Psychology for the Body
Providing Scientific Solutions to
Reduce Healthcare Worker Burnout and Improve the Patient Experience
Interactive Workshops for Healthcare Organizations
The 2 factors that have the greatest impact on both clinical and financial outcomes for healthcare organizations are clinician burnout and patient experience. High clinician burnout leads to increased employee turnover rates causing organizations to lose money by having to find and train new staff. Poor patient experience results in fewer referrals and a lower census leading to lower revenue.
We at Psychology for the Body can help you improve clinical outcomes and revenue by training and coaching your leadership team and clinical staff on unique strategies to reduce clinician burnout, improve emotional intelligence and communication, and improve the patient experience.
Below are the healthcare organizations we have partnered with in providing workshops and consulting:
