EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

​After attending the conference, the target audience should be able to:

​• Recognize signs/ symptoms of burnout in physicians.
• Develop keener insight into its impact on health care and patient outcomes.
• Recognize pitfalls and manage self-worth.
• Develop / strengthen resilience and diminish the impact of burnout, hence,  promoting physician      well-being.
• Be able to self-assess for strengths and improvement opportunities.

EARN CME HOURS

The organization of the CME and structure therein allows a flow that will provide the attendees opportunities to gain skills and elasticity in transitioning back and forth between professional and personal realms of skill implementation, gaining more than work/ life balance; working toward the goal of work/ life integration:

• Didactic lectures to identify burnout: incidence, symptoms, causes, mitigation,  and management.
• Skill building for professional short-cuts and proficiencies to help avoid burnout.
• Breakout session  experiences that identify personal skill building  techniques to facilitate     

  resiliency, implement coping mechanisms, and decrease stress.
