Cared to Death is a live podcast and call-in show for healthcare professionals. YOU couldn't possibly have time for self care. But if burnout and compassion fatigue are breathing down your neck, it's time to get real. Your irreverent hosts, Jamie and Jessica, take a straightforward approach to these problems and leave most of the touchy-feely stuff to the other self-help shows. We mix together some gallows humor, scholarly research, and virtual hugs to take on the dark side of healthcare. We address topics like overwhelm and exhaustion, grief, workplace issues, boundaries, strategies for self care, anxiety and depression, weird stuff like miracles and spirits, the healthcare system, navigating relationships, avoidance, denial, and backup plans. It’s a real party on our podcast. But really, we know you need to talk. // JAMIE WYMAN is a speaker and singer-songwriter, a 4th generation Montanan, a dog lover, mastermind of Cared to Death, and Executive Director of The Great Blue Song Project. She has a law degree with a focus on healthcare, an MA in Women’s Studies, and BA in psychology and french. She worked in anti-violence settings (including hospitals) for over 10 years before she burned out and changed course. She is driven by a fierce commitment to transforming the work of helping people. // JESSICA DAHLMAN is a goddess, mother, wife, friend, neighbor and registered nurse, working in the trenches at her local hospital. She has over 15 years of experience working in healthcare. Before that she was a massage therapist. Also a dog and plant lover, Jessica lives in Northwest Montana. // Go to www.CaredtoDeath.com to submit questions for the podcast in case you can't call in.
