The Australian Centre for Value-Based Health Care is pleased to bring you the next webinar in our webinar series, 'Uncaring: How the Culture of Medicine Kills Doctors and Patients' with Dr Robert Pearl. 

Burnout. It is a condition impacting our medical professionals at an ever increasing rate, but what are the factors leading to our clinicians burning out? Dr Robert Pearl will join us to discuss his new book “Uncaring: How the culture of medicine kills doctors and patients”. 

In this webinar, Dr Robert Pearl discusses the unseen and often toxic culture of medicine. Today’s physicians have a surprising disdain for technology, an unhealthy obsession with status, and an increasingly complicated relationship with their patients. All of this can be traced back to their earliest experiences in medical school, where doctors inherit a set of norms, beliefs, and expectations that shape almost every decision they make, with profound consequences for the rest of us.
