Encore Presentation of New Webinar

This webinar is the first of a series of webinars.

Even before the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, burnout was a growing concern in the workplace, costing healthcare over 125 billion dollars annually. In 2023, statistics show that 50% of all healthcare providers are experiencing some sort of burnout, which has a direct effect on patient and client outcomes, and the overall health of our communities.

To address burnout and mitigate its potential
damaging effects, this webinar will discuss the components of burnout and how it manifests in ourselves and in the workplace. We will also differentiate other factors affecting the ability to do our jobs to the best of our potential. Once we understand the core issues of what burnout is, and what it isn’t, we can move forward to make the changes necessary to not only survive, but to thrive in the workplace.

Target Audience: Occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, occupational therapy students

OTA Course Participant for Understanding  Burnout for the 21st Century OT Practitioner

" As a healthcare professional, I don't always take time or remember the importance of my own well-being. This course did just that - the information presented was relevant and practical, and it provided strategies that are easily implemented. I would definitely recommend this course to another OT, almost like "paying it forward" given that burnout is now the biggest occupational "

OT Course Participant for Understanding Burnout for the 21st Century OT Practitioner

"The presenter, Lynn, was so personable and her passion for the topic was evident. Her list of "quick hacks" and "change makers" is super helpful because it doesn't appear unrealistic, unattainable, or overwhelming to implement. Thank you for a great experience attending my first Aspire OT webinar/course. Your time and knowledge are appreciated."
