Culture War: Positive vs. Negative Resilience Training in Healthcare

Original Air Date: August 22, 2019

Shame and Blame. Perfectionism. Error-Driven. Laser Focused on Mistakes. Does that sound like a description of a winning culture?

The practice of medicine is difficult, and the culture in healthcare can make it harder to deliver excellent patient care. What if we turned our focus to the positive?

There are times when negative resilience training reinforces important lessons. However, there are more times when positive resilience training would have a far greater impact on us, and others, particularly our patients.

In this webinar, SurgeonMasters founder Jeffrey Smith, MD, FACS, CPC, will describe positive and negative resilience training, give examples of each, and offer opportunities to use positive personal and team resilience habits over negative ones.
