Practical Well-being Leadership for Hospitalists: The SHM Well-being Toolkit


Work stress in hospital medicine has risen substantially due to the pandemic, with recent data suggesting two thirds or more of hospitalists in most practices are burned out. The Society of Hospital Medicine has devoted substantial effort in the last two years to create tools addressing hospitalists’ current needs, including the Well-being Toolkit, a practical guide built by hospitalists, for hospitalists. The Toolkit includes numerous evidence-based approaches anyone in our field can use to enhance well-being at the individual, group, and system level. Join us to learn more about the Toolkit, how to use it, and expected benefits.

Learning Objectives:
  1. Explore the latest science on burnout and professional fulfillment in hospital medicine. 
  2. Discuss the importance of developing capacity for hospitalists to improve well-being in their organizations.
  3. Learn practical steps hospitalists can take to promote well-being for themselves, their peers, and their organizations.
