Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to engage in deep conversations with nurses and interprofessional colleagues about the pandemic, stress and self-care for our podcast series on resilience. I learned so much from the wisdom and compassion that my colleagues shared when reflecting on their experiences coping with stress. I reflect on those conversations often and draw on the lessons that I learned from this incredible group of people. To properly care for our patients, we must first take care of ourselves and each other. I’m proud to be part of such a thoughtful and supportive community during these challenging times.
