You're a clinician. You had a patient die under your care, and now your hospital is being sued. You are not named in the lawsuit, but you are being asked to give a deposition. How much of your time is this going to take? If some lawyer sends you thousands of pages to review before scheduling multiple phone calls and prep sessions and, finally, a deposition under oath ... what do you say? What is your obligation to testify in court as a scientific expert?

Lawyers from the school-of-self-reliance tend to conduct their own expert witness searches. They figure they know what they need in an expert better than anyone else. However, a recent study shows nearly half of lawyers are ditching the do-it-yourself (DIY) model for an expert witness referral service.

This year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) classified burnout as a legitimate syndrome caused by a highly stressful working life. From feeling overwhelmed to finding it impossible to switch off, it’s an epidemic that is sweeping a world now steeped in distracting technology, information overload and privacy scarcity.

Sometimes it’s really nice to have some quiet time just to think and focus on what you want to achieve, and there’s no better time for that than summer when your workload may be a bit slower and you have a little more free time on your hands.
