Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

Healthcare workers have survived a once-in-a-hundred year global calamity, and it is time for the profession of nursing to rethink burnout. In this presentation, we explore burnout through the lens of survival - relating it to other forms of distress and identifying strategies to revive our profession. Insights for recognizing when we are in trouble and understanding the neurophysiological and neuropsychological consequences of unrelenting stress and the physiological approach to how our minds compartmentalize trauma are discussed.


  • Understand the cause and associated concepts of nursing burnout.
  • Relate the phenomena of burnout to other forms of distress.
  • Identify protective strategies to reduce distress.
