Interdisciplinary Support to Promote Wellness During Crisis

The team at Rush University System for Health in Chicago demonstrates their approach to developing, implementing, and refining their “Caring for the Health Care Workforce” plan.

How physicians and other health care workers are supported during a time of acute stress impacts whether they are able to cope and then recover from the crisis, or alternatively, whether they will adopt unhealthy coping mechanisms and show signs of stress injury (eg, burnout, insomnia, dysphoria) or even worse, chronic stress illness (eg, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD], substance abuse).

Successful organizations take a systems approach and focus on becoming a resilient organization prior to times of crisis, rather than limiting their efforts to a focus on individual resilience or only attending to the well-being of health care workers after crisis develops. Watch the team at Rush University System for Health in Chicago as they demonstrate their approach to developing, implementing, and refining their “Caring for the Health Care Workforce” plan.
