Clinician Support: Building a Program, Simulation and Role Play, Lessons Learned and Sustainability
The Westin Boston Waterfront│Thursday, November 13, 2014 │1:00 – 4:30 pm
Program Description: This forum is for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, risk managers, administrators, and those interested in support programs for clinicians and staff suffering the emotional toll following adverse medical events. We will begin with a presentation from one organization, early on in their peer support journey, that is utilizing internal resources strategically and cost effectively. We will follow with a hands on, audience participation session with live role plays and simulations. We will then discuss sustainability and feature a presentation on lessons learned from a longstanding “second victim” support program. Rounding off the program will be a panel discussion regarding important updates to the MITSS Clinician Support Tool Kit for Healthcare. This forum will benefit those just beginning to conceptualize and operationalize a clinician support program to those seeking to sustain their programs in the longer term.
