Psilocybin assisted therapy, mental health, and how we doubled the size of our company
It’s been a very long time since I have jumped on the Medgeeks podcast. But, every year I share and reflect everything I have learned with the community...and this year is no different! This episode is heavily focused on mental health and the pandemic. Much of what I discuss today is based off my personal experience, which is what shaped the growth of our company. Today, I’ll be discussing: * The Pandemic * My experience with psilocybin * Why I started therapy and how it’s helped shape Medgeeks * How our company doubled in size and brought on many full time employees in a time when many businesses were laying people off. * The #1 mistake PAs and NPs make after graduation * The secret to being the absolute best clinician you can be * 4 main takeaways I learned in 2020 that changed my life It’s my hopes that I can do my small part to help squash the stigma behind mental health. After all, my fiance is a marriage and family therapist :). At the end of the episode, I ask to see if anyone is interested in discussing business and/or personal growth. If that’s you, just click the link below to sign up. If there’s enough interest, I'll hold a free virtual session, where we can work together to help you get ahead. I have nothing to sell. This is just my way of giving back: Talk soon! - Andrew p.s. The future podcast episodes will not be like this. We’ll continue to focus on evidence based medicine to help you master medicine. But, it’s my podcast and I wanted to share haha. Happy New Year!

Remote Consultations
Lisa and Sara talk to Dr Adam Abbs about remote consulting. Dr Abbs is a GP who has written a handbook about remote consulting which has been accredited by the RCGP. Remote consulting has been in our lives for quite some time now, and this doesn’t look likely to change anytime soon so we thought it was worth getting some more hints and tips to make us all the best remote consulters that we can be. We talk about common pitfalls, how to do some examinations remotely and a couple of special situations such as care homes and patients with visual or hearing impairments. **This is an amended episode from the one originally uploaded this morning as we realised that an older edit had been uploaded in error. * Primary Care Pathways Website, Remote Consulting: * EGP Learning: * Remote Consultations Handbook: * GMC Remote Consultations: * Healthier Together Website: ___ We really want to make these episodes relevant and helpful: if you have any questions or want any particular areas covered then contact us on Twitter @PCKBpodcast, or leave a comment on our really quick anonymous survey here: ___ This podcast has been made with the support of Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership, GP Excellence and Wigan CCG.
