Laughs and good vibes! Extremely curious workshop by Thedoctorwearsprada
But three days ago, still enjoying a couple of days in Paris, I received the weirdest text ever: SENSE OF HUMOR AND CLOWN WORKSHOP FOR HEALTH PROFESSIONALS. Gabi, my chief resident, always involved in a thousand projects, was now organising the most hilarious workshop ever!
No doubt I couldn’t miss that chance! So, I showed up in the Hospital of Torrejón, surrounded by complete strangers from the most different fields of health system, with José I. Ricarte, a Family Practice Doctor ready to let us wear a new pair of glasses to watch the world, our health world, from a different side.
We’ve learned that a sense of humor doesn’t really mean to laugh out loud, that a nice word or just to remember the birthday of a patient could be the greatest gift, and that a smile between needles and plasters heals more than amoxicillin!
How??? We’ve been back to our chidhood playing catch, we’ve walked down the catwalk like stars, we’ve given a thousand hugs and danced with strangers!!! My face muscles still hurt for laughing so much!
Theory and practices. Laughs. Good vibes…what else!? I can’t wait for the next event with José and the great family I’ve discovered and with whom I’ve won my big red nose. Now I am ready to make my patients ‘a little less hard’ their stay with us!
See you in the next! (because this, is addictive!)
