Events for Health-Care Professionals
The team at BC-CPC has gathered links to education events designed for Health Care Providers caring for people affected by life-limiting illness. The events are not created or endorsed by BC-CPC unless stated in the description.
The COVID-19 pandemic is taking a stunning toll on the emotional well-being of health care workers. Many of us are looking for proven strategies to mitigate the natural stress, empathy strain, and moral distress that we are experiencing.
Peer-facilitated well-being debriefings are an evidence-based way to provide support to health care workers; they increase social support, decrease feelings of isolation, and provide opportunities to learn from each other about coping with difficult issues. The result: positive impact on well-being, personal resiliency, improved patient care, and reduced feelings of burnout.
In this two-part webinar series, Vickie Leff, LCSW, will train attendees to be peer facilitators for well-being debriefings, providing the skills needed to bring this technique to their organizations. In part one, attendees learned the benefit of peer-facilitated well-being debriefings; the format of these conversations; how to secure buy-in from leadership; and more. In part two, Vickie will review the techniques previously learned, and then provide attendees with an opportunity to hone their newly-acquired skills.
