Bite Size Coping During Times of Uncertainty – Stressed during uncertain times? If you, your staff or your colleagues are feeling particularly spent, it is probably because the level of emotional exhaustion in health care workers was already at an all-time-high before COVID-19, with one out of three people already meeting the criteria for burnout. In this enlightening and entertaining module, we will provide some perspective, hope, and simple strategies to try during tense times.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss stress mitigation strategies to employ in the tense times of a global pandemic.

August 20 Gloria Goins | Former Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer for Bon Secours Mercy Health System

How Unconscious Bias Harms Patients During the COVID-19 Pandemic … Despite Our Good Intentions The outcomes of unconscious bias can be seen across all industries. But in healthcare, mitigating unconscious bias is of particular importance. Evidence-based impacts of unconscious bias on safety, quality and mortality show that we are unintentionally putting our patients at risk. Cross-cultural competency is a “must have” skill as we define what it means to address, support and manage the ever-changing U.S. population, particularly as the world faces the effects of COVID-19. In this session, you will learn about practical actions that can be taken to reduce the effects of unconscious bias in healthcare operations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss practical actions that can be taken to reduce the effects of unconscious bias in healthcare operations.

September 3 Tom Koulopoulos | Chairman of Global Futures Think Tank The Delphi Group

The New Healthcare Ecosystem – What the COVID-19 crisis has made abundantly clear is that the current healthcare ecosystem is ill-prepared to deal with the type of healthcare needs that will be typical of the 21st Century. With an aging global demographic that will put more than half of the world’s population in the 60+ age group by 2060 the world’s real healthcare crisis has barely begun. The challenge isn’t advances in medicine, the threat of future pandemics, or our ability to develop new pharmaceuticals and therapies, but rather a healthcare ecosystem that pits payer against provider, forces gaming of the system, poorly orchestrated supply chains, and the enormous burden on providers to handle so many of the administrative aspects of healthcare. The best hope for healthcare is to rethink how to refocus every part of the healthcare ecosystem on what it is best at.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how healthcare should rethink how to refocus every part of the healthcare ecosystem.
