Healthcare workers dedicate their lives to caring for the health and wellness of others. Between the long hours, the tremendous pressure, and patient safety risks – all magnified by the threat of COVID-19 – these essential care providers are under constant assault.
Healthcare workers experience astronomical levels of burnout, compassion fatigue, and strain on their psychological safety and wellbeing. If these are not addressed, the worker may suffer in silence, change their role, or leave the profession altogether.
Protect them – now and after the global pandemic – to benefit the worker, their patients and the healthcare system.
The Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), a World Health Organization (WHO) Collaborating Center in Patient Safety and Patient Engagement, has over 15 years of experience in safety leadership and implementing programs to enhance safety in every part of the healthcare continuum.
This webinar will reveal lessons learned in the development of peer-to-peer support programs, introduce best practices from around the world, and provide a toolkit to develop your own programmes.
