On Monday, March 9, 2020, invited speaker, Stephen J. Swensen, MD, MMM, inspired the STR 2020 audience with his presentation entitled“Co-Creating Ideal Radiology Work: Six Actions to Flourish”.
Dr. Swensen believes that thoughtful health care professionals and administrative leaders can co-create the ideal workplace for professional fulfillment and esprit de corps as antidotes for burnout and compassion fatigue.
Dr. Swensen is former Chair of Radiology and Medical Director for Leadership and Organization Development at the Mayo Clinic, where he co-led the Mayo Clinic Initiative to eradicate professional burnout. He is a Professor at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, and past president of the Society of Thoracic Radiology. Co-authored with Tait Shanafelt, MD, his new book is entitled Mayo Clinic Strategies to Reduce Burnout: 12 Actions to Create the Ideal Workplace.
The STR acknowledges that wellness is an increasingly important topic for physicians in the workplace. Below are some links to helpful resources. Also, look forward to exciting information and activities at the STR annual meeting.
