Person centred care and learnings from Social Work with Dunja Radosavljevic
In this episode of HPN Liam chats with Dunja, social worker and case manager about her accidental journey into working with her heart in social work. Together they unpack what it means to listen to the inner voice and passion of yourself and how doing good in an area that does good for your heart also, is rewarding on so many levels.
As a nurse health care professional, both Liam and Dunja dissect the cost of doing the job of caring and talk about how to confidently and politely call out bad behaviours in the workplace so it can be a safe and feel good working environment for everyone.
Dunja gifts us with two tools that social workers have, to benefit your relationship with yourself and your patients showing us that invaluable insight identifying your values can be have in the job and that using it as a guiding light when you are tired or close to burnout can be incredibly beneficial.
Lastly, Liam and Dunja dispel the myth of hierarchy and that people in senior roles, or who have worked for longer or are older than you, know better… a lesson both health professionals have learnt on the job.
