About Organizational Well-Being in Health Care: A National Symposium:

Health care professionals have long experienced high levels of burnout, and since early 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the issue. Burnout can manifest as fatigue, impaired focus, and depersonalization resulting from emotional exhaustion symptoms that require attention so that health professionals can continue to care for our most vulnerable.

While health care workers can and should utilize self-care strategies to enhance their personal and professional lives, organizations have the responsibility to improve working conditions from the top down. When organizations adopt a culture of well-being, employees can expend their energy working rather than simply tolerating their work environment.

In this two-day symposium, attendees will learn why it is essential for health care organizations to play a role in evaluating and addressing the conditions influencing their employees’ well-being. Attendees will learn the lasting benefits organizations can experience upon investing in these values. Attendees will walk away with practical measures their organizations can implement at various levels, especially with administrative buy-in.
