The Clinic Workshops

When nurses are supported and valued, we know the organization as a whole is uplifted, all to the benefit of our patients.

Workshops

Compassion fatigue presents multifaceted problems for individuals and systems within healthcare across the United States. As healthcare providers, patients, families, and hospitals suffer its deleterious effects, we are heartened by the clear benefits of arts-driven practices and self-care for those who care the most. Through playful investigation and thoughtful reflection, this 6-week, interactive workshop invites nurses into a strengths-based collaboration with local artists, dancers, and musicians as they imagine new ways of working, being, and caring in hospital settings. Drawing from research-driven practices, personal narratives, and Koloroutis and Trout’s See Me as a Person; Improving the Patient Experience this workshop will creatively combat compassion fatigue from within as a way of creating lasting, systemic change.

Workshops resume in October 2020 please email theclinicperformance@gmail.com for more information.
