CDC Releases Guide to Improve Healthcare Workforce Wellbeing

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) released an evidence-informed and actionable guide for the nation’s hospital leaders to improve healthcare worker wellbeing – Impact Wellbeing™ Guide: Taking Action to Improve Healthcare Worker Wellbeing.

The Guide outlines six key steps for hospital leaders to take, which were pilot-tested and refined with a working group comprised of six U.S. hospitals:

  1. Conduct a review of your hospital’s operations to determine how they support professional wellbeing.
  2. Build a dedicated team to support professional wellbeing at your hospital.
  3. Remove barriers to seeking care, such as intrusive mental health questions on credentialing applications.
  4. Develop a suite of communication tools that help you share updates with your workforce about your hospital’s journey to improve professional wellbeing.
  5. Integrate professional wellbeing measures into an ongoing quality improvement project.
  6. Create a 12-month plan to continue to move your hospital’s professional wellbeing work forward.

CDC/NIOSH will host a webinar series, beginning in late April 2024, for hospital leaders to learn how to use each section of the Guide. The goal is for participating hospitals to start implementing the Guide immediately after the webinar series. Click here to learn more.
