368: Badass Spotlight with Dr. Lesley Sweeney

I think it’s so important that we do this work to overcome burnout, together. That’s why I created Burntout to Badass. Luckily, I’m not the only one who thinks this. I’ve had a blast getting to know Dr. Lesley Sweeney on her badass journey. Listen as she shares her story and how Burntout to Badass has helped her take action toward a whole new life.  Dr. Sweeney had an hour-long commute to her old job. During the commute she listened to this podcast! She loved the fantastic interviews and all of the insights I share about burnout but also about the other options that exist to fulfill your needs.  After a few months of listening, she scheduled a call and decided it was time to take her life back. She went through the group coaching version of Burntout to Badass and she hasn’t looked back since.  In fact, she used her allowed CME time to take some of the modules and spend time with her kids.  She was nervous about investing in the course, but the result was more than she could have imagined. Dr. Lesley is now taking an extended sabbatical and exploring other options for making money and supporting her family. If you’ve been on the fence about joining us in this cohort of Burntout to Badass, you won’t want to miss a minute of Dr. Lesley’s experience.  “You have your blinders on and you're just like I’m going down this track and I know this track is going to end in a trainwreck but I don’t know how to get off the track.” Dr. Lesley Sweeney   In this episode: [01:25] Welcome to the show, Dr. Lesley Sweeney!

367: Chronic Pain with Andrea Moore DPT

If I were to say that pain doesn’t actually exist, what would you think? What if I told you that there’s no such thing as a pain receptor, there is only the message your brain is sending you about the situation you’re in? Sounds insane right? It’s not! Listen in as I chat with Andrea Moore about chronic pain and what the underlying cause is for most people.  Andrea and I have known each other for many years now. We’ve both been in masterminds together and we’ve enjoyed building our businesses alongside each other. Honestly, when I found out that there was another physician in the room with me, I got super excited.  One of the things Andrea has struggled with most of her life is chronic pain, and the crazy thing is she didn’t even know it was weird. Ever since she was a young kid she’s had chronic joint pain all over her body. So much so that simply sitting through lectures for school was extremely uncomfortable.  It was this lived experience that informed her decision to go into first physical therapy and now she’s a doctor studying the role of the brain in our response to pain.  Listen as she shares her story and gives us some great takeaways on the things that could be contributing to chronic pain in our bodies. Believe it or not, it’s all about mindset. That’s not to say that this applies to everyone, there are certainly cases that don’t fit the mold, but overall, our brain is responsible for our pain.  So what makes our brain send out those signals? Listen in to learn more.  “Pain is a message our body is trying to send us.” Andrea Moore DPT   In this episode: [02:00] Welcome to the show, Dr. Andrea Moore! [02:15] She shares who she is and what she does. [04:47] Listen as she discusses why chronic pain is her mission. [06:14] Andrea talks about her journey with chronic pain. [10:03] I share my journey with chronic pain. [12:33] She discusses the three main pieces she likes to explore with people. [16:04] “For many women being connected with their bodies is perceived by the nervous system as inherently unsafe.” [18:04] Chronic pain is a sensitization of the nervous system. [23:01] My symptoms didn’t improve when I did all the external things I could do, then I had to look for alternative ways to deal with the pain. [26:20] Medicines aren’t a great long term solution but they are a great bridge to get you ready for the inner work you need to do. [29:51] A lot of female physicians are hiding their chronic pain issues in the closet. [30:40] She shares that a lot of her clients come to her because they want to stay under the radar of the medical system. [34:40] She discusses letting our nervous system know that we are adults and to let the child part go. [37:41] She speaks about her podcast The Unweaving Chronic Pain.

366: Discovering Inside Experts With Positive Deviance with Jeff Cohen, MD

Sometimes when you’re the one with boots on the ground, seeing the devastation wrought by a pathogen, you become the person who needs to find a new path. Dr. Jeff Cohen found himself facing a spate of MRSA cases while he was still working in clinical medicine, and rather than continuing to follow outdated CDC guidelines, he used positive deviance to discover inside experts.    What does this mean?    The experts at the CDC weren’t seeing the same data or results that Jeff and his team were. So he began to sort through what each team member and group knew to come up with better solutions for reducing MRSA transmission.   They put together a series of questions to determine which underlying practices each team member was using to keep from transmitting MRSA. In fact, they surveyed the specific people who were most likely to transmit the disease, but who hadn’t.    It was using this method that they developed entirely new protocols regarding MRSA and other highly transmissible hospital pathogens.    Listen as Jeff shares more about this practice and his story. Do you think using positive deviance could help your practice address their internal processes?     “I could give up the responsibility of having the answer, I could approach this purely through a toddlers eyes and really be curious.”  Dr. Jeff Cohen In this episode: [01:20] Welcome to the show, Dr. Jeff Cohen! [01:32] He shares his background and what he’s doing now. [02:41] Listen as Dr. Cohen discusses the transformative approach of Positive Deviance. [06:40] Learn about the timeline involved with starting the conversation with PD. [15:17] After implementing some of the ideas to stop the MRSA infections they then went around to see what was helping and what wasn’t. [18:35] Some examples of where changes were made. [24:10] Dr. Cohen talks about the outcome of this PD project. [28:05] He discusses some other projects he’s done using the Positive Deviance approach. [31:25] Connect with Dr. Cohen. [32:43] Thank you for being on the show!
