Right on the heels of the new feature updates, the MedEd Webs Solutions team is excited to announce the newest addition to the Well-Being Index offerings: the Nurse Well-Being Index. Invented by the Mayo Clinic, the Nurse Well-Being Index is a 100% anonymous, web-based tool that evaluates multiple dimensions of distress in just 9 questions. Nurses perform many duties within a healthcare system. Between increased responsibility, staff shortages, and long hours, nurses are among the most stressed and highly likely to experience burnout. Statistics show 1-out-of-3 nurses report burnout. Burnout has several negative personal and industry repercussions. The Nurse Well-Being Index was created to alleviate these trends by first identifying the problem.
The Nurse Well-Being Index
The Nurse Well-Being Index is a 9-question online assessment where nurses can anonymously assess multiple dimensions of their well-being. Once the user completes the assessment, the tool provides instant feedback and resources based on results. Other features of the Nurse Well-Being Index include the ability to:
- Anonymously compare results to other nurses using a national sample.
- Track well-being scores over time.
- Improve well-being awareness and resiliency.
- Access to resources on topics tailored to the well-being of nurses.
From an admin standpoint, the Well-Being Index has several reporting features that allow admins to track and analyze well-being scores, comparing several factors, completely anonymously. The Well-Being Index tool is easy to implement institution wide and includes several other admin functions.
