Do you have a peer support program at your hospital to retain your experienced healthcare teams especially after high volume periods or traumatic events?
Answer: Our team knows (per the 2005 Jones Report to Congress) that when hospitals lose experienced nurses (for whatever reason), it can cost the hospital between $69,000 and $72,000 which does not include the cost of recruiting and training a replacement. Additionally, you cannot put a price tag on the disruption caused to a cohesive clinical team while they are saying good-bye and waiting for a replacement to be fully up to speed. Our team can assist you with developing and implementing a peer support program for your hospital.
How is your team managing the stress of a global pandemic which is now in its 2nd year?
Answer: Complex traumatic stress can take a toll on any healthcare team in any country. We offer critical incident stress management and debriefing for healthcare teams as well as training in stress management, burnout and compassion fatigue. We can help your team navigate persistent stress while developing the essential tools they need to maintain their life-career balance and relationships.
How have your perspectives and values of healthcare changed throughout your healthcare career?
Answer: We know that the values that are essential for a fulfilling healthcare career can change over time (for whatever reason). The most important thing is to “not settle” and be at a place where you are unhappy or feeling like you’re not doing what you would like to be doing in your career.
