Resilience and Readiness

Description

The commitment to well-being and resilience of pharmacists and pharmacy personnel continues to be a top priority and is particularly important as a component of readiness. During a time of change, such as the DHA transition, evolving definitions about roles and responsibilities contribute to stress and highlight the need for staff to seek out and use resilience tools.This session will discuss important topics, such as what is burnout, how burnout affects pharmacists and their patients, how to reduce burnout and improve resilience, and how clinicians can assess their state of mind and determine when to seek help.
