challenges and solutions to being a neurologist
Being a neurologist is not an easy job. A job in the neurology field comes along with tremendous amounts of stress and emotional trauma. A neurologist must be someone who is dedicated, encouraging and compassionate to his/her job. Neurologists are specialized physicians who diagnose, treat, and help prevent disorders of the nervous system. Neurology is a very reputable job, however, two challenges a neurologist might face are emotional trauma, and surgical risks from job difficulty.
The first challenge a neurologist faces is the high amounts of emotional trauma. On a daily basis, a neurologist works with people who are in pain, and require immediate attention. Neurologists often work with medical cases, including seizures, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease, which is are all very sorrowful issues. In several cases, a neurologist must inform family members that a loved one has been impacted by a deteriorating disease that may even lead to death. A job in the neurology field comes with a lot of stress and depression because a neurologist must help families through devastating neurological illness, and also help families accept developmental problems that will negatively impact their child's life, and even cause death. Seeing another individual in pain with no other treatment than death, gives a lot of emotional stress to a neurologist. In order to cope with the emotional trauma of being a neurologist, EFT, and yoga may be effective solutions. EFT, short for “Emotionally Focused Therapy”, is a potential way of relieving an individual of any stress they might be coping with. This therapy is based on methods which help an individual accept, express, and transform emotions. It helps individuals focus on the “positive” things of life. Yoga may be another possible solution in order to cope with the emotional trauma one faces as a neurologist. Yoga is a physical way of relieving any internal issues one might be facing. Yoga uses methods which help the mind focus through relaxation and meditation. Emotional trauma is one of the most difficult challenges a neurologist faces, however, EFT and yoga are two very effective methods in order to relieve stress and uplift your mood.
Another challenge a neurologist might face at his/her job is the complexity of the job. Being a neurologist is not an easy thing because the job has a lot of demands. In fact, neurologists are the most common doctors who are sued by patients. Neurology is a very, very complex medical practice, therefore one mistake could ultimately cause irreversible damage to patients. Neurologists often face a lack of respect because they are often blamed by their patients for death or disability. Neurological surgeries involve a moderate to high level of risk to patients, because the surgery location is the brain and spinal cord, which are two of the most sensitive areas of the human body. In order to ensure that this issue does not persist in his/her career, a neurologist can make sure his/her medical practice is accurate and up-to date. Making sure that a neurologist is always correctly following medical procedures is critical in order to ensure full accuracy of the job.
In conclusion, being a neurologist comes with several advantages, but on the other hand, neurology also has a few drawbacks which include emotional trauma, and job complexity. In order to overcome these challenges, EFT, yoga and continued education are all very effective solutions.
