Dr Alisha Thomson takes trainee welfare personally. Her journey from psychiatry trainee, to patient, to a career in medical administration, is the backdrop to her scholarly project looking at after-hours workflow and its impact on registrar well-being. Listen to Alisha speak passionately about her drive to build healthy and effective workplaces in Australian hospitals. She also highlights the novice investigator’s tendency for non-specific data collection and emphasises the benefits of experienced mentors.
