Can a meditation garden in a hospital courtyard help doctors recover from 28-hour shifts? Will resilience workshops help resident physicians on 100+hour work weeks? Could yoga reverse workplace bullying? Probably not.
Seems wellness programs are popping up all over our hospitals and medical schools to help our doctors feel well. Can wellness programs stop human rights violations in medicine?
I turned this question over to Facebook:
Human rights violations + wellness programs = ________________.
Band-Aid on severed carotid
Lipstick on a pig
Another day as a resident
Human rights violations + wellness programs are like using air fresheners in the toilet. All you get is potpourri scented shit
Rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic
Victim blaming for not doing wellness well enough
Same shit, different day
