Leadership in Support of Physicians and Care Teams

Support, Peer-Coaching, & Counseling

Providers’ behaviors directly impact patient care, safety, and engagement, as well as staff relationships, productivity, efficiency, and workplace satisfaction. Coaching and therapy can help physicians make positive changes in their lives and become more productive. These resources provide coaching and support to help physicians and organizations achieve their goals.

Connection & Social Isolation

When we feel connected, our stress levels are lower, our health is better, and we’re more engaged in our work. We’re better able to serve our passion for helping people and are less likely to feel burned out. Supportive relationships matter. These resources outline how the role of social connectedness plays in combating burnout among medical professionals. 

Burnout, Stess, & Resiliency

Burnout is a long-term stress reaction marked by emotional exhaustion, depersonalization, and a lack of sense of personal accomplishment.  The resources give healthcare providers tools to guard against burnout and compassion fatigue as they provide care to patients and their families.
