Course Description

This three-day virtual conference will focus on the tenets of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation. The Gold Foundation champions humanism in healthcare, which we define as compassionate, collaborative, and scientifically excellent care. This event will focus specifically on the power and necessity of connection as the world tries to heal amidst the dual pandemics: Covid-19 and systemic racism. The three-day event will host a series of speakers, panel discussions, and workshops from individuals all across healthcare and the medical education spectrum. We will host a poster session as well as a multimedia art gallery to give others an opportunity to share their research and additional forms of expression as they attempt to reconcile the trauma of the past two years. This event will highlight the importance of provider wellness and resilience and showcase best practices in humanistic practice in both healthcare treatment and education.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity includes practicing physicians of all specialties and subspecialties as well as medical students and residents. Scientists, researchers, nurses, social workers, psychologists are also included in the target audience.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participants should be able to:

1. Identify actionable approaches for enhancing their personal well-being and resilience, as well as the workplace environment and collegiality to reduce the presence of burnout and mitigate its impact.

Demonstrate an understanding of the multitude of factors influencing individuals’ health and wellness, including their personal history, behaviors and social determinants and best practices to address the full range of their needs and preferences and achieve improved health outcomes for the patients they serve.

3. Identify practices and skill-building opportunities for improving the patient- practitioner relationship in ways that will result in improved professionalism, interpersonal and communication skills, collaboration, compassion and action.
