Staying Afloat: Keeping Up with the Growing Demands within the Healthcare Setting

The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused increased demands and stress within our health care system. As Health Care Professionals (HPCs) retire or find careers in different fields due to the high demands in practice, HPCs are needed more than ever before at the bedside. This course is designed to provide the confidence and tools required to make evidence-informed decisions on how to recognize and respond to vulnerable patient populations while keeping up with the high demands in the healthcare setting.

Course Learning Outcomes

  • Recognize the impact of the pandemic on health care professionals and patient outcomes.
  • Provide confidence and support to PSWs, RPNs and RNs who are providing direct patient care within the clinical setting.
  • Improve communication strategies during complex patient and family circumstances that health care professionals come across.
  • Recognize burnout and compassion fatigue within the workplace, and strategies for self-care.
  • Discuss future implications of an evolving healthcare system and changes to clinical practice.
