As healthcare organizations continue dealing with the fallout of COVID-19 and staff shortages, other things that can harm patients include the lack of caregiver wellness. Promoting wellness and, in particular, mental wellbeing, is a top priority in 2022.
The 2022 CHI Risk Management Program Goal was announced on March 9, 2022, for CHI owners as “Provide wellness resources to reduce the risks and claims associated with caregiver burnout and address opportunities for improvement“. This page provides resources to support this goal.
