Self Care is Not Selfish
Addressing the state of wellness amongst Canadian Vascular Surgeons
When we chose our careers, we committed ourselves to helping others. Our clinical work reflects an armamentarium for managing complex conditions but it is the patients and the families, the difficult conversations and the invested trust, the connections and the gratitude that defines what it means to be a provider of surgical care. We also commit ourselves to our families and friends; the relationships that sustain and inspire us in different but equally important ways.
