Physician Stress: From Burnout to Resiliency
8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

Location: Live Webinar, Presented at your Facility

There is no fee for this event.

As we roll out our peer support strategies and training, we can’t lose sight of the crisis in the medical profession. Stress, burn-out, and emotional withdrawal take a toll on our physician partners, and the result can be disengagement, retirement, substance use, and suicide. This webinar will cover the current science about physician stress and burnout and talk about coping strategies that can be implemented in an organization to support our physician colleagues. The webinar is funded by HRET HIIN and is part of our Safer Hospitals Initiative.

This webinar is presented by Stanton Smullens M.D., and SaraKay Smullens MSW. Dr. Smullens received his undergraduate education at Harvard College, earned his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College and was Chief Medical Officer of the Jefferson Health System from 1997 to 2014. In 2002 Dr. Smullens was appointed to the eleven-person Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority (PSA) Board as part of the Mcare Law (Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error Act). In June 2018, Dr. Smullens was appointed Chair of the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority.

SaraKay Smullens, MSW, LCSW, CGP, CFLE, BCD is a certified group psychotherapist and family life educator. She is devoted to highlighting destructive societal forces through communication, advocacy and activism. In her work she illuminates the impact of abuse, not only on individuals, but on the attitudes and behaviors that destroy marriages, families, friendships, work settings, communities and societies.
