Dr Iona Heath is to me a sage leader in understanding and rejecting the existence of "too much medicine." She is not just a philosopher and crusader for the cause, but a (retired) GP who has practiced what she preaches. Her role as a physician engenders the trust of colleagues, but it is her compassion for the patient and advocacy for people (not doctors) that resonates with me.
Every time I violate my Less is More philosophy, I aspire to do better. There are many things - including speed, need, and greed - that motivate me and my colleagues to practice too much medicine, but every day I get a little better at overcoming these.
She gave a similar, inspiring talk in Vancouver which was when I first met her. I am honoured to see that she refers to me and this site at the beginning of her talk at the Londonwide LMCs' Building Resilience: Taking Control Conference 2015. View it below:
