Turn Burnout into Engagement

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​An epidemic of burnout among health care professionals is affecting quality, safety, and health care system performance. To help reverse the worrying trend, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) partnered with experts around the world to create Finding and​ Creating Joy in Work,​ beginning September 11, ​2018. This 12-week virtual training full of new thinking, resources, strategies, frameworks​, and solutions will help workforces truly thrive — not just survive. ​

The learning format of this virtual course includes six weeks of biweekly video content and three group calls (an opportunity for added coaching ​will be added soon). The course will share proven methods to create a positive work environment that fosters camaraderie, meaning, choice, and equity, and ensures the commitment to delivering high-quality care, even in stressful times. ​
