Program Description: Professional caregiving is already a challenging task. Healthcare has been facing
particularly difficult times with financial and regulatory uncertainty in recent years. In 2020, we've encountered a new opportunity to deepen our
emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and resilience that will allow us to not only survive but actually thrive through these, and other, circumstances.
This presentation reviews the literature related to the moral distress, moral injury, and various forms of trauma professional caregivers are facing
in our current reality and practical solutions for building greater resilience and post-traumatic growth in ourselves, our teams, and those whom we seek to serve.
Program Learning Outcome: Participants will actively engage in the learning activity and indicate an intent to change or
enhance their practice by analyzing practical solutions and strategies from the fields of resilience, emotional intelligence, and post-traumatic growth and developing
a personalized plan of care to tend to your needs as well as the needs of your team and those you serve.
