Preventing Physician Suicide: Center for WorkLife Wellbeing

Statistics on physician suicide and burnout served as the impetus for ChristianaCare in Newark, Del., to create the Center for WorkLife Wellbeing, which builds support systems to enable physicians to reconnect with the joy and meaning in medicine. The Center’s work is not just about minimizing stress, but also creating the conditions where clinicians can thrive.

Dr. Heather Farley, M.D., MHCDS, FACEP, Chief Wellness Officer, ChristianaCare, also participated in the AHA Physician Alliance's "Preventing Physician Suicide" podcast series. Learn more and listen to the series here.
