I listened intently. It was hard at times when they relay on concerns without trying to fix them, which many of us are driven to do. A few concerns expressed were tied to the past which we need to let go. I experienced many emotions related to the dialogue and what will be the future of rural medicine.
I scribbled a few notes from this morning related to the future.
- Patients first!
- Make sure there is a common ideology and goals (SCRMC and the medical group).
Differentiate based on innovation and creativity.
- Let go of things we can't change and focus on the things we can.
- Remove Sacred Cows.
- Listen and Understand!
