfortable, be better: how discomfort presents an opportunity for growth Jeremie Saunders, Producer/Co-host, Sickboy Podcast, TV & Documentary Host

Sitting down with hundreds of podcast guests for over an hour each and having conversations about their health issues and their most uncomfortable realities has taught Jeremie a huge and invaluable lesson. By allowing himself to become uncomfortable, he has become a more compassionate, empathetic person and a stronger leader. When something makes us uncomfortable, we do everything we can to avoid it. But what if we faced it head on? What would we learn? How would we shift? Discomfort provides us with opportunity: to learn, to empathize, to cultivate change, to grow. Learning Objectives • Recognize laughter as a valuable form of alternative therapy • Distinguish between communication as an innate skill and as a learned skill • Define the importance of patients feeling as though they have a voice
