Tuesday, October 27, 2020 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Join the UCF College of Nursing for its 10th annual Orlando Health Nursing Lecture during the Year of the Nurse.

Thriving Versus Surviving: Building Resilience in Turbulent Times

Stressed during uncertain times? If you, your staff or your colleagues are feeling particularly spent, it is probably because the level of emotional exhaustion in healthcare workers was already at an all-time-high before COVID-19, with one out of three people already meeting the criteria for burnout. In this enlightening and entertaining module, we will provide some perspective, hope, and simple strategies to try during tense times. 

Guest Speaker

Bryan Sexton, Ph.D.
Director, Duke Center for Healthcare Safety and Quality 
Associate Professor, Psychiatry, Duke University School of Medicine
