April 30, 2019 – 2:00-3:00 PM ET

This webinar describes a creative, cost-effective and benchmarked chaplaincy-led support program for clinical staff called Tea for the Soul.  Clinical providers and hospital staff experience daily emotional and physical stress as they care for very sick patients and their families in high pressure situations.  This cumulative and unrelieved stress can leave staff feeling depleted, fatigued, and at risk for burnout.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the purpose and methodology of the Tea for the Soul initiative for staff support.
  • Identify three key elements of the Tea for the Soul experience that enhance staff resiliency and staff engagement.
  • Explain the impact of this support program for increased staff resilience and satisfaction, as well as increased empathy and compassion for patients.
