The Joy Factor: Embracing Joy at Work to Improve Patient Safety and Ignite Passion and Productivity

In the current environment, burnout is common among healthcare workers. Burnout prevalence is estimated to range from 10 to 70 percent among nurses, and more than half of American physicians have at least one sign of burnout. Healthcare burnout threatens patient safety by leading to the depersonalization of – and thus, poor interactions with – coworkers and patients. The connection between burnout and patient safety may be driven by both a lack of motivation or energy and impaired cognitive function. These can result in distraction, memory lapses and a lack of attention to detail among workers, making them easily prone to errors and putting patients in risky situations. Clinicians suffering from burnout are more likely to admit to having made mistakes or delivered substandard patient care at work.

Leadership plays a key role in combating burnout among healthcare professionals. Yet, few organizations have the necessary tools and knowledge to create an environment of psychological safety. This workshop will provide both strategies to identify burnout in professional healthcare staff and the resources to improve safety culture.
