About This Course:

It is believed individuals from the same generation are influenced by common life events that help shape values and behaviors. However, today’s healthcare system involves complex interactions between providers and consumers from different generations. Cross-generational differences can present challenges for clinicians when developing therapeutic relationships with patients/clients and effective working relationships with colleagues. This workshop will explore issues that may arise from the four current generations in the workplace. The knowledge gained by clinicians will assist them with students during clinical educational experiences, with peers, and with others who they may supervise in the clinic. The evolving “picture” of professionalism and implications for the future will be discussed.


Course Objectives

At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the four generations that currently make up our workforce
  • Discuss the challenges that occur when four generations interact
  • Compare and contrast the attributes of professionalism as it exists in each generation
  • Understand the teaching and learning challenges that exist in current classrooms
  • Discuss recruitment and retention issues as they relate to the younger generations
