About this webinar

Join us on Thursday, December 16, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET, as healthcare industry leaders share their journeys to improve employee resilience and combat burnout by adding mindfulness and decompression resources to their organization’s toolboxes with the ultimate aim of retaining an engaged workforce.

As hospitals face a growing staffing and burnout crisis, leadership must get innovative in how they protect their employees from the emotional and physical stressors related to the job of caring for patients. Upticks in verbal, emotional, and physical abuse towards caregivers and staff continue to affect the workforce. Additionally, hospitals that fail to react to these issues see a decrease in caregiver empathy, and an increase in compassion fatigue and moral distress. Many clinicians have been driven to leave their jobs as a result, and those who stay are under even greater strain, unable to decompress or balance their professional and home lives.

Our speakers will discuss their unique perspectives as they found ways to break the mold and improve the Decompression scores of their staff, at a time where Press Ganey’s database showed a statistically significant decline Nationally.

During this session, we will review:

  • What is Mindfulness as an Emotional First Aid Tool
  • How to use Mindfulness strategically to address decompression and improve well-being
  • Addressing Decompression in a medical model
  • Workplace outcomes and results from implementing resilience programs
