Theresa DeLau, Pleasant View, Shiawassee Medical Care Facility

A dynamic Nurse Leader recognizes that overall success is measured by the success of your team, the quality of work the team generates and how well you lead them to achieve these successes while providing work/life balance for all. Additionally, stress, anxiety, fatigue and burnout in healthcare cause severe negative effects on the "whole person " of the healthcare worker. Nurses are especially at risk for these symptoms, due to the pressures and unique challenges of our work - we prioritize the patient first in our nurse-patient relationship and we rarely take time to evaluate or provide for our own needs. 

This session will address strategies and approaches that the participants can use to achieve work/life balance (and avoid burnout) for themselves and their teams while keeping excellent outcomes the priority. It doesn't have to be one or the other!

Nurse Learner Outcomes:

  • At the conclusion of this activity, participants will self-report a knowledge gain of strategies they can use to achieve work-life balance for themselves and their leadership team on the post-event evaluation.
  • At the conclusion of this learning activity participants will self-report increased self- awareness and knowledge gained in understanding the importance of reducing workplace stress, anxiety, fatigue and burnout on the post-event evaluation.

Pain Management
Linda Vanni, Professional Pain Education & Consulting, LLC

There have been many changes in pain management due to the pandemic. The opioid epidemic continues to worsen and certain precautions need to be followed for safe administration of pain medications.
