Thriving Versus Surviving: Building Resilience in Turbulent Times [Free CE Lecture]

Stressed during uncertain times? If you, your staff or your colleagues are feeling particularly spent, it is probably because the level of emotional exhaustion in healthcare workers was already at an all-time-high before COVID-19, with one out of three people already meeting the criteria for burnout. In this enlightening and entertaining module, we will provide some perspective, hope, and simple strategies to try during tense times. 

Join the UCF College of Nursing virtually on Oct. 27 from 2-4 p.m. for its 10th annual Orlando Health Nursing Lecture during the Year of the Nurse featuring guest speaker Bryan Sexton, Ph.D., director of Duke Center for Healthcare Safety and Quality and associate professor of psychiatry at Duke University School of Medicine.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. To succinctly identify and explain how increases in stress at the societal and nursing unit levels impact care quality and self-care in general. Measure unit level norms that enhance vs. hinder work-life balance.
  2. To recognize the factors that contribute to burnout, understand the psychology behind how it develops, and the theory behind evidence-based approaches to reduce it.
  3. To practice the evidence-based skills, strategies, and positive psychology tools provided in resilience webinars.

Attendees who are nurses can earn 2.0 contact hours. 

Advanced registration is required to participate via Zoom Webinar.
