Institute offers self-care course at no cost to all health professionals during February

The California State University Shiley Institute for Palliative Care will offer its self-paced Self-Care and Resilience course at no cost in February to support frontline health professionals in the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

A November report by the California Health Care Foundation found doctors, nurses and other health providers are “experiencing significant emotional and mental impacts from caring for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic, with between half and two-thirds…saying they feel emotionally drained, frustrated, overworked, and burned out.”

The Institute’s online self-care course explores the importance of self-care and the risks of moral distress and burnout among health care clinicians. It delivers evidence-based self-care skills to guard against burnout, as well as effective strategies for integrating self-care habits into daily practice.

Those complete the course will earn 1 continuing education (CE) hour or continuing medical education (CME) hour.

This limited time offer expires Feb. 28, 2021. To access the course, visit
