    There is no doubt you have experienced extreme stressors in 2020, and now is a great time to determine where you want to be in the new year. Discussing New Year’s resolutions can feel somewhat cliche but can absolutely have benefits. 

    It’s a common practice for physicians to “cope alone.” Your schedules are chaotic, your expectations are near unreachable, and looking forward to retirement is sometimes your only effective strategy for coping with the turmoil.

    Has your love for your career waned a bit? Are you struggling to connect to your “why”? Indeed, you have been through a lot in the past year. With COVID and the overwhelming demands on you physically, emotionally, and psychologically, it’s not uncommon to lose touch with your purpose and the joy for your career. 

    We want you to know that you are not alone. You are among others who feel the same. Since we began our partnership with TAFP, one of the common reasons family physicians have sought treatment is due to work overload, stress, and a need to reconnect to the joy of their job and family.

    The Texas Immunization Registry will host a series of live webinars to help providers identify data quality issues and how to resolve them using registry resources for accurate reporting. The webinar is for organizations reporting COVID-19 immunizations via data exchange.

    The registry is offering multiple sessions to allow for flexible attendance. Each session will cover the same content. A recording of the webinar will be made available at a future date on the DSHS Registry webpage under “User Training.” Each webinar session has a maximum capacity of 900 attendees, and you should register for only one session. If all sessions are full, we recommend referring to the DSHS Registry web page later for the posted recording.
