Gerard Clancy, MD
Professor of Psychiatry and Emergency Medicine
Sr. Assoc Dean, University of Iowa Health Care
Past President, University of Tulsa and University of Oklahoma, Tulsa
Prior to COVID, "burn out" had climbed to a rate of 39% of practicing US physicians. With the arrival of the pandemic, "burn out" rates climbed to 63%. Mounting evidence suggests this new psychological state of distress among many physicians is "More Than Burn Out". Beyond the traditional definition of "burn out", this encompasses moral injury similar to combat veterans, exhaustion in maintaining access to quality care in light of significant workforce staffing shortages and higher levels of vigilance for physical and psychological safety in the healthcare workplace. Dr. Clancy will provide concrete strategies and tactics physicians and health systems can take to address this new version of distress that is "More Than Burn Out". His insights come from his work as a pyschiatrist embedded in a Level 1 Emergency and Trauma Center as well as a consulting psychiatrist for the critical care services of a 1,000-bed academic health center.

Anthony Orsini, DO
Keynote Speaker, Author and Practicing ICU Physician
The ability to communicate well and form trusting relationships with patients and staff are the keys to success in medicine. Yet, the increasing challenges placed on healthcare professionals have caused many physicians and nurses to become more task oriented than patient oriented, forgetting why they became physicians in the first place. This has led to record job dissatisfaction, physician burnout and staff turnover. In this engaging lecture, Dr. Orsini discusses how physicians and healthcare professionals can improve patient satisfaction, clinical outcomes and their own well-being by creating a culture that encourages strong relationships with patients and fellow team members. Described as inspirational, this presentation will inject new enthusiasm into anyone involved in the care of patients and staff and remind them why they chose medicine in the first place.
