August 18, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Alan H. Rosenstein, MD, MBA, Practicing Internist and Consultant in Physician Behavioral Management, San Francisco, CA

presented by Alan H. Rosenstein, MD, MBA

Physicians are trained to provide best patient care. It takes years of dedicated time, effort and commitment, and the reward is the joy of practicing good medical care. But the changing nature and complexity of today’s health care environment is increasing physician levels of frustration, anger, cynicism, and more, leading to high levels of stress and burnout that has negatively impacted physician attitudes and behaviors toward patient care. We must recognize the seriousness of this issue and provide the necessary support and assistance to help physicians thrive and succeed in medical practice.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Gain a better understanding of the timing, incidence, causes, and impact of stress and burnout on health care practitioners;
  • Discuss the negative impact of stress and burnout on attitudes and behaviors that can adversely affect care relationships, satisfaction, patient safety, and quality of care;
  • Learn how to develop effective strategies to address stress and burnout and implement programs designed to enhance professional behaviors, staff satisfaction, and well- being;
  • Discuss the importance of collaborative strategies for early intervention geared to help health care professionals attain a healthier more satisfying personal and professional life.
