I really appreciated all the activities today, but particularly the morning session. Watching Michael’s video about informed consent, or lack thereof, was infuriating. I came away from that so upset that there is such a strong culture of abusive and arrogant assertion of power over those who are most vulnerable. It is disheartening and scary that some people in our profession, even if they don’t represent the majority, have strayed so far from the compassion and caring nature that the profession should be modeled around. It is scary that we as a profession and a culture have let this happen to our colleagues. I am motivated to make sure I maintain compassion, respect, and advocacy for my patients; but also uphold and foster this culture in my peers.
