The Four Key Components of Clinician Well-Being
Econometrica’s Art Submission for the National Academy of Medicine
Making good on our announcement from last December, Econometrica submitted an original watercolor painting for the National Academy of Medicine’s Expressions of Clinician Well-Being art exhibition. Our watercolor painting depicts the four components that contribute to clinician well-being.
Clinician well-being affects everyone involved in patient care, clinicians and patients alike. Econometrica is committed to advancing the well-being of clinicians through our work on many projects, such as the Patient and Family Engagement in Support of the Partnership for Patients 3.0; Million Hearts Clinical Implementation; and Development, Implementation, and Maintenance of Quality Measures for the Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly. Clinicians deal with high-stress situations and often encounter people at significant moments of their lives. Our formula comprises four components for positive clinician well-being:
- Patient relationships. Clinicians who maintain positive relationships with their patients will feel more positive about their profession and themselves.
- Lifelong learning. Clinicians who are curious and open to learning about advances in the medical field or even those who have hobbies unrelated to medicine have a more positive sense of well-being. Keeping the mind active and engaged can help clinicians feel a sense of purpose and positivity.
- Personal relationships. The medical profession is challenging, and it is important for clinicians to carve out time and space to cultivate personal relationships, which can offer clinicians an immense amount of emotional supp
- Emotional well-being. A clinician who is emotionally healthy and experiences a sense of balance and centeredness will feel better about themselves, enhancing their well-being.
This project was created in collaboration with Mark Stewart, June Chang, and Monique A. Sheppard of Econometrica, Inc.
