Episode 17: Circling Back to Ourselves with Antra Boyd, RN and Karen DiMarco, RN

The nurses are in the house! Join Dr. Amy with nurses Antra Boyd and Karen DiMarco of RNegade as we have some deep conversations about trauma in the field of nursing. These women are real, loving, disrupters in the world of healthcare. RNegade KAREN DIMARCO  Karen DiMarco is a bit of a wild card. She believes that authenticity serves as the laxative for connection, communication, and inspiration. She writes her bio in the 3rd person like a normal arsehole, but she’ll tell you about it (see what she did there?) Curiosity is her superpower, and creativity is the machete she uses to cut through the antiquated bullschizzle of how the world says things ‘ought to be.’ When she can’t think of a word to say precisely what she means, she’ll make one up: Memorgasm - the feeling/sound that is made when one suddenly remembers the name of a person/song/ or “what did I come in this room for again?” Since this slashie mouthful doesn’t quite cover the CV: “R.N./transformational coach/published health researcher & educator/foul-mouthed humorist,” she goes by ‘RNegade.’ Although Karen is a girl with a dragon tattoo, she’s really quite kind. The thing that makes her leap out of bed in the morning like some deranged fairy godmother whose wings were crumpled by too many My Pillows, is helping others to achieve their greatest level of health, happiness, and human potential…preferably with lots of snort-laughing along the way.  ANTRA BOYD  Antra is the only one here who is actually having someone else write her bio in the 3rd person. She is formidable. Like, you’re as grateful to have her ‘at your side,’ as you are relieved that she’s not on an opposing team. Yet, those pretty blue eyes will start pissing tears if you do the least kind thing for her, or show her a TikTok of a baby cow.  Antra’s insecurity-inducing professional resume: Navy veteran, 20+ year clinical nursing experience in the OR, and wickedly talented entrepreneur in the emerging role of Private Patient Advocacy — was cultivated from the compost of challenge, triumph, and transformation that her life has so abundantly provided.  Those experiences shaped her unique way of seeing the world. “The status quo is a snoozefest. What puts a fire under my ass is shaking shit up, a nice glass of red wine, and hanging out with my tribe of trouble-makers.”  WARNING: boxes, knowns, ‘shoulds', 'ought-tos', and ceilings WILL be blown-up and crashed-through. Antra is an Original RNegade.

Episode 13: Balancing Tolerance with Impatience: A Conversation with Bruce Perry, MD, PhD

Friends - join me for a discussion with Dr.  Bruce Perry where we talk about all-things trauma, relationships, meaningful medicine, how to begin tough conversations and the importance of this work.Dr. Perry is the Principal of the Neurosequential Network, Senior Fellow of The ChildTrauma  Academy and a Professor (Adjunct) in the Departments of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the  Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago and the School of Allied Health,  College of Science, Health and Engineering, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Victoria Australia.  Over the last thirty years, Dr. Perry has been an active teacher, clinician and researcher in children’s  mental health and the neurosciences holding a variety of academic positions. His work on the impact  of abuse, neglect and trauma on the developing brain has impacted clinical practice, programs and  policy across the world. Dr. Perry is the author, with Maia Szalavitz, of The Boy Who Was Raised As  A Dog, a bestselling book based on his work with maltreated children and Born For Love: Why  Empathy is Essential and Endangered. Dr. Perry's most recent book, What Happened to You?  Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing, co-authored with Oprah Winfrey, was released  in 2021.  Dr. Perry has conducted both basic neuroscience and clinical research. His neuroscience research  has examined the effects of prenatal drug exposure on brain development, the neurobiology of  human neuropsychiatric disorders, the neurophysiology of traumatic life events and basic  mechanisms related to the development of neurotransmitter receptors in the brain. His clinical  research and practice has focused on high-risk children. This work has examined the cognitive,  behavioral, emotional, social, and physiological effects of neglect and trauma in children,  adolescents and adults. This work has been instrumental in describing how childhood experiences,  including neglect and traumatic stress, change the biology of the brain – and, thereby, the health of  the child.  His clinical research over the last twenty years has been focused on integrating emerging principles  of developmental neuroscience into clinical practice. This work has resulted in the development of  innovative clinical practices and programs working with maltreated and traumatized children, most  prominently the Neurosequential Model©, a developmentally sensitive, neurobiology-informed  approach to clinical work (NMT), education (NME) and caregiving (NMC).

