About the Summit
Research shows that more than half of all healthcare providers across the country experience symptoms of burnout, depression and anxiety as well as engage in unhealthy lifestyle behaviors. The mental and physical well-being of providers are linked to the quality, safety and cost of patient care.
To address this critical issue, The Ohio State University in partnership with the National Academy of Medicine’s Action Collaborative on Clinician Well-being and Resilience is bringing together some of the nation’s brightest minds, expert practitioners and renowned motivational speakers to Columbus, Ohio, this fall for our third biennial National Summit on Promoting Well-Being and Resilience in Healthcare. We will welcome hundreds of clinicians, leaders, influencers, students and change agents to discuss this issue, share best practices and provide evidence-based strategies and resources to create cultures of wellness that promote resilience and battle burnout in healthcare systems and learner classrooms.
What to Expect
This is not your typical conference. The casual, two-day event features engaging health, wellness and motivational speakers who are renowned experts in the healthcare and wellness fields. We invite you to immerse yourself in this retreat-style conference where self-care is at the forefront. Not only will you experience traditional keynote, plenary, panel and concurrent session presentations, but what makes our conference unique is that we strongly encourage you to come prepared to engage in self-care and, most importantly, have fun.
We encourage you to dress casually in athletic wear. Throughout the event, you will participate in guided stretching and recovery breaks and have the opportunity to start your day with optional fitness classes, including a HITT Bootcamp, Zumba, yoga, and a special walking tour of Columbus.
For healthcare professionals, take this opportunity to disengage from your everyday work-life and rejuvenate. At the end of the event, you will leave feeling refreshed, motivated and equipped with evidence-based resources, information, strategies and action items to incorporate into your daily routines at work and at home. These best practices will help you prevent burnout, build stronger wellness cultures and improve the overall health and well-being of yourself, colleagues and students.
Take advantage of our interdisciplinary networking and continuing education (CE) opportunities in the health science fields including dentistry, medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, social work and veterinary medicine. Not only are we offering a wide range of CE credits, but we strongly encourage you to sign up for a pre-conference workshop to take a deep dive into improving your own self-care expertise, building stronger wellness cultures or learning strategies to make a positive impact for wellness and resilience in your healthcare students lives.
For students, take this opportunity to learn strategies to overcome stressors in your school- and work-life. The information and resources shared will help you more confidently face current and future challenges and will be applicable for a lifetime in the healthcare industry. You will be uniquely equipped to lead and develop a culture of wellness both in the classroom and in your post-grad career. You can also participate in the variety of fun, self-care opportunities discussed above.
This summit will prepare you to enter the workforce with resiliency strategies so that you are equipped for the many work and life challenges you may face. Learn from experts in the healthcare industry and hear from motivational speakers who will provide you with insights and best practices to achieve your optimal health and well-being.
Finally, take advantage of many interdisciplinary networking opportunities. There will be health professionals in attendance from across the country who can share their experiences and give meaningful advice no matter where you are in your educational or professional journey.
This summit has something for all health professionals and students. We encourage you to come with an open mind ready to absorb this vital information while feeling refreshed and ready to return to your daily life stronger and more equipped than ever before!
