Description: The issue of burnout is prevalent in medicine and neurology, with personal, professional, and organizational implications. We all have the potential to be leaders of change in our work units and organizations to promote wellness and resilience. Those efforts can fuel policy changes at a state and national level. In this four-hour, interactive course, faculty will share the current knowledge and creative approaches to addressing factors contributing to burnout in the work unit and organization, as well as the economic argument for institutions to address burnout. Small group sessions will allow participants to use this information to formulate their own plan for promoting resilience and how to advocate for this. A panel of current leaders who have addressed these issues in their own practice/organization will share their interventions including successes and roadblocks. The goal is to empower neurologists to become leaders in their communities to increase personal engagement within one's organization, practice, or institution.
Completion Message: Participants will be able to use the information about the prevalence and impact of burnout to fuel changes within the work unit and organizational structure to increase engagement and resilience for not only the participants but other team members; discuss challenges in promoting resiliency at one's local organization, clinic, or institution; and identify strategies to promote resiliency and professionalism in the culture of one's local organization, clinic, or institution.
