Healthcare provision is increasingly complex, coupled with ongoing resource constraints and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result clinicians are experiencing escalating levels of burnout with the well-recognised negative impacts on patient care as well as on the individual. It is our aim that this session is informative and thought-provoking combining presentations from eminent speakers in the field with practical and interactive sessions to enable an understanding of the facts around stress and burnout in healthcare professionals along with more practical approaches.
- The background to stress and burnout enabling recognition of one's own stressors and coping mechanisms.
- The impact of the COVID19 pandemic on the wellbeing of healthcare professionals.
- Practical approaches to preventing and managing stress and burnout including the role of the Schwartz round and the RCR.
Please note that the Schwartz round element of this session will NOT be recorded and can only be viewed live.
