    How can we transform the precepting process?

    In this weeks episode we talk about precepting and how we can shift our mindset and make the process more beneficial for all those involved. It can be challenging to constantly be training new students and coworkers and can be a real factor in leading to burnout. On the other end, we all have witnessed firsthand or been a bystander in a poor preceptor relationship and the stress and job dissatisfaction that it causes. We have a choice when it comes to how we will go about training the future of the profession and I hope this episode helps to facilitate positive change.

    How are you responding to the frustrations of TJC changes?

    In today's episode we are diving in to the ways that you can CHOOSE to react to the changes that inevitably occur anytime The Joint Commission or any other surveying body is present in your hospital or employer. I get it, it can be really frustrating to feel like your work flow is being changed or you are being evaluated with a fine tooth comb. Unfortunately, you do not have any control over whether or not these bodies will be coming to your workplace (it is inevitable). However, you DO have control over how you let these frustrations impact your day and how you wish to move forward. My hope is that todays episode will encourage you to react in a productive way for both yourself and your team members.
