    MCACHE’s and GLACHE’s sponsorship of this program allows us to offer you this over $1,600 seminar for the reduced registration fee of $765* – The same highly acclaimed program offered at the ACHE Cluster Events!

    Approximately one out of every three physicians is experiencing professional burnout at any given time. Equally troubling, burnout exists among all healthcare professionals and is on the rise. With staff burnout linked to multiple problems in healthcare organizations—lower care quality, lower patient satisfaction, higher medical error rate, high turnover rate, and, sadly, suicide among healthcare workers—the stakes are high for leaders to make staff wellness a priority. Yet, most healthcare leaders frequently fail to acknowledge and address this serious issue. Even when leaders recognize this as a problem, they are often presented with confusing information or get-better-quick solutions that bring no lasting change and can sometimes increase cynicism among employees. During this two-day seminar, participants will learn how to recognize burnout and will explore a simple and practical framework to improve overall staff wellness.

    While presenting and demonstrating the framework, expert faculty will show how healthcare leaders can work collaboratively with clinicians and non-clinicians alike to resolve personal and organizational burnout dynamics. Participants will leave the course with an actionable plan to reverse—or better yet, prevent—burnout in their own organizations and ideas for improving overall wellness strategies.

    Attendees will learn to:

    • Understand the difference between burnout and stress, the three main symptoms of burnout, and how to recognize it in oneself and others.
    • Develop a plan to reverse and prevent burnout including creating a performance engagement system within the organization.
    • Discover how to target burnout and lead the way for others in your organization to address this critical issue as part of a wellness and performance objective.
