Well-being & Resilience for Health Care Professionals
December 8, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Description:Description: The National Academy of Medicine, through the Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-Being and Resilience, argues that patient well-being is predicated on the clinician-patient relationship which will be highly influenced by the clinician’s own well-being in the clinical encounter. The research base points to organizational and practice environment factors (among others) on the system side of the equation and personal factors, skills and abilities, on the clinician side of the equation for optimal clinician resilience. The past two years of clinical teams working under extraordinary COVID-19 circumstances have taken a heavy toll on clinician resilience and wellbeing, not to mention on resulting quality and safety of care.
This presentation will explore the National Academy of Medicine model with a particular focus on clinician factors in wellbeing. Together, in an experiential and participatory presentation, we will explore the areas of meaningful and sustaining practice along with collaborative and mindful practice. Participants will leave this training with tangible tools to navigate resilience through mindfulness, gratitude, decreased cynicism, and enhanced connection. This presentation will be built on both humanities and deepened human connections between healers.
