Webinar — Clinician Burnout or Wellness: Care Team Well-being and the Health of the Nation

Feb 6, 2020

On Thursday, February 6th, the Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative hosted a free webinar, “Clinician Burnout or Wellness: Care Team Well-being and the Health of the Nation.”

In 2019, almost half of physicians reported experiencing burnout, and data suggests that other healthcare professionals experience similarly high levels. The costs of burnout to provider well-being, patient care, and the healthcare system are much too great to ignore, and there are emerging, promising practices to review and consider for implementation.

Dr. Audrey Stillerman from UIC’s Office of Community Engagement and Lara Altman of the Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative were featured in the first webinar in the Collaborative’s new series on burnout and wellness as trauma-informed practice. The presentation included an overview of the history and current definitions surrounding clinician burnout, as well as an introduction to multi-level strategies for prevention and intervention. This webinar was relevant for all those in the healthcare field, both clinical staff and administrators.

Lara Altman, MPH, MSW is the Director of the Illinois ACEs Response Collaborative at Health & Medicine Policy Research Group. In this role, she leads the Collaborative’s policy, capacity building, and research dissemination work focused on reducing childhood adversity and promoting healing and thriving. Her background is in program implementation, coalition building, and research in public health, especially in maternal and child health.
