Clinician burnout is a national crisis, with anesthesiologists and surgeons reporting high rates of burnout and intent to leave. A systems-based approach is required to improve clinician well-being and retention, and stakeholder engagement across the work unit can help ensure clinician buy-in and avoid unintended consequences that may paradoxically worsen burnout. This project uses the Quality of Life Improvement (QOLI) approach to foster perioperative well-being by engaging anesthesiologists and surgeons to identify well-being threats and design perioperative well-being solutions. The study includes a cross-sectional mixed-methods (qualitative and quantitative) survey sent to anesthesiologists and surgeons as well as a joint-specialty town hall to review survey results and identify well-being priorities through live voting. Responses are shared with leadership to implement well-being solutions.
