Purpose / Goal
The Alliance Conversation Series brings you cost-free, fast-paced collaborative opportunities that highlight successful donation and transplantation practices across the country. Through shared insight, multidisciplinary experts identify solutions to critical challenges affecting the community of practice and actively share them for open discussion and broader knowledge of effective practices.
Sessions are designed to be approximately 30-45 minutes in length and encourage real-time feedback and participation from viewers.
Overview: Working in the field of organ donation and transplant involves exposure to unique human stressors. The traditional approach to mitigating the negative impact of these stressors has been to suppress, deny or override. This approach may not be entirely successful. New ways of viewing stress and practices for mitigating the impact of excessive stress during the work shift will be discussed.
- Recognize the unique human stressors inherent in organ donation work.
- Describe the impact of these unique stressors on peak performance in donation.
