Creativity: An Antidote to Health Care Worker Burnout?
November 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Northeast MHTTC presents: Once considered the product of genius or divine inspiration, creativity — the ability to spot problems and devise smart solutions — is now recognized as a prized and teachable skill. Study of creativity is unfortunately not part of the formal curricular instruction in most academic healthcare settings. Creativity positively impacts clinical care, teaching effectiveness, and breakthroughs in research. However, time constraints, limited opportunities for fresh observations and emotional exhaustion seem to have restricted our ability to cultivate creativity in our chore filled and task-oriented lives. Creativity thus becomes a valuable tool to mitigate the destructive impact of burnout in healthcare workers.
