Food for thought: Resilience in the face of adversity
By Karen Childress
To be human is to be occasionally faced with adversity, hardships and challenges. One day, you're happily minding your own business, and then out of the blue you're given a diagnosis you never expected, or you're named in a malpractice case, or your trusted practice manager or spouse suddenly announces his/her departure. Adversity doesn't have to be as dramatic as those examples to have a significant emotional impact. Smaller setbacks like getting into a fender-bender or having a real estate deal fall through at the last minute can wreak havoc, at least temporarily, on the psyche.

Hospital bullies pose a danger to patient safety
FierceHealthcare
Disrespectful doctors create a "bullying culture" in hospitals, which organizations must address to improve patient care, argues a column in Aeon Magazine. Mistreatment of subordinates, particularly medical students, is widespread, argues Ilana Yurkiewicz, citing one national study that found a majority of students report they were bullied in some way. Although her own experience was, for the most part, free of such mistreatment, Yurkiewicz writes, she has witnessed bullying behavior in hospitals.

Study: EHR beliefs tied to gender, personality
By Pamela Lewis Dolan
It's an established fact that for technology implementation to be successful, there needs to be some flexibility in order to meet the individual needs of those learning the new systems. Researchers at the University of Florida conducted a survey of 126 third-year medical schools to determine which personal characteristics related to their perceptions of electronic health record systems. Among their findings was that men were more likely than women to report that EHRs were easy to use. But some officials caution that it would be bad to place people in groups based on gender, culture or personality.
