In progress


While the wellbeing of healthcare workers is not a new issue, the pandemic provided a unique opportunity to achieve big and long-lasting improvement. Caring for those that care for others is paramount – we cannot give what we don’t have.

Part of the work of the Healthcare worker wellbeing centre, this initiatve will use improvement science to test and measure changes that lead to improved wellbeing through the Joy in Work framework.

Partnering with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), this initiative will support frontline healthcare workers, managers and executives to create system level changes across hospitals, community health, aged and primary care.


To improve wellbeing, increase staff engagement, and build a sense of meaning and connection to purpose.
