Webinar About When the Crisis Finally Ends: Preventing Post-Traumatic Stress in our Health Care Workforce

April 7 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm EDT
Virtual via Zoom

Many of our frontline workers have experienced intense trauma during the COVID-19 pandemic from repeated exposure to the loss of life, inability to support grieving family members, critical supply shortages for self-protection and patient care, pandemic denial even as health facilities are overwhelmed, and more. Repeated exposure to traumas can easily develop into post-traumatic stress.

 

Join our panelists, Rosemary Patterson, LCSW, and Marisa Iacobucci, MS, MSW, for a roundtable discussion on what we can do to prevent and manage post-traumatic stress. Our panelists, social workers with significant experience in trauma and stress, will share their expertise on addressing trauma, healing, and moving forward. They will discuss the spectrum of trauma, along with prevention and treatment strategies for post-traumatic stress. There will be several hands-on demonstrations of mindfulness activities to practice when stress threatens to overwhelm.

Webinar: Enterprise Service Management vs. IT Service Management

April 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Service management principles have evolved beyond only pertaining to IT processes. While other departments, such as HR and facilities, have always offered services, they were not so familiar with using frameworks or principles to manage that service delivery, as has been done in IT. We’ve started to see adoption of IT Service Management (ITSM) concepts or ITIL by other departments throughout organizations. Thus, the name “enterprise service management” was born. Join this webinar on Tuesday, April 13 at 12 p.m. to learn how your IT department has become like a “hub” in a spoke-and-wheel-type concept allowing your organization to use service management to automate workflows across the enterprise.
