Join us for eight monthly seminars co-sponsored by the URSMD Office for Faculty Development and
URMC Medical Faculty and Clinician Wellness Program.
Stress is increasing rapidly in all forms of work in society. Burnout in clinicians has increased nearly 9% in 3 years. A recent URMC survey indicated that burnout increases with an increase of clinical FTE. Human adaptation to these changes is now outpaced by the rapid change of technological platforms. Achieving joy in clinical practice is more critical in improving the healthcare system than was previously thought. Although the most sustaining factor that keeps clinicians going is the care of their patients, gaps exist in specific leadership skills and the level of resources needed to help clinicians meet the challenges and expectations of a rapidly changing healthcare environment. Being aware of and learning how to mitigate these external and internal stressors is now a high priority, due to known effects on individual clinicians, sustainability of practice, retention, patient quality of care and costs, and the patient experience.
This program is designed for healthcare leaders and Department/Division Wellness Representatives.
By the end of this program, the learner will be able to:
1. Apply examples of physical neurocognitive and organizational ergonomics in leadership
2. Reduce three organizational factors at the “blunt end” of patient care that can contribute downstream to active errors at the clinician and patient interface (“sharp end” of patient care).
3. Begin to implement organizational interventions in their department, division, or unit to improve joy in the delivery of healthcare, establish more autonomy promoting environments, and apply methods of participatory management.
