CHP/MSON to host event to encourage self-care for healthcare workers

Detroit Mercy’s College of Health Professions & McAuley School of Nursing will host a resiliency event titled, “Remember, Reclaim, Rejoice: International Self-Care for the Interprofessional Team.”

The free virtual event is set for Wednesday, May 11 from 12-4:30 p.m.

It includes presentations by nationally recognized health professions experts Patricia Coleman-Burns, Judi Fouladbakhsh and Christine Griffin. Nutrena Tate, associate professor and associate dean of the College of Health Professions & McAuley School of Nursing, will serve as moderator.

The event is designed to encourage participants to reflect on current practices of self-care; offer new perspectives concerning diversity, equity and inclusion; introduce initiatives to assist in clinical practices; and explore the ability to experience compassion without fatigue. Additionally, this event is approved for Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits.

Presentations include:

  • “Belonging and Self-Care through the Lens of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion” by Patricia Coleman-Burns, University of Michigan assistant professor emerita of Nursing
  • “A Yoga Model to Guide Trauma-Informed Clinical Practice” by Judith Fouladbakhsh, Oakland University associate professor
  • “Resiliency in Healthcare: Experiencing Compassion without Fatigue” by Christine Griffin, Queens Medical Center director of Caring Science

The event will also include the closing of the Sigma Theta Tau Lambda Zeta Chapter silent auction, which opens online April 30. In addition to making the conference possible, the proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Sophia’s House at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s, Mercy Education Project, and nursing research scholarships through the Lambda Zeta Chapter.

Those who are unable to attend will be able to access a recorded version and IPCE contact hours until May 11, 2023.
