TXCH APP Symposium
The annual APP symposium for Nurse Practitioners and Physician's Assistants within the TCH Cancer & Hematology center will participate in a day dedicated to mental health and well-being for both the patient’s and families we serve as well as the healthcare providers. This activity will provide a review and discussion of the psychosocial resources available to us within our institutional as well as the benefits of providing opportunities for mental health support while undergoing specialty-care treatment.
Additionally, this educational activity will also serve as a way to teach through practice three simple options of ways to perform self-care to the healthcare providers. Caregiver burden and healthcare provider burnout are well-documented experiences. All too often we neglect ourselves in order to care for our patients, but we know we are better providers when we care for our own personal wellness.
