White Paper: Coaching for Doctors: A Balanced Life
Explores how coaching can help you in your work as a doctor and as an employer of doctors in four key ways:
- Deliver excellent patient care, improving health outcomes for the patient
- Achieve work-life balance for doctors
- How the systemic use of coaching can improve the whole healthcare system
- Prevent burnout systemically by using coaching as a means to build individual skills.
Healthcare leaders cannot continue to support systems and structures that lead to high levels of burnout in doctors and nurses year after year. The healthcare system is simply not sustainable in this context. Healthcare organisations could be and should be, healthy for everyone including every doctor. Coaching doctors can help achieve this goal.
This paper explores how the systemic use of coaching can help healthcare develop the skills of doctors so that they can lead teams more effectively and take better care of themselves, their colleagues and their patients. Coaching embedded at the most systemic level could mean that this more developed workforce could alter the healthcare system significantly to be safer and more effective for all.
The Thriving Doctor
When doctors are well, patient health outcomes and experience improve according to Psychologist Sharee Johnson, who has written a book called The Thriving Doctor – how to be more balanced and fulfilled working in medicine. Sharee has been coaching doctors to help them perform better in their caregiving roles, for their own wellbeing and to help improve the healthcare system since 2014.
Sharee’s hope for The Thriving Doctor is that:
- It will help Doctors take better care of themselves first. Only then can they really provide excellent care to patients
- Doctors and even a few other healthcare workers will use it to build and enhance their intrapersonal and interpersonal skills because they are vital to delivering excellent healthcare, building strong effective teams and maintaining a long term career in healthcare
- It will help non-doctors value doctors in ways that will lead to better health partnerships, better health outcomes all round.