Episode 7: Discussing Physician Burnout with Dr. Dominic Corrigan of Physician’s Anonymous

In this podcast, Dr. Amy sits down with Dr. Dominic Corrigan, a psychiatrist with a very personal story to share.  Physician burnout and physician suicide is a relatively unknown issue in the world of medicine.  This stems from many factors, including stigma and a general unwillingness to talk about the subject. Dr. Amy and Dr. Corrigan explore preconceived notions about physicians and with a candid and heartfelt conversation about the personal journey that Dr. Corrigan himself took, leading up to the culmination of him creating Physiciansanonymous.org.  The website takes aim at providing resources for physicians and providers to have someone to reach out, for whatever the reason.  This may be after a horrible ER shift where they witnessed a child's death, or the culmination of years of absorbing patient’s problems with no outlet for their own. This episode will ring true for almost anyone who works in healthcare.  May want to grab tissues and find someone to talk with after this one.

In this episode, Dr. Amy has a candid discussion with Dr. Eric Wiser, a physician with a wide ranging background from the jack of all trades rural medicine world to education roles at the world famous Oregon Health and Science University.  During the course of his career, Dr. Wiser always tried to break down barriers for patients and families to educate, advocate for, and deliver compassionate care. During the podcast, Dr. Amy and Dr. Wiser open up the conversation about the differences in rural versus urban medicine, especially as it relates to trauma informed care.  Dr. Wiser found practicing in a rural area led to shared traumas across many of his patients due to the intimate nature of his practice.  He also discusses the challenges of treating his friends and family when there were not other options available.   Lastly, they discuss many ways to explore trauma with patients, and techniques that will yield results.  This includes creating space, sitting back, and seeing what happens.  It also helps to have a box of tissues on hand!

Episode 3: Dr. Ken Ginsburg Creating Compassion through Relationships

In her debut podcast launch, Dr. Amy engages in a riveting discussion with Dr. Ken Ginsberg, a pediatrician with 35 years of experience.  Dr. Ginsberg is a resiliency expert who focuses on building trauma awareness in medicine, establishing tools and resources for providers, and shifting the lens from what is “wrong” with patients to what is “good and right” with them.   During this hour-long podcast, you will get to explore a different perspective when it comes to treating kids who have experienced trauma.  More importantly, you’ll learn how to reframe the conversation with your patients and explore positive ways to deal with trauma.  You’ll learn that you can advocate for resiliency, instead of framing a patient as “broken”  You’ll also learn not to take it personally and how to avoid changing the narrative for your own perspective.  As providers, you will need to be there for the critical moments in your patient's lives.  This captures all the elements of your patients’ lives, whether it be the good or the bad.  However, after listening to this podcast, you’ll learn how to focus on the good, so that when the bad does happen, your patients will be well equipped to handle it.   Dr. Ginsburg is the Founding Director of CPTC and Professor of Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He travels the world speaking to a parent, professional, and youth audiences and is the author of 5 award-winning parenting books including a multimedia professional toolkit on “Reaching Teens.” CPTC follows his strength-based philosophy and resilience-building model.

How is Parkinson’s Disease Diagnosed? And How Is a Care Team Created? Parkinson’s disease can’t be diagnosed through a simple blood test or scan. After a referral from a primary care doctor, it often takes visits to a neurologist or movement disorder specialist before receiving a clinical diagnosis.
