Good morning from the Keck Center @theNASEM where I am so pleased to be part of their workshop this morning to support and sustain the workforce to care for people with serious illness! #hapc #pedpc #wellness #wellbeing #suffering Image
The first panel shared experiences from the front lines so vulnerably and beautifully. @MaguirePeggy @PhilRodgersMD @RachelMayAdams ImageImage
Now @CAPCpalliative CEO @BrynnBHealth discussing the current and future workforce we need in #hapc Image
@BrynnBHealth presents a national #hapc workforce strategy and highlights our need to train the entire workforce in primary palliative care skills (qualifier- this is a bit different in #Pedpc) Image
@BrynnBHealth Highlighting the disparities between racial/ethnic diversity in direct care workers (largely women, non-white, make ~$22k annually) and physicians Image
Next up: Creating a compassionate, caring environment for patients and clinicians with these folks: @theSCCH’s Beth Lown, JoAnne Reifsnyder and Donna Stevens Image
Dr. Reifsnyder- we must make #compassion a priority across the organization AND structure for it. #organizationalcompassion #healthcare Image
Dr. Stevens- we have to operationalize connections in the team. Who is the team? How do they function together, what are the individual needs? @teresapestian @eawtrey
“Recovery might not be possible while still in the system.” - Donna Stevens quoting Stacie Sinclair from @CAPCpalliative
Advocates for sabbaticals from healthcare work to help #HCWs heal.

Day 2 @theNASEM workshop
The highlight from day 1: LaToya, a CNA, gave a moving, honest, courageous account of being a direct care worker. “The ice cream truck should not be a luxury.”
- hours & pay are bad, the work is hard & they love & care their patients & their dignity ImageImage
@theNASEM First up- @EspinozaNotes from @PHInational
The intense focus on direct care workers, paying people a living wage, improving working conditions so that we can also improve patient care during this event has given me so much hope Image
“Social determinants of success at work” is one phrase that stuck out to me yesterday.
@mad_sters doing critical work in this area for direct care workers
But I think about it for others who work in our system too.

Thinking about how the same gesture can be received as incredibly compassionate or just- not- depending on the actor.
Ex- after 4 was in the ED, I took cookies to say thank you. The nurse cried. "No one does this."
But if an org leader did the same, likely different response. 1/
I appreciate that the meaning and receipt of the gesture depends a lot on the power and intention of the person making it.
An org leader can change difficult working conditions and chooses instead to bring cookies, that's incompetent compassion for workers.
I think the best case is to work in a system in which clinicians are so well cared for, that even small gestures by leaders can be received as helpful and a kind of love.
To get to that place requires fixing structural healthcare workplace issues first.
