It gives them powerful new perspectives and tools for recovering from the events of these fraught times.

Connie Merritt, RN, BSN, PHN uses the following justifications to complete CEU requirements:
- The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reported healthcare providers experiencing stress and burnout may not be able to perform efficiently and effectively because their physical and cognitive resources may be reduced; this suboptimal performance may affect patient care and its safety.
- A key recommendation from the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine (IOM), Initiative on the Future of Nursing) is to ensure that healthcare providers engage in learning the communication skills needed to provide care for diverse populations, which directly impact clinical outcomes.
