Health Care Workforce Resilience Web Series: Register Today

December 04, 2018

Encourage your employees, particularly your physicians, advanced practice clinicians and nurses, to participate in the monthly webinar series focused on building workplace resilience for busy and stressed health care professionals. This 12-part series is jointly sponsored by the Wisconsin Medical Society and WHA and is offered complimentary to members of either organization, but pre-registration for the series is required.

The complimentary series was developed and will be presented by renowned health care workforce resilience expert J. Bryan Sexton, PhD, Director of the Duke Patient Safety Center at Duke University Health System. Each monthly topic will be engaging, evidence-based, delivered in bite-sized doses, and scalable for an audience of any size. Each session will also be recorded for participants to access at a later date. 

We recommend gathering staff for the live session each month or using the recorded session as part of a regularly scheduled staff meeting throughout 2019. One hour of continuing education credit for both physicians and nurses will be offered for each webinar whether they participate in the live event or view the recording within 30 days.

The first session, Prevalence and Severity of Burnout: Workforce Resilience as Care Quality, is scheduled for January 8. This session focuses on the concept that burnout is increasingly common and can compromise clinical and operations outcomes, but is treatable. 

Each monthly topic will include practical tools, strategies and resources for building and maintaining a resilient workforce that will be immediately applicable for all members of the health care team, regardless of role. 

Online registration is now open, and you can also view the full list of series topics and dates. Contact Jennifer Frank at 608-274-1820 with questions.
