Supporting clinicians in chaotic times – A program for protection, recovery, and resilience

Thursday, July 30th, 2020 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm CT

Earlier this year, 42 percent of physicians reported feeling "burned out." The prevalence of emotional exhaustion among clinicians was at epidemic levels before the pandemic and continues to increase as extra workload, risk of exposure, long hours, and stress levels climb.

The associated clinical consequences are severe and can include increased medical errors, risk of malpractice, and reduced patient experience scores and quality of care. The personal consequences for providers and staff can be even more damaging, including depression, self-harm, and negative impacts to families and healthcare communities. Is your organization positioned to improve the well-being of your clinical and non-clinical teams?

Join us as we share our own wellness journey, changing “reaction” to protection, recovery, and resilience. Our efforts led us to establish the Personal Sigma Initiative — not just another program but our cause and part of our mission.

Key learning points include:

  • Understand the prevalence and importance of stress and moral injury (burnout) in today's hospital environment — covering the scope and significance of clinician suicide and depression
  • Takeaway the six concrete strategies of the ApolloMD Personal Sigma Initiative to address the mental and emotional well-being of your clinical and non-clinical teams to help them become more successful both at work and at home
  • Understand the link between healthy clinicians, healthy clinical performance, and healthy patients
