Avoid Revolving-Door Whiplash:

 A Fresh Approach to Retention and Success

This lively, eye-opening, and informative workshop brings to light areas that can sabotage success for members of our nursing staff, which can bring about frustration and discouragement leading to an increase in turnover. Commonsense solutions for many of these often unspoken and unaddressed challenges are offered that help build confidence and hone skills to reverse course and lead to longevity of staff and an increase in quality care. Also addressed are special situations including how to interface more smoothly and successfully with 911 and EMS personnel from an EMS provider with tactical training and nursing experience.

Building A Positive Work Environment:

It Begins With Staff

Each one of us has the responsibility and power to influence our environment for good, but sometimes that can be a challenge. In this fun, interactive workshop, Judy Salisbury shows you how to build memories not misery in our unique workplace. Judy teaches you how to leave your baggage or a bad day at the front door and how you can help others to do the same. Judy also exposes the unintentional impact confrontations can have on our staff and residents, which can actually lead to lawsuits, bad press, and unemployment. Also, learn how your organization can disembark from the harmful and hurtful gossip train.

A Commonsense Approach to Emotional Trauma and Why we ask "Why?”

Some life events can leave us depressed, despondent, and even suicidal but it can be especially hard for healthcare workers who suffer in silence. Also impacted by emotional trauma are our residents who feel the pain and loss of their former active life. With a commonsense approach, Judy Salisbury opens up an interactive discussion on the issue of Emotional Trauma; definition, recognition, and options, with hints and tips for helping yourself or others. Moving beyond cold erudition, this workshop also includes a candid, intuitive discussion on why we ask, “Why?” when we experience emotionally painful, life-altering events.

(NOTE: This module is also available for fire, EMS, law enforcement, military personnel, and general, secular, or faith-based audiences as either a workshop or keynote address.)

I would recommend this training to any manager or employee that is interested in learning more about the bridge between EMS and Nursing. Your training made us think more critically about the way we deliver care and how we can innovate to become better at catching the early warning signs of an emergency situation. Thanks again!"
