Blue Cottage of CannonDesign’s Jann Gao and Adam McKillop have co-authored an article for ISE Magazine about managing healthcare worker burnout, stress, fatigue and turnover.

The article draws attention to the unprecedented change the healthcare ecosystem faced amid COVID-19, and the higher stress levels, burnout, fatigue, dissatisfaction and turnover that resulted. It also draws attention to the unique opportunities that exist for leaders to facilitate positive change effectively while maintaining the wellness of the entire ecosystem. Jann and Adam co-authored this article with Jeff Bean, Shay Bergmann, Bethlyn Gerard, Wyatt Hockmeyer, Matt Vogl and Colin West.
