The Power of Connection to Drive Well-Being - Kathryn Cziraky, MD

In this episode, Dr. Cziraky and I talk about her personal and practice transformation through a shift from transactional to relationship-based care, both with her team members and her patients. We talk about how a drive toward efficiency had left her feeling depleted and disconnected from her work. In early 2020, Dr. Cziraky was introduced to the work of the Institute for Healthcare Excellence through the National Taskforce for Humanity in Healthcare, which helped her embrace positive emotions and a more relational model of work and care, which complemented and completed her drive for sustainable and effective care practice. Dr. Cziraky shares the impact of this transition on her work, her life, and her team’s ability to weather the challenges of COVID-19.
