Exploring And Explaining The Workplace Violence And Burnout Epidemics is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Feb 20, 2020 at Red Lion Hotel Eureka, Eureka, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of CE credit (6 CEHs). Description: Workplace violence is a growing epidemic in hospitals and other health care settings. Nurses and other health care workers encounter 5 to 12 times more workplace violence than workers overall in the United States. Simultaneously, nurses report extremely high rates of stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and burnout. Research has shown that as many as 86 percent of nurses report burnout syndrome and 22 percent of nurses have symptoms of PTSD. This class will investigate the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout and what they mean for nurses today. Using national and state-level data and peer-reviewed literature, we will examine the relationship between the structure and management of the health care industry and risk factors for workplace violence and nurse burnout. Understanding this relationship reveals powerful structural solutions to workplace violence, stress, and burnout for nurses. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Describe the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout among nurses. • Explain the impact of workplace violence and nurse burnout on patient care. • Discuss how direct care nurses can take steps to end the workplace violence and burnout epidemics. Note: CE courses are free to California Nurses Association and National Nurses United members and student nurses. For direct-care and staff RNs. Participants will be notified by U.S. mail and by email if a course is cancelled. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
