The Benefit of Media Diets

More and more we hear clinicians talking about feeling distracted. If this is you, you’re not alone. In a world full of blogs, podcasts, facebook posts, instagrams, news feed, apps and more, how does a simple clinician get a break?

Do less and do what you do choose to do better.
