In fact, recent U.S. data shows brain injury amongst children ages 0-19 accounts for an estimated 564,000 emergency department visits per year.

Our communities, social environments and the media continually bombard our consciousness with negative news. It is difficult to escape the political divisiveness, increased episodes of incivility and violence in our communities, and even the destructive weather patterns. The presence of Covid-19 has escalated this overall sense of unease, and while many believed the worst of this pandemic was behind us once vaccines were available, sadly it seems, that is not true. Even the best hospitals and healthcare teams have witnessed an ongoing decline in morale that is negatively impacting our staff, reducing their resilience and energy needed to provide our patients with the best quality of care. To address this morale crisis in hospitals we need novel methods of combatting the negativity that has infiltrated our hospitals and healthcare environments. The science of positive psychology offers us evidence-based solutions that can help our teams both personally and professionally to move not just beyond surviving but also to thriving. While there are no quick fixes for what ails our healthcare systems, this webinar will discuss what can be done to focus on the positive and help our teams and ourselves in the process
