Register yourself and your colleagues for this informative and free webinar on the connection between physician engagement and health and well-being, co-hosted by the Canadian Society of Physician Leaders. This is a challenging time for leaders in health care. Along with many other critical challenges, leaders are dealing with an exhausted and disillusioned work force. We will look at burnout among physicians – the scope of the problem, what it is, and why we should care. The relationship between physician health and physician engagement will be clarified. We will identify what leaders can do to address burnout and enhance physician engagement. Several frameworks for physician engagement, along with practical strategies and tips, will be offered.
