I’ve very thankful for the 10,000+ views of this site in its first month of existence. It’s great to know that these ideas resonate with so many.
My plan has always been to incorporate input from others on this site. Zentensivism as a concept belongs to no one, and diverse perspectives are needed. If there’s a topic under the umbrella of zentensivism that you’re passionate about, I’d love to hear your ideas.
You need not be a practicing intensivist to submit – though I would like to focus on acute care issues.
Some areas in particular that I’d like to explore:
- Perception of zentensivist principles across different cultures, countries, and resource settings
- How can allied health professionals foster the development of zentensive care units?
- How can you be a minimalist in “maximalist” situations? (e.g. ECMO, etc.)
- Bedside teaching tips for zentensivism
- Patient perspectives on zentensive care
- Diagnostic/cognitive skills that promote minimally invasive, maximally attentive care
- Case reports in minimalism
- Reducing unnecessary tests or interventions
Definitely not an exhaustive list, and I’d love to hear other ideas.
- Written work (500 – 1000 words)
- Podcast (conversational, audio or video)
If this appeals to you, please reach out to me at the contact link on the About page. Please send a pre-submission message to make sure the idea fits – I don’t want to waste your time!
