Dealing with Conflict in Healthcare During COVID
Carl Clark, MD, President & CEO, Mental Health Center of Denver
Please join us February 24th at 11:30 am MST for a presentation with Carl Clark, MD, President & CEO, Mental Health Center of Denver, as he presents an understanding of the conflict in healthcare that our frontline workers are dealing with during COVID.
Dr. Clark will focus on critical points of conflict that have emerged for frontline healthcare workers since the onset of COVID-19. Some critical points include provider burnout, compassion fatigue impacts of long-term stress and other conflicts such as career changes—leaving healthcare altogether or working in a traveling provider environment outside employment in a healthcare system. He will focus on real-world tools for those healthcare frontline workers with actionable policy solutions.
He will draw on his experience as a psychiatrist and an advocate of positive psychology, to pull apart the differences between healthy conflict and high conflict, one of the most impactful attitudes for positive mental health. He will share with us about how we as healthcare providers, administrators and patients can create a healthier attitude as we journey through this COVID-19 pandemic.
- Factors leading to burnout and compassion fatigue and policy solutions to increase well-being and decreasing employee turnover.
- Implications of prolonged stress in the workplace and what healthcare systems can do about it.
- Healthy conflict vs. high conflict and how to understand the difference while creating systems for resolution.
