April 14, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Principles and Characteristics of Emotional Intelligence in Healthcare

The relationship between an organization’s employees internally, and with patients, external stakeholders, and supporting people externally, is critical to the success of healthcare organizations. In today’s fluid environment, cognitive intelligence and technical skills are only part of individual and team effectiveness. Leaders and staff must utilize emotional intelligence or emotional quotient, which includes self-awareness, self-management, motivation, authenticity, empathy, adaptability and resilience. The impact of emotional intelligence can influence better patient outcomes and higher quality of care, as well as reduce staff burnout. This panel discussion will provide an overview of EI and examples of how it affects healthcare delivery.
