The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has published a White paper: Framework on Improving Joy in Work and a series of related videos. Clinician burnout has been well-documented and is at record highs. The same issues that drive burnout also diminish joy in work for the healthcare workforce. Healthcare leaders need to understand what factors are diminishing joy in work, nurture their workforce, and address the issues that drive burnout and sap joy in work. The most joyful, productive, engaged staff feel both physically and psychologically safe, appreciate the meaning and purpose of their work, have some choice and control over their time, experience camaraderie with others at work, and perceive their work life to be fair and equitable.
