Caring for the Pharmacy Workforce: Wellness Strategies for the Student Pharmacist

Thursday, September 10, 2020, 5:00-6:00 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.  

It is hard enough being a student pharmacist and feeling overwhelmed and isolated. As you are learning a new profession, the external environment has also changed the way in which we work, learn, and live. It is imperative that we are mindful of how we connect to others and continue to care for ourselves. Conversation will highlight tools needed for student and trainee resilience during challenging times. 

No CE will be offered with this activity.
