Wellbeing Made Easy: How Physicians Can Beat Burnout, Find Happiness, and Look Forward to Every Day with Joy. Presented by: Harjot Singh, M.D. FAPA, Faculty member with American College of Healthcare Executives, whose main area of focus is Wellbeing and Burnout.
The AOA tells the physicians “Caring for patients is your top concern. But it’s more important than ever to devote time to your own health and wellness too.” (1) Physician Burnout causes lower patient satisfaction, reduced health outcomes, and it increases costs. It impairs the physician’s ability to take care of the patients and threatens the IHI’s triple aim – better patient experience, improved health outcomes, at a lower cost. (2). This has caused the IHI to recommend that triple aim must be expanded because you can’t have good patient care without caring for the people who provide it. The fourth aim should be to improve the work life and wellbeing of healthcare providers.(3). The reality is that Physician burnout is widespread and healthcare workplaces are far from creating this reality of quadruple aim.
This program tries to fill this gap. It extends the primary tenet of osteopathic medicine “the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit” to the physician. After this program, the participants will be able to:
1) Describe different components of burnout and how it affects a physician, their patients, and health care systems.
2) Recognize the spectrum from ill-being to wellbeing and learn how the dimensions of wellbeing align with principles of osteopathy
3) Learn common myths about happiness
4) Delineate the Osteopathic approach to physician wellbeing
5) Recognize the evidence-based interventions for wellbeing.
