Professional Health

PHC develops and implements health and well-being programs within organizations designed to prevent burnout and to promote a culture of clinician health and well-being. An engaged, satisfied workforce is associated with improved patient outcomes, increased safety, more compassionate care, and decreased organizational costs. Individualized and group interventions are also available to assist physicians and other professionals with interpersonal skill development, emotional regulation, and distress reduction.

The Quadruple Aim: Multiple factors play a role in workplace success and satisfaction. Health and well-being programs add a fourth aim to the traditional "Triple Aim" of better patient care, improved patient outcomes, and reduced costs in health care organizations. The fourth aim focuses on supporting clinician health and well-being by providing resources, education, and training to promote work-life balance, meaning in work, a sense of support and community at work, and increased control and flexibility in the workplace. Burnout prevention requires both system and individual changes, and PHC assists organizations in identifying and implementing changes to prevent burnout and support clinician health and well-being. 

When an individual's workplace behavior becomes disruptive, counseling and coaching can help identify contributing factors and ameliorate problematic behaviors. Individual counseling sessions for disruptive behavior provide an integrative approach and include psychoeducation, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral interventions, and interpersonal skill development.

 

Group interventions for disruptive behavior provide social support and interpersonal skill development in a safe and supportive learning environment. Clinicians learn to recognize and express emotions that lead to problematic behavior, particularly in the workplace, and they develop strategies for preventing inappropriate behavior.
