Tackling healthcare worker burnout, stress and anxiety: Fireside chat with Cigna's behavioral strategy director

Thursday, June 16th, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

The pandemic has taken an immense toll on healthcare workers' emotional and mental health. Forty-seven percent of physicians reported feeling burned out last year, up from 42 percent in 2020, a Medscape survey found. A separate poll from the American Nurses Foundation found 46 percent of nurses younger than 35 said they are not emotionally healthy.


Join us for a discussion on addressing healthcare worker behavioral health, including physician/employee burnout, stress and anxiety. Jason Youngblood, behavioral strategy director and clinical leader at Cigna, will also share examples of health systems that have successfully implemented tools to combat these challenges. Audience questions will be welcomed.


In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Strategies to address healthcare worker mental health

  • Tools to help build employee resilience

  • How one health system implemented a program focusing on responding to a mental health crisis
