Thriving in Rural Health

From Surviving to Thriving in Rural Healthcare

Rural healthcare leaders are actively transforming their patient care delivery and undergoing rapid changes as a result of the Coronavirus. These changes have also contributed to an increase in staff burnout, and mental health exhaustion. Despite this, the future of rural health is bright and the resilience of the rural healthcare workforce can inspire those in hospital and medical settings to take action. Advancing resilience requires characteristics such as acceptance of change, the ability to maintain optimism, and perseverance. We’ll examine the most significant challenges to sustaining a resilient workforce and strategies to transform your organization’s strategic plan.
