Summary:

While long hours, shiftwork, and overnight work may be a necessary part of healthcare, there are interventions you can take to help you work safely. And, we can let you know what the interventions are! Have you prepared yourself for long hours on duty? Do you have an ethical responsibility to assess your readiness for work? Do you say “I can handle another shift” and power through on caffeine? Different generations may have various motivations for how they approach shift and overnight work. Join this webinar to discuss strategies and interventions to help you prepare yourself to work at your best during irregular or long hours.
