Wellness: An Ethical Responsibility for Mental Health Care Providers

This virtual learning class is being offered remotely at the listed day/time. Details, including instructions for accessing an online learning platform via the internet or dial-in option, will be provided to registrants. Participants earn 6 hours of ethics/boundaries continuing education. Even prior to the COVID pandemic, healthcare providers faced an inordinate amount of stress as evidenced by the alarming prevalence of burnout symptoms for both trainees and practicing providers. This stress is amplified for providers who are part of groups that have been underrepresented and discriminated against in medicine. Affecting both personal and professional domains, burnout may be associated with a decrease in professionalism, a greater number of mistakes, substance use and mood disorders. In this workshop, we will review empirical research on burnout and wellness with an emphasis on practical applications of this work. Two case studies of service implementation for wellness support in large academic health systems will be discussed. Participants will also engage in hands-on learning activities identifying how provider burnout impacts them individually and how burnout impacts and is impacted by the systems in which they work. Participants will have opportunities to identify their burnout symptoms and to set goals to enhance their wellbeing and improve their day-to-day delivery of mental health care services. Opportunities to discuss systems-level interventions with colleagues will be provided as well as opportunities to try out a variety of wellness interventions such as mindfulness and gentle yoga. Options to participate in wellness activities, including gentle yoga and mindfulness exercises, will be provided. Cameras do not have to be on during these activities and participants may choose self-guided wellness activities.
