Coming Home to Primary Care: Organizational Well-Being
Organizational well-being has been misunderstood historically and may be conflated with personal/professional well-being and “self-care.” Therefore, it is important to reconcile professional and organizational well-being and to understand the ways in which these two concepts are complementary. Broadly, there are three main components of organizational well-being: leadership, climate, and culture. Each of these can be broken down into various subdomains. Leadership involves setting policy and distributing leadership. Climate involves the structures in place within an organization to support well-being. Culture involves the ways in which people actually behave in the organization, including efficiency and available support. Finally, we will discuss some examples of ways in which these goals have been or could be implemented within the integrated primary care setting.
