Do you know the difference between pressure and stress? Pressure is not stress. However, the former is converted to the latter when you add one ingredient: rumination, the tendency to keep rethinking past or future events while attaching negative emotions to those thoughts. Nicholas Petrie covers this topic for executives in Harvard Business Review (Pressure Doesn't Have to Turn Into Stress, HBR, March 16, 2017).
Petrie is a senior faculty member at the Center for Creative Leadership, and the lead researcher and creator of its Change Equation, which shows leaders how to change in ways that minimize stress and maximize results. He works with CEOs and their teams to create resilience strategies for organizations.
KMA, Physicians Have another Successful Legislative Session
By Cory Meadows, Director of Advocacy & Legal Affairs, KMA
The practice of medicine in Kentucky will become a little easier thanks to legislation passed in another successful session for the Kentucky Medical Association, local medical societies and physicians throughout the Commonwealth.
With a new Republican majority in the House of Representatives, a bill establishing Medical Review Panels passed and is the first step in achieving tort reform in Kentucky. Senate Bill (SB) 4, sponsored by Sen. Ralph Alvarado, M.D., R-Winchester, requires medical malpractice cases to go before Medical Review Panels-consisting of a group of independent, expert health care providers who offer an opinion on the merit of medical malpractice cases-before they can be filed in court.
