Building a Menu to Combat Stress

Wednesday, February 24 - 11 am CT

For most of us, self-care is something that happens more in theory than in practice. Let’s change that!

Join Mary Koloroutis for this interactive and engaging conversation with Clinical Education Specialist Kerry Appleton, MAN, RN, CCRN-K. This session will inspire you to think about what self-care means, help you identify what stress looks like on yourself, and learn to evaluate strategies to help build tools to combat reactions to stress.

Session learning outcomes:

  • Participants will identify their common reactions to stress
  • Participants will explore self-care practices, learning why they can be impactful
  • Participants will create a personalized self-care plan
