You’ve often spent a great deal of time, energy and money to become a healthcare professional. You’ve finally landed the position you had hoped for. But sometimes it isn’t as rewarding as you had dreamed. Despite any disappointments you may have, you must perform to the established standards with diligence and grace. The healthcare field can easily burn out even the most energetic professional. Challenges are abundant and the stakes are high.
This deck was created to help professionals build Skills & Attitudes to combat burnout. Use it to start conversations with family and friends who may not recognize the issues you face. Share it with your co-workers as a way to connect, communicate and release some potentially familiar frustrations and plan strategies to cope.
It can also be used as a teaching tool for students and newly licensed professionals in order to build resilience against future burnout. Bring patients and providers together to learn from one another. Have providers respond to challenges drawn from the Healthcare Dilemma deck and patients respond to challenges drawn from the Healthcare Professional deck.

- If you are just joining our game, please follow this link for a little background information on how we are playing this particular game.
BounceBack will be available for purchase via our website soon. We’d like to introduce you to BounceBack by playing a bi-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) game on our homepage using our free Downloadable Demonstration Deck.
Your Challenge Card from our Downloadable Demonstration Deck is featured above. Once you’ve dealt with the challenge, magnify your screen and take a close look at the bottom of the card. There you will see the Skills & Attitudes we feel might be most helpful in managing the scenario. You can also use other skills and attitudes that you find helpful as long as you can explain how you would apply them. We challenge you to find new ways of responding to adversity.
Which of these Skills & Attitudes will you choose to apply?
Follow along alone, with a friend or a group. Talk to others and find out how they would respond. We can learn much from one another. But if we wish to learn from our experiences, we must first get through them.
Please feel free to contact us with your feedback.
