Event Overview:  This Special Feature Webinar describes the detrimental impacts to health care providers of significant career events such as adverse outcomes of care, litigation, adverse licensure actions, deployment, career transition and COVID-19. Evidence-based interventions and recommendations are provided for colleagues, peers and leadership to support providers through these events, and the scrutiny and stress that often accompany them. The educational content has been developed by an internationally recognized subject matter expert in the fields of peer support and health care provider resiliency. The primary focus of this event is to improve the ability of Military Health System (MHS) providers to support their colleagues in an empathetic and productive manner after a significant career stressor; and to ensure that all MHS health care providers have access to a safe, non-judgmental resource that supports emotional, physical and professional well-being after these events.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize effects of adverse events on clinicians.
  • Demonstrate skills for providing peer support to colleagues.
  • Discuss methods for overcoming barriers (organizational and professional) to peer support.
  • Develop a support structure to assist clinicians when going through rapid change, transitions and uncertainty.

Powerpoints from Last Week’s Specialty Leader Business Meeting

Posted on

Last week was the Specialty Leader Business Meeting, which is always held in conjunction with the GME Selection Board. If you want to see the following Powerpoint decks, they are available on the Medical Corps Sharepoint Site (pick your e-mail CAC certificate or it won’t open for you):

  • DHA Organizational Update
  • Finding Joy in Work
  • GME Interdependency Brief
  • GME Overview
  • Military Unique Curriculum
  • PERS Pearls

I would post them, but the one about DHA is labelled “for internal use only” and there are too many authors of the other ones to get permission to post them on the blog. Because of all the change going on, I wanted to call attention to their availability.
