VITAL WorkLife is Speaking at the Advancing Care Conference on:
Processing the Trauma of the Pandemic and Finding Opportunities for Post-traumatic Growth
The COVID-19 pandemic has been traumatic for many healthcare clinicians. It is critical for healthcare and frontline leaders to conceptualize the pandemic as a traumatic event and recognize their critical role in managing the aftermath. In this session, attendees will gain a better understanding of the traumatic nature of the pandemic, the impact of trauma on individuals and organizations, how to foster post-traumatic growth coming out of the pandemic and build trust with your clinicians. We will share how one leading healthcare organization is addressing these issues and best practices and insights gained from our work with 40+ other healthcare systems across the country.
