Caring for Caregivers:
Making the Case for Clinician Wellbeing & Resilience
Friday, May 3, 2019 8 a.m. -2 p.m.
Healthcare’s disruptive forces are putting unprecedented stress on caregivers and the broader healthcare workforce. From onerous regulatory requirements to difficult workplace and societal issues, challenges arise every day, adding to burnout and lowered morale. With emerging new research and creative ideas, some healthcare organizations are tackling clinician wellbeing as a top-level priority. Development of resilience training and the creation of new executive-level Chief Wellness Officer roles are examples. Some healthcare organizations are even promoting the concept of joy at work. Join us at this year’s forum, where we’ll look at the importance of clinician wellbeing, and how healthcare organizations can be proactive and innovative to create a better environment for both workers and their patients.
