Click here to access the recording and related materials.

Sponsored jointly by the Wisconsin Medical Society and the Wisconsin Hospital Association, the complimentary webinars will continue the second Tuesday of each month throughout 2019. Participants receive practical and easy-to-implement tools for dealing with burnout in health care and can earn one hour of continuing education credit up to one month after the live program. The programs may be viewed individually or in a group setting.

The next webinar, Relationship Resilience: The Science of How Other People Matter on March 11, will describe how cultivating meaningful relationships is a health behavior and how loneliness puts us at risk for lower satisfaction at work and in life, poorer immune system functioning, and even reduced longevity. Importantly, it’s the quality, not quantity, of our relationships that appears to matter most.

To date, more than 620 participants have registered for the series, which was developed by Dr. Sexton, associate professor and director, Duke Patient Safety Center, Duke University Health System.
