Why do you think SafeHaven™ is a necessary program?
SafeHaven™ has been developed to support physician and other provider well-being. Our well-being is essential to promote joy in work, fulfill our professional and personal goals, and achieve best outcomes for the patients we serve.
The environment in which we practice, exposes us to enormous pressures, placing physicians and other clinicians at high risk of burnout. Burnout is largely due to systems and external not individual factors, such as time pressures, a chaotic work environment, low sense of control, burdens of EHRs, and personal and family responsibilities. We must first recognize how we are being affected by the stresses of clinical practice, and identify strategies that will be most beneficial to us.
That’s where SafeHaven™ comes in. The resources help providers recognize burnout and understand how it is affecting their practice, patients, family and health and well-being. SafeHaven™ provides an extensive suite of services including self-assessment tools, WorkLife concierge services, professional coaching, and in-the-moment support counseling to help physicians and clinicians strategize how to address burnout and achieve joy in work and overall well-being. These confidential support services have been so helpful to me and my family as I have worked on reducing the stresses of my professional life achieving a healthier work life balance.
