Virtual Conference

 

 

Join us for a Virtual Physician Burnout Symposium – Leading Edge Strategies to Increase Physician and Nurse Leader Well-Being on January 12, 2021, beginning at 11:00am EST.

 

Physician and Nurse Leader burnout is a public health crisis that demands action across the entire healthcare ecosystem. Burnout not only affects clinicians, but also the patients they serve. At the Physician Burnout Symposium, thought leaders and stakeholders will gather for a few hours a day in January to address the multiple facets of burnout, such as time constraints, technology, and regulations, and gain actionable solutions to implement within the health system.

 

Join Drs. Maples and Pierce as they discuss An Integrated Approach to Thriving – Lessons from the National Taskforce for Humanity in Healthcare.
