The Nurse Resiliency Track is designed for current, former, or future nursing professionals and administrators. This track will explore strategies, new ideas, and best practices that support building resilience in nurses and other health care workers to provide a protective factor against negative outcomes related to the job, including burnout, anxiety, and depression, as well as how addressing these can improve patient outcomes and quality of care.
The Behavioral Health & Substance Use Track is designed for professionals who see, treat, or interact with patients with BH or SUD concerns or who are hoping to increase their subject matter knowledge and to improve safety and quality of care. This track will bring you up to speed, and, if you’re already there, give you insight into what’s next on the horizon of BH and SUD patient care through sessions on topics including anti-stigma, safety, and maternal health.
