Upcoming Event: Resiliency Training for Healthcare Professionals on the front-lines of COVID-19.

Greetings everyone, I hope you are safe and healthy wherever you are in the world as you read this.

This Thursday, 14 May 2020, I will be giving resiliency training for healthcare workers who are on the front lines battling COVID-19 (via Zoom).

The number of ways that COVID has effected our lives is too many to list, but it is certain that our healthcare workers are doing a Herculean task. Long-hours in a high-stress and high-stakes environment can quickly lead to exhaustion, sickness, burn-out, depression and worse.

Working with Kansas City Southwest Clinical Society (KCSWCS) I designed this training to give healthcare workers the tools they need to weather this storm. Here’s the info:

Title:    Auf Geht’s “Resilient Victory amidst the COVID-19 Healthcare Battlefield “

Learning Objectives:

1.   Healthcare providers immediately discover valuable resiliency skills they can put to immediate use in the stressful COVID-19 workplace.

2.   Healthcare providers develop skills to master the tactical art of calm and gratitude within the COVID-19 workplace.

The training will be offered twice on May 14th, once at 1200 and again at 1700 (Central Standard Time), both via Zoom. To register, email Ruth Smerchek directly (Ruth@kcswcs.org).

KCSWCS gives Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit for the American Medical Association (AMA), the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. To register to get CME credit, email Ruth Smerchek directly (Ruth@kcswcs.org).

The KCSWCS has been helping medical professional since 1923, and is one of the oldest postgraduate medical education organizations west of the Mississippi (possibly the oldest).  They are completely independent with no affiliation with any area medical schools or hospitals, and their activities are devoted entirely to continuing medical education (CME). It’s an honor to work with them on an ongoing basis.

If you or someone you know can benefit from this training, do not hesitate to reach out to Ruth. Please share widely.

See you there,
