As a former director of nursing, ..., 20 Oct 2013 [cached]
As a former director of nursing, Larry Brennan understands the demands placed on your clinicians every day. As a ventriloquist and barbershopper - with an exceptionally positive attitude - he believes in the power of humor in healthcare.
Larry's seminars are designed to teach your clinicians how to reduce stress and improve patient outcomes - using humor and a positive attitude. Helping your team learns to smile and laugh at themselves can make a tremendous difference in staff morale.
In addition to speaking at industry events and individual agencies, Larry also provides entertainment at healthcare-related events. Larry is a Thornberry partner in the company's efforts to give back to the home care industry through the creation of a learning community.
Larry can be contacted through his blog.

Thornberry's Health and Humor Ambassador Larry Brennan, RN addressed caregivers at Twin Tier Home Health agency in Binghamton, NY, delivering "Health and Humor 101 for Home Care" training course.Twin Tier was the first agency to request and be selected to have nursing and humor veteran Larry Brennan and his "vent" Charlie work with clinical staff to reduce stress and put the focus on their own health.
Not taking oneself too seriously is an important point in preventing burnout, says Larry Brennan."Nurse and other caregivers have a serious job, but they're human like everyone else and sometimes they need to be reminded about the power of humor in coping in the high-stress health care environment," said Brennan.
Learning the necessary survival skills to stay healthy helps both individual caregivers as well as the agencies and hospices where they work, said Brennan."There is a much greater awareness of the need for work/life balance improvements, greater use of flex-time and bringing in per-diem agency nurses to try and compensate for staff shortages and limit overtime demands on fulltime caregivers.The fact remains however that caregivers have a lot of responsibility and a lot of restraints and frustrations in their job," he said.
Burnout, according to Larry Brennan, can be manifested when support systems fail.
