HMO PILOT PROJECT HEALS THE HEALERS
28-Jul-2004
Professor Shlomo Mor-Yosef, Hadassah Medical Center Director General, realized that his emergency team of medical professionals would benefit from some introspective time away from the hospital setting, explains Rita Avramov, head of Social Services at HMO. Therefore, he approached Ms. Avramov about developing a workshop for the emergency team that would strengthen their personal and professional resilience, which is continually challenged as they treat trauma victims day after day.

The two-day workshop, held at a beach resort outside of Jerusalem, aimed to give the emergency team the chance to explore how their heavy professional responsibilities affect their personal and family life, as well as to develop managerial skills. The workshop, reports Ms. Avramov, proved tremendously beneficial as the physicians, nurses, and social workers got in touch with their work style, feelings, and psychological needs.
