Health Care Community of Interest (COI) Pre-Conference Session


Transforming the Epidemic of Burnout in Health Care: Awakening the Innate Resilience of Healers

October 27, 2016—9am -5pm PDT

Five Continuing Nursing Education contact hours can be earned.
Registration for CNE’s is $20.00

Keith Blevens, PhD and Joseph Bailey, M.A, L.P. will discuss the implications for presenting this understanding as a single paradigm for health care. The Three Principles Paradigm focuses on the root of the problem of stress and burnout — thought in the moment — as the actual cause. Awakening to the truth of how our psychological reality is actually created alleviates the epidemic of burnout. Early results will be presented from a scientific study of a program in a large hospital system. They will review this project, how initial stages of it were accomplished, and the resulting 12% overall reduction in burnout hospital wide.

The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to insightfully understand the psychology of thought related to resiliency and its impact on health care.

On completion of this course, the learner will be able to:
1. Explain the results of a two year pilot program on stress and burnout prevention at Mayo Clinic Arizona for physicians, nurses and administrators.

2. To present the theoretical foundation of the Three Principles Paradigm as taught in our seminars and coaching.

3. Describe the process of system change and bringing the three principles into a health care organization.
