In this special 1-day online program on Sunday, August 2 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., Roshi Joan Halifax, PhD; Cynda Rushton, PhD, RN, FAAN; and Anthony Back, MD, share special practices and approaches for clinicians and other health care providers working in the midst of the COVID pandemic.
This day focuses on qualities that we feel are essential to support clinicians in their care of others and themselves, including empathy and compassion; clinical and cultural humility; integrity and respect; honesty and curiosity; the courage to reflect; and an equal emphasis on cure and care. We also address the value of vulnerability and attending to failure and grief. We explore how clinicians and health care providers can sustain their work, their hearts, and their presence in the midst of the unprecedented challenges associated with the pandemic. We address together how health care providers can shift out of burnout, moral distress, and futility even when the pandemic seems likely to continue far into the future. We identify capacities and tools that are essential to sustain one in the midst of the extremes that health care providers face daily as they serve those who are suffering, whether patient, family member, or colleague. We also know that there are no simple answers, but we know that there are effective approaches and practices that can enhance one’s ability to be present for and handle the great complexities in caring for those who are in the midst of extreme suffering. Join Drs. Halifax, Rushton, and Back for an interactive day of explorations and exercises that have never before been offered in this format.
