HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series: MSSNY – Physician Wellness and Peer-to-Peer Program
March 17, 2021
3 - 4 p.m.
Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non Members
Stress and burnout among physicians has been well documented for years. The COVID-19 pandemic is exacerbating the public health problem of physician burnout in New York state. Throughout the pandemic, physicians and other health professionals have faced concerns about safety, overworking and feelings of loss.
Without an intervention, it is possible that a high number of physicians over the next few years may develop chronic stress reactions, anger, clinical depression, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicidality.
Objectives: At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
- understand why physician wellness is important for the healthcare organization;
- recognize and promote the concept that it’s okay to not be okay; and
- gain tools and resources to encourage physician resiliency and wellness.

HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series
This webinar is part of the HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series held on a Wednesday at 3 p.m. Additional sessions will take place as needed on Mondays at the same time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced healthcare organizations and providers to navigate unprecedented operational and clinical challenges. In both surge and recovery phases, healthcare organizations and providers need to re-evaluate their operations and plans for delivering care in a post-pandemic world. As they plan for the “new normal” while battling the second surge of COVID-19, healthcare leaders must consider their use of telemedicine, infection prevention and control practices, supply chain management and infrastructure changes. To assist with planning, the sessions will feature national and state experts to explore strategies and considerations for the critical phases of the pandemic.
Additional sessions are listed below— access recordings of past sessions and register for upcoming sessions online.
- March 24: COVID-19: Bacterial and fungal co-infections; Update for clinicians, antimicrobial stewards and infection
