Burnout and Resilience in Healthcare Professional Practice
Find What Makes You Strong
"I feel like this course gave me permission to share when I am feeling I am struggling. That internalising stress, guilt and concerns isn’t super helpful. It’s okay to consider my own thoughts and feelings and health as a priority". Trudi, Midwife.
If you are an exhausted disillusioned healthcare professional then you are not alone. Burnout is prevalent among us. It is so prevalent I think we are sick to death of hearing about it.
On an individual level though - it is worth thinking about - it is really important to consider.
Maybe don't think burnout - that might be too hard, too depressing, too last year.
Think resilience, think thriving not surviving. And think...
FIND WHATEVER IT IS THAT MAKES ME STRONG
Healthcare professionals work hard and have many different experiences as you well know.
Whilst most are fabulous, some experiences are difficult. And long hours, stressful working conditions, and huge responsibility can take it's toll.
The numbers are up there when it comes to Burnout and Compassion Fatigue in healthcare professionals - as in 60% up there.
The brutal truth and the fact of the matter is, that after training for many years to enter a profession, along with all the sacrifices that you have made along the way - many of you will burnout out, fizzle up, and get so disillusioned that you leave. Boof - over. Done. And that my friends - well that is a hugely disappointing waste!
Building resilience is an important part of maintaining a healthy, safe and enjoyable career. It is also part of being a competent and confident, capable healthcare professional. But it is not intrinsic, it is learned, and it is practiced, and it is proactive. If professional resilience builds by chance you are lucky. More often than not it doesn't - you just get to the point of not wanting to do it anymore and leave. Or the self preservation and "resilience" we build comes in the form of resentment, cynicism and disengagement.
Join this course to investigate what it is you need in order to be a healthcare professional that is resilient and sustains the passion and joy, job satisfaction and life balance that we all deserve.
We give so much care and respect to others - we really do need to give the same care and respect to ourselves.
So, join us, and get informed and equipped so you can be the HCP that both loves their career AND has a life.
Also, join us if you work in a team with others. You may be able to help those in your team that really could do with a "pick me up and set me back on the right path".

Welcome to Simply Midwifery and Healthcare Professional Education and Development.
These online professional education and development courses are designed with you in mind.
As a nurse then midwife of 29 years (2020) I know what it is like to keep up and keep progressing year after year. We want to learn the latest information, revisit that which we know, but sometimes life takes over and where do we find the time?
That is why these online courses have been designed to bridge the gap between the wanting to do and the doing.
Relevant, relatable, timely and full of thought provoking practice issues, my hope is that "continuing education" and meeting your professional development needs is enjoyable and inspiring.
We keep up to date with what is new or challenging in our professional and practice lives, and aim to provide up to the minute courses that meets varying individual needs.
Got an idea for a course? Something you think we can do with knowing more about? Let us know!
I have practised as a nurse, as a midwife, and spent quite a few years as a clinical educator in undergrad and postgrad education and development here in NZ. Apparently I am pretty good at educating - thanks! :)
I discovered recently that I "lead with blue and yellow" ... meaning I love data, information, getting deep into it, making sense of it, and sharing it (blue), and that I also love to engage with people ALOT! (yellow). And that I also have green when it matters - so I also care - which is good to know ;)
"This course provided deeper insight into burnout and recognising early warning signs and how I can strategise to create a safer, more sustainable practice. It helped me to feel less isolated in some of my own experiences and feelings thus far as a new graduate community midwife" Emily, New Graduate Midwife
