Stress Reduction Strategies for Nurses: Revitalize Your Practice is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on May 14, 2019 at Hilton Chicago/Oak Lawn, Oak Lawn, Illinois, United States of America. Target Audience • Nurses • Nurse Practitioners • Clinical Nurse Specialists • Nurse Educators Course Description: Plan to join Sara Lefkowitz for this revitalizing workshop. Sara really understands nurses and the complexities of working in the healthcare environment. She has synthesized materials from important thought leaders in the fields of stress reduction, compassion and nursing to present to you powerful and useful tools to incorporate into your nursing practice. Multiple demands, fast pace, change and complex situations are common in healthcare environments. This leads nurses to experience the acute and chronic effects of stress. During the stress reaction, the body is flooded with stress hormones. Sara will demonstrate exercises to calm the nervous system. The goal is to develop mindful RESPONSES to stressful events in place of harmful stress REACTIVITY. Mindful responses to stress will help you stay balanced and focused in the midst of a busy day and increase the effectiveness of your nursing practice. Nurses work with people in crisis. We can become distressed and overwhelmed by other people's trauma and illness. This contributes to burnout and compassion fatigue. Sara will teach you techniques to develop emotional boundaries and to work successfully with difficult emotions. Patients and colleagues want to feel seen and heard. The skillful choice of words and good listening can turn potential conflict into collaboration. Learn effective mindful communication techniques. Sara is confident that this workshop will help nurses regain their sense of vitality, purpose and desire to make a difference in the world. Enroll now for a life- and career-changing event!
