As nurses, we have spent 2 years traversing tremendous uncertainty, working in harsh and tragic patient care environments, while trying our best to heal and advocate for our patients. The odds have not been far from stacked in our favor. We face a range of emotions and feelings, because our moral compass has been challenged more than ever. Plus, record numbers of nurses are leaving the bedside.
This session focuses on “burnout” in a new way. We'll explore the concept of Moral Injury, which shifts focus from individuals to broken institutional healthcare systems. This program will also discuss the most effective mental health support for nurses at this moment.
Driving change in this space is paramount. We must prioritize the changes we need. As we prioritize, we want to connect to mental health supports and develop strategies and actions to drive system changes from our employers, government, and within our union.
Register to join us to learn together, plan together, and drive change.
