Breakout session two - Doctors treating Doctors 

Breakout session two is on the theme of doctors treating doctors.Exploring his experience of becoming a patient, Dr Kevin Connolly, a retired paediatrician shares his story with illuminating insights for when the tables turn and the doctor becomes the patient.

From research we know that doctors tend to neglect their symptoms, and may consult their family and friends before exploring the normal route to healthcare. Doctors who become patients may also have feelings of shame, humiliation, embarrassment, and at times tend to hide their illness status. However, learning to cope with a new status can also be an empowering experience.
