4-hour CEU courses are being offered by Albany State University and the Darton Health Professions Foundation, and will not only address continued educational units for 2022 but also important topics impacting the health professions field.
All too often, healthcare professionals give everything they have to the institution they are employed by and those they care for. They sacrifice sleep, weekends, holidays, family functions, and more importantly their physical and mental health. Professionals on the frontlines of the Covid 19 pandemic put their lives at risk and faced insurmountable stress for months. Healthcare workers were faced with staffing shortages and a daily barrage of new patients, often leading to diet and exercise neglect and more importantly emotional burnout.
It is difficult to find compassion and empathy for yourself and those you love when you have given it all away. Self-care for Healthcare Workers is designed to help combat burnout before it’s too late and give you tools for emotional well-being. However, it begins with you recognizing the importance of caring for you first.
Finding your way back to being the best you and helping others, begins with helping yourself. It is a process of triaging your mental and emotional health on a regular basis, recognizing what you need before it is too late, and developing healthy coping mechanisms. However, it is also important to know when to seek help and finding the right resources.
This four hour CEU is designed to address a variety of healthcare professions and consider best practices to:
- Triage your mental health and well-being
- Recognize what you need before it’s too late
