As 2021 gets off to a jump start, it is impossible not to have some reflection on the previous year. It is a year that will have various changes for almost everyone in the future. While the future is not something that cannot be definite, it is with great hope that this new year will bring positive changes and healthy lives. As medical professionals, we must continue to work together to provide the best care and treatment for victims/survivors.
Our position can be difficult emotionally as well as physically. Remember to take care of yourself. We can only provide the best care if we remember to take care of ourselves. Regardless of your schedule, try to take at least a few minutes every day to reflect as a person. We should not only advocate for our patients but for ourselves as well.
This year will be just as unique as the last. We have it in us to make this year great despite any pushback we may have. Together we will continue with our platform as forensic nurses. We will remain educated and continue to educate. We will remain tight, as we are each a link in a long chain of AWESOMENESS!
Happy 2021 and remember to reflect.
