Summary:

Healthcare workers live with the reality that people need care beyond standard business hours, including evenings, nights, weekends, and holidays Shifts can become very long stretches of time where one needs sustained focus and alertness. With the number of millennials in nursing doubling and baby boomers’ retiring rates increasing, how will the workforce change? Millennials place a higher significance on meaning and professional development than pay alone. How will this affect night workers? Can “a little” fatigue impair your thinking? Is working at night the same as working during the day as long as hours are consistent? Join this webinar to discuss the statistics and research concerning healthcare worker fatigue, overnight work, and safety in order to support and equip and protect the night shift and on-call heros who work while others rest.

Objectives:

The goal of this presentation is to discuss the reality of healthcare worker fatigue. Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
  • Describe the possible adverse effects of working while fatigued
  • Identify the data surrounding fatigue in healthcare staff
  • Review how the healthcare team can work together to support fatigue awareness

This course summarizes everything we have been trying to convey to upper management, and has statistics to support the information as well as ideas to implement. (BTW: our night differential was taken away, but it's a good thing--we still have a job.)
