DURATION: 2 days 9-3:45 PM ET
VENUE: Georgian College - 1450 8th St E, Owen Sound, ON N4K 5R4


The world has experienced a collective trauma through the COVID-19 pandemic. The long-term impact to health care workers serving on the front-lines is incalculable. Canadian physicians were demonstrating disproportionally higher rates of burnout, depression and suicidal ideation before the pandemic: they were already a traumatized workforce. Further mental health impacts and workforce shortages are predicted among health care workers after the pandemic. Medical leaders may be unaware of the role trauma plays at the individual, team and system levels. This course develops leadership skills to foster recovery, build wellness and promote post-traumatic growth in the health care workforce. Delivered as an interactive workshop, it will facilitate a shift to a wellness-informed mindset and encourage you to apply key wellness-informed leadership practices at all levels.


  • explore the types of trauma experienced by physicians;
  • examine the impacts of trauma at the individual, team and system level;
  • reframe physician burnout through a trauma lens;
  • discover the principles of trauma-informed (TI) approaches;
  • analyze how to translate TI principles into leadership practice;
  • recognize how TI principles apply at the system level to create trauma-informed teams and trauma-informed health care organizations; and
  • develop an action plan to bring TI principles to your leadership practice with team/organizational metrics to measure culture shift.
