Learn about designing, implementing, and monitoring a successful Care for the Colleague program! Presented by Kit Hoffman with first-hand experience of setting up such a program at Confluence Health, this webinar offers listeners a chance to learn about designing automatic, non-punitive support that reduces psychological, physical, and professional distress for healthcare professionals and equips them to deliver safe, compassionate care. Kit will share the unique approach they’ve brought to this effort in designing Confluence’s BESIDE program, incorporating a mental health professional into the process, and go over research identifying key elements of Care for the Colleague programs with practical steps for implementation and evaluation. Finally, you will learn brief skills to help you respond to a healthcare professional who has had an adverse or stressful patient event. This webinar is appropriate for front-line clinicians, patient safety and quality professionals, mental health professionals, healthcare leadership, and anyone else interested in learning about implementing care for the colleague in the workplace. This webinar is eligible for 1.2 CNE credit hours. *NOTE: This webinar will be held via Zoom. The link to the Zoom URL will be sent to all registered attendees prior to the event.*
