Rediscovering Meaning In Our Work

Consulting and Education

with a focus on the health and well-being of physicians

 

 

One rarely knows where to begin the search for meaning,

though by necessity, we can only start where we are…

It somehow has to do with sticking together as we try to make sense of chaos,

and that seems a way to begin.

Ann Lamott

 

Research published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings found that when compared with the general U.S. population, physicians experience almost twice the emotional exhaustion and half the satisfaction with work-life balance.

In fact, more than 50% of the physicians in the U.S. are experiencing lessened well being and diminished enthusiasm for professional work.  

Studies emphasize that healthcare system demands and restraints are key contributing factors.

These include:

  • increased administrative and regulatory responsibilities
  • differing perceptions of necessary/appropriate patient care
  • decreased face to face time with patients and peers
  • lack of effective collaboration between physicians and system executives

In response, action collaboratives, including major healthcare organizations nationwide, are prioritizing physician well-being and professional fulfillment, actively promoting research, providing a myriad of resources and identifying effective solutions.

Interestingly, studies highlight a strong correlation between physician health and well being and engagement in meaningful professional work.

We developed Rediscovering Meaning In Our Work to provide physicians with opportunities to meet with peers and colleagues to explore cutting edge ways to:

  • cultivate a greater sense of well being
  • advocate more effectively for collaborative healthcare system transformation
  • engage in professional work that is meaningful and fulfilling
