Until widespread systemic and medical cultural changes are made to improve the workplace pressures that many physicians experience, life coaching and wellness programs can bring relief. Many medical organizations in the United States currently offer such life-saving care for physicians through a physician wellness program.
The LifeBridge Physician Wellness Program™ Tool Kit is a free step-by-step guide to develop a physician wellness program your medical society can offer to members who might be experiencing burnout, stress, or suicidal thoughts.
Our FREE tool kit, funded by a generous grant from The Physicians Foundation, outlines the decision-making process of starting a physician wellness program. Compiled from the best practices of several medical societies’ programs, it includes successful program models and explains funding requirements.
The LifeBridge Physician Wellness Program™ Tool Kit Includes:
The LifeBridge Physician Wellness Program™ Tool Kit was published by a group of about 10 County Medical Society executives from across the nation who have been concerned about the growing tide of distress among their physician members. After successfully launching their own programs and seeing the immediate impact it had on the well-being of their members, they felt compelled to share their learning with others. Their hope is that a broad safety-net is spread to help strengthen the lives of those whose calling involves inherent emotional challenges.
