TELESPECIALIST Learning Center 2021 CME Lunch and Learn- Trauma and Burnout in Medical Professionals and Staff During COVID.

Oct 27, 2021


The COVID pandemic has led to multiple unexpected outcomes for providers and medical staff on the front lines of treatment. In addition to risk and worry over infectious exposures, staff and providers have also had to deal with high census, increased critical care bed usage, the steep learning curve of treatment for a novel illness, and much more.

Studies report epidemic proportions of provider and staff burnout, leading to negative mental health outcomes, turnover, poor morale, and in some instances, a desire to consider jobs outside of the medical profession.

This valuable lecture by TeleSpecialists psychiatrist Dr. Kimberly “Kim” Kjome will:
• identify reasons, signs and symptoms of burnout, compassion fatigue, and trauma
• provide useful insights and coping skills
• help providers and staff identify symptoms in themselves and others
