Time: 12pm ET / 11am CT / 10am MT / 9am PT Co-Sponsored by: SaferCare Texas (formerly the University of North Texas Health Science Center Institute for Patient Safety)

Description: Providers enter the field of health care due to a calling and purpose greater than the self. Unfortunately, the demands of the healthcare system are frequently in contrast to the morals and values of the healthcare professionals within the system. This webinar will describe the conflict between systems and the people within. The presenters will discuss developing team cultures and skills in emotional intelligence and resilience as methods to alleviate environmental factors. The presenters will close the discussion with a request to address health professionals’ morality as it connects to quality.
