posted in: Press Release

ARLINGTON, Virginia., October 21, 2019… Dr. Siddharth Ashvin Shah, Greenleaf founder and CEO, will share his expertise in solutions for workplace trauma and stress at the upcoming CENTILE Conference 2019 on October 29 the Georgetown University Medical Center. The title of his presentation is: “Other Than Burnout, What Hurts? Learner and Clinician Distress from NonWorkload Occupational Exposures in Healthcare Environments.”

The Center for Innovation and Leadership in Education (CENTILE) at Georgetown University is an interprofessional community of educators that drives innovation, excellence, and scholarship in education. The theme of their conference this year is “Strategies to Promote the Wellbeing of Health Professionals in the Learning and Work Environment.”

Learners and clinicians experience several types of exposures that can lead to distress. However, healthcare organizations put most of their focus and resources toward addressing burnout while overlooking many other workplace exposures, including direct and vicarious trauma. Unfortunately, most of these organizations lack systematic approaches for mitigating the causes and detrimental effects of these exposures. In addition, many struggle to keep pace and show leadership in the face of growing incidences, such as active shooter events, or cultural change that bring long-standing wrongs to light, such as sexual misconduct.

Using a trauma-informed approach, Dr. Shah will provide a review of these exposures and the differences between them. He’ll also facilitate small group exercises to study the potential for mishandling such environmental exposures and the resulting human costs.
