Learning Objectives:

  • Define self-leadership and the critical role it plays in healthcare today
  • Understand how self-leadership benefits the caregiver, patient, and organization
  • Identify self-leadership tools
  • Participate in a follow-up Resilience Challenge

Building Resilience with Compassion

Compassion is a critical resilience skill, helping healthcare providers manage stress by changing daily routines, perspectives, and expectations. Studies show compassion is an antidote to burnout, improves patient outcomes, and drives hospital revenues. Self-compassion has been shown to protect caregivers from compassion fatigue and increase satisfaction in one’s caregiving role.

Learning Objectives

  • Define resilience and the critical role it plays in healthcare providers today
  • Understand how compassion benefits the care provider, patient, and organization
  • Differentiate compassion, empathy, and sympathy as it relates to healthcare providers
  • Participate in a follow-up Resilience Challenge

Diane was a BIG HIT as the keynote speaker at our Annual Case Management Conference! Numerous attendees personally relayed to me they felt Diane was speaking directly to them because she helped identify the need for change and provided the tools to take that first step.

  • Define resilience and its application to physicians
