Projects

Aside from writing and reading, here are some other things that fill my days with meaning:

Clinical practice:

I spend a large portion of my time buried deep in the hospital, learning from people all about people. It is one of the greatest honours to spend my time with folks who are willing to share incredibly intimate details of their life and their health with me. 

Research:

I'm just starting to dip my toes into the waters of academia and very excited to launch myself into data, analytics and a deeper understanding of our evidence-based practices.
I recently presented an abstract about photovaporisation of the prostate in patients on novel anticoagulants at the 2018 USANZ annual meeting.
I am working on a trauma audit at a former hospital and new guidelines for urological management at another former hospital.

Doctors are Human:

Some wonderful friends and I are piecing together a space where doctors can reacquaint themselves with the creativity they expressed prior to being bogged down in the stress of work. This is another way of looking at improving doctors' wellbeing. We write weekly wonderposts and share interesting articles on our Facebook page.

Writing the Way Home:

I've been very lucky to come in contact with some amazing people with wonderful life stories. I've also become aware that in this hyperconnected world, it is more and more difficult to figure out where we belong. I'm bringing together voices to remind you of home. Check out their work here and email me if you would like to contribute.

Fitness:

I'm a former body-builder, moving into retirement to focus on my academic and clinical pursuits. I still thrive on the time I spent in the gym. I've found training is the most effective way of dealing with stress. I also find the focus required for training progression has been integral to maintaining and improving my work ethic. I enjoy applying scientific knowledge to my training. I'm now moving into powerlifting, a sport that may look a lot like bodybuilding but is a polar opposite in terms of the mentality one applies.

There are some new projects on the horizon. I'm looking forward to sharing them with you.
