Healthcare professionals are very engaged despite the extreme stress they face day in and day out. It is no surprise that burnout is on the rise in healthcare professionals, nurses and doctors alike. Burnout is a syndrome of mental and physical exhaustion, mental distance, and reduced professional efficacy, all of which pose a risk to healthcare professionals but more importantly to their patients, as burnout is linked with reduced quality of care. How can we combat burnout and foster engagement? Coaching may be part of the solution.
In this webinar, we bring science and practice together in coaching research focused on healthcare professionals, and look more closely at the antecedents and consequences of nursing burnout. We share insights from an ongoing IOC-ICF funded research project into the effects of coaching on nurse well-being as well as lessons learned for its implementation.
The IOC is a global community of coaches.
