Caring for the Pharmacy Workforce: Wellness Strategies for the Pharmacy Leader

Thursday, August 27, 2020, 3:00-4:00 pm ET

ASHP has been committed to supporting the well-being and resilience of the pharmacy workforce for decades. We have been even more focused on supporting members the last few years given recent evidence and impact of burnout on patient safety and the healthcare workforce. During COVID-19, demands and stress on the pharmacy workforce have increased to an even greater extent. ASHP is planning several webinars that will give listeners tools and resources to cope during this time.  

Leadership during crisis can be both challenging and rewarding. We have changed the way we work, learn, and live. We must be mindful of how we lead, connect to others, and care for ourselves. In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic, the racism pandemic must additionally drive leaders to action. Here we will talk about tools needed for leader and team resilience during challenging times. 

No CE will be offered with this activity.
