CTC and PCMH-Kids programs recognize the importance of clinician (and care team) well-being. We are collaborating with the Primary Care Physician Advisory Committee of the RI Department of Health to help develop solutions which will improve provider well-being. Burnout, stress, and work overload have become a pervasive problem among health care providers in the US. The American Medical Association developed a clinical well-being survey based on the STEPS Forward program which is aimed at increasing professional satisfaction and improving practice efficiency. Using this survey in 2018, we had a very good response and would like to follow up to see how primary care clinicians in Rhode Island are doing now, even if you didn't participate last year.
Please answer the survey questions as truthfully as possible to determine your workplace stress levels and how they measure up against others in your field. Additionally, please encourage all primary care providers (MD, DO, NP, PA) within your practice to also complete the quick survey. It will take approximately 5 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous. Results will be compiled and reviewed at the May 10th Breakfast of Champions which will be focused on clinician and care team well-being.
