You Don’t Have to Be Tired All the Time
By David Doolittle

Fatigue story photoYou’re irritable. You’re clumsy. You can’t remember things you know you know. You can’t concentrate. Chances are you’re just plain tired — because you work hard in a high-stress environment and put in long hours every day.

But fatigue is not what you want to take into the exam room, or the surgical suite, or even home to your family. Being too tired to perform well directly affects your patients, your colleagues, and your quality of life. 

Turn to TMA’s course Addressing Fatigue in Physicians to learn how to modify your personal habits and your environment so you can manage fatigue. 

The course is available as a one-hour live presentation, online (pdf version), and a home study. It includes 1 AMA PRA Cat. 1 Credit™ and 1 ethics credit.

If you wish to order a home study, please contact the TMA Knowledge Center for prepayment at (800) 880-7955 or email knowledge[at]texmed[dot]org.

And here’s something to keep a smile on your face: TMA is offering 20 percent off all CME throughout January, so act soon.
