Webinar: Protecting family and relationship health
Repair burnout by reconnecting with loved ones and mitigating the impact of the job on your family and relationships
EMS providers – in PPE use and decontamination – are diligent in protecting their families from dangerous pathogens they encounter on the job. It’s equally important to protect family members from symptoms of burnout, from stress to fatigue.
The EMS Burnout Repair Kit series, presented by EMS1 and Zoll, will equip individuals at all levels in EMS with tools for dealing with the primary sources of burnout, helping them emerge as better, happier providers and more complete people.
In this installment, our presenters tackle re-entry tips for connecting with family after a difficult shift, the neuroscience of stress management, and strategies for making relationships work during challenging times.
