About the Session
If leaders, their staff or their colleagues are feeling physically and/or emotionally depleted, it is probably because the level of emotional exhaustion in healthcare workers is at an all-time high. This situation is creating a dangerous practice environment. Interventions to help reduce burnout among healthcare professionals have become a national priority. It is imperative that we make our health system safer for our patients and our practitioners. Dr. Bryan Sexton uses his NIH funding to run randomized clinical trials that reduce burnout in healthcare workers. His research instruments have been used around the world in over 3,000 hospitals, in 30 countries. Join Dr. Sexton to identify the impact of stress, fatigue and burnout on care providers and the relationship of burnout with clinical errors and quality of patient care. Review the most robust research on healthcare worker burnout/engagement and evidence based methods to improve care quality and clinical outcomes.
