Burnout remains a critical issue among the health care workforce.
Supportive interventions aimed at increasing connection and
mitigating stress injury have been shown to prevent burnout and
improve resiliency

This ECHO series offers providers and other staff working in health care and public health settings an opportunity to navigate, normalize and validate worries, stressors and experiences related to various health care environments. Participants will develop an awareness of the manifestations of stress along a continuum. With this framework, each session will provide helpful, tangible tools in a psychoeducational, didactic format to increase capacity, mitigate burnout, elevate connectedness and mindfulness, and promote self-efficacy and quality patient care.

The first two sessions are required, as they are foundational to the rest of the series and will introduce language and concepts that will be woven throughout the remaining sessions. Presence is encouraged at all sessions, as this is an interactive series offering a space to connect with other health care workers.  Video modules are posted and available to view at one’s own pace for sessions that are missed. Participants will have access to a Toolkit as well as ongoing weekly Resource Rooms led by a mental health professional to encourage and practice a common language, support and resources.

The Past the Pandemic Toolkit is a self-paced PDF. It was built to accompany this series with additional exercises, worksheets, opportunities for reflection and a rich resource list with active links. It is meant to be a guide to use alongside the video modules, but it can also be shared with others in your teams and organizations to spread knowledge, as it is a self-explanatory resource.

You will be emailed a survey link at the end of this ECHO series. Please be sure to complete this survey, which should take no more than 5-10 minutes.
