Healthcare is in a dynamic state of change and healthcare providers must navigate through both clinical and professional issues, and stay on top of new technologies in the field. TED talks are short presentations, usually under 20 minutes, which focus on how the power of ideas can change the world. The subjects cover everything from technology, treatments, work issues, psychology, and more. Here, we have picked 4 TED Talks that could be helpful for healthcare providers. The focus on this edition is on technology and on how to manage stress in healthcare. We encourage you to take 20 minutes out of your day and make a change in your life! Eric Dishman: Healthcare should be a Team Sport In this Talk, Eric Dishman focuses on care coordination and technology. As a healthcare researcher for Intel, he concentrates on finding ways in which technology can solve healthcare issues. He believes with better care coordination, including having the patient be a part of that team, healthcare can have fewer mistakes, better diagnoses, and better treatment of the patient as a whole. “So these three pillars of personal health, care anywhere, care networking, care customization, are happening in pieces now, but this vision will completely fail if we don’t step up as caregivers and as patients to take on new roles.” Kelly McGonigal: How to Make Stress Your Friend Psychologist Kelly McGonigal addresses the understanding of stress as a public health enemy, but, according to new research, perhaps only if you perceive your stress responses as bad. In the stressful world of healthcare delivery, try to see if you can take this research, and Ms. McGonigal’s suggestions, and use stress to your advantage. “How you think and how you act can transform your experience of stress. When you choose to view your stress response as helpful, you create the biology of courage. And when you choose to connect with others under stress, you can create resilience.” Nigel Marsh: How to make work-life balance work With more focus than ever placed on “having it all,” devoting the right time to a productive career and to a satisfying home life is a constant struggle for many, and a surrendered war to some. Nigel Marsh discusses how important work life balance is and offers some actual suggestions on how to achieve it, beyond casual Friday or an extra week of vacation. “Being more balanced doesn’t mean dramatic upheaval in your life. With the smallest investment in the right places, you can radically transform the quality of your relationships and the quality of your life.” Daniel Kraft: Medicine’s future? There’s an app for that Daniel Kraft speaks to the future of healthcare technology, and innovation in medicine, from tools to tests to apps, and how these new technologies can address real healthcare challenges such as the costs associated with an ageing population and fragmentation of care “So in close, as you think about technology trends and how to impact health and medicine, we’re entering an era of miniaturization, decentralization and personalization. And I think by pulling these things together, if we can start to think about how to understand and leverage these, we’re going to empower the patient, enable the doctor, enhance wellness and begin to cure the well before they get sick.” We hope you enjoy these videos.
