Redefining Wellness: A Model for Leading During Challenging Times

Courage Track: Physical
In an effort to fight clinician burnout, practitioners at Stanford Medicine WellMD Center created a Model for Professional Fulfillment. This model encompasses 3 domains: Personal Resilience, Culture of Wellness and Efficiency of Practice/Process. While initially designed to support the physician wellness program, the team quickly discovered that the Model has positive systemic impact on all people, especially during these unprecedented times. Not only does the Model focus on the needs of individual employees, it also recognizes the role of the organization to provide both a positive work culture and the tools needed to be successful. Regardless of your industry, this session will provide ideas for using this Model to expand your current scope of wellbeing employee well-being, and collaborate across departments to create sustained change.
Make a mindset shift from burnout to a vision of professional fulfillment
