FR4 - Healing Ourselves First: Resilience as our Greatest Clinical Competence

Mar 8, 2019 11:00am ‐ Mar 8, 2019 12:00pm


The uncertain financial and regulatory climate we currently face can make our already stressful jobs that much more challenging and increases the risk of burnout and compassion fatigue. This presentation will review what resilience can teach us about thriving, rather than simply surviving, through change and challenge and how those techniques can support healthy and effective professionals and teams that can model what we attempt to teach patients and families.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the research behind and tenets of resilience.
  • List the risks for burnout and compassion fatigue.
  • Analyze the research about and contributors to compassion fatigue.
  • Incorporate personal and professional practices to leverage that information for the creation of healthier and more productive teams.
