Four Key Questions Leaders Can Ask to Support Clinicians During the COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery PhaseIndividual clinicians are typically able to step up for a temporary crisis, but when crisis becomes steady-state, the stress can be unsustainable. As a nation, the levels of concern about clinician burnout resulting from the stresses of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic are rising. There is an increased focus on supporting clinicians during the pandemic recovery phase and beyond. This requires health care leaders to authentically and effectively develop strategies to address these stressors and support their clinicians.
Physician Well-being 2.0: Where Are We and Where Are We Going?Although awareness of the importance of physician well-being has increased in recent years, the research that defined this issue, identified the contributing factors, and provided evidence on effective individual and system-level solutions has been maturing for several decades. During this interval, the field has evolved through several phases, each influenced not only by an expanding research base but also by changes in the demographic characteristics of the physician workforce and the evolution of the health care delivery system.
Physicians’ Ratings of their Supervisor’s Leadership Behaviors and Their Subsequent Burnout and Satisfaction: A Longitudinal StudyTo evaluate the relationships between immediate supervisors’ leadership qualities and the subsequent levels and changes in burnout and satisfaction of supervised physicians 2 years later.
How Feedback Is Given Matters: A Cross-Sectional Survey of Patient Satisfaction Feedback Delivery and Physician Well-beingTo evaluate how variation in the way patient satisfaction feedback is delivered relates to physician well-being and perceptions of its impact on patient care, job satisfaction, and clinical decision making.
Colleagues Meeting to Promote and Sustain Satisfaction (COMPASS) Groups for Physician Well-Being: A Randomized Clinical TrialTo evaluate physician small groups to promote physician well-being in a scenario with provided discussion topics but without trained facilitators, and for which protected time was not provided but meal expenses were compensated.
Foster Well-being Throughout the Career Trajectory: A Developmental Model of Physician Resilience TrainingPhysician burnout is common across specialties and largely driven by demands of the current health care industry. However, the obvious need for systems change does not address the unavoidable impact of providing care to those who suffer.

Existing models and approaches to resilience training are promising but limited in duration, scope, and depth.

Healing the Professional Culture of MedicineThe past decade has been a time of great change for US physicians. Many physicians feel that the care delivery system has become a barrier to providing high-quality care rather than facilitating it. Although physician distress and some of the contributing factors are now widely recognized, much of the distress physicians are experiencing is related to insidious issues affecting the cultures of our profession, our health care organizations, and the health care delivery system. Culture refers to the shared and fundamental beliefs of a group that are so widely accepted that they are implicit and often no longer recognized.
