Burnout Basics: Lessons learned from developing a resident wellness curriculum to alleviate burnout

Session was held on February 13, 2023.

The past few years have brought unexpected changes to our personal and professional lives, resulting in rising levels of burnout.

In this session, a group of interprofessional panellists will describe their experiences with burnout, and share lessons learned from revamping a palliative care residency wellness curriculum that included key principles and activities providers could bring back to their communities. Rooted in arts-based interventions, the curriculum cultivated empathy, strengthened team relationships, made work-life sustainable, and mitigated burnout.
