The Science of Influence and Motivation @ WVHRA Meeting

Change is about trying to get individuals to change their behavior. In this session, we’ll pull from neuroscience and marketing to explain how you can get people to change their behaviors. We’ll address ways that individuals influence one another, and we’ll explain the hidden mechanisms that drive everyone. We’ll share classic research which distorts the length of lines, factors that can cause people to harm others, and ways that we’re motivated. We’ll build on the foundations of morality and land in a quirky world where we feel obligated to uphold our identities.

Extinguish Burnout: Practical Guidance for Prevention and Recovery @ AORN PERIOP RESET
Apr 24 @ 2:10 pm – 2:55 pm
Extinguish Burnout: Practical Guidance for Prevention and Recovery @ AORN PERIOP RESET

Everyone in healthcare is experiencing increased demands on their time, resources, and energy; this, combined with systems that are not designed to support the expanding daily work, has resulted in increased rates of burnout. While burnout affects all aspects of healthcare, it is frequently perceived as someone else’s problem. Individuals feel like they cannot cope with the demands of their life and be effective at their work. Too often, they don’t want to ask for help, because they don’t want anyone to know they are experiencing burnout. In this session, we’ll review the classic factors leading to burnout and distill them into a model of burnout focused on perceived personal efficacy and personal agency. Pulling research and writings from many disciplines, you will learn how to think about burnout in a way that enables you to prevent it – or recover from it.

Extinguish Burnout: Practical Guidance for Prevention and Recovery @ IMDA Meeting

Everyone in healthcare is experiencing increased demands on their time, resources, and energy; this, combined with systems that are not designed to support the expanding daily work, has resulted in increased rates of burnout.  Burnout among healthcare professionals is reaching epidemic proportions, with over 50% of physicians and 30% of nurses reporting signs of burnout.  While the evidence demonstrates that burnout is becoming a norm in healthcare, it is rarely discussed among these professionals.  Too often, burnout is considered a personal problem affecting only the person experiencing burnout; however, in healthcare, burnout also affects the entire healthcare system.

Extinguish Burnout: Prevention and Recovery @ ACS Indiana Chapter - 68th Annual Scientific Meeting and Annual Business Meeting

Burnout is more than a catchphrase used when one is tired of their job or weary from life.  Burnout is a syndrome characterized with exhaustion, cynicism, and a lack of personal efficacy.  As a physician, burnout may affect not only yourself and your peers but the rest of your healthcare team.  This impact then affects patient outcomes and safety as well staff engagement and safety.  Learning to identify the path towards burnout and strategies for recovery will impact your life, those around you, and your patients.  This session will provide the framework of how burnout sneaks up on us and techniques to escape its clutches.

Avoiding Burnout In Continuous Change @ NWI SHRM Meeting

Avoiding Burnout In Continuous Change @ NWI SHRM Meeting

We’re no longer in a world of discrete, incremental changes occurring with decades of rest between them. The pace of change is continuous and overlapping  as one change leads to the next and so on. Often, the result of this constant change is burnout. In this session, we’ll learn what burnout is, what causes it, and what we can do to prevent it. We can’t stop the rate of change that we face today, but we can learn to adapt to it better. The better we can adapt, the less burnout we’ll experience, and the happier we’ll all be.
