Building Resilience in Pediatric Practices

  • 17 Oct 2022

The Rhode Island Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP-RI), in partnership with CTC-RI through American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding, invested in exploring how burnout can be identified and resilience can be grown among medical providers who work with children and adolescents. In September 2022, months of planning and collaboration between AAP-RI and CTC-RI led to the creation of a 3-part virtual series for pediatricians in which Dr. Nelly Burdette, CTC-RI IBH Sr. Director / PCHC IBH Assoc. VP, was engaged to bring this vision to reality. Based on the preferences of the AAP-RI stakeholders, the series explored readiness to address resiliency and burnout among pediatricians through 3 virtual events that built upon one another. Each module included approximately 30 minutes of content and 30 minutes of discussion, bridging evidence-based data and unique psychological perspectives to apply either individually, organizationally or communally from a burnout and resilience perspective.

  • Session 1: Individual Approaches to Identifying Burnout and Building Resilience as a Pediatrician
  • Session 2: Organizational Approaches for Pediatricians to Impact Changing Systems around Burnout and Resilience
  • Session 3: Community Approaches to Bridge the Impact of Burnout and Grow Resiliency for Pediatricians
