As health center teams grapple with ongoing and overlapping stressors contributing to burnout at the individual level, leaders must provide the structural support to build resilient teams and take a top-down approach to stress management, relieving the burden of action on individual staff to engage in self-care. This webinar, brought to you by the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) STAR² Center, led by expert trainers April Lewis and Matt Bennett, explores the role health center leadership plays in building their teams and supporting stress management to increase workforce resiliency.
Studies show that in an integrated, team-based environment, just one burned-out staff member can disrupt team dynamics. But even in times of high stress, health center staff are more likely to be engaged and satisfied with their jobs if given the tools they need to succeed, in an organization that fosters resiliency. Join the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved’s (ACU) STAR² Center for this hour-long webinar designed to highlight the role of health center leadership in fostering an organizational culture of resilience and providing concrete tips to spur this culture change, combat stress, and reduce burnout among their staff—ultimately building stronger teams.
This webinar was produced on February 24, 2022, by the STAR² Center team and Katherine Brieger from Sun River Health. It features a discussion of the ACE-15 Survey, a tool for assessing the critical qualities that make clinical teams effective. During this webinar viewers will learn how to get the most out of this short, but useful survey, how to analyze the results, and what exactly they can do with that information to make their health center’s teams stronger and more cohesive.
Knowledge is the best defense against burnout, vicarious trauma, and compassion fatigue. This webinar, brought to you by the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved (ACU) STAR² Center, is led by expert trainer on trauma-informed care, Matt Bennett, and goes further than other self-care trainings by addressing the critical elements of health to enhance productivity and quality of work on both an individual and organizational level.
