Why Focus on Wellbeing?
- 24 Downloads
Without a focus on wellbeing at a personal and institutional level, physicians are at risk for loss of health (both physical health and mental wellbeing), loss of relationships, loss of employment and even loss of life. Likewise, healthcare institutions risk loss of employees, income, and reputation due to impaired patient safety and patient satisfaction. On a societal level, focusing on the wellbeing of physicians and other health care providers is important to insure a competent and motivated team to care for those who are ill or injured, both now and for the future.
