Changing the Way We Work: Well-Being in Healthcare Workplaces, Policies, and Practices
The circumstances of the last several years have exacerbated ongoing challenges of stress, fatigue, burnout, and mental strain among healthcare workers, leading to significant turnover, and decreased employee engagement. There is an overdue need to innovate and change how we work by addressing the environments, policies, programs, and practices we use to support the healthcare workforce's well-being. During this year's Healthcare Summit, we will connect the dots between healthcare organizations' employee health and well-being obstacles with potential system-level solutions.
After completing this session, participants will be able to:
1. Identify and discuss trends in healthcare workplace policies, programs and practices that lead to unintended burdens on healthcare workers.
2. Identify successful workplace well-being practices that can be adapted and implemented in healthcare settings to retain care teams and inform strategy.
3. Discuss future directions for healthcare research to explore system-level changes to positively impact healthcare workforce well-being and organizational outcomes.
