On January 28, 2016, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “Provider Vitality Workshop: Strategies for Ensuring an Energized and Effective Healthcare Workforce.”
A strong and effective healthcare system depends on sustaining the vitality and well-being of the provider workforce. That’s not easy, especially among providers working in communities where social determinants weigh heavily on patient health and where the pent-up medical needs of the underserved can overwhelm even the most dedicated healthcare worker. Add to the mix growing state and federal quality reporting requirements, and it’s no wonder healthcare practitioners are at the breaking point.
During this webinar and interactive workshop, HMA Principal Jeffrey Ring, PhD, talks about the dangers of provider burnout. More importantly, he outlines a series of concrete steps healthcare organizations can take to ensure providers remain energized, find meaning in their work, and continue to provide the highest quality care to their patients. Listen to the replay and:
- Learn how to identify a provider vitality problem at your organization, including signs of growing provider stress, frustration, and burnout.
- Understand the various drivers of vitality problems, including understaffing, a challenging patient population, a hostile or unsupportive work environment, poorly defined organizational goals, inefficient team or management structures, and inadequate systems and protocols.
- Identify which provider vitality problems can be addressed through training, workshops and strategies to help providers find meaning in their work versus drivers that require broader organizational restructuring.
- Learn how to create a supportive work environment that fosters collaborative problem-solving, helps providers balance work and life, and empowers providers to take charge of their own success and well-being.
