Surviving clinical rounds: tips and tales from a pediatric hematologist-oncologist
Today’s guest is Maha Al-Ghafry, a pediatric hematologist-oncologist who shares her experience with clinical rounds.
As health care professionals, we know the struggle of clinical rounds, where you receive patient handoffs, pre-round on EHR, physically pre-round on patients, and then move onto some form of “proper” rounds. You order medications, call consults, and try to avoid taking breaks even when you need to hydrate or use the bathroom.
Maha questions why they even call them rounds, as they often feel like you’re going round and round in circles, and even as an attending, it’s just as arduous. And then there’s always that one relative who finds your group and begins screaming about the care of their loved one.
Join us as Maha shares her experience as a pediatric hematologist-oncologist and how she navigates through clinical rounds.

With so many demands on their time, physicians today report record levels of burnout. Burnout is caused by many factors, one of which is clinical documentation. Studies indicate physicians spend two hours documenting care for every hour spent with patients.

The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience, or DAX for short, is an AI-powered, ambient clinical intelligence solution that automatically captures patient encounters securely and accurately at the point of care. Physicians who use DAX have reported a 50 percent decrease in documentation time and a 70 percent reduction in feelings of burnout, and 83 percent of patients say their physician is more personable and conversational.
