WELL-B – A Workforce Well-Being Series

Duke Center for Healthcare Safety and Quality, 2021

In an effort to support the emotional well-being of healthcare workers, in 2021 The MHA Keystone Center launched a partnership with the Duke Center for Healthcare Safety and Quality (Duke Health) team led by Bryan Sexton, PhD. More than 5,000 clinical and non-clinical staff from 144 organizations joined in the first 10-week Well-Being Essentials cohort.

Week 1 vs. Week 10

During week one, 70.3% of participants reported being emotionally exhausted. By week 10, less than 50% of participants reported being emotionally exhausted.

In the 2022-2023 program year, there are two WELL-B offerings available for interested healthcare workers.

The second iteration of the cohort model began in November 2022 and monthly webinars will be taking place monthly through Oct. 2023. Members who did not participate in the first cohort are encouraged to listen to the recordings to gain foundational knowledge. CME and ANCC credits are also available for the pre-recorded sessions.

Registration will remain open throughout the series.

Registration is also open for a 5-hour WELL-B Essentials cohort opportunity starting in Jan. 2023. The five interactive sessions will center around cultivating work-life balance, gratitude, self-compassion and awe.

Sessions for the WELL-B Essentials cohort are first come, first serve. Registrants will be assigned to the one-hour sessions from noon to 1 p.m. either Jan. 23 – 27 or Jan. 30 – Feb. 3.

“Thank you so much for your wonderful program and tools! I think the initiatives we have implemented from the program have helped lay a positive foundation for our interactions with staff, as well as hopefully improving the staff’s frame of mind!”
