CHEF Leadership Education Series presents Resilience Strategies for Reducing Physician Burnout

The Chicago Health Executives Forum?s Leadership Education Series presents Resilience Strategies for Reducing Physician Burnout, to be held Thursday, July 14, 2016 from 4:45 ? 7:45pm at the Prentice Women?s Hospital Conference Center in downtown Chicago.

The program will feature a panel discussion exploring the factors affecting physician burnout with strategies for promoting physician engagement in today?s healthcare environment.? Burnout is described as general feelings of cynicism, a low sense of personal accomplishment, and loss of enthusiasm for work. A study published in 2015 by the Medscape Physician Lifestyle Report indicated that the percentage of physicians reporting burnout increased from 40% in 2013 to 46% in 2015. Clearly, this issue has become a prominent concern in today?s healthcare environment and is critical for healthcare leaders to understand and be equipped with strategies to reduce burnout and promote physician engagement.

  • Richard Cordova, FACHE, Past Chairman, ACHE and President Emeritus, Children?s Hospital Los Angeles
  • Patrick Godwin, MD, FACHE, Chief, Section of Hospital Medicine, Jesse Brown VA Medical Center
  • Barbara Loeb, MD, MBA, CPE, FACP, FACPE, Chief Medical Officer, Tenet Healthcare, Chicago Health System
  • Carlotta Rinke, MD, MBA, FACP, Senior Medical Director, Aetna Accountable Care Solutions, Clinical Transformation

The program will be moderated by Anita Halvorsen, FACHE,? Metropolitan Chicago Regent, ACHE and Regional Growth and Strategy Officer at Presence Health.? She and the panelists will explore the many factors affecting physician burnout and the potential negative consequences for physicians, their patients, and the quality of healthcare delivery in general. Various resilience strategies and practices that can reduce the incidences of physician burnout and promote physician engagement will be discussed. Please join us for this unique event where you will engage with your colleagues and a distinguished panel of healthcare executives on how you are tackling this issue.

Upon conclusion of the panel presentation, our panelist, Richard Cordova, FACHE, a Past Chairman of ACHE, will give a short overview presentation.?? Mr. Cordova will speak to updates in ACHE strategic initiatives, and ways that ACHE brings value to your membership and career advancement.
