- Completion of clinician survey on clinician well-being with subsequent implementation of an improvement plan based on the results of the survey.
- Completion of training regarding clinician well-being with subsequent implementation of a plan for improvement.
Improve the well-being of clinicians and the quality and safety of care they deliver.
Evidence of activities to improve clinician well-being, defined by Chari et al. (2019) as a “concept that characterizes quality of life with respect to an individual’s health and work-related environmental, organizational, and psychosocial factors. Well-being is the experience of positive perceptions and the presence of constructive conditions at work and beyond that enables workers to thrive and achieve their full potential.” Include one of the following first two elements and the third element:
1) Report on clinician well-being – Report including collected data on clinician well-being and resilience (e.g., survey results); OR
2) Staff training – Documentation of staff training on clinician well-being (e.g., training certificate, letter, training materials); AND
3) Implementation of a clinician well-being improvement plan – Documentation of a clinician well-being and resilience improvement plan, based on the results of the clinician well-being survey or staff training.
