Workforce Resilience: Promoting Clinician Well-Being

Compassion Fatigue and Burnout are getting a lot of attention locally and nationally. In 2019, the World Health Organization updating its definition of burnout in its 2022 revised handbook of diseases; International Classification of Diseases and specifically ties burnout to “chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed.” In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published a report called To Err is Human that revealed many hospital deaths were due to medical error. This study identified the causal link between clinician well-being, patient care and safety. 

Recognizing the stress and strain on clinicians, in 2018, the NHADACA Board of Directors voted to increase focus on the ethical mandate for provider well-being and self-care. In 2019 NHADACA also joined the National Academy of Medicine’s National Call to Action to address work culture issues that feed this cycle of clinician burnout by publishing an Organizational Commitment Statement. This interactive workshop will briefly review this research and outline steps for becoming a Network Organization. Small group activity will be used as time for discussion and action plan development specific to your agency, group, or practice. Participants will leave with their own action plan specific to their group, agency, or organization needs.  As a result of attending this training, participants will:

1. Understand the the link between workplace culture and provider well-being

2. Describe the Quadruple Aim as a model for a sustainable workforce

3. Be able to identify the steps for becoming a Network Organization

4. Create a plan for developing an Organizational Commitment Statement
