Dread Breaking Bad News? – Try the Orsini Way!, with Anthony Orsini, DO

Anthony Orsini, DO, is a practicing neonatologist who took what he learned from over 25 years of experience delivering tragic news to patients and their families and founded The Orsini Way, a communications training company that helps healthcare professionals and business leaders build strong relationships and navigate through the most difficult conversations and this is what we discuss. He teaches us his strategy for having difficult conversations, how and why to have a plan, what nonverbal cues to be cognizant of and he takes us through his acronym PROGRAM, to help us remember the steps. We also talk about his business and some lessons he’s learned in running it.

He recently published book titled, “It’s All in the Delivery: Improving Healthcare Starting with a Single Conversation.” He has his own podcast, “Difficult Conversations – Lessons I Learned an ICU Physician” and is a frequent speaker at medical and business conferences on the topic of compassionate communication.

“Don’t Tell Me to Calm Down!” – How to Address Patients in Distress with Kaz Nelson, MD

Kaz J. Nelson, MD, is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Board of #Psychiatry and #Neurology and serves as Vice Chair for Education in the University of Minnesota Department of Psychiatry & #BehavioralSciences at their #medicalschool. We discuss addressing #patientsindistress.  You know who I’m talking about. The patient that says that nobody understands them and nobody listens to them and goes from doctor to doctor feeling ignored and misunderstood. She has a very specific, very methodical strategy for getting them to unclench their fists, sit down and have a conversation about their care. And it doesn’t just apply to the exam room. This works for patients in distress and those who have different #treatmentexpectations and wishes. We also discuss the #divingreflex and if it is ever appropriate to just splash someone with ice-cold water.

 

Dr. Nelson is an Honors graduate of the University of Minnesota-Morris, and received her #medicaldegree and #psychiatryresidency training from the University of Minnesota Medical School. Dr. Nelson is the 2018 Minnesota #PsychiatricSociety “Psychiatrist of the Year” and a “2018 Exemplary Psychiatrist” awarded for the state of Minnesota by the National Alliance on #MentalIllness.

Bootstrap Your Next Medical App Idea with Gerald Diaz, MD, of GrepMed

Gerald Diaz, MD, is a physician, former software engineer and founder of GrepMed, a free, image-based medical reference platform that serves as a more efficient alternative to text-heavy resources. Their mission is to democratize the medical reference space to reduce clinician burnout by leveraging images to shortcut the information retrieval process.  GrepMed makes it easy for clinicians to find, share and bookmark management algorithms, checklists, decision aids, diagnostics schemas, POCUS videos, physical exam clips and much more.  GrepMed recently crossed over 800k image impressions per day and is being used in over 190 countries worldwide.

We talk about how he started to develop the app, he gives some advice for those out there with an idea for an application, what the term Ramen-profitable means and why that applies to bootstrapping your own business, and how he tries to stay on top of the search engine algorithms.

Dr. Diaz graduated from Stanford with a BS in Computer Science and worked as a software developer for 4 years before receiving his MD from St Louis University.  He completed 2 years of radiology training before switching specialties to internal medicine, completing his residency at UC Davis in 2016.  Gerald currently works full time as a hospitalist while bootstrapping the development of GrepMed as a side project.
