Opportunities for personal growth

Introduction

Each palliative care call has lessons to teach and the potential to improve your practice in the process. There’s always something new to learn. Some calls may cause you to reflect on your own life and priorities. Adopting a position of openness and curiosity will improve your practice. Giving yourself the time and space to reflect on the meaning these calls have for you professionally and personally will help you become a more sophisticated, mature and well-rounded clinician.
