Hospitals and health systems are facing a daunting shortage of behavioral health professions, including psychiatrists. In fact, the Health Resources and Services Administration projects the supply of selected behavioral health professionals to be approximately 250,000 workers short of the expected demand in 2025. With organizations competing for scarce workforce resources, staff retention becomes even more important to maintaining a talented treatment team.

Learn how Inova has created a culture that reduces staff turnover rates, and improves the quality of patient care. Hear about initiatives to reduce burnout, increase learning and leading opportunities, and improve retention. And take away strategies that you can implement in your own organization.

If you have questions in advance of the webinar, please contact Rebecca Chickey.
