Given the current crisis and challenges we are all facing today and the weeks to come, it is inevitable that we will have difficult conversations.
Conversations with co-workers who are acclimating to remote work, conversations with groups of people who are not respecting social distancing, and conversations between and among healthcare professionals.
It is understood that we will limit access to healthcare facilities. Whether to visitors or “non-essential” staff. The conversations aren’t easy – they’re not supposed to be.
But we can decide how we have them. Too often, there is apathy or lack of understanding for each other. There is another way – with empathy and with respect.
This is how we should always do things.
