Physician Health: Improving the Health and Wellbeing of America's Healthcare Workforce
Addiction impacts about 10 percent of the general population and has the same prevalence rate in healthcare providers. One of the most tragic outcomes of untreated addiction and mental health conditions is suicide and it is on the rise among healthcare providers. Whether you treat healthcare providers, care about your colleagues or have suffered yourself, understanding how, where and when to get help is critical. Dr. Goldenberg has presented workshops and educational seminars at national and local conferences and will be joining us to discuss this very important topic. He will also share his thoughts on how improving the health and wellbeing of the health care provider workforce can improve patient outcomes and reduce medical costs.
