Well-being Champion Resources That Facilitate Networking and Interventions
As emphasized by an article recently published by the Mayo Clinic Proceedings and the U.S. Surgeon General's Advisory on Building a Thriving Health Workforce, the occupational burnout and dissatisfaction among physicians necessitate system-level interventions.
In this issue of I.M. Thriving, we provide the necessary tools for Well-being Champions to implement timely interventions in their chapters and organizations to tackle work-related stress and promote well-being. We also provide opportunities for networking, particularly in group coaching.
We look forward to hearing from you! Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your thoughts and suggestions for newsletter topics and features.
