Dr. Sullivan is presenting at the 8th International Workshop on Insights in Organizational Justice and Behavior Ethics in Bordeaux, France at the end of this month. She is presenting a paper called, “Justice Conundrums and the Precipice of Moral Injury.”

Catherine Justice is on the planning committee for the launch of two project ECHOs. Live activities in Trauma Informed Care & Health Equity and Integrative Pain Care will be offered to psychologists, physicians, and nurses for CE/CME credit starting June 2024. All are welcome to attend! They are implementing an “All Teach, All Learn” philosophy, which grants medical providers a safe space to learn from one another without pressure to be an expert in everything.

IPW was well represented at the EUREKA (Eliminating burnout through a Unified REsearch agenda: Knowledge to Action) meeting in Durham. Dr. Goelz, Stillman, Sullivan, Linzer, and many other scholars hatched the first phases of a national plan for burnout reduction. There are several papers and developments in process, as well as a first manuscript invited by a top management journal. A learning community of scholars will keep the conversation and development going.


IPW work is moving into new and exciting areas, including challenges and opportunities for rural healthcare leaders, and exploring new dimensions of burnout. This development is being led by Dr. Sullivan, an IPW member at Harvard and Suffolk Universities. 

Dr. Linzer and Dr. Sullivan are planning to host a national conference series starting at Duke University! The goal of this AHRQ (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality) funded grant is to develop a research agenda for burnout reduction. The conference will take place on April 8th.

The abstract, Rural Health Leader Burnout: Prevalence, Cause, & Implications, was accepted for a session at the National Rural Health Association in May 2024. Dr. Sullivan is co-presenting with rural partners, The objectives of the abstract are to understand rural healthcare leader burnout, assess the work-related factors contributing to rural healthcare leader burnout, and identify potential strategies and solutions to improve leader well-being.

Additionally, IPW's very own Catherine Justice is planning to present at the Unite Scientific Nursing Conference in Munich Germany on April 23rd! She will be giving a keynote on Tributaries of Resilience: Navigating Healthcare Burnout, Wellbeing, and System Change.



Catherine Justice and Jordan McWilliams travelled for the Train the Trainer program! 


Catherine led two resiliency and burnout training workshops, one in San Francisco and one in Los Angeles, for Federally Qualified Health Centers across California. This retreat allowed them to meet and work with their first cohort in person.

Jordan and Catherine are looking forward to the continued development of their resiliency training materials and working with future cohorts.
