INS and AVA are coming together to address an issue of profound importance to the infusion and vascular access communities. Healthcare workers are facing significant challenges in their professional and personal lives, due to COVID-19. These challenges may result in ongoing stress and evoke feelings of anxiety, sadness, hopelessness, guilt, and anger. This is matter of significance and urgency for clinicians. We are partnering with AVA to create awareness and promote dialogue about this issue within our community. We are offering this webinar at no cost to non-members and we encourage everyone to share in this opportunity.
Join INS and AVA Directors of Clinical Education, Marlene Steinheiser and Judy Thompson, as they share experiences, include audience interaction, and use case studies to illustrate specific, practical interventions to minimize stress. They will also discuss the science that underpins current stressors.
Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this webinar, the clinician will be able to:
o Describe compassion fatigue, burnout, secondary traumatic stress, second victim and moral distress
o Recognize common challenges and stressors related to the pandemic
o Identify and implement at least one practical intervention to help reduce stress
o List several resources from nationally recognized professional organizations
