DFTB, T. Mentoring in Medicine: Melanie Rule at DFTB18, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2019. Available at:
Mel Rule is one of the founding members of the extraordinary WRaPEM group. They are a group of passionate educators and clinicians waim to bring back Wellness, Resilience and Performance coaching for the everyday doctor.
So what is mentoring? It is not sitting around having a coffee and a chat. It’s a developmental partnership where one person shares skills, experience and perspective in order to facilitate personal and professional growth.
This talk was recorded live at DFTB18 in Melbourne, Australia. With the theme of ‘Science and Story‘ we pushed our speakers to step out of their comfort zones and consider why we do what we do. Caring for children is not just about acquiring the scientific knowhow but also about taking a look beyond a diagnosis or clinical conundrum at the patient and their families.
