Caregiver burnout is well documented and on the rise. To address some of the underlying issues and improve patient and provider safety, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) has developed a framework and set of recommendations known as "Joy in Work." Organizations across the country are testing how to apply the principles with encouraging results. If you want to learn how one clinical team at Michigan Medicine, spearheaded by Diane Lopez with help from Jamie Beach, has changed what was once a toxic culture in a medical unit, this episode of WIHI is for you.
