For our third webcast on Building Back Better from COVID-19, we’ll look at the toll the pandemic has taken on health care workers—and what organizations can do to mitigate the impacts.
Moral injury, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and collective trauma—burnout, distress, emotional battery associated with crisis response—are among the gravest threats to our health care system as our workforce delivers care on the frontlines of a pandemic.
To shed light on this issue, our on-demand webcast will feature two thought leaders who will offer insight and pathways to solutions: Paul DeChant, MD, MBA, the Chief Transformation Officer for Berkeley Research Group (BRG) Healthcare Transformation Institute, and Mary Koloroutis, MSN, RN, the Chief Executive Officer of Creative Health Care Management.
Topics they’ll discuss include:
- Why the ongoing, daily collective trauma suffered by the health care workforce will have long-term effects on health and wellbeing, as well as recruitment and retention
- How the COVID-19 outbreak has compounded the threat to our health care providers and frontline staff already suffering from exhaustion and depersonalization
- How to identify and understand the underlying causes and key drivers of burnout and address root causes of moral injury
- Our path forward and ways to protect, defend, and support our clinicians and broader health care workforce—and rejuvenate their call to medicine
