Action 5: Integrate Professional Wellbeing into Quality Improvement

[to be added]

About the Action


Integrate professional wellbeing measures into an ongoing quality improvement project at your hospital. It is important to consider the impact on your workforce when undertaking any quality improvement project and recognize that workers are at the center of healthcare systems.

Key concept

Quadruple Aim Quality Improvement recognizes professional wellbeing as a key outcome that is essential to improving your hospital.1 It helps ensure that quality improvement projects do not compromise professional wellbeing and rather measure the impact of these projects on the workforce.2
