Clinician & Organizational Wellness

Webinar Date: 
Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - 8:00am to 9:00am

U.S. health care clinicians are experiencing new challenges and stressors as health care systems continue to evolve and undergo changes. The way health care is delivered, paid for, and evaluated makes health care workers more vulnerable to overwork and burnout. This erosion of satisfaction and well-being affects not only clinicians, but has adverse effects on healthcare organizations' performance, including health outcomes, patient satisfaction, patient safety, and financial stability. Join us for a webinar that is designed to help educate physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, organizational leadership, and all other healthcare clinicians about coping skills and other resources available to them to deal with professional and personal changes in the workplace, changing clinical roles, and the potential for burnout.

Clinician & Organizational Wellness
During this webinar, the presenter will:
  • Provide an overview of burnout, how burnout is related to health care transformation, and how wellness and burnout are both individual and organizational responsibilities
  • Discuss ways to address burnout, individually and within organizations
  • Outline the Columbia Pacific CCO Community Wellness Program and how it is working to address burnout
