Why our 'ED Family' Matters at Christmas and New Year
It is New Year's Eve tonight and I am at work. And whilst I would dearly love to be at home with my family, I am reminded of the fact that there is a certain pleasure and undoubtedly a privilege in being at work with my 'ED Family.' We need to nurture and cherish the relationships we have at work and we need to look out for our colleagues and friends at work, just as we would with our relatives at home. This is especially important over the winter holidays. So let's take stock of the simple truth that we need our ED family not just for clinical care, but for our own Wellness. We should raise a glass to that for we are fortunate indeed to have a team with whom we can work, laugh, cry and be together. Especially so at this time of year.
