Presented by: Andrea Ellis, MD
Chief Physician Wellness Officer
CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic
Even before COVID-19, burnout among clinicians and nurses has been a growing problem with far-reaching impacts on patient care, employee engagement and the bottom line. As a family physician and Chief Physician Wellness Officer for CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic, Dr. Ellis will share what support clinicians need most during the pandemic and what leaders and organizations can do to help create a culture of wellness and engagement.
Dr. Ellis is Board-Certified in Family medicine and has been working as a Family Physician at CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic since 2011, where she’s also been the Chief Physician Wellness Officer since 2020. She was honored with the clinic’s Excellence in Leadership Award in 2019, as well as the Patients’ Choice Award in both 2019 and 2020. Dr. Ellis is on the Tyler School of Medicine Steering Committee and is a physician volunteer at Bethesda Clinic. Her past presentations on Caregiver Burnout and Support have been timely and well-received. We are so glad to have her with us for this event to discuss what can be done to help replace caregiver burnout with caregiver wellness and engagement.
