Applying QI Frameworks to Improve Well-Being

Chris Sinsky, MD is the Vice President of Professional Satisfaction at the American Medical Association. A board certified internist, she also practices at Medical Associates Clinic and Health Plans in Dubuque, Iowa. Dr. Sinsky has worked to elevate national awareness of health professional well-being as an important driver of health system performance. From 2011 to 2012 she led "In Search of Joy in Practice: A Report of 23 High-Functioning Primary Care Practices," a project of the ABIM Foundation. She also co-authored the 2013 paper "From Triple to Quadruple Aim: Care of the Patient Requires Care of the Provider." At the AMA she leads the development of initiatives to improve clinician well-being and reduce burnout. A frequent invited lecturer on practice innovation, redesign and physician satisfaction, Dr. Sinsky has presented widely, both nationally and internationally.

Dr. Sinsky will give the keynote presentation on January 16 on how to create the organizational foundation for wellness and address the key drivers of burnout.

Nick Meo, MD and Russ Migita, MD, from the UW Medicine Center for Scholarship in Patient Care Quality and Safety, will facilitate a series of rapid-fire presentations on QI tools that can be used to improve well-being, followed by tabletop exercises and report-outs. The goals are to identify local root causes of physician burnout by creating a driver diagram; develop a set of measures to guide future improvement work; plan an intervention; and use an implementation toolkit to assist with local efforts to address burnout.
