General Session
Thriving vs. Surviving During Times of Change: Enhancing Caregiver Resiliency

Stressed? Anticipating even more work demands on your attention, time and energy? We have learned that the need to improve quality and organizational performance is quite different from being ready to improve. If you, your staff or your colleagues are feeling particularly spent, it is probably because the level of emotional exhaustion in health care workers is at an all-time high, with one out of three people already meeting the criteria for burnout syndrome. Against the backdrop of health care reform and economic uncertainty, our resilience is even further compromised. In this session, J. Bryan Sexton, PhD, will review the prevalence and severity of burnout, describe fatigue management and provide tools, tactics and research on how to enhance resilience. Sexton is an associate professor of psychiatry at Duke University School of Medicine and the director of the Patient Safety Center at Duke University Health System.
