In recent years, there has been a growing appreciation for the threat burnout has on clinician and patient safety, and in response, many stakeholders are advocating for solutions at the systems level. As a health-care organization, surveying clinicians is central to understanding burnout's prevalence and impact. This quality improvement project assessed well-being metrics among advanced practice providers (APPs) in a large academic medical center and found statistically significant relationships between burnout, professional fulfillment, and turnover. In collaboration with organizational leadership, the survey results were used in the development of system-wide initiatives to mitigate burnout and support professional fulfillment among APPs.
