Charter for Physician Well-being in JAMA

I missed this April, 2018 JAMA article and wonder whether you have too.

Authors Thomas, Ripp, and West propose a set of guiding principles to support physician wellness:

• Effective patient care promotes and requires physician well-being.
• Physician well-being is related with the well-being of all members of the health care team.
• Physician well-being is a quality marker.
• Physician well-being is a shared responsibility.

The problems are real. Conversations about this topic are becoming mainstream. Let’s all work together for change. We, our colleagues, our patients, our families, and our communities need healthier physicians.
