Live talk, session 10 – June 30, 2022: emotional well-being, mental health and the pituitary
Mental health and emotional wellness are essential topics for pituitary patients, their families, and friends. This on-demand session from last Thursday's live-talk program focuses on the challenges and opportunities when considering these issues. This is a compelling discussion from the psychological and the medical point of view about the importance of putting people's mental and emotional well-being center stage when considering the medical and psychological treatment of endocrine disorders. PWN contributor and author Linda M Rio chats with Dr. Lewis Blevis and myself about tools and resources and the need for more research and work in this critical pituitary patient care and wellness area.
Decisions made by doctors and their patients can be some of the most complicated, difficult decisions to make. This session focuses on the factors that influence medical decision-making, the impacts those decisions carry, and how the practical clinical aspects of these choices affect our everyday lives.
Semantics, or by definition, the way we relate to different meanings of words or other symbols, are essential. The words we use to communicate and inform are critical. In our session today, we discuss the semantics of pituitary medicine and underline the importance of describing things accurately.
