Professional Engagement: What’s In It for Me?

About the Webinar

Current health care delivery places high expectations on PTs to improve the health of populations, reduce costs, and improve the patient care experience. These demands are heightened by recent changes in how care is delivered with Covid-19 issues. Emerging data suggests that student debt and other current workplace factors may be creating job strain in physical therapists. The presenters will discuss job stress issues that can place individuals at risk for burnout and compassion fatigue, including tools for early identification and strategies for intervention for the individual, manager, colleagues and the organization. This presentation will include the results from a recent national study of physical therapists investigating factors related to professional engagement. 

Educational Objectives:
Differentiate the key features of professional engagement, workplace engagement and job satisfaction. 
Differentiate factors that may contribute to job stress, burnout and compassion fatigue, including changes in practice related to Covid-19.  
Identify tools for early identification and intervention of burnout/compassion fatigue.
Discuss results of a national survey of physical therapists related to professional engagement.
