Perinatal Leadership Forum
Trending Now in AWHONN (Full day)
Trending Now in Women’s Health, Obstetrics, and Neonatal Nursing
What is a trend? A trend is basically a current movement in a specific direction. Trends that deserve thoughtful consideration for improvements in women’s health, obstetric, and neonatal nursing practice are those fueled by evidence. Evidence gained from appropriately designed research studies, clinician expertise, and patient preferences and values should fully support nursing care provided to women’s health, obstetric, and neonatal patients. Presenters in this preconference will impart information about trends that are supported by evidence and provide interactive exercises to facilitate determination of what may be useful to provide the highest quality care for women’s health, obstetric, and neonatal patients in individual healthcare institutions.
From Fear, Anxiety, and Burnout to Confidence, Control, and Resilience: Practical Solutions for Healthcare Leaders Post Pandemic (Half day, PM)
Renee Thompson, DNP, RN, CSP, CEO & Founder, Healthy Workforce Institute
Never before have healthcare professionals been under a spotlight. The entire world is counting on nurses, physicians, and support staff to save the human race from the COVID-19 virus. Doing so effectively requires extraordinary leadership.
Every day throughout the pandemic leaders have to put their own fears, anxieties, and insecurities aside and put their game-face on when they cross the threshold of their workspace. Stepping every day to fight the battle AND address the negativity cloud that surrounds the “war zone” can feel like a heavy burden for leaders. This burden, carried day after day, can destroy a leader’s confidence, increase burnout, and damage teams.
In this preconference, leaders will learn practical strategies to become confident, equipped, and resilient to continue leading their teams.
