This keynote will honor the professionalism and dedication of your caregivers AND provide strategies to restore commitment to the field, rejuvenate spirits and to mine the Pandemic experience in an intentional way to fuel Post Traumatic Growth so that all can emerge evolved rather than traumatized from the experiences of the past year.
As the Pandemic rages on, so many healthcare professionals are now focused on how to “get through” the current surges with the hope of someday getting back to business as usual. What if the work at hand immediately following the world health crisis was not just about getting back to normal but about greatness and how to ensure that our valuable staff members and teams come through this crisis better for it, evolved by it, and changed from it. In order to garner the transformation that can come from profound challenges, the impact of the experiences need to be acknowledged, the heroic contributions recognized and the ordeal mined for learning and transformation.
This session will outline the role of the nurse and their leaders in restoring and refocusing talent in ways that will impact healthcare far into the future. By capturing hearts and minds, together we can make sense of the common experience in ways that will keep teams and individuals focused on the work at hand, all the while ensuring that the forces that will evolve team and team members is not curtailed but instead used for positive change.
