More on The Well-Being Index
The Mayo Clinic-Invented Well-Being Index is a web-based assessment tool that accurately and 100% anonymously measures levels of burnout and stress in a nine-question survey. The tool is designed to measure burnout, provide valuable resources when they're needed most, and track well-being over time to promote self-awareness. The ultimate goal of the Well-Being Index is to end burnout among professionals and reduce the adverse consequences that come with the strain.
The different versions of the Well-Being Index allow the institution to track and compare overall well-being with that of the rest of the nation. Being able to track well-being over time results in a more effective wellness program for the organization.
Has your institution been implementing a successful wellness plan? Do you know the burnout level of your physicians, nurses, residents, or medical students?
