Thriving After Life-Changing Trauma, w/Dr. Pete Poullos | Incident Repor...
Tragedy and a near death experience are reported in one of the latest "Incident Report", a weekly vlog hosted by Zubin Damania, known affectionately by "ZdoggMD" Dr Z, as he is often called, and his crew consisting of Mrs Dr Zdogg (also a physician), ZPop, and the ZPups bring an entertaining yet highly relevant to the public in an easily understood format. Even doctors may understand it all.
All of us experience these incidents on a daily basis.
This episode reveals the breadth of support necessary following a serious injury
1. Financial, personal resources, health plan, family, go fund me (yes people use this mechanism for appealing for dollars.) Dr Poulos raised $ 150,000 dollars to cover extended physical therapy and non covered medical expenses
2 Social support, family, friends, fellow employees
3. Life-style changes, including future employment
4. Long term emotional support and physical rehabilitation
4. Grit ! This last one is probably the most important, to maximize the final outcome and adjust to overwhelming challenges.
