Getting night calls for STEMI patients to enroll them in our study for two years … I was fighting in every interview.
I printed PDF file about Quality of each hospital I went for interview - read it three times and summarized it and told the PDs about it. One PD asked me if he could keep it with him to review it!!
I searched for PDs publications - read it very frequently and I discussed that with them without being asked!!
The feedback was great to the point that one PD told me ( you looks great person and I don’t care about your step one - every one had mistakes in his life but I’m so satisfied about you so far )
