About Cory's Book

PERMISSION TO CARE

Building a Healthcare Culture that Thrives in Chaos

Are you tired of feeling like you aren’t permitted to connect with your patients?

Can you envision creating a less sterile healthcare experience?

Pharmacist Cory Jenks had all the elements to make a competent healthcare professional. Good looks, academic accolades, multiple board certifications, and a competitive residency. However, none of these items prepared him for truly caring for his patients in a chaotic healthcare environment, and he was struggling. After implementing lessons he learned as an improv comedian, Cory’s perspective began to shift. 

In these pages, Cory takes you through the comical and powerful tools needed to create a memorable, humanizing experience for your patients and colleagues. You’ll learn how to 

  • Prepare for the unpredictability of healthcare.
  • Find more joy in your day-to-day work.
  • Express your personality while connecting with your patients.

In whatever capacity you support patients and their families, this book will help you become a dynamic, adaptable, and empathetic caregiver.

He’ll give you the skills to provide empathetic, compassionate, and effective care while creating a workplace culture that you’ll actually enjoy.”

“I have worked and interacted with thousands of pharmacists and student pharmacists, and I know that despite their dedication to learning the hard skills needed, many enter the workforce lacking the adaptability, empathy, and mindset needed to thrive in healthcare. Cory helps create the bridge between the hard and soft skills needed to be a well-rounded healthcare professional. This book, filled with stories that will make readers laugh and self-reflect, can help set healthcare professionals and their organizations up for success in an ever-turbulent healthcare environment.”

Love your book. I share many of your experiences. Merging completely unrelated disciplines of health care and improv is genius. I’m happily shocked that U of AZ Pharmacy has included it in their curriculum. It reminds me of Scott Adams’ (creater of Dilbert cartoon) book “How to Fail at Everything and Still Win Big”. Adams explains that real innovation requires combining skills that have never been combined before. Spoiler alert: Adams admits: not very funny, terrible banker and poor artist. But the combination was a huge success. Keep up the good work Cory Jenks.

I too am a pharmacist with Improv experience. As a clinician, educator and entrepreneur, I can honestly say that the skills I learned performing Improv have been as valuable or more valuable than any others. There is no better example of this than the passion that Cory brings to this art form and his commitment to patient care. You will love this book!

Really enjoyed Cory's take on adding more open-mindedness and humor to our health care system. You can be serious in taking care of patients and have fun at it all at the same time. With all of the struggles of the health care system it's nice to encounter a more optimistic approach.
