Wednesday, October 19, 2016 | 12:00-1:00 CDT

In 2013, 40 percent of healthcare professionals reported experiencing symptoms of burnout; by 2015, this number had increased by another 6 percent. Join this unique and provocative online discussion led by David Pryor, MD, EVP & Chief Clinical Officer, Ascension, and Bridget Duffy, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Vocera Communications, Inc.. Moderated by Molly Gamble, Editor-in-Chief, Becker's Hospital Review.

This interactive online event will address these questions and more:

  • In an era with more technology than ever before, why are we burning out a generation of doctors and nurses?
  • How much has technology improved safety, quality, efficiency, and staff and patient experience?  Is it enough, or is there a higher impact that could be realized?
  • What will Ascension, as one of the largest health systems in the country, do to take a leadership role in optimizing physician and nurse well-being?
