Nutrition Made Simple Podcast Episode 88: Is The Healthcare System Broken? Two Neonatologists View On Health, Nutrition & The Medical System

In this episode, two neonatologists, Dr. Benjamin Courchia and Dr. Daphna Yasova Barbeau, discuss the importance of a patient-centered approach to healthcare that prioritizes human interaction and addresses the root causes of burnout among healthcare professionals. The guests emphasized the need for healthcare professionals to prioritize themselves and their mental wellness, with Dr. Barbeau coining the term “moral injury” to describe the psychological distress experienced by healthcare workers when their values and the ethical principles they believe in conflict with their work. They also discuss the importance of nutrition, fitness, and collaboration between healthcare professionals and fitness communities in improving the health of the population.

  • Importance of a patient-centered approach to healthcare
