Managing the Polarity of Changing the System Versus Personal Resilience - Cynda Hylton Rushton, PhD

In this episode, Dr. Rushton and I talk about the current divide between advocates of system change to improve clinician well-being, and those promoting personal resilience and well-being training. We look at the challenges of managing polarities as leaders embrace a both/and approach to team member well-being. Dr. Rushton shares the specifics of a personal resilience training that equips nurses at Hopkins to stand firm in their ethics and values, and to act as advocates for system improvement without sacrificing their personal well-being. Finally, Dr. Rushton paints a picture of leadership in which clinicians gain empowerment to manage their own well-being while acting as advocates for both their patients and their profession.
