On-Demand Webinar: Preventing Healthcare Burnout
Healthcare workers are facing unprecedented levels of job burnout and chronic distress. In this webinar, we sat down with Dr. Mark Greenawald to discuss how leaders can prevent healthcare burnout.
Even before the pandemic, job burnout has been a major issue among healthcare workers. But in 2020, burnout became rampant, as frontline healthcare workers were forced to continuously put their health and well-being at risk to care for patients during COVID-19.
87 percent of emergency physicians say they've experienced more stress during the pandemic, and 72% reported more burnout.
In a recent live webinar, we invited Dr. Mark Greenawald, a professor at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, to discuss the problem of burnout and how healthcare leaders can address it. Quick preview below.
Many healthcare employees have a hard time admitting that they are exhausted and overwhelmed. But Dr. Mark Greenawald argues that strong peer connections and supportive workplaces can make a world of difference.
